36 Chambers – The Legendary Journeys: Execution to the max!

Ranking Rockstar, #1: Red Dead Redemption

Filed under: Our Favorites, Video Games — Tony Demchak @ 6:15 am

The game so excellent that it got a fucking Oscar nomination for one of its songs. To me, this is the pinnacle of Rockstar — brilliant gameplay mechanics, a world that while not the biggest, still feels full, and the ability to play poker, cheat, and shoot the other guy when you get caught.

Even the silly DLC — Undead Nightmare — was brilliant and a lot of fun, unlike the millions upon millions of inferior zombie games made throughout history.

The story was haunting, and the setting — the Old West — is still shockingly underexploited for video games. A brilliant game from a brilliant studio, and one I recommend to everyone.

Even if some of the horses are suicidal.
