Red Dead Redemption Gameplay Footage Has Been Released And, Yup, Rockstar Did It Again
Awesome. Awesome to the max. See, there’s a reason why Rockstar takes a few decades between their flagship games. These guys could clearly make a shit ton more bank by releasing a half-assed Red Dead Redemption or Grand Theft Auto every single year. Call Of Duty shamelessly does it because they know they’ve got the market by the balls. Hell, Madden almost releases the same exact game every August. Not Rockstar. They take pride in their art. There was a 6-year window between Grand Theft Auto IV (2008) and Grand Theft Auto V (2013), and it was WELL worth the wait. Now there’s a 7-year hiatus between Red Dead Redemption and this game. Just look how far this game has come already:
Granted, technology and graphics have improved drastically in 7 years, but still. I can’t even begin to imagine the immenseness of this map and gameplay. There was a HUGE upgrade to both the vastness and attention to detail from GTA IV to GTA V. Expect this jump to be along the same lines. Not to mention the storyline in the original Red Dead Redemption was better than 99% of movies to ever grace the screen. This game will be a prequel of sorts revolving around Dutch and his gang, so it’s safe to say we’ll see the main protagonist John Marston (RIP, forget about that little punk Jack) from the original game in the mayhem. October can’t get here soon enough.
And it’ll only be a matter of time before we see outlaw zombies again. Can’t hate on a little killing of the undead. Again.
