So after jumping on the proverbial band wagon late, I picked up and finished Red Dead Redemption. My lasting impression was: Has Rockstar lost their mojo?
Rockstar North = GTA Rockstar San Diego = RDR. They are two different developers. Article fail.
Its the same company as a whole. http://www.rockstargames.co... Comment fail
Oh I feel sorry for you and your stupidity lol
@InstantKarma: Are you a kiddie who never worked in a company? Different dev teams have usually different writers, directors and workers in overall, which means will produce different products. (see Sony. One company but Naughty Dog, San Diego or Incognito made different games) On topic: R* San Diego probably wanted to do something on their own not copying other games. Understandable.
This the only rockstar game that actually showed people having sex lol you sir failed and your article did too
Hes upset because you can sleep with hookers??? Give ne a break. All of the gta games seem much more childish to me. It has nothing to do with the hookers, but the characters and the story/theme are much more mature in RDR. Having a guy that goes around sleeping with hookers and stuff just isnt not realistic nor does it make the game more "adult" Most people who can get pussy dont go around sleeping with hookers. Sounds like an upset nerd who thinks sleeping with hookers in videogames makes it more adult. IMO RDR is the best game R* has made. Not because of what you can do, but because it is the first realistic character/story Ive ever seen in their games. There is no over the top ridiculous things to do, and there is a reason why he is fighting. It makes him a much more believable character. I see the previous GTA games immature as parodies of movies which tackled adult stories. Gta vice city = Scarface for kids. GTA san andreas = Dont be a Menace for kids. RDR = Its own story with the first believable character R* has ever come up with.
but the police here in America do that all the time now. so i guess thats not over the top enough for the article guy either. rdr rocks and so does rockstar. now if i could just get a port to my sytem id be in heaven.
No, you hogtie the hooker and park your horse by some rock in the middle of nowhere... then the horse will start rocking and your controller vibrating. Try it. It has to be a place without people nearby.
Menace II Society & Boyz n the Hood. Don't Be a Menace was a comedy starring the Wayans Bros lol
Red Dead Redemption still delivered an incredibly mature experience. I don't know what the author is talking about.
I personally prefer RDR a lot over GTA IV, but thats just my opinion. The article fails in any aspect.
Rockstar lost their mojo after GTA 4, then got it back after Red Dead Redemtion. (At least in my eyes)
Lame article! R* lost their coolness because John is faithful? You can't sleep around in RDR so the game isn't as good as GTA? What's wrong with a man trying to change his life around and do the right thing? Does that make John lame?
"If any adult plays this game and then goes out and ties a woman to a rail road, I’ll kiss Jack Thompson’s shoe." -article You better go kiss some shoe then, cause I'm pretty sure a shit ton of people have that achievement/trophy for doing so. Article=FAIL Also, RDR kicked ass. This sounds like the opinion of someone who hasn't played the game in its entirety.
No, the writer probably means if anyone does it in real life after playing the game, then he'll kiss Thompson's shoe.
If he's dumb enough to believe any sane adult would do that in real life, he may as well go ahead and take Thompson out for the weekend.
they took it out the dastardly trophy/achievement? when?
I've got the same question. Is this really true? I googled it and could not find anything that said it has been patched to deletion.
I do not think that is true at all. More facts out of thin air to support his opinion.
so because you cant have sex with hookers so that means rockstar lost their mojo? this guy just sound like a pervert honestly...
Wow, for once they actually instilled monogamous values in one of their games and that's a bad thing? I hope your wife cheats on you.
Doubt he has a wife. Sounds like a kid to me.
Your more wrong then Wrongy McWrong from the famous clan of McWrong.... so i guess my answer is no they haven’t
Oh, hey I know that guy!
I find it amusing that the author questions if Rockstar "lost their marble when it comes to their ideals about adult gaming". As an adult, I find Red Dead Redemption to be Rockstar's most mature game to date. All the nonsense the author misses is immature content that is titilating to high school boys. I don't see the progression as a result of Rockstar bowing down to soccer moms. It looks like they are just growing up to me.
I love RdR Actually, much more than GTA4 When I think about it, it's one of my favourite game since the beginning of this generation, PC included
Has fronttowardsgamer.com been neutered?
No, they are wacking off to simulated hooker encounters in GTA.
I avoided all the GTA games like the plague. (GTA- "Got To Adulterate") The option of being able to skip overdone "Adult Rated" language and behavior is a plus. Even in RDR, adding to the fact the main character is a believable character was a plus. What am I saying is that there is proof in making a great game. Without adding Adult-Child like behavior for shock value purposes. And I agree with others on this page, Rockstar has started to mature.
What a fail article. This kind of gamer won't be happy until there are options to do all sorts of horrific things in a virtual environment. This kind of attitude is holding the industry back. I would be pleasantly surprised if Rockstar made a game where there were no hookers or killing. That would be an interesting leap forward. Don't we ever get sick of pointing our guns and shooting? It is the same mechanic over and over and over again, with different window dressing. Murder simulators for the loss, if you ask me. Not that games shouldn't have guns, but killing shouldn't be the vehicle which moves the plot forward in a supposed simulation of the west. What about growing crops, raising animals? Working out trading relationships with neighbors? Selling those animal carcasses for food? Something, anything with a spark of originality. As of right now, the majority of games are trying to be Michael Bay movies. I am sure many people will disagree: Michael Bay sells movies tickets, just as Call of Duty sells software sales.
Trading relationships... wife swapping? That sounds more like the old Rockstar. I like this new, more mature direction they are going. I loved GTA4 though. I wish the economy stuff in the RDR story mode had made it into Free Roam. They could still have some stuff unlock as you level up, but there should have been things for sale also. Plus, when you kill a player you could rob his dead body of pelts or cash. The bounty hunting would be more interesting also as players decide whether to break off from XPing to hunt down a Public Enemy when the price on his head gets high enough. Make the kill, collect the evidence from the body, then have to make it to a city to claim the bounty before some other player kills you and takes the bounty evidence from your body. I'm amazed that they didn't do this.
Your mind is in the gutter! I meant trading relationships, as in trading wheat for a cow, or medicine for help building a barn.
is being good a bad thing now?....
Stupid, stupid, stupid article, no doubt coming from a stupid, stupid, stupid person. Goddamn it, mods, stop approving every single POS story you get.
I agree. What are the mods doing these days? This site used to be awesome.
N4G Mods are us. Don't blame some nameless peeps that sit up high and make decisions. N4G allows the community to approve stuff. Now if N4G started taking stuff down, the would be lambasted for censorship. Even though Moderating a community is not Censorship.
I don't think they'd be lambasted for censorship if they only took out the idiotic, flamebait turd-icles that bring the site down so much.
This article is ridiculous. First off had this guy ever heard of the title Bully? There was kissing (even bisexual and gay kissing), but no sex, drugs or rock and roll. Did this author go to the Saloon and get loaded? Yea, getting drunk is in there. For once RockStar made a game where it was fun to be the good guy (thanks to the lasso). They even provided a little bit of encouragement to be a good guy (thanks to the honor system and its perks). Grand Theft Auto is not RDR. RDR is not Grand Theft Auto. Just because Bungie made Halo does that mean every other game they make has to star a nameless guy in a plastic suit? No RockStar should be at Liberty to make a game that doesn't feature so much Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll as the dimwitted author puts it. Basically this guy is saying if developers do not use a cookie cutter formula then they suck. Which to me is the opposite of a good developer.
