Red Dead Redemption II
Format Xbox One | Release 2018 The list would have been very different a few months ago. But RedDeadRedemption
II rode in on Rockstar’s steely narrative horse and knocked us all down, shooting its way straight to the top of the list. Not only is the story one of the most compelling that Rockstar has ever done, and lines up neatly with the events of the previous game without it feeling forced, but everything around it is completely superb. Every single interaction feels unique and real and makes the world, and subsequently the story, come alive. The smallest of details, like how people will react differently depending on how you look, how you smell, or what deeds you’ve done, culminate in something truly special. Even the expert lighting sets the mood wonderfully. For a long time people will be analysing individual elements and emulating the things that are in
and rightly so.
