You might want to check your math, you say TLOU is superior, but this section of your post indicates that RDR/GTAV is superior to TLOU (Which is actually true, everyone in my school was bored to sh*t from just watching TLOU).

Both The Last of Us and Red Dead Redemption bought something new to gaming that we haven't seen before or in a while.
Not saying you're wrong redx, but it genuinely surprises me when people make such big and bold claims, but don't actually elaborate on what they're saying. RDR isn't really anything "new" to me. Ever played a game called GUN? That's an open world western that predates RDR by some 4 years. I love RDR, but I don't think it really brought anything new to the genre except exceptional detail and an authentic dying west.
TLOU is in a similar boat. Post apocalyptic/survival horrors aren't a new thing to gaming. It basically plays like an Uncharted game. What gameplay elements make it "new"? A great/engaging story alone doesn't cut it IMO.
I just think when people make claims like that they should back themselves up otherwise why say it? I agree that generally GTA V follows the same GTA formula, but considering TLOU is a new I.P and RDR is still apart of a relatively young franchise neither are particularly revolutionary. Neither have had an impact on their genre like games such as GTA III, Doom etc did back in their day.
Both are great games, but you need to be more honest instead of blindly saying they both brought something new without any further explanation. Perhaps because you don't genuinely believe they do is my assumption..
