John or Jack Marston to Not Star in the Next Red Dead Game?

There have been a lot of rumors flying about RockStar’s next step in the Red Dead series. Players took a huge liking to this Western game and along with it a great love for the games protagonist, John Marston. This was a game original from most every other game out there. It took players and placed them in a setting they weren’t used to playing. Red Dead: Redemption had a great plotline, long game play and familiarity that players weren’t used to. Of course, with all the good there is to say about the game fans want a squeal. With the way RockStar has taken fan favorite games in the past the odd of getting a direct squeal to Red Dead: Redemption isn’t as good as players might want them to be.

I would love to see John back if they could do it in a believeable way. Didnt care for Jack. so John over unknown but unknown over Jack.

I thought it would of been good if they did a DLC for RDR which tells us an alternative story about the ending

Like an Outlaw Josey Wales type of story

The government come early for John, he's away, since Abbi and Jack won't give him up they kill them both, John comes home to house on fire and sees the two people he spent days trying to save now gone. Now that he's become a broken man he reverts to his old ways and decides the that "once an outlaw, always an outlaw" so he decides to get revenge on the two government agents with the help on people he's met throughout the game. The final missions in the DLC would lead up to the big fight where he would finally kill them both.

At the end he starts to warm up to Bonnie, hinting at some romance before he rides off into the sunset as an outlaw with nothing to loose


They could continue it using that DLC's ending

The way he went in the game was silly in my opinion, I mean Johns a smart man but how did he know the Government weren't going to go after Abbi and Jack anyway. They did try to kill them when they came for John and they were shooting at the house. Just seemed pretty silly to me.

In my opinion he should of just ran, sent a letter to Abbi and Jack explaining he can never come home. Least then the next game could be John trying to clear his name or something

" I mean Johns a smart man but how did he know the Government weren't going to go after Abbi and Jack anyway."

He didn't. But that was the only thing he could do to at least have some sort proof that they wouldn't go after them. If he ran, government agents would've easily captured his family again and held them hostage to lure him back in. That was the theme of the game anyway. Redemption through sacrifice. He proved to everyone that he wasn't some cold hearted bastard that killed people for money but was a family man who just wanted to be left alone with his family after doing the dirty work of the government. But I really do like the idea of a DLC that focuses on revenge. Zombie DLC was really fun but if it was something like you said, it would've been better.

Jack turned out to be a badass John had his time but I doubt itl be Jack

The next RDR, Bully, & Manhunt games on next-gen consoles would be worth hyping about!

I personally want to see the next RDR game set sometime before Redemption in a different location. More with a "Cowboy vs Indian" emphasis. It would be cool if R* implemented multiple playable characters like GTA5. I'd like to play a Native Indian role where bow & arrows are used and the ability to climb trees is possible. All characters can be new and intertwined as the story progresses.

why a sequel when Red Dead Redemption is a Huge game full of different angled slopes and valleys always feeling new online ? ..
in my factual opinion, Rockstar should not work on a new Red Dead Redemptions game, Rockstar should work on the games pop-up, and in adding more weapons like a machete or bow-and arrow etc . and also they should make a new room, a real Hardcore room. not this radar with dots that blow your cover

Awesome_Gamer1951d ago

Agree. John Marston is one of my favourite video game characters, ever. I hated Jack, though.

John is dead and Jack already got revenge for his fathers death

ApolloTheBoss1951d ago

It's been 3 years since Red Dead came out. There is no excuse why anyone who hasn't played it could have at LEAST rented the game by now.

A little Spoilers tag wouldn't hurt, but the spoilers are well deserved if you still didn't play this game by now..

greatcrusader441951d ago

Its been out for a few yrs now and SPOILER tags never work, at least for me cuz I still accidentally pick up a few keywords out of focus when I read SPOILERS.

classic2001952d ago

rockstar always gives us new characters which is cool

Reverent1951d ago

Not here on N4G though! Lol...

linkkjm1952d ago

A prequel would be cool, about John's outlaw days
