Quote of the Day

"I don't think there was ever an intention to have a PC version of Red Dead Redemption," designer Kris Roberts told GameSpot. ""I was actually super shocked that they did a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V. Obviously in development, we were all PC-based and had it running for win32 clients for the entire development. But as far as the licensing for the consoles and stuff, it was pretty much always going to be a Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 title. To the best of my recollection, we never even seriously talked about optimizing it for PC."

Also, at this point, it baffles me that we still have "PC gamers" and "Xbox gamers" and whatever.

I understand making a choice for financial reasons, but many here make them for personal. Great games come out for all systems, I'll never get restricting yourself to one for anything other than cost reasons.
I didn't buy my PS3 just to play RDR, but it was a nice bonus. I didn't get the system until the game had been out for a while, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

On the subject of story and characters, I think Rockstar has always struggled making good characters. They are great at making ridiculous over-the-top stereotypes, but few of them are actually relatable and likable. People also seem to always remember past games in a more positive light compared to the current game. I do think GTA5 broke the pattern somewhat, but I have seen some comments liking GTA4 more. The main thing I remember though, was everybody hating GTA San Andreas compared to Vice City, which I still don't understand. Personally I found CJ's family and friends story focus to be much more enjoyable and relatable than Vice City's Scarface rehash (plus Samuel L Jackson, nuff said). I don't see how gangbanger BS is any less valid or sillier than drug mogul BS. Maybe most gamers secretly want to be drug lords?

Anyway, I think RDR was one of the better story efforts by Rockstar. The backstory was good, and the ending was bittersweet and done really well. The characters also seemed more real, especially with one of the main villains being more of a shade of gray than usual with Rockstar. You usually don't regret killing targets in GTA games, and I had mixed feelings about the person I'm talking about in RDR. The stereotypes were still there, especially in all the ignorant "white folk" (e.g. the hunter going after Bigfoot). I really enjoyed it. It's probably too late for Rockstar to consider a next-gen port, but if they did, a PC version would be almost inevitable.
