Red Dead Redemption 2: 10 Reasons It's The Best Game Ever Made

10. The World

Rockstar Games

Every bunny rabbit to each individual town. Every random encounter to the meticulous missions. The mud on the carriage wheels to the buildings that get constructed as you play. The world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is unlike any other.

The map is gigantic but realistically laid-out; it never feels like you just magically wound-up in the desert or the snowy mountains, each area feels like it transitioned perfectly from the last.

Each town feels memorable, what with their own unique soundtracks and atmosphere, and the group camp always feels like home. It's a world that trumps any other in terms of scope, liveliness and immersion.

Sometimes when you play a game you wonder why it took so long to make. The opposite is true of Red Dead Redemption 2; it's a living, breathing world that feels like it should be impossible on current hardware.

It makes all other open worlds feel completely devoid of life and like a stage play. From the realistic animal hierarchy to the decaying corpses, the ability to speak to any NPC to dynamic weather, down to the shocking lack of glitches - the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is the greatest ever crafted.
