Red Dead Redemption
Do I even need to say anything here? I mean, just take a minute to soak in the epicness that is that photo. What you’ll see if John Marston about to knife a bear to death, all up close and personal. If you did all the challenges in this great game then you know that knife fighting bears was just another day in the life for John.
It would have been one thing if the game was just fun, which it was. But it was so much more than that. Every single aspect of Red Dead Redemption, from the soundtrack to the dialogue, was perfect. It did not feel like you were playing a game. It felt like you were in the Old West (do people still call it that?) and you were just doing all you could to get back to your family.
By the way, I can’t be the only person who was really happy to see them die in the Undead Nightmare DLC, right? I mean, your son was a whiny bitch, and your wife was a whiny bitch. Poor John did all that for THEM?
Oh, and I want to end this entry with a wishful prediction. This character and game is so beloved, that I bet when we get a sequel, we actually get a prequel and get to play as John back when he was a bad guy. Come on, would that not be the best thing ever?
