this may seem a little off topic but its funny. a long time ago back near when red dead came out. I saw a youtube video titiled red dead redemption sucks. all the guy did was complain because there was no blood on the knife when you skinned an animal. he kept complaining about it. it was funny. but back on topic. the things I disliked were.
no swimming. I know this has been mentioned plenty before but it was so annoying when you accidentally fall in the water. I cant count the times in thieves landing were instead of going on the bridge I went into the water. it was annoying. but I think I know why john dies when going in the water. john marston has the power of the deadeye devil fruit. yes that's how john gained his deadeye. he ate the devil fruit. this was a joke but I hope some people get the reference.
small storyline. redemption had a small story even smaller than gta 5. I loved the story I thought it was great. but I think a lot more could have been added. more mexico missions. I would have loved to see more battles in the Mexican revolution. they missions were fun but it would have been cool if we saw some full scale battles like the civil war. cannons everywere. calvalry and infantry hundreds at once. that would have been so cool. also It would have been nice to have some civilian non war missions to mix it up. and definitely more landon rickets.
small native American role. I love Indians in westerns it is very iconic. so I was surprised/ saddened when they only had a small role. I do find it interesting how dutch was able to take the natives and form a gang with them. but other than a few story missions they aren't very common to find as npcs. the only time I see them is either at a random event or I see one at the five finger fillet table in manzanita post.
no john marston or gang backstory dlc. undead nightmare was fun yea and one of the best dlcs I have played but it would have been nice if they gave us a johns gang backstory singleplayer dlc. it would have been nice to see the gang when the were younger and a kid jack. we could see how they were when they were friends. plus I feel like bill Javier and dutch had very little screen time in the main story so it would be nice to see them again and learn more about them. it is possible they didn't do this because we might get to see the gang in rdr 2 and they were saving it. I hope so anyway. but oh well at least redemption got a singleplayer dlc unlike gta 5.
