Rockstar's Perfect Video Game Moment

Kotaku - "I've played thousands of games over the years. And only once has a game ever given me a bonafide outbreak of goosebumps. Head-to-toe. It was during this past console generation, and it was while I was riding a horse." (Culture, PC, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Xbox 360)

That's why good soundtracks are so important. They can pull emotional strings and create moments like these. Awesome!

And i love my mother a lot.

This moment was one of my faves of all time. I just sat on my horse admiring the scenery. Something I couldn't recall ever doing in a game, not the horse, the staring.

I think, even after GTA5 which I really really enjoyed, that RDR is R*'s defining game up to this point. It is beautiful.

Agree completely. Sometimes i would just stop what i was doing and admire the view with the sun setting over the horizon.

I do the same thing on GTA5 too, but its more epic on horseback.

The first storm I encountered in RDR on horseback is one of my defining moments of this generation. Hauntingly beautiful. My dad pciked it up recently. He is a bigger western fan than me (probably something to do with him growing up in the golden age of westerns) and he loves it. It branches across a bridge due to its subject that many games do not. It is quite unique in that respect.

Also having my friends laugh at me whilst I attempted to kill a bear with a knife, and realised that the beavers were in cahoots with the bears.

Or quickly realising bears like to spawn in threes.

Or Armadillo rustling.

So many great memories.
