Red Dead Redemption: The Price of Progress

Red Dead Redemption features so much well written and acted dialogue -- especially the incidental atmospheric discussions that really sell the experience -- that it's easy to overlook the depth of its narrative arc. The rest of this post is going to be full of spoilers, so stop here if you haven't beaten it.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wonderful analysis of the meaning of Read Dead Redemption. The game really does portray Western individualism (in all its forms) as a corrupting influence, which is ironic since John Marston simply wants to be 'left alone.' What a paradox.

I second that. This is one of the best pieces on Red Dead Redemption I've read yet.

this game reminds me the shutter island endind:
"rather die as a hero or live as a monster"

Oh man, I forgot about that line...that really was a brilliant end to that flick.
