Cian Maher writes: Red Dead Redemption 2 came out two years before the next-gen consoles, but it's still the most "next-gen" game on the market.

Damn skippy i still need to finish this baby.

potatoseal182d ago

If you haven't finished it already, well I have to question whether you ever will man. Loved the game. One of the biggest pains in the A to Platinum though.


On my second play through. RDR 2 is that good

GamerRN182d ago

Give me 60fps in next gen and holy crap I'll be motivated to finish

Ninver182d ago

Haven't even bought it yet. You're far better off mate. Guess I'll have the luxury of experiencing it in next gen glory.

mikeslemonade181d ago

Next gen is PS6. Use your words correctly.

Then you need to play the last of us 2. Visually, and overall, that was our first glimpse into next gen.

They're both way ahead of the competition technologically.

I definitely understand why someone would say this about RDR2 in particular. It's an open world game that genuinely feels alive with lots of complex systems, and that somehow still looks years ahead of its competition.

Imalwaysright182d ago (Edited 182d ago )

I disagree. When it comes to tech no other game even comes close to Flight Simulator 2020.

Psychotica182d ago

@Imalwaysright - FS2020 isn't a game any more than Google Earth is..

Imalwaysright182d ago (Edited 182d ago )


You can pick and choose what a game is all you want but it won't change the fact that tech wise Flight Simulator is by far more ambitious than RDR2 or TloU2.

ScootaKuH182d ago


On this occasion you're very wrong, so you need to change your name

Imalwaysright182d ago (Edited 182d ago )


I will if you can give me any reason as to why I should so let me know what any other game is doing that it as technologically impressive and as ambitious as what you see in this video . If you can't then don't even bother replying to me.

Ghost of Tsushima is the best looking last gen open world game afaic, just ahead of RDR2. That said in a multiplatform way of view, RDR2 is the better technical achievement of the past generation.

Yet RDR2 looks much better than it and is also open world. The only thing better in TLOU 2 are the character models and animation.

potatoseal182d ago (Edited 182d ago )

Dude TLOU2 looks unbelievably better, but that's to be expected because it's not an open world game. IN FACT, these games should not be compared.

RED DEAD 2 is a masterpiece in every sense of the word, and so is TLOU2

Vx_182d ago

trenchantly it's impossible for an open world, RDR2, to look or feel better than and more liner one like TLOU2. but both are fantastic in their own ways.

S2Killinit182d ago

That’s just objectively wrong. Makes me think you haven't played either.

goldwyncq182d ago

"TLOU2 looks unbelievably better"


Not even hating, but RDR2's environment and lighting just look far better than anything in TLOU 2. Like I said, TLOU excels in character models and animation, but everything else RDR2 looks undoubtedly better and more refined.

DOMination-181d ago

I was going to make my usual troll comment about how neither looks good compared to an xbox exclusive but I couldn't actually think of any

It is really one of the most stunning games I've ever played but still runs at 30fps. if we're looking at just OG consoles then it's easily top 3, I would say RDR2 is more impressive simply because it's totally open world. On the Pro/Series X though technically Gears 5 is more impressive to me because it manages to run at 60 fps and looks gorgeous! I know this will get me crucified of course because I mentioned an Xbox game but I have and love all the above games and am speaking objectively.

Zeref182d ago

Gears 5 has better visuals than either of those

spicelicka182d ago

And it's 60 fps on the One X. Hiverbusters looks even better, practically next gen. It's sad how little love Gears gets.

AngelicIceDiamond182d ago

TLOUS 2, Ghosts, RED 2, Gears 5 and Forza Horizon games are easily some of the best looking of this gen imo.

S2Killinit182d ago (Edited 182d ago )

This is true.

Visually yes. But in other areas... I certainly hope not or I'll have to stop gaming.

This is one of my faves I still have to play the first RDR game but RDR2 is f*cking great still remember getting drunk once and ran the horse head first into a couple of trees.

Yi-Long182d ago

If you've already played RDR2 I wouldn't go back to RDR, which now looks and plays ancient in comparison.

Was hoping Rockstar would one day release a RDR Remaster inside RDR2's world as SP DLC, but sadly that never materialized

potatoseal182d ago

I'm totally holding out hope for a full remake of the first game. But it will probably never happen so a real Remaster would be cool

PertySlick182d ago

I tried going back to RDR after completing RDR2. It was borderline unplayable now as the control scheme was pretty rough comparatively. And the damn map limitations and inability to swim... lol

P_Bomb182d ago

Been running a Rockstar Online marathon this month. Got to lvl 100+ in GTA & 70+ in RDR. Lots of in-game sales in RDR lately including all Moonshine upgrades and Trader Wagons. The stuff that makes you money.
