When thinking of the most highly anticipated triple A title of the decade, one game comes to mind twice–Red Dead Redemption 2. 

A few months shy from the 9 year anniversary of the last console generation title in the series, Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar games made sure to not forget the elements that made that title the most well accepted western game of all time.

Keeping locations, side story’s, and an incredibly deep and immersive main story behind the series new anti-hero, Arthur Morgan, Rockstar has done it again by making a game that critiques can not find anything wrong with.

The game provides all of the necessary ingredients to make a masterful RPG and does so in a way that any gamer can pick up and play the game in their own way. New elements exist however for both single player and multiplayer stories.

This is of course to be expected after the golden goose that was GTA V and GTA Online. Take-Two interactive, Rockstars parent company was surely not going to allow for any new title to not utilize the formula that made GTA V number 4 on Forbes top 5 most sold video games list, even beating out Super Mario.

With the online element only launching earlier this week on Tuesday the 27th of November, it will be interesting to see how well the online game compares to that of its last generation predecessor, and how much of the good, the bad, and the ugly of GTA Online will creep into the wild wild west.

Whaddya gotta say to that?
