NowGamer: We look at why Rockstar's depiction of the old West is he best game world ever, in comparison with other game worlds
I hope dey build on the dynamic events even further for the next GTA GAME
Just like im sick of FPS They need to follow RDR and build from this.
+1 I've always found GTA to be such a shallow experience. There's no choice of how you want to play. You have to be a criminal. I find Red Dead Redemption to be much more interesting.
I'm not necessarily sick of GTA but they do need to re-evaluate some of their concepts. Although RDR has a lot in common with GTA it feels like it has more variety as well.
In defense of GTA, the role of a criminal is a necessity. The series is built around exploring the criminal underworld of various corrupt cities. There would simply be nothing to any GTA game were you allowed to play the "good guy." When it all boils down to the basics, GTA is open-world in terms of environment, but very linear in story progression, and you know what-- if that what it takes to build an emotional connection to the characters (as I certainly felt in GTA IV), then so be it. Red Dead Redemption, in that sense, is an entirely different beast from GTA, and as such, comparisons are fruitless. Exploring the wild west leads to much more possibilities in terms of story and morals than does exploring organized crime. The whole premise of Red Dead Redemption is just more general, allowing you the choice between good and evil. So I disagree that GTA is a shallow experience, the focus on a single aspect in fact allows it to explore deeper than many games, but I totally agree that if being a seedy criminal isn't for you, or you just love to see multiple sides to the same story, then Red Dead Redemption in general is going to be a lot more interesting. But in the end, I don't believe that either can be considered "shallow" simply because you are locked/not locked into a single role. They both were designed for those separate settings and roles, and they both excel at delivering a deep, satisfying experience. Just my 2 cents.
GTA: wild west stories, for xbox 360 a day earlier then ps3. 100mil deal
You're that big of a troll? How old are you man? Talk about an out of place comment.
It does have dynamic events. It's becoming repetitive though in the town of Armadillo.
Didn't see your comment before, but this is exactly what I was talking about in my comment below.
I sadly didn't like this game as much as I thought I would, the dynamic events are few and far between and the ones you do happen to come across in towns happen far to often the same way every single time. Story is awesome though, just they really need to work on expanding the dynamic events hopefully through DLC or a patch if possible.
Sat in England rain splashing on my window, an invisible donkey just ran past, waiting.....tra la la ........waiting...DIDDLE DEE DUM...TRA LA LA......AAAAAGGGHHHHH WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT TILL FRIDAY TO GET THIS 8*^$%$* game when all my north American friends are playing it right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!! *tiny voice*..... it's not fair....
Non-simultaneous releases suck. Period.
This is why everyone has to befriend people who work in gaming stores! I have both stores in a 4 minute radius around me willing to let me have it as soon as its in, on staff discount no less! Sadly, neither will get delivery until tomorrow morning (thursday) but i've had games on the tuesday before. Its worth the effort for times like this!!
So I am really bored now, waiting for the 21st and our European release date, but it is kind of fun typing Rockstar like this, R* R* R* sheesh I need to get a life....R* R* R* R*
I knew it I'm all alone in here not a soul in site.......not even a troll........hell I might just troll myself..........MwooHaHaHAAAA N4G is mine all mine......I will take over the world......Mwoohahahaaaaaaagh. ..hack...HACK....MWoohahaha... ..ugh akkk HACK... (hey guys don't Mwoohaha too often it makes you cough)!
i think grand theft auto 4's open world is better. RDR is a beauty but im a new yorker and seeing new york in gta4's open world is very surreal.
I've only played the demo of Just Cause 2, so I don't know if it had an actual ecosystem like RDR...
I don't think Just Cause 2 had any animals in it that you could shoot at all. Also, Just Cause 2 has an infinite NPC spawning system, RDR doesn't. Once you kill everyone in a town, they stay dead and don't come back.
Till some time back, there was speculation that this game was in trouble and would turn out to be quite average, but this has to be the reverse of GTA4, not much hype but turned out to be surprisingly good, a bit like Arkham asylum or Borderlands.
One thing I am surprised about is the lack of rattle snakes! Oh well, they would be a pain to shoot.
No they are easy, it's the first animal I shot. The deer a pain to hit, they almost never stop moving. I may have to turn the auto-aim on, I'm really hating the shooting controls so far.
Im thinking this will only get better with agency if its a open world type of game, I hope they show something at E3.
Argh! the torture! not out here until Friday :( If I didn't have Alan Wake to keep me busy I would go nuts.
