Red Dead Redemption 2 is a massive game, with one of the most realistic and in-depth open worlds ever created. Though the focus on reality and setting can sometimes be to the detriment of the pick-up-and-play atmosphere of Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto, it all pays off in the end.
Not only does the game serve up one of the most touching and heartfelt narratives in video game history, it offers so much content around the map that even after 100 hours, you’ll barely have scratched the surface.
Yes, there’s the collectibles and the animals and the mini games, but if you want to truly dive into what Red Dead Redemption has to offer, you need to go off the beaten track. Some of these entries come during side quests, but for most, you’ll have to track them down all on your own.
Red Dead keeps a lot of secrets hidden for those who truly explore the game, and some them are guaranteed to give you chills. From the bizarre to the creepy to the downright terrifying, there’s a lot more to uncover in Red Dead Redemption than just Arthur’s story.
