And it deserves every one of em.

I can't believe this game was actually close to being canceled.

Amazed they sold that many considering how buggy that POS was. PS3 version.

Sitting at the poker table when all the characters faces disappear. They're just sitting there talking with no faces! And yet it still got high marks.


Good game but that shit was rushed out the door.

The fuck did I just write? lol

Anyways. RDR was still a buggy POS but the story and acting were superb.

LumpsRGood2995d ago

Agreed! One of the very few games I have yet to trade in after finishing.

and only 10% of those proceeds are for R*

Take-Two must be ROTFL.

The Poker glitch doesn't happen all the time. Every game has glitches, nothing in Red Dead was devastating nor did they hinder the game, I laughed at them. It doesn't take away, for me, how great the game is. It's the best Western game of all time.

I had very mixed feelings. Red Dead Dull was the biggest dissapointment this generation. Most of the game was just dull, and boring. The game doesn't even deserve to sell 250k.

On the other hand I am always glad to see a game in a non WWII historical setting sell a ton of copies. As that means we will get more games in historicals settings.

So my feellings are mixed on this, but overall I am happy because it means more games in historical settings in the future.

I actually just finished it this week. This is the first game in a long time that I really took my time to finish. Wow is all I can say. I'm a grown man, and I'm heavily impacted by this one. Hope they sell even more.

You know what they did blasphemers back in the old west, right? :)

That's like saying Halo Reach is Killzone 2 with bad graphics. There is a lot more of a difference than your ignorance wants you to know.

Nice to see a game outside the FPS genre get such high sales. Now if more gamers bought other types of games then we'd have more variety the rest of this gen and into the next.

TheLastGuardian2995d ago

My second favorite game of this gen right after Uncharted 2. What a fantastic game. It never gets boring even after you finish the game. The whole world Rockstar has created this time is just phenomenal. I don't think I've been so attached to a game world since San Andreas. It's the first R* game I've gotten 100% on. The multiplayer is glitchy but in a funny way and the maps aren't really cut out for multiplayer but that doesn't stop it from being fun and addictive.

spunnups2995d ago

I agree whole heartedly. I expect the sequel, if there is one, to be amazing. The Multiplayer was the only part for me that could have been better.

dead_eye2995d ago

spot on. i thought the free roam part of the multiplayer was awesome just not the deathmatch part. started playing it again this last week to get 100% and just to ride around in the world.
