Red Dead Redemption confessions

Couldn't play blackjack for sh*t, used a cheat when I was at %95 completion

 

Liar's dice was my favorite

 

I was good at pretending to be a honoured man. And then I'd murder the sh*t of everyone in Thieves' Landing and Casa Madrugada

 

To roleplay, I'd go to one of the camps in Tall Trees in MP, where I could stock ammo and refill dead-eye. Then I'd wait there to hunt some bears, especially with axe

 

Spent almost 500 hours in MP, all rifles, all sidearms except mauser, semi-auto shotty and basic sniper rifle were golden. TDM's were pretty good then, not like GTAO

 

I was super careful with my ammo in UN, never used it outside of missions-tasks

 

 

The song played after Dutch's death was touchy

I never played RDR until about 2014. Never finished Undead Nightmare yet.

I thought that the Mexico portion of the game drags on for too long, I enjoyed it up to a point but it tends to overstay it's welcome a bit.

I confess that sometimes I felt bad for killing horses while pursuing or shooting at horse-riding enemies. The mixture of their death animations and sound makes them believable.

On the Xbox 360 I never got 100% completion because I couldn't pass the 5 finger fillet in Mexico.

* I cried a little bit at the end of the game.

 

 

John Marston's death

 

 

I dont think i've ever done that because of a video game... :cry:

John Marston became my favorite gaming protagonist before i even finished the game. Undead Nightmare further cemented that.

 

Even though i knew John was going to die, i still choked up a bit at the scene. Can't imagine how surprised people was at this moment back in 2010.

i purchased RDR twice (once when it came out and another for $15)

 

i figured john was going to die because i saw my brother playing the game and he wad ahead of me in his playthrough. he was playing as a different character who i didn't know was jack at the time. i still found the scene sad though.

I didn't know about the game existing until I went to a friend's house and watched him play it. A month or two after the game was released, I bought it for myself and loved the whole game.

 

I 100% both RDR and Undead Nightmare.

 

I once wiped out a whole table in Liar's Dice in Multiplayer with just one die left and got the trophy for it.

 

I would often hunt down and kill other players in Hardcore Free Aim lobbies because I enjoyed it and also because I'm an asshole.

 

I met my best friend through RDR when I kept sniping him repeatedly and he could never find me. Been friends with him for almost 6yrs now and plan to move closer to him and his girlfriend within a year or two.

 

I wouldn't play story mode with cheats enabled until I had gotten all of the story mode trophies.

 

John Marston was the first character in a video game that I had actually felt emotion for upon his death.

 

It felt so good to kill Edgar Ross.

 

I contributed to the Wikia for RDR when the game was still new.

 

I plan on being a Hardcore Free Aim asshole again when RDR2 is released. If Rockstar doesn't f*ck up the multiplayer by not having a Hardcore Free Aim lobby.

• I sometimes think Red Dead Redemption is better than GTA:IV, especially the multiplayer. (When it still actually worked.)

 

• I 100% completed both RDR and UN.

 

• I don't know how to play poker, so it was a bitch getting the games beat for 100%.

 

• I think it was a missed opportunity for R* not to include a zombie free mode for multiplayer.

 

• I actually dont hate playing as Jack Marston, however i think that R* should of made the cheat code to play as Jack, work to let you play as John after the game is complete.

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.

 

Dude, I was the same. I was pissed off at the serious tone all games were taking. Because everything went HD and next get they're well like.. come now, this is serious now. :p I've been watching serious films and serious TV shows and a lot of these games seemed to want to be treated like movie or TV show and not a game. They just couldn't compare. I thought for some gamers that weren't used to watching a proper crime drama, it was the best thing they've ever seen/play.. so deep! Then you realize they grew up on Fast and Furious films and Super Hero films. No offence to those films but there's hardly a multidimensional character between the lot of them. If your game wants to be taken seriously like a good film or show, I'm going to compare it to the The Wire or The Sopranos or Goodfellas etc. I don't mind if you make obvious references to a film but going all serious in what seems to be the hopes of desperately wanting to be taken seriously like a show of film an the game play not being all there isn't my idea of a great game.

