Since midnight on May 18th I have been held captive by Red Dead Redemption. It’s beautiful, engrossing, and just plain fun. Here are my top five reasons why you should be playing it this instance.
This game is absolutely humongous. Rockstar games has made some big games before, most recently in Grand Theft Auto 4 where they managed to recreate New York Liberty City in grand fashion. This world is just as vibrant as any Rockstar has created in the past. It is positively teeming with life, from animals darting across your path, to bandits trying to set you up by pretending to be in need of assistance. There is even buried treasure to be found!
