Killing the American Buffalo in Red Dead Redemption

Now, in the Wild Western setting of Red Dead Redemption, Buffalo, like in real-life, were an endangered species. Their numbers were dwindling, and only a few small herds remained in the Great Plains region of the game. There's an achievement, called Manifest Destiny, for killing the last of the Buffalo, but unlike killing crows and even cows, some people couldn't bring themselves to pull the virtual trigger on the majestic buffalo. I myself was one of them, as was gamer Austin Ivansmith, who wrote a blog post on the subject.

Me? I couldn't shoot enough of them. Sniper right between the eyes, down in one.

My guilty pleasure is beasiality. Don't judge me.

Bobbykotickrulesz4096d ago

Wow. You're one sick son of a bitch.

lol just kidding, I do it too so we're all good bro.

cyberwaffles4096d ago (Edited 4096d ago )

wait, are you seriously sexually attracted to animals or just joking?

we all have guilty pleasures that we know are taboo (or who is to say what is taboo or not), but i'm just curious if you're telling the truth or not.

EDIT: and yes, i have a hard time getting far in red dead redemption. everytime i wake up from jail or the hospital, i just go on an animal killing spree which leads to killing many sheriffs. i feel really bad sometimes whistling a dog to come over just to shotgun his head off, and i kind of hate how the game forces you to be a good guy.

...and I used my buffalo rifle on the first one I saw...BOOM HEADSHOT!! Jumped off my horse skinned it and went back on my merry way to kill a bear with my knife.

goflyakite4096d ago

Killing people is games is fine, but when it comes to killing animals, that's where I draw the line.

It's a majestic beast, but I really don't care for them. They can really fuck you up. Now if we talking about killing a bald eagle, maybe some people would be mad about that.

ReservoirDog3164096d ago

I actually felt bad killing them for the trophy. Kinda wished I hadn't.

cyberwaffles4096d ago

damn, you guys sound like chuck norris. especially you fafoon.

jaredhart4097d ago

Guess I'm a wuss. I didn't like killing them but didn't kill cows or horses either.

Killjoy30004096d ago

I saw it as morally wrong...

xX TriiCKy Xx4096d ago

Cows? I haven't seen one cow. o_O And I killed WAY to many horses because of shooting a rider in his leg.

FragMnTagM4096d ago

Haven't played very much? You see cows in the beginning of the game and on several missions. They are in multiplayer as well.

xX TriiCKy Xx4093d ago

Alright, now I remember seeing them in the beginning. And now I've seen a few on farms and various other places. And I haven't even touched the multiplayer since I got it.

lol funny

AssassinHD4096d ago

When I get the game I will have no problem killing them all. I may be a straight arrow in real life, but my gaming persona has no conscience. None whatsoever.

iceman064096d ago

It allows you to adopt a fantasy persona and act as reckless or as moral as you want with the only reprocussion being what the programmers have in store. If you don't like the result, turn it off and play again. Too bad life doesn't have a reset button sometimes!!!

cyberwaffles4096d ago

but what if its secretly screwing with your subsconcious mind to make you susceptible to mindless killing in the future o.0?

lol jk, i'm the say way.
