Red Dead Redemption 2: 10 Reasons It's Rockstar's Best Open-World Game

They've truly outdone themselves.

Considering how successful Grand Theft Auto V was, making a game that lived up to or even surpassed it was a herculean task. Did Rockstar manage it?

With Red Dead Redemption 2, it's safe to say that Rockstar have completely outdone themselves, creating a game that feels more like an long-span interactive movie than anything they've ever done.

Red Dead Redemption 2 features a gripping story, amazing characters and finely-tuned gameplay, but the real highlight has to be its open world.

Rockstar made their name by being one of the first developers out there to focus on an open-world with Grand Theft Auto 3. Since then, almost every game they've released has had an open-world, and each time they've tried to improve upon what came before.

Their last game is one of the most successful games of all time and features a huge open world with plenty to do. That's some pretty tough competition.

Despite that, Red Dead Redemption 2 delves deeper into so much of what makes an open-world great, that it outdoes the competition in almost every way. It's quality, not quantity.
