Red Dead is Rockstar's best game. It's better than all the GTAs
can you said that to GTA 3 (The Godfather of the Genre and the third main game in GTA Family that changed a Genre forever).Nah i dont think so.Pls let be on topic,i dont want to start again,and this topic is about RDR an GTA 5.
It's his opinion, an opinion I happen to at least partially share. GTA 3 was a good game for its time, full stop.
Some seem to confuse "best" with "most innovative". To put it bluntly, saying GTA III is Rockstar's best game is like saying that Ford Model T is the best car ever build. Which is nothing short of insulting. Sure both revolutionized their respective niches to a certain extent, no argument there. But their revolutionary / cult status doesn't mean they're still, nor were for a prolonged period of time king of the hill. Au contraire mon frare. Putting them in perspective and comparing them with what we have today, they seem like little more than obsolete rough sketches. Hardly anything "Best" worthy.
OT: Red Dead Redemption's map and especially the countryside was not only better texture-wise, it was also much better mapped and proportioned. RDR's countryside was dotted with proper believable Flora and Fauna. Whereas GTA V's countryside feels more like the run down set of a low budget flick, with the occasional astray deer and/or mountain lion popping its head in. Rush job, parody... ? I don't know, but it certainly doesn't feel true to character, which is sad especially after playing a game as Brilliant all around as RDR.
