I wonder if I'll need to play RDR1 in order to enjoy RDR2.
I'm reading the words you've typed, but I don't understand them. Did it just slip through your radar? With 8 months to go, get a copy and have at it. It was my game of the year in 2010!
I don't always play open world games because I have a tendency to get distracted by side quests, then bored, then quit playing them all together.

The fact that I played through GTAV twice is a minor miracle, but I found everything about that game to be outstanding.

GTA V is the only GTA game I've ever finished - so I can at at least relate to getting bored, distracted or overwhelmed. I treated GTA V like it was my job and managed to finally finish it years after it came out.

I think the reason I loved Red Dead Redemption was the setting and the story. Yes, you can get overwhelmed with stuff to do and I suppose you could get bored if you don't stick to the story. However I liked the characters and plot so much, I felt driven to move forward. But either way, open world western? Yes please.

RDR was the second game for my PS3 that I bought. It was also my first Rockstar game since the original top-down GTA games, so it was my first introduction to their brand of modern gameplay, and then I went and retroactively played San Andreas, GTA4 and V. The thing that had hooked me about RDR was the tone and mood they had set and the appropriately wide expanses. It was the perfect setting for an open-world game, and there just weren't many western games to begin with.

The ending was unsual in the sense that you get to then play as the Son, and the only other game I've encountered where a character switch happens like this is with L.A Noire, and that is also a Rockstar (well, published at least) game.

FYI, while you wait for the new one there is now an upgrade of the original that takes it to 4k!

I honestly am not 100% certain, but I don't think it does. However, if you have an X on a 1080 screen it will use supersampling to still provide a clearer picture (based on the 4k) then the original.

Funny that an Xbox 360 game is what's making me consider upgrading to an X more than ever.

I played around with this some last night, and man is it an improvement. I can actually see things (like enemies) that I could never see before.

Don't get me wrong, this doesn't do miracles here, Marston still walks around like he has a broomstick up his butt. But it's a huge improvement over the original. And very pretty too.

(And I had forgotten everything about how to play the game, so I ended up restarting the game. I think it's about the 4th time that I've restarted it.)

For the record I don't really care. I own both. I was always an xbox guy but have switched teams based on what I felt were more compelling exclusives on the PS4. My historical xbox games are Dead Rising and Forza. I can play the Forza games on my PC and Dead Rising 4 sucked. ANyway, pr0ner's post got me to check the status of 4k projectors again and low and behold they are both available and affordable now! I may just get to play PS4 in 4k after all.

Just finish my first RDR single play through , i must say it is really a well make well polish game, but it just stick too close to GTA formula, some of the characters really should have more story to them , like the old gunslinger, the indian informant ,macfarlane family.

the first act really is the high light, all things in western movie do show up in game. second act if it up to me, i shoot all those dirtbags the first moment they show up and find a way to complete the quest on my own, too bad RDR is not those kind of game. Marston just keep get pull around sure is not as bad ass as he should be.

the strangers stories are fun if they are more branch out will be nice, really love the treasure hunt , they are just the right difficulty not too dull as just another marker on the map.some of the treasure even i get to the right location still not able to find it without some hints that's how treasure hunt should be.

the auto aim i understand why they make it as default setting, but it just make shoot out dull , once i get the hang of the game i just switch to manual aim ,sure make shoot out lot more excite but still not too difficult with deadeye.

Any one love western sure RDR are one of the great, but for myself it is a good but not great as it can be game.

too bad seem very few play MP on PS3 any more , really want to do some Co-op see how it go, now just free roam with dead match.

2 things bugged me on the first game. The ending..I didn't like that barn scene at all and I didn't care for playing the part after that really. And the other thing was how the 2 idiot cops just led John aground and he took it. He was supposed to be a big time outlaw once. He should have killed them LONG before the ending.

I haven’t seen much about multiplayer gameplay (not that I’ve looked much; I’m also already sold day one), but friend me up on PS4 if you’re looking for some gang action. I expect they’ll keep GTA Online as the massive cash cow it is, but if RDR II multi is at least as good as the first I’ll be pleased.
