To me, Red Dead Redemption is Rockstar's masterpiece. I think it's the best game of this entire generation. I think it's also Rockstar's best story. The gameplay, voice acting, soundtrack, and the world itself is just incredible. It's one of the few games that I will always remember. 

 

What do you guys think? Do you prefer GTA V over RDR? What do you think?

I prefer GTA V. RDR was an amazing game, but I'm not much of a western guy and I'm much more interested modern-day crime movies/game. RDR is probably the best story Rockstar has ever told though, I agree there.

That is a very hard choice to make. They are both great games.

In terms of story? I think RDR's was better because of it's execution, GTA V's felt rushed at some parts. It felt as if you jumped around a lot until the story finally ended.

 

I prefer modern games to westerns, but RDR was just a tad bit better than GTA.

That doesn't mean jack diddly squat. And I agree RDR does have a better story.  Just because it has the best sales doesn't make it the best game.

Better is subjective. It can't be a fact. I sold more weed than the drug dealer down the street, doesn't mean my weed's better.

Overall I do prefer GTAV simply for the variety of vehicles and the modern setting. To me Cars>Horses but that is just me.

This is entirely subjective, in fact I've no idea why we're even discussing this as it can only lead to rampant trolling and moronic behaviour around the board.

RDR is like a western GTA so there's no point in comparing.

I have to go with Red Dead Redemption. True masterpiece. I'm 100% sure that even the next Red Dead title won't touch it.

RDR is inferior to GTA V in every way. I mean no disrespect to RDR, considering that many of RDR's mechanics helped carve gta 5 into what it is, but gta 5 is undoubtedly superior to RDR and any other game out there right now. GTA V is not just a game, it's an alternate reality.

@OP 

 

I agree with you completely. Red Dead Redemption was and still is Rockstar's crown jewel. I started RDR again, and good Heavens! What a game it is! The ambient music; the top-notch voice acting and the detailing of the world in itself :inlove:

You guys forget, if RDR wasn't so damn f'n amazing, GTA V doesn't sell $1B in three days.

GTA V's record breaking run is a testament to Rockstar's PREVIOUS games.

No one bought V thinking it would be the sh*t all on its own. People bought it thinking it would combine the best of both worlds, a little bit of IV but a lot of bit of Red Dead Redemption.

And unfortunately anyone who thought that was ultimately disappointed.

I agree, as many improvmements as GTA brings to the table, RDR is still a better game. In fact Red Dead Redemption is the best game ever in my opinion, and the only game that could ever be better is the next Red Dead game.

RDR and GTA V are different games. I think many people prefer RDR because of the setting.

In terms of technical aspects, GTA V is simply better, bigger and more polished. The only thing that RDR does better is storytelling, characters and writing. But yeah, we're still talking about two of the best games of this generation.

 No it's your narrow-minded opinion. R* put way more money into marketing GTA V and it was already a popular franchise so the sales figures are meaningless. Both are amazing games in their own right and preference will vary from person to person.

I disagree.

I find GTA V to be king, it exceeded my expectations ALOT. Especially the online portion.

GTA V seems like a a game I can play for atleast a decade, there is so much stuff to do and the online can be very fun and interesting at times.

I thought RDR was a good game, but it can't touch GTA V imo.

I think both of them are outstanding games.  I will say that Red Dead Redemption is a much more focused game though (in terms of story and features).  GTA V is all over the place in comparison.  That doesn't necessarily make it worse (at least not for me) since GTA V also does many things better than Red Dead Redemption.

Yes.. because popularity = having an amazing game than the other.

 

I agree with OP, GTA V is a bit overrated