 

I was all for games being like movies or shows but then realized that I just want my games to be games. Took me a few years but I'm sure I want my games to have all the game-play elements and the fun ones too locked-in and then build a story that can be supported by by the fun game play. Don't cut out gameplay potential because it doesn't suit the narrative of the plot. And around that time it was story over gameplay for the likes of IV. I think most games have moved on from that time and they're starting to embrace the idea that while cinematic elements in gaming is welcome, they don't need to emulate the formula completely to compete with films.

My biggest confession about this game..I don't like it, and I can't connect with it.

 

So much so that I won't be purchasing RDR2, and hoping GTA O stays on for longer. Just not my type of game.

I feel the life and atmosphere in this game is the best Rockstar have created, so far...

 

San Andreas was an easy number 2, but this just takes that games real sense of 'world going on around you' to a new level... GTA V, as much as I love any GTA too, just didn't feel as tightly knit... Maybe just a touch too repetitive in places... Maybe with GTA V, as it was 3 main characters, it was harder to invest fully into one directly... Maybe Trevor, but he's just a loopy sod that makes me laugh, after long, it can grate...

 

Don't get me wrong, as much as I say one game feels better than others, this is R* with RDR/GTA... The worst of any of those 2 franchise games is 100 times better than damn near anything I've played, you know, so by saying RDR is better in mood and atmosphere than IV or V, is by no means a slur against these awesome games I've spent far too long playing, lol...

 

I also love how near 10 years on, this game doesn't age as bad as GTA. I find San An, and IV tricky now, more-so VC and LC too, but this game, it just clicks into place.

To this day I still find it insane how Jack might have lived long enough to have seen both world wars, owned a personal car, witnessed the rise of technology (cell phones, computers, TVs), viewed movies with sound and colors, watched the moon landing, and experience rap becoming mainstream.

 

Hell, he was probably in a nursing home by the time Tommy Vercetti was released from prison and peacefully laying in his death bed once Carl Johnson returned to San Andreas.

i agree that is very cool. to think he met so many legends from the west. and even was a part of the wild west. and yet he could have died when we are so very technologically advanced. after i saw your post. i looked to see the oldest people and there were people that were born around jacks birth year and before. and some of them died in the mid 2000s. jack could have possibly seen all of that. even red dead revolver.

It's also cool knowing he was 52 during L.A. Noire's events. And who knows, maybe he was still breathing when Jimmy Hopkins arrived at Bullworth (assuming Bully is set in the 90s given its retro feel and references to the Internet and CD players).

I'm so addicted to hunting in this game, I have over $100,000 from it now lol. Nothing to spend it on but it's still satisfying. Pop on the expert hunter outfit, head to Tall Trees for bears, elk and bobcats, Great Plains for wolves, beavers, foxes and cougars (and anything else I find), then once I've maxed out the number of bear and wolf parts I can carry (you're allowed 99 of each item, wolves and bears rack up the fastest especially with the expert hunter outfit giving you double the parts) go on a long ride to Escalera bagging some extra plants and animal parts and maybe sneakily rustle some livestock using a knife along the way, and sell the lot for a good $20,000-$30,000 profit.

 

I wish you could gamble with more money, I'd have some fun with that. But just riding around hunting with the sights and sounds of this game is great.

Most my money was made from  farming the idiots who play 5-finger-fillets, its my favorite activity.

 

I purposely get caught cheating in poker just to have a duel with someone.

So I played RDR2 first so I have a slightly different view from most of you I would imagine:

 

. I felt some shootouts such as the one when you first get to Mexico go on way to long

 

. Was not a big fan of most of the Mexico story (other than the Landon Ricketts parts and finding Javier and Bill) 

 

. Preferer the gameplay of RDR2 (horse riding most of all)

 

.Only stuck to main quests with the exception of the strange man missions. (due to not enjoying the gameplay as much as RDR2)

 

After all that I would say I did enjoy RDR I wish I played it back in 2010. Hopefully the game will get a remake someday 🤞

Since finding out that Nastas is voiced by the same actor as Dutch (which once you know is REALLY obvious) that's literally all I can hear and think about whenever he's on screen.
