Seeing as Red Dead has its own section now and I like the idea of confessions, I thought why not Red Dead confessions? 

 

 

I wanted to kill Abraham Reyes despite him saving John I thought he was a major dick.

 

Luisa is the most Likable female in any video game I have played, and It was sad when she was killed.

 

Killing Da Santa was satisfying.

 

Bonnie annoys me.

 

I think Red Dead has a very well executed story which is fantastic, but it loses its oomph quicker than say IV or V. 

 

John Marston is my third favorite Rockstar Protagonist behind Niko Bellic & Max Payne.

 

And The Truth Will Set You Free is my favorite mission.

 

Bounty hunting is my favorite side mission/activity.

 

I hate the Cattle Herding missions.

 

Feel free to share some confessions.   ;)

I have a crush on Bonnie.

 

I cried the first time I finished John's part of the game.

 

I also teared up the first time riding into Mexico (due to the sheer brilliance and beauty of what I was witnessing - visually and audibly)

 

Landon Ricketts is one of my favorite characters of all time (and I want Kurt Russell to play him if we ever get a film adaptation - yes, I dream big)

I barley, if even did, used fast travel options like the stagecoach. I enjoyed my moments looking at the surrounding scenery while going from point A to B.

 

The only game that I cared about 100%ing it.

 

The total playtime was over 500 hours, including the time spent on team deathmacthing. I always enjoyed playing in Armadillo map and using LeMat-Revolver.

 

I bought the game twice because the first disc had a little crack and didn't work after that.

 

Bought all DLCs and enjoyed most of the new contents, especially new maps. Was good at calling bluff and bluffing others in multiplayer's Liar's dice. I remember winning matches in a row a couple of times :) 

 

Always played like a decent man and had no intention to cause mayhem, stealing or killing for no purpose. Fame and Honor meters were both full and I had a good reputation!

 

And of course, for the biggest confession of all time, I am excitedly waiting for the next game in the Red Dead franchise!!

-When I first got the game and played it to death it made me obsessed with Westerns. I ended up buying 3:10 To Yuma, Unforgiven, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly etc.

 

-Most people didn't seem to like playing as Jack at the end, but I didn't mind. Thought he was decent. 

 

-West Elizabeth is my least favourite part of the map. It's still beautiful, but I like New Austin and Nuevo Paraiso more.

 

-Horseshoes is my favourite activity.

 

-If it were made into a movie I always thought Sam Elliot would be the perfect actor to play Ricketts. ^ Kurt Russell also as a couple of posts above. :p

I've never finished it. As much as I liked the game, I got bored.

 

I have the GOTY (or whatever it's called) edition but I never bothered to start Undead Nightmare. Because f*ck zombies.

 

Also, if I didn't have this edition, I know I'd be immensely frustrated and pissed off that the best horse is not available right off the bat. I'd hate to ride those walking horse corpses with no health and stamina. I hate games that deliberately frustrate you with sh*tty equipment at the start and only give you the good stuff 5 minutes before the end.

 

I launched MP only once, just to see what's up.

 

It's one of only 2 R* games I don't have in digital format.

I love John's wife.. she's hot as f*ck, I wish there is a "hot coffee" mode from GTA SA or anything alike.

 

When I approached the two missions "You Shall Know The Truth" & "And The Truth Shall Set You Free" I thought the gang's boss is John's real father, but nah.

 

I loved playing in Mexico and I liked that grave robber Seth.

 

I also like the two brothers/friends that one of them said "They call me El Rato there, which means the cat" and that scientist made my laugh my ass off every time I heard him talking.

 

I enjoyed playing poker so much and lasso'ing random people, lol.

When I checked the stats while jumping between helping the rebels and the Mexican Army, I saw that I had killed 100 rebels and 100 Mexican soldiers. At that moment, all the immersion had shattered and I was completely confused. How could John murder in cold blood all of those rebels fighting for their freedom and then have the balls to go back to their camp and just act as if he did nothing?

This is one of the reasons why the Mexico part of the story is my least favorite. I think that Rockstar could've written a better story in Nuevo Paraiso, but do you remember when Archer Fordham told Marston that he ran like a headless chicken in Mexico looking for Bill Williamson? it was a fitting description for what John did there and goes well along the story.

