Yes, as a fan of spaghetti westerns and shooters, I waited Red Dead Redemption for a long time and the hype made me more and more curious each day I waited for it. However… The sequel of the great ps 2 game (in spite of all the effort devoted to it) was full of unconvincing characters, repeating/similar missions and a boring story line. I even did not wonder about the ending and eventually sold the game for a fair price without even feeling the need to finish it. My expectations were high but the product was less than satisfying. As I previously said, I like shooters (my favorite games are those of the Battlefield series). But RDR… Sorry but, it was definitely a mess… You may think differently, but I want to hear about those who don't. Waiting for your comments…
I feel the game dragged a bit in the Mexico section but overall I felt it was quite an enjoyable game. It had good gameplay mechanics, a great world and a decent story. I wouldn't say its the best story going but it was an interesting tale nontheless. I guess it can vary though, I mean i personally thought GTA4 had a pretty terrible storyline and I'm a huge fan of the GTA Series but I just am not that big on GTA4.
The co-op mode, online free-roam and Undead Nightmare for RDR are great additions though I must admit.
Yes, the game was not what i expected it to be based on what people had told me. It was a still a good game, but i guess the game just wasn't for me.
I believe one problem with the game was something like, 'There comes the fat man selling medicine, here we go again, racing' or 'that grave digger is approaching, another shooting episode is on the way'. However… Apart from the 'no surprises-story line', what was terribly boring was the repetitive actions like skinning animals or collecting flowers along the way. Whenever you skin an animal, it's the same animation is on the screen -blood splatters on the screen- and the same repetitive quotes like, 'Arggh, what have you been eating?'. Hmmm? What does a coyote or bear eats? It doesn't matter anyway. I grow tired of doing the same thing again and again and that's why I quickly got fed up with shooting and skinning poor animals. Moreover, the game has a sick 'trophy' like "kidnap and tie a lady, place her on the railroad and have her squashed by the train'. Yeah, Rockstar. No wonder that their games always receive high points: "Dude, any point under 90 will have terrible consequences for us, let's give them a 95, otherwise they may tie us and throw us under the wheels of a train -or they may stop our cars in the traffic, force us out of the car and smash our brains with iron pipes (remember GTA?)". Anyway, I believe I won't be buying another Rockstar game in the future… Full of mindless violence and psychotic intentions, these games provide real bad role models -especially for kids-…
I forgot, M-rated games are totally aimed towards kids purchasing them :P
Yes. M-rated for most people equals to: "Let's buy it for our naughty kid, who is simply a little monster and make him busy with games of violence, so that he won't destroy the furniture and beat the neighbors' kids -at least during the time he plays them-". Of course, M-rated games should not be played by kids. But (sadly) they are. And no one can prevent this because their parents are irresponsible. Join the fps servers and see it for yourself. And I think the Rockstar games are no exception…
Even for adults, tying helpless women with a lasso and throwing them under trains can't be ethical…
We can compare an awesome fps with GTA:
Bad Company 2: You are a soldier, you do what's your duty to stay alive and kill the soldiers of the opposing force who have equal opportunity to defend themselves (which is ok)…
GTA: You are a bandit and you can kill old people and helpless women who have no means to protect themselves and take the money they leave behind… (which is…? Yeah you know it can't be ok, even for a game)
If this example is not enough, I have nothing more to say…
It's a game, not real life, get over it.
Yeah, but not everyone can separate real life and computer games or movies. There are many examples for this. So I believe that at least a bit of ethics should be added to games. Ok, I am getting over it… Yeah I'm… I'm nearly there… Ok, I got over it.
