Rockstar games may be messing up right now with their Grand Theft Auto Trilogy, but make no mistake, they are the creators of masterpieces. Giving us a variety of memorable gaming stories and moments, they really know how to keep us on the edge of our seats. Grand Theft Auto IV had us in tears with its split ending, as did the first Red Dead Redemption. However, neither one in my opinion can compete with the narrative they presented us with RDR2 (Red Dead Redemption 2).
Turn the clock back to 2010 for a moment. Many players were convinced that John Marston is, and always will be, the definitive Red Dead Redemption protagonist. His story was undeniably fantastic, but following the introduction of Arthur Morgan, I just don’t think they’re comparable anymore.
An unquestionable masterpiece, Rockstars western took us all on a journey that had thrills, twists and enough emotion to have grown men weeping come the end of its story. It’s vast collection of interesting characters were used as a channel to focus on important themes such as sacrifice, perseverance and betrayal. Now it seems that one avid fan is to translate the gut-wrenching story into novel form, so their father can experience the same emotions we all went through.
RDR2 Player Does Generous Gesture For Father
What an unbelievable Christmas gift this would be. One Reddit user posted that because Red Dead Redemption 2’s controls were a bit complicated for their father, they’ve instead decided to novelise the story of Arthur Morgan. However, he noted that it will be told through the perspective of the original games protagonist John Marston. Apparently, it will cover a variety of the story events shown in the games opening, to the point where Dutch, Micah and Arthur find Sadie Adler’s home overtaken by O’Driscolls.
We know that doesn’t sound like too long of a book, but hey, it’s a start at least! On the other hand, it is quite peculiar a game of this magnitude and story-telling depth hasn’t yet received an official novelisation anyway. Previously, there have been plenty of games which received comic book adaptationsso why not this one? Get on it Rockstar.
Despite this, it really is just fantastic to see the impact this story has had upon the gaming community. Three years on from release, fans still can’t get enough, and clearly want to share their experiences with their loved ones. If you still have witnessed the greatness of this game, make sure to pick up your copy right here. I can assure you, you won’t regret it.
