Games of the Generation: Red Dead Redemption

Eurogamer: Free roaming games weren't invented during this hardware generation, but they certainly came of age thanks to the increased processing power that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 offered. It's an evolution that reached its peak with Grand Theft Auto 5, a staggering technical achievement that conjured a living, breathing city and its surrounding landscape from mere ones and zeroes.

Yet when I look back over the last eight years, it's not Rockstar's urban crime opus that resonates most strongly. It's Red Dead Redemption, the developer's western spin on the genre they popularised. (PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Xbox 360)

Haha, "souless"

First, it's "soulless". Second, staring out over a gorge/valley on horseback while the sun sets over the map is anything but soulless.

My thoughts exactly. Add to that the boring characters and environment, crap story.

Never completed a open world game before RDR, a testament to how great it was.
