Who’s Playing Red Dead Redemption?

Red Dead RedemptionNormally, I would just ask this as a straight up “What Are You Playing” question, but I decided to do things a little differently this time. You see, lately, nearly 80 percent of my friends list on XBox Live is playing through the newest Rockstar outing, Red Dead Redemption.

If you listened to our awesome podcast, then you would know that a handful of us here at GamerSushi are deeply enthralled in this game’s clutches. I know that for me, personally, the game is head-and-shoulders above its spiritual brethren, the GTA series. It plays more like an Oblivion or Assassin’s Creed 2 in terms of its structure, and allows you to explore a rich open world with gorgeous western vistas and plenty of fun distractions. I’ve written additional thoughts over on my blog, but I wanted to raise this question here as well.

Who’s playing Red Dead Redemption, and what are your thoughts on the game? It’s looking like it could be a front runner for game of the year, and I’m nowhere near being finished. Where do you rank it? Go!

  1. I wouldn’t be surprised if another Rockstar game got game of the year, or was at least nominated for it. More games should have sandbox elements to them. I know a lot of games that had great worlds that were limited to the areas you were forced to explore.

    Unrelated to gaming: Eddy, Nick, or Anthony, have you ever heard of a band called Stone Road? They’re from Texas, although they’re from Kilgore, if that’s close to you guys.

  2. I’ve been playing it along with Alan Wake and I love it. The story was great and the game has been an absolute blast. I hope they plan to do some episodic content for it like they did for GTA.

  3. Must travel forwards in time to when the exms are over! I keep hearing more and more about how good this game is but I have to wait about 3-4 more weeks! Argh!

  4. I’ve been loving Rot Tot. I haven’t been playing all that much recently because of finals, but once summer comes around, I’ll be on Rot Tot pretty much all the time. lol Fantastic game.

    Contact me if you want to knife some bitches whilst riding on valiant caballos in Free Roam.

  5. I’ve probably logged at least 40 hours on it by now I can’t stop playing it! I’d been waiting for an awesome open world western game and this is it

  6. Yeah, I have yet to do any Free Roam, but I hopefully will have some more time for that as I near the end of SP. I just got to Mexico last night (INCREDIBLE moment), so I doubt I’m that close even.

    @3VisionEyes3 I have not heard of Stone Road. I can’t remember how far away Kilgore is, but I think I went there once on a field trip when I was young.
