    Hey Rockstar, love your game Red Dead Redemption. I think I would love it 10x more if you added customization to RDR Multiplayer. Whenever I play, I always want to pick a guy that feels like a 'real' cowboy. I want i guy like Clint Eastwood or Russel Crow. I think they're awesome. See, you make characters that resemble characters (at least i think so) Like Red Harlow resembles Clint Eastwood, but i want a character that IS that character. That's why i think you should add 1 or both things.
    1. A GOOD player creator. Something that makes your character feel like you. Be able to customize hat style, color. Jacket, Shirt, Ties, suits, pants, leather chaps. Things like that. I want to be me as a cowboy. Also a face creator. Make able to create hair, eyes, eyebrows, face shape, facial hair. Everything.
    2. Create a Hollywood Hero category for characters. Have The famous Man With No Name(keep him unnamed when 'naming' him), Ben Wade(3:10 To Yuma), Colonel Mortimer(For a Few Dollars More), Tuco( The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly), Doc Holliday(Tombstone), Wyatt Earp(Tombstone), Johnny Ringo(Tombstone), Ethan Edwards(The Searchers), Also, The Kid in the quick and the dead. I'm a huge fan of western movies and of this game, and it has never let me down or gotten me bored. I played through the campaign about 4 times, and play it whenever i feel... I would hate to see the game get boring as it would stay the same without any new DLC. I appreciate the Myths and Mavericks Pack, but i think it was kind of cheap. I was hoping for a surprise of what fans are asking for, Undead Free Roam and MP Trains, which would be awesome. As you can see,I put a lot of thought into my suggestion, and i would hate to see it go unanswered. Another thing, games get old after lots of play of the same thing, so add some new areas to the map, or a gang hideout in The cave where Louisa is kept. that would be awesome. Also, NEW GUNS. Get the 1851 Navy, The Single Action Army, The Peacemaker. I want Revolvers to be the main game here, not the high power pistol where bullets are spammed from horseback. I think it would be cool for all the characters i mentioned above to have their own gun. Could be a special character pack where it includes the characters and their guns. The new guns could be a free dlc. That about covers it up. And Btw, when making a new game, make it Johns Outlaw Days, Not Jacks future. I hated playing as him and i think that game would suck.(Not that it wouldn't be fun, it just wouldn't be cowboy) Thanks a million guys. Your awesome.
    P.S. When making the next game comes around, please consider my list if it can't be put into Red Dead Redemption. I understand that im asking for a lot, but thats just to make my playing experience better.

      R* awesome job on making this game it is my all time favorite! A few suggestions...

      You could make a sequel to red dead redemption. Starting out as jack and going through his life or something

      You could also make a mp free roam based on single player but even if you dont I won't be mad because I still love it!

        R* should make a dlc with a bow and arrow hunting would be fun and silent and i agree with that one guy about the make your own charector for online

          That way if you lose a horse you can hitch another one up or you can use faster horses to make the carrige faster

            They should make it so you can hitch your own horse to the carrige

              Best game I ever played Rockstar and I been playing games for years!!! One small request, could we have more co-op missions ? I would gladly pay for another 6 co-ops they are my favourite thanks :)

              • 12808841on January 8 2011, 6:29pmReplyFlag
                Maybe a trade option with other players
                • hanbury22on January 8 2011, 1:44pmReplyFlag
                  Just a little suggestion to make the online better. Hunting is the best part of the game, but online hunting just isen't the same so can you allow us to skin animals and sell them at general stores for xp or money which will allow us to buy ammo.

                  P.S Can you let us change our email address, because i no longer have that email address and can no longer access it.

                    Make a 6th legendary rank and have his mount become the car you seen in Blackwater.

                        It could be cool if you made DLC with freeroam where Posse leaders could gather a wanted poster. Then everybody in the POSSE should help. Then there could be more to capture alive than 1. Then everybody in the posse should take 1 leader and take him to the back of their horse and if there werent enough Posse member they have to hogtive the other leaders and take 1 each and deliver them and return back for the rest of them. I know that you need a lasso and you cant get it in multiplayer but if Rockstargames did do that when you shoot them in the leg then you can aproach them and press hogtive. The posse could also just kill them all or just some off them such that they dident have to ride forward and back more than 1 time. I love Red Dead Redemption and i only got the undead ---htmare pack, the outlaws to the end co-op mision pack and the trading and hunting clothes pack but im planing to buy the last 2 packs.

                          Also RDR is probably the best game I've ever played. And the voice actor for John Marston has an amazing voice, he should narrate some books. And as for the idea of a se/prequel Red Dead Revolution/Resolution/Revenge etc. Would be nice to play as John throughout his tough years growing up in Dutch's gang, could also add in some native Americans. And I'd like to see more British people as well :D

                            Hey just wanted to say Red Dead Redemption is amazing hoping for a se/prequel. Undead ---htmare Pack is extraordinary, best zombie game mode ever. I just wish the DLC didn't have to end :)

                              I love R*. You make the best games. I'm telling you even if you knew!

                                  how's about an pro hardcore free roam where there is no HUD whatsoever then finally we would be able to have the REAL western experience this would be an AMAZING attribute to the game...
                                  Please make it happen

                                    I would love to see more coop missions have you any plans for that ? I for one would pay 800 points for more coop missions as I play them regular, just gets a tad tedious doing the same ones over and over, apart from that best game I EVER played. :)

                                      I agree with Davisphere and I like the idea of creating the free roam character and the mount, cant wait to get that undead pack for the xbox and I cant wait for any new packs after that!!!
                                      • Davisphereon September 24 2010, 9:28pmReplyFlag
                                        How about a new mount? I'm thinking a huge boar with tusks and big mane would be pretty badass. And (excuse the grammar) where the hell is Landon Rickets?! How did he not make it into the selection of story characters playable in multiplayer? That old --- kicks ass.

                                        I also have an altogether less reasonable suggestion; creating your own free roam character.

                                        You choose:

                                        the head/face
                                        skin colour
                                        stache (gotta have that stache, non negotiable)
                                        hair and facial hair colour
                                        old west get-up (I want a beat up old duster and a shiny new top hat!) with a selection of old west colours for such clothing (no lime green or anything of its sort, an outlaw could lose his cred that way!)
                                        voice (basically the existing selection of mp character taunts - no need to expand on that, I usually let my gun do the talking).

                                        Anyway, keep up the good work. I'd like everyone at Rockstar to know that Red Dead Redemption is my #1 favourite game on the ps3 and is by far the best sandbox game I have EVER played. I usually tire of those pretty quick (mercenaries, crackdown, gta4), so the fact that I'm still playing the hell out of this game says something.
