Trivia

Bruce MacVittie and Bert Pence were also in the first game. See more »

Goofs

When a person in the game is blasted by a shotgun during game play, the wound on that person is that of a bullet wound, and not a buckshot wound. A bullet wound (what is seen) is one small hole with a little blood around it, and a buckshot wound should be seen as a large splatter of blood on the person's body. See more »

Quotes

John Marston: While there are guns and money, there won't be any freedom.

Raising The Bar
7 September 2010 | by jjandsoccerr1See all my reviews

I have spent hundreds of hours immersed in video games. I have played everything from puzzle games to mass-multiplayer online games. I have received crappy grades in school because of video games. I have regretted entire summers spent in front of a TV screen, but now, as I sit at my computer, I reflect on those summers. I picture them now not as summers down the toilet but as summers that are a dark tunnel. A dark tunnel with a light at the end. A light that is the greatest game I have ever played, the climax of my gaming career, Red Dead Redemption. Through unfathomable detail, immense algorithms, and an uncanny amount of testing Rockstar successfully created a masterpiece which raises the bar to a point which I believe can not be reached with the same technology used to create Red Dead Redemption. New technology is needed to create a game that even competes with Red Dead Redemption. After playing Red Dead Redemption I may never feel another game is worth my time.
