Red dead came out in 2010 and is still one of the best games I’ve played in recent memory. The game takes place in the year 1911 in the America and Mexico. The story follows John Marston a cowboy who is the playable character. Who wants to turn his life around.
The story is about John who wants to to bring the old members of his gang to justice to save his family who were taken hostage by the Americam government.
The game has so many strong characters like John. Bonnie MacFarlane,Nigel west Dickens,and my favourite Seth Briars. The characters are like people you’d see in a western movie Nigel selling the elixers and Seth the graverobber.
Bonnie is a character that helps you get back on your feet after you get shot at the start of the game she shows you how to be a farmer like herding cattle and taming wild horses it gives you a real picture of what it’s like to be a farmer in the wild west.
Nigel west Dickens a con artists who goes around selling elixers to people to give them better reactions and improving there aim. While getting John to show off his skills with the gun as proof of the elixers working.
And now Seth the grave robber. The most interesting character. The man is obsessed with a treasure that he desperately needs to find. You can tell that he is gone mad with looking for this treasure.
Right from now on its me talking about the ending of the game so there will be SPOILERS.
The thing I liked most about the game was that it ends 2 or 3 times. The first ending was when you kill all your buddies so you finished the game but then it says go back to your family. So you get on your horse and go back to your family.
You then spend time with your wife and son doing misson like herding cattle going to the shops. Which is why I think that the ending of the game really hits you.
So the ending of the game is where John Marston dies you and your family get attacked by the government. There’s a part of the combat where you can slow down time and its called dead eye mode. During the final mission you and your family take cover in the barn. You tell your family to run to safety. So John opens the door where all the government guys are. So It goes into the dead eye mode and the brilliant thing about it is there isn’t enough time you can kill as many as possible but there isn’t enough time. John will die and it is graphic but then that’s not the ending when the credits end you can play as Jack and you realize that there is more to do
Jacks revenge is a side mission where you track down the man who killed your father and you kill him and that’s the ending.
So that’s red dead redemption and the newest entry to the davidayrescollection