Yeah, but still. You're right, though. They could've definitely wrote this part better, like maybe give John better motivation to actually help the Mexican Army rather than "we'll help you find Williamson but first you gotta murder every rebel you see".

I love assaulting Dos Hermanas, and killing every Hermana I see with the shotgun, the double-barrel one.

The first two times I attempted to play RDR, I absolutely hated it and grew bored of it within the first hour. Over time, playing it again, it kind of grew on me and as I progressed in the story really came to enjoy the game. I'm not a huge fan of Wild Westerns but like I said, it grows on me.

I love Bonnie and right now, starting my third playthrough, I still want John to dump his wife for her.  Even though he's an honorable man (the way I play him) and wouldn't do it.

 

Seth creeps me the hell out and I tried really hard to kill him on my first play.

 

The passage to Mexico sequence is the best thing I've experienced in a video game.  So simple but it gave me goosebumps the first time, when I had no idea it was coming. 

 

The biggest mistake in the game, and the only thing I really dislike about it, is what an annoying jackass Jack Marston is.  With some open world games I just keep playing them long past the end of the story, but with Red Dead I've stopped after the last mission each time.

 

The second biggest mistake in the game is that multiplayer is just a vacant wasteland.  I wish I liked it more.

 

Regardless of the above two points, this remains perhaps my favorite game of all time.  The next one, whenever it arrives, is a blind purchase for me.

You completely missed the point if your take away was that the rebels were fighting for freedom. 

 

Reyes is no better than Allende, he orders protesters shot for f*ck's sake. John's dialogue towards Reyes reflects this pretty heavily. 

John only gets involved in the conflict to find Bill and Javier, which is why he actively plays both sides until Allende tried to bump him off.

I like playing as Jack. Sure some people say he's whiny, but give him a chance. Both of his parents passed away faster than you can say "Work you damn nab".

I had this game on the PS3 but then I went to EBGames and traded in for some games I don't even remember.

I was fortunate to get the game on my last day in a job and had a full summer playing the off line game before venturing into the online world.  Definitely a very memorable set of characters, even the ones who should be annoying (West Dickens, Seth, Irish) help John so they can't be disliked.  Good idea to have varying intensity of online experiences (I'm a crap shooter at the best of times), loved the mini games especially outwitting people at Liars Dice.  Still remember my first hideout attack at Pike's Basin and being impressed by the intensity and achievement on completion. However, the mountain cats attack in the snowy hills was utterly frustrating, took me hours to lure them to the cabin and finally reach the kill target. Great fun with posse mine attacks, slamming cannon balls into the army from the top of the fortress.  Never ever managed a melee kill on a bear.  Also, very few hackers/modders in RDR compared to the worst days of GTAO.  Got the Undead game and was fun but ultimately a short experience, online wave survival game obviously lifted to GTAO.

- I don't like killing horses.

 

- If my horse ever dies, I just reload my save file.

 

- I have only used the Improved Campsite once.

I got a genuine shock when I completed the Flowers for a Lady sidequest, I thought it was going to be a nice moment in between John's quest, but no, it was not.

* I very rarely (if ever) use the campfire fast travel or use taxis in RDR, as id rather just ride my horse everywhere.

 

* I find it pretty funny to make my own unicorn using a horse and an axe.

 

* Ive 100% completed both RDR and Undead Nightmare.

As Jack or John, I would ride to Thieves Landing and wait for that 'lil interactive event when saving a hogtied prostitute. I would complete the event and place the hogtied prostitute on my horse and ride back to the Marston Ranch and place and untie the hogtied lady. She would then clean my house.

 

Originally I put her on my bed and untied her............but nothing happened. Guess my charming ways weren't good enough.

Confession about the game:

On first playtrought, i never really loved RDR. Sure, it's a good game, but it was released during the "sad era" of videogame and i was fed up of "serious" games with a dramatic twist at the end. Gta IV, MGS IV, TLAD... RDR was (unfortunately) just one too many for my taste

On my next playtroughts... well, actually there was only one more. Never finished that, got bored.

I can objectively say that RDR is a good game... but i can't really go into it no matter what.

I have never let John's honour go down intentionally, I have to play the game as a good guy or else I feel strangely guilty. Anytime I want to raise hell I have to use the bandana so the honour stat remains unchanged.
