Pixel Enemy's Take on "The Real History: Red Dead Redemption" (Found on YouTube)

Posted on September 17 2012, 10:19am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

We recently came across this very sweet, brief historical analysis on the Old Western geographical inspirations behind the world of Red Dead Redemption, created by a genuine Texan, MrTexan505 on YouTube as part of Pixel Enemy's "The Real History" series on YouTube.

The video offers an outsider's study on the three distinct areas of the game, plus weaponry and emerging technology of the era.

          @CrazyHomelessGuy We're just sharing something we like that has to do with our game, and if you look at the comments on YouTube we think you'll realize that a lot of other people enjoyed it too!

        Red Dead Redemption ...... lots of funny, emotional and also sad moments (at one point i almost started crying, that emotional it was). Without any doubt Rockstar, RDR is one of your best games of this gen, at least until GTAV is out :) but I will never forget the story of this game, never! Excellent writing work guys! I wish that Rockstar San Diego is working hard on the next chapter of this epic franchise.

            @ Yes, this lake I was talking about =D
            Nice name. This lake is Lucky to have such a name that was used by Rockstar Games ^^

          Rockstar, check this music theme I wrote for RDR back in 2010: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BJ9_vC52K8

          I make music and I hope one day to write a soundtrack or just a song/theme for one of your games in the future.

          looking forward to seeing in which direction u take the next Red Dead game, will u go forward and continue the story of Jack Marston or a prequel going back into the old west and tell the story of John Marstons younger years, or a totally new story with a new protag, anyway to soon to be talking about that right now lol.

            @The-Dark-Night I think it will come out in 2014-15. It will probably be entirely unrelated to RDR. But I do hope that it set much before 1911, like the period at the end of the civil war, and just after the civil war ended, and in which you can explore entire battlefields, and take part in a few real battles, like in RDR in mexico.

            @The-Dark-Night waiting too so it was good to explain a new RDR's past time for john marston and his gang assaults he committed :)
          • Buzzcat31Xon September 18 2012, 2:33pmReplyFlag
            @SlimySunOfABeach I agree with you on the time setting of just after the civil war . Hopefully a new protagonist (There isn't much story in John Marston 's past that would make a good game in my opinion).
            I was thinking "Red Dead Reloaded". "Reloaded" can also be relevant to the story if it is about an ex-civil war soldier who picks his guns back up to go to work as a bounty hunter. That would be historically accurate aswell.

          One of the best games I have ever played and been highly immersed in. I have always been a massive fan of the western genre, be it by the small ammount of games that are made in the genre, or the classic western movies starring Clint Eastwood and the like. But I definitely felt prior to experiencing this game, their was a whole that only probably Rockstar could fill, and oh boy did they fill it. Great to see videos like this that highlight the dedication and ambition that Rockstar have to making a true to life world.


          Great video about a fantastic game.

          I don't know much about Red Dead Redemption but this guy's video is very interesting actually, explains alot ! I'll be looking forward to checking the other videos he's talking about to explain more about weapons and clothing. Very nice.

          Who cried when heard this at the ending? Redemption's ending is the best and sad ending ever. And this game is the best open-world game on the earth (at least until GTAV).
