Set during the time when the old cowboys and outlaws were starting to fade, and the modern world was intersecting with the American West, Red Dead Redemption is Grand Theft Auto meets Billy The Kid, bringing all the sandbox-style exploration of Rockstar's flagship franchise to your nearest rough and tumble saloon. Red Dead is easily the finest Western game to ever be conceived, and hits all the right spots for fans of the genre, offering you a whole world to discover filled with stick ups, gun duels, and bounties to be hunted down. And bears too! Who hasn't wanted to take on a bear when you're armed with nothing but a buck knife? Definitely not this guy.
