Red Dead Redemption

Post by L4MB on Fri May 21, 2010 1:35 pm

Anybody played it yet? It has a fantastic MetaCritic score (95 last I checked) but I want to know if it is buy-worthy, or just rent-worthy; ie: length of game, side quests, etc....

I'd like to know too, but I think I'm going to buy it anyway, looks good and I heard some good things about it.

Hey guys. I made a Red Dead Redemption sub-forum for PS3 and XBOX so I move this thread to the new sub-forum.

IDK, I've always like Old-West movies/games/ anything, so I think I may rent it first. There are several games that I want right now, but for financial reasons I just can't go out spending all of my money on games.

Isn't Red Dead Redemption an RPG? Same thing with GTA 4?

Nah, GTA is a "sandbox" game, I think RDR is also somewhat a "sandbox" game. A sandbox game is where you can run/do stuff free in a world, an RPG is more the typical fantasy quest game with fighting and upgrading, not an expert though Smile

Just cause its sandbox doesn't mean it can't be an RPG. Fallout 3 was both, and so is GTA and RDR.

Anyway, I don't think GTA and RDR are RPGs, and Fallout 3 was an FPS in the first place. 'Officially' I don't think Fallout 3 is seen as an RPG or sandbox. Oblivion for example is in the first place an RPG, secondly a sandbox game, I think it's more obvious there.

Well yeah, I never even played Fallout 3 so I guess I better keep my opinions to myself Rolling Eyes

Yea. Fallout 3 was for sure an RPG. The default setting for the camera wasn't even first person.
