To you, to the rest of the world GTA V is a masterpiece and considered the best game of all time.

I love GTA V but you are not helping our cause. RDR is a masterpiece as well.

 

 

Did little RDR accomplish this? Nope. GTA V, UNDISPUTED goat game:

 

-Best-selling action-adventure videogame in 24 hours
 
-Best-selling videogame in 24 hours
 
-Fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion
 
-Fastest videogame to gross $1 billion
Highest grossing videogame in 24 hours
 
-Highest revenue generated by an entertainment product in 24 hours
 
-Most viewed trailer for an action-adventure videogame

 

 

Sales don't mean everything. RDR also sold tons of copies. :)

 

 

Didn't break those records :). GTA V > RDR, that's a FACT.

 

 

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.

RDR was the better game, It had a better atmosphere and the wilderness was much better. I kind of regret selling my copy but I will buy it again.

I agree that the masterpiece that is RDR is still king, however I don't find GTA V to be amazing.

GTA V was made out to be the cure fore cancer. It was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too overhyped.

As far as sales go that's just great marketing at work, COD sells really well but I doubt a lot of people would praise it.

RDR would've been stellar had they let us drive that car, but otherwise, it was R*'s best, I agree. However, it's far from perfect. I say let R* San Diego make GTA from now on.

I see your point. GTA V is a great game but in some ways it's just another very good GTA game and isn't perhaps revolutionary in a way that even GTA IV was. RDR was an absolute masterpiece for it's genre for the reasons you mentioned. Greatest story R* have ever told, the wilderness was brilliant and the soundtrack was superb too. Overall it was a game that I didn't expect to enjoy too much, but ended up loving.

Why is that url hidden under 2 short links? Both tiny and bit.ly? What's the point in that? And what the hell is hisway?

 

I think that's a malicious link.. The tiny link goes to a bit.ly and the bit.ly goes to a website called hisway. Dunno what it is, but he seems to keep linking it all over the place.

RDR's story is emotionally engaging believable and it was filled with missions that suited the story and the time period. Whilst GTA V's story is filled to the brim with over-to-top action packed missions that make the missions that should stand out seem lacklustre. 

 

Oh and to the point some are making about motorised vehicles. Cars don't fit the Red Dead series, horses are true to its identity.

imo, not only does GTA V destroy RDR.... RDR is one of the most overrated game this gen.  I tried getting into it, but it was too damn boring, and the story through out the game was terrible. People want to praise is because of the ending, well the ending does not make up for the rest of the game.

 

After the first couple of times trying to play it, I started reading about how people thought the game was God's gift to this world... so tried and tried and tried... but every time I turned the game on and tried playing... I was bored within minutes.  btw, to all the kids... pretty graphics do not make a game good.

And what horses they had! Best horse sim in the history of video games! :^:

Nah man.  RDR is the king of wild west free roams, and king of wild west gaming in general, but V is easily the better free roam in general.  Whenever I see these threads/comments, I feel like I missed something major in my play through of RDR.

While I'm loving GTA V, there's something special about RDR/Undead Nightmare that's hard to put my finger on.  Probably my favorite game of this generation, and possibly my favorite game of all time. 

 

The setting, emotional story, characters, random events, hunting, etc.  made for a perfect storm of a game.  I still remember that first jaw dropping momment of riding out into the wilderness of New Austin with 'Born Unto Trouble' playing in the background.  I just sat on my horse for 10 minutes observing and listening to stunning game world....then a g@d d@mn f@#king cougar killed my horse !!

Indeed, but that was around the time that automobiles were introduced and I think it signified the end of the cowboy way--the end of an era. After beating RDR, I think that car should've been available only in Blackwater, and it should be slow as sh*t, but drivable. It would've been a nice touch, in my opinion. I also think we should've had hang gliders in RDR. Ones that work! That could've really raised the quality level of RDR. It would've made sense that JM's son, a new generation, has access to an automobile, also to signify the start of a new era.....GTA. Then, we could've had a GTA sequel that takes place in the 20's with Jack as the protag. The prohibition era; Him making runs for people like Alky Bone. It would've been the perfect bridge of universes/worlds, and set us up for GTA: The Roaring 20's

 

Goddamn I should work for R*.

Remember how everyone said RDR was GTA with horses when it was announced? That's why they didn't let us drive cars.

RDR is indeed an amazing game, but we're talking oranges to apples here. They're both equally fun in my opinion but in terms of features and the way that fun is had? Light years apart, simple as that. Riding around on a horse in GTA as a means of transportation would just be lame and having an armored, supercharged Buffalo Sport in RDR would just be stupid in terms of authenticity.

I will say though, that I think RDR was a little more polished in terms of features, but to be honest, the story didn't completely do it for me. I don't know about everyone else but I think GTA5's ability to draw you into each character is amazing. When I play as Franklin, I feel like a thug lol. I feel gangster, like I've seen the worst of the streets and I'm basically getting my hustle on, but I'm not some psycho killer. I have no sense of money management with him and always want to drop money into my car and clothes. I play as Trevor, I crash through fences, smash into cars, pick fights with people, blow up police cars at the police station, and generally just don't give a damn. I loot and steal for fun and prefer my armored truck over fast and fancy cars. When I play as Michael, I make more money and hardly spend any. I wander a lot, go biking/running and pretend I'm a retired rich guy. I don't feel the need to drop every dime on flashy stuff. I also feel the pain, depression, and confusion of a man who wants a normal life but can't control his anger and frustration, who can't figure out how to have a good relationship with his family, and despite the money, I feel like he's just doomed to be unhappy. Keep in mind I'm only 56% through.

I didn't really get any of that out of RDR. I felt like some badass, gun-slinging one man army who would steal off the dead, kill bears and wild boars with a knife, and shoot down anyone in his path...but I'm supposed to be the good guy??
