does anyone prefer RDR1 over the second?

Recommended Posts

I see a lot of people (hell, most) saying that RDR2 blew the first game out of the water & that it’s better in every way. out of curiosity, does anyone feel contrary? I personally find that the first game has much better replay value due to it's simplicity, and while RDR2 is a master piece, it feels more cinematic than video game at times. what are your thoughts?

only thing thats better is the environment (lowkey) but the story is better, that twist at the end got me good! the mission were better, had more variety (dickens lol) and more action. i honestly feel like rdr1 had more shooting missions. also, the duels and mini games.

yeah, it definitely felt more shooter driven, in comparison to RDR2 trying to be more well rounded. I actually preferred the far west environment compared to the east, New Austin truly felt like the last part of an era. Aw man, I missed Nigel Dickens. there was a lot more memorable characters (imo). I also didn’t really care for a lot of the gang, they felt like filler. *cough* mary-beth

i honestly think they are about even. there are some things that i loved about red dead redemption 1 that 2 failed on. like adding all that extra realistic crap. having to clean your guns or bond with the horse. the first redemption did not need that crap. but at the same time. rdr2 does have plenty of customization. you can actually buy clothing for your character. both games are great. but they also have their negatives too. nothing is ever going to be perfect.

RDR1 is great (and does have the better soundtrack and Wild West atmosphere) but I prefer RDR2 in terms of story and characters and the open world was much more fun to explore too

I do, way more fun especially after finishing the game.
Didn't like Arthur as much as I did John either.

Story wise, RDR is better for me.

No. RDR is a great game and one of the best of its kind, but RDR2 simply blows it out of the water in every major way and that's quite a feat in itself.

No. Both are great games and the predecessors are usually better but not in this case I'm afraid. RDR2 has to be my all time favorite game, being only beaten by GTA IV and EFLC.

Gameplay wise, I found that I enjoyed RDR1 more. Maybe it's just because I connected with the story more, or it could be because I'm more nostalgic for it. But that's how I felt.

 

On a technical level, RDR2 is fantastic. Graphically it's one of the best games I've ever seen, the AI is very impressive, and it's very fun in it's own right.

 

This is honestly an hard question, but RDR1 was more meaningful and impactful to me, so I have to go with that.

Both games excel in the freeroam soundtracks which complement the scenery, atmosphere and narrative well, but I prefer 1 over 2 in this regard and this is the only thing.

I'd give the upper hand to RDR2 personally. It's essentially everything I love about the original but done even better.

Yeah RDR 1--better in a lot of ways

Love both for different reasons

The humour in RDR2 was total poop compared to RDR1. Rockstar are usually good with that kind of thing, but I guess they don't want to "offend" any pussies now

I like a lot more the physics engine in RDR than RDR2. The RDR2 feels like a GTA game, RDR1 had more fun controls even simple walking and running feels better.

Now almost 9 months since the release of RDR2 and having just started my 2nd playthrough (I rarely do 2nd playthroughs!) I can definitely say that I prefer RDR2 over the first one ... all things considered. While I complained about this not feeling like your typical western because of the different setting early on after its release, the setting really grew on me and I think its so much better than the first one which was limited to mostly desert areas. So RDR2 > RDR1 for me personally.
