Red Dead Redemption was the best game of 2010, if not the decade or of our generation. The game sighted vast, sprawling rural landscapes that offered an abundance of opportunities for gamers to take control of; from hunting animals to killing cannibals, this game had it all. And what helps the enjoyability of a game? The protagonist. John Marston, bandit turned farmer turned bounty hunter for the law. John Marston was one of those protagonists that you become draw to, you care for, he is an honourable man attempting to get his family back and live out the rest of his life in peace. Over the narrative John lays waste to hundreds of people, from bandits and murderers to innocent men, in truth the majority of characters John comes across perish during the story.

So what about those who survived, did they deserve to? In this list I acknowledge four characters whom John shouldn’t have spared, for differing reasons. I also offer up another character that I wish he killed despite the lack of logic.

Anyway, spoilers will follow…
