Anyone get this joke?

Recommended Posts

In chapter 3. 

 

If you play poker with John, Arthur'll crack a joke that the loser has to swim naked in the river. Afterwards, he says that he forgot that John can't swim. 

 

Rockstar self-deprecation?

In the first Red Dead you died if you went into the water. Hence John can't swim. They even joke about it later in the game as well and I think it's a wink to the previous game

Nope. His stamina instantly drop to zero no matter how full it was.

you can always use boats tho. I dont think there is much to explore in the water anyway. I spent some time rowing a little boat only to open up the map and didnt find much... Damn OCD. I also spent a long time trapped in a bigger boat I jumped onto thinking I could drive it, so dont ever try that with John lol.

Arthur also joked about whether John was nervous being so close to the water when the gang was in Clemens Point

Did Rockstar intentionally have it so John couldn't swim so they can make corny jokes?

Actually had a buck float down the river, and John can’t swim all that great, here either.

No. It's just their way of making making things add up as to why John would die if he went into water in red dead redemption.

 

Just keeping things consistent.

IV had swimming in it, why doesn't RDR?

 

I used to think John wasn't taught how to swim and that's why, but given that they're now making jokes out of it, that implies that there were limitations with RDR.

Nah 

They used water as a barrier in an effort to make players take certain routes and as part of the game border...

Wouldn't look to deeply into it or put to much stock in it.

 

But that's why the joke was told...

 

Because other games at the time allowed you to swim when that one didn't even though it was built on a similar engine.

Just R* owning up to it.

 

Kind of how naughty dog had a controller malfunction at E3 and the character just stood there for 30 seconds with out moving.

So they owned up to it and made a trophy called stage fright.

Basically in a certain chapter of the game when you exited a building and did not touch t he controls...

You got a trophy for it

 

It's more of an inside joke to the fans that complained about it.

Arthur makes a similar joke in the last mission of Chapter 2. 

 

That's what I expected regarding John's inability to swim and they delivered. 😄

So, ... if someone had pushed John Marston out of a canoe in RDR2, there never would have been an RDR1?  😛

John is terrified of water, that’s why in chapter 1 we rescue him from WAYYYY up in the mountains above the clouds. He was trying to get as far away from sea level as possible LMAO

 

LOL even the horses were terrified of water in the first game. They all instantly fainted in 2ft of water.
