Playing red dead redemption 1 after rdr2?

Hey.

 

I just finished rdr2 story, and i would love to play more story, i never got to play rdr1 at that time, didnt had the interest for that timeline at that point, but now i want more after complete the amazing rdr2. 

 

This would be like continue on the rdr2 story where it ended, but in a 8 years old game, How often do you play with the remaining characters from rdr2?

 

Could rdr1 be just as fun and excited like rdr2 or do it feels too old? It’s just 3 yesrs older then gta 5 that most of us still play from time to another :p

 

I dont have a ps3 or rdr1, but i now consider to borrow a ps3 and buy the rdr1, ps store sell it for around 30 dollar 🙂 

 

They say rdr2 take 60 hour to finish, any idea how long time it take to finish rdr1?

Red Dead Redemption isn't anywhere near as long. It has about 55 missions so don't expect it to be as long as Red Dead Redemption 2. In saying that definitely give it a go. It's one of the greatest games ever made IMO.

Man I actually want to know the feelings of someone who plays RDR after RDR2 for the first time.  It's definitely gonna be a unique experience and very different for people who play it after knowing all the stuff from RDR2 in comparison to people who played it before RDR2. Wish I could erase that bit of my memory but unfortunately it's not possible.

I think it would be a cool, but somewhat bizarre feeling to be standing in Blackwater peering over Flat Iron Lake to think 12 years prior all of the events of Red Dead Redemption 2 occured even though in this game it's un-accessible land mass.

Its still good by today's standards. If anything just speed run through the story. Its still really good w/o the side missions and activities, etc.

I've just done that. Yikes the downgrade takes a while to get used to but it is a good game. Can see why it was such a big deal and how many elements carried over into GTAV. But it doesn't have those in camp moments of RDR2 so RDR2 wins for that reason alone.

 

Credit for Rockstar to go from RDR1 to RDR2 in one generation. The comparison is mind blowing. Other studios take note and spend a little longer on your games and you might get a little bit closer to that!

If you're going to play RDR1 now try and go for the Xbox One X version where it renders the game in 4k and eliminates all frame rate problems (and is also using the 360 assets which were better than the PS3 version). Going back to the PS3 version of RDR1 after playing RDR2 is just going to do it even more a disservice.

Definitely worth it but the story isn't nearly as good (graphics and gameplay being worse is obvious). I would say that RDR1 had more of a classic western feeling though.

Yes, RDR1 no doubt had a more classic western feel to it ... and that's what makes me enjoy it just that little more compared to RDR2. It goes without saying that the 2nd one is better on every aspect BESIDES that classic western feel though. Now I can't wait for Red Dead Online and I'm sure there'll be lots of challenges, missions and stuff to do in New Austin then compared to what is there to do in the story mode.

It's probably because of New Austin, Mexico and the soundtrack, all three gave it a more classic western movie feel (and the last act was actually loosing it but that was  the point).

 

It's a shame that the original map is so empty in RDR2 and not really a big part of the story (wish we could explore it with Arthur and it was at least the setting for one big chapter), they remade it quite well and it still has the western vibe.

Redemption largely drew inspiration from Spaghetti Western movies and it was more present in the soundtrack that plays around New Austin and Nuevo Paraiso, in addition to the mostly Desert setting. I understand why someone would prefer that type of Western atmosphere over Redemption 2's. Me? I like both, but the variety in Redemption 2 is more welcomed. Louisiana (i.e. Lemoyne in Red Dead) is part of the history of the Old West and yet I don't know of any Western movie that takes place there. It's a reason why Redemption 2 is telling a better and more grounded story inspired by real history compared to most Western fiction on TV.

I'm the one who's about to do that. My PS3 died at around the time I got RDR1 back in 2014. 

I can't wait to see what's beyond New Austion and what happens after the events of RDR2. I briefly played RDR1 couple days back and I was like "holy sh*t" when I heard Bill and John talk about Dutch in the first mission.

 

I generally believe that Rockstar did such an AMAZING job with RDR2 as a prequel, covering a bit of everything to the point where playing RDR1 can feel like it's a sequel, and not feel f*cking weird and forced like when watching Star Wars.

Watching Star Wars in order gave me a "WTF is this sh*t" feeling, watching it by release at least felt natural. That's how I feel RDR1 is gonna be, it's gonna feel like as if it was an actual sequel. We'll see.

I know this is a few months late, but I really hope you got around to playing RDR1. It's still an amazing game and a wonderful experience. It is from 2010, but I think it aged quite well since then. As someone else said before, it's a LOT shorter than RDR2, but the story is still interesting and it basically picks up right where 2 leaves things off. Plus, New Austin is where a majority of the game is set and I think the desert is beautiful. You also get Mexico right across the river! Both are arid desert regions, but they still manage to feel different from each other without being too different geographically (unlike every region in RDR2).

 

It's been a while since I last played RDR1, but I'm definitely going to begin playing it again now that I've finally finished RDR2. And just for good measure, I'm probably also going to get Red Dead Revolver. It's from 2004 and its story doesn't connect to Redemption in any way, but the protagonist of Revolver (Red Harlow) is mentioned in RDR2, so it's pretty much confirmed to be part of the same universe and just set about 10 years before RDR2.
