Koku Gamer writes: "While Westerns had nearly vanished by the time I was born, let alone watching TV, there have been several great examples recently. Films like Appaloosa, and 3:10 to Yuma (the remake), and HBO's show Deadwood all prove that the Western can still be relevant and powerful to a modern audience – but games are another story. Wikipedia lists less than 100 video games in the western genre, with far fewer most people would actually recognize. Likely the most recognizable are the recent Call of Juarez and its sequel Bound in Blood. I haven't played the original, but Bound in Blood did deliver some of what I was looking for. The game nails the look of the west, but not always the feel. There was too much straight action, and the levels felt exactly like that: they were levels more than they were areas, and they played out fairly linearly."
