In 2004, Rockstar Games did attempt a stab at this relatively barren genre for games, when releasing Red Dead Revolver for the Xbox and Playstation 2. This was a third-person shooter set in the late 1800’s of western America. The game received mixed judgments and was a mild success. Six years later, Rockstar Games releases another game upon the world which takes place in the American West.
