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
