RD1 vs RD2,who is better and why??

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I don't think the term "Western" is really about geography. It's more a catch-all genre term for a certain period of time. RDR2 felt more like it was influenced by modern Westerns whereas RDR1 was clearly going after a more "Spaghetti-Western" vibe.

RDR2 is Objectively the better game.

Those who say RDR1 is better are those who are nostalgic of it or are elitists who don't want to accept the truth.*RDR1 is still a great game nonetheless as it was the best western game of its time (hell, I could even go further and say the best open world game of the PS3/Xbox360 era).

 

 

On a side note tho, RDR's soundtrack takes the cake for me. but that's my opinion.

Hahahahah, wait wait. You're talking about realism in a game that has Ability Cards such us Never Without One card that saves you from a headshot or Dead Eye cards that makes you super hard to killl. Hahahahahahahahaha. Jesus!

We are talking SP here, don't bring up the ability cards.

Whilst RDR 2 is technically, the story of RDR 1 drew me in more and had me more invested back when I played it whilst still be technically decent for it's day. So for me I have to go with the original.

RDR1 = Spaghetti Western ("Once Upon A Time In The West").

 

RDR2 = Contemporary Western ("There Will Be Blood"... kind of).

i don't think that's fair.

 

I still prefer RDR2 because as I said way back in this thread it feels more realised, but i don't think it's "objectively" better (This reminds me of similar GTA related arguments). There are still things about RDR1 I like more. I miss the minigames like horseshoes, liar's dice etc. I miss being able to fast travel travel from camp sites, I miss completing clothing scraps through a set of challenges, I miss single player DLC etc.

 

Can we agree they're both excellent pieces of gaming for their respective times? RDR1 and RDR2 are masterpieces both in their own way.

You can now do the same in RDR2. R* added the feature in an update a year ago.

I would say RDR 1 story was so amazing and I just love that part of John Marstons life.

RDR 2 story was great too but I guess nostalgia makes me like RDR 1's better.

RDR 2 is the the superior game obviously though, so immersive.

I just wanted to add in this video which sums up my feeling. RDR's intro was so magical.
