red dead redemption
PLAYSTATION 3, XBOX 360, 2010
Though its sequel may well eclipse it, no western videogame has enjoyed more commercial and critical success than Red Dead Redemption up to this point. It’s beautiful but dangerous wilderness landscapes fulfil the moniker of ‘Wild West’ like no game before it. It’s got epic train robberies, quick-draw duels, great characters, an amazing soundtrack, a fantastic story and everything else you could ever want from a western game.
