No game ever has ever been able to pull you into a world like Red Dead Redemption does. Many companies have tried to make Western games, a few have been good but none have been able to make you feel like an outlaw or a cowboy. Rockstar in my opinion is the best gaming company because of their other perfect games such as Grand Theft Auto, L.A. Noire and Max Payne. With such a stellar record, making the greatest Western game ever seemed destined. Everything about this game is amazing. The single player is one of the best stories a game has ever told, telling how an outlaw named John Marston who left his old gang to become a better man and be the father he never could be to his son Jack and wife Abigail, but this is all ruined when Bureau agents kidnap his family and force him to kill the 3 other members of the Dutch gang, his former family. The way this game pulls you into the Wild West is unprecedented, travelling from one side of the map to the other could take quite a long time being that you go from the modern town of Blackwater, to the gang haven of Thieves' Landing to the classic Western town of Armadillo to the civil war torn Mexico with dozens of towns in between. I could go on and on about the perfect Singleplayer but it would be a sin if I didn't boast about the Multiplayer as well. Most games with such an expansive Singleplayer just throw a few Multiplayer modes in to keep the peace. Rockstar being Rockstar does nothing of the sort. They made the lobby the entire map of the single player, free to kill and take down gang hideouts, not to mention the modes such as a Mexican showdown, The Good the Bad and the Ugly style and so many other to name. All in all this is the greatest game I've played to date and I recommend this to anyone who loves Westerns and anyone who loves amazing games in general! I give this game a 10/10.
