Let’s just be real which each other here for a minute. The current state of gaming is so incredibly fucking stale, with hundreds of uninspired “MetroidVania 2D Side Scrolling Proceduraly Generated Pixel Art Rogue Likes” flooding the Indie Market and the multiplayer realm being completely dominated by Battle Royale games. Yes we have games like FortNite to thank for introducing so many more hordes of people to gaming in general, but how many will ever venture into story driven single player games that truly hit home with likable characters and a beautifully arced plot all delivered in a gorgeous 4K rendered setting? It seems like these games are becoming even more few and far between, but thankfully the industry heavy hitters refuse to let “games as a service” slow their creative momentum. The latest example is undoubtedly the release of the new God of War from Sony Santa Monica, already tilted to be a big contender for game of the year. This all leads us to this very point here today. One of the most flawless developers in the market has yet again left me floored with the first gameplay trailer of RockStar’s Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption is still to this day one of my favorite videogames of all time, and RockStar has already gone so far above and beyond what I have expected for the “presequel”, all I can ask for now is the inclusion of another Undead Nightmare DLC which in my opinion is the greatest piece of downloadable content to ever be released for a videogame. I let myself down in 2017 by overhyping Sea of Thieves as one of my most looked forward to games, sorry @Craigums , and Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently my most hyped game for 2018 still.
Fucking Bravo RockStar
