The Uncle Appreciation Posse

Recommended Posts

Reno_

He was everyone's favourite character in RDR (fact) and he's back in action in RDR2 as part of the Van Der Linde gang.

We will finally get the answers to the most important questions everyone had after RDR such as: "Why is Uncle so lazy?", "How does John know him and end up with him in Beecher's hope?" and the most important question of them all: "Why is Uncle called Uncle?". All of this will surely be answered in RDR2.

While we wait eagerly to find out more about Uncle during these 5 months, let's appreciate the drunken legend that is Uncle.

 

We first meet him after John reunites with his family along with his beautiful beard and some yellow stuff that we hopefully find the origin of in RDR2. We find out Uncle has been part of the Van Der Linde gang by the latest railer and IGN previews. And who could forget Uncle in Undead Nightmare as the first zombie John comes across.

He helped John with his ranch (although it took some threats) and died protecting John and his family which is still by far the most tragic death in any R* game to date.

Let's remember and appreciate this legendary outlaw and remember why we all think he's our favourite character from RDR.

As Uncle would say: "Why don't I gets a warm and tender embrace?"

I remember John giving him a hard time about the state of the ranch and his laziness etc.

 

Since it was within walking distance, it's not hard to picture Unc down by the river with a jug and a fishing rod saying "the hell with that f ranch".

The fact that Uncle was part of the Van der Linde gang, and that John wasnt coerced into hunting him down suggests the possibility that other gang members might have survived until the time of RDR1.

There's no need to hunt him down, they know where he is and he's not going anywhere.

Might as well wait for John to kill the other three and kill them both afterwards, which they did.

Probably because a drunk old man isn't a threat?

They were probably aiming to kill him the same time as Marston anyways.

 

I'd definitely place bets on the native american and blonde male dying at some point though.

I never noticed how his mustache is yellow near his mount, typical sign of a chain smoker!

 

If we can bring him on missions in RDR2, I hope he actually tries to do something and doesn't get shot in less than 5 minutes.

John Marston : You were supposed to look after the place.
Uncle : I did... I did my best. Thing is, there was too many of 'em... I thought you was dead... I wasn't drinking...
John Marston : Hold your excuses until you've figured out which one to use.

I have to assume any conversations between Uncle and Bill are going to be hilarious

I doubt RDR2 Uncle will be a waste, like RDR1 Uncle.  

 

Everybody has a purpose and a role in Dutch's camp.  If Dutch felt even in the slightest that Uncle was useless, he would have cut him out a long time ago.

Hmmm nice bike

Awesome character, even though I hated looking at his disgusting f*cking beard. Looks cleaner in RDR2, which is already a good sign.

I get the impression from this cap and RDR1 that Unc doesn't hold any of these people in very high regard. John was always giving him sh*t, probably the rest also.

 

Here his mind is a million miles away, probably had 'im a wife at some point.

Surely Uncle is based on Freddie Sykes from the Wild Bunch. A dirty, useless old drunk who doesn't seem to serve any purpose for the gang other than the leader is fond of him. (But the old dog later seems to be more resourceful than it would appear)

Edmond O'Brien, one of the best. Watch him in some of his older flix like D.O.A., then watch The WB or The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.  You'd never know it's the same guy.
