5 Reasons Why GTA V Will Never Be As Good As Red Dead Redemption

"Yes, the game’s setting of San Andreas feels like a fully-rendered world and it performs on every level. The characters are well drawn, whilst their motivations are both hilarious and believable. The streets are teeming with life, the cops are just as cunning and ruthless as they need to be to keep up with the game’s three brilliant protagonists, the graphics are beautiful and the gameplay is tight and varied. The radio stations and internet… well, they’re so amazingly produced that you’re often fooled into thinking you’re listening to and using the real thing. But I must say…

No matter how good it is, or how perfect its review scores appear to be, there’s just something about GTA V that – for [Callum Gibson] – feels lacking. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Xbox 360)

I was drawn in to the RDR story way more. San Andreas was the last gta I beat... Niko, and the 3 musketeers didnt keep me engaged.

I liked the first Red Dead the best. Where you can play as different people in certain segments. That was fun…and the style was really cool too.

I don't like any GTA but I very much enjoyed RDR and L.A. Noire

Rdr wasn't about a western. It was one but it drew you in. Rdr was game of the year, I like GTA5 way more than GTA4 but it won't be game of the year. I still play RDR and have it on ps3 and 360

Rdr was amazing. Hopefully a sequel is in the works, and hopefully they bring back Marston since he feels like family now
