I don't like GTA games, should I buy Red Dead Redemption 2?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - I don't like GTA games, should I buy Red Dead Redemption 2?

I hate GTA4 with a passion but still loved Red Dead Redemption. They share similarities but are still mostly different experiences. I assume this will also apply to RDR2

Just get the first game and give it a play through. You can pick it up cheap these days. It might even be on Gamepass at the moment.



Why don't you just play RDR1 and see for yourself?

About your question: It's an open world game. That's about it with similarities.

I only have a PS4 and didn't find any RDR remake in shops and in the PS Store. What is a Gamepass? Can I use it in Europe/The Netherlands?



Play the first one to see how it goes, then if it's alright with you, then go for the 2nd one.

Although, I strongly suggest you to not touch the multiplayer online mode if it's going to be anything like what GTA online is.

Interesting to see that people enjoy RDR while not liking GTA games either. Apparently it has some significant differences. I will probably buy RDR2 at some point!



Yes,two different games but they have Rockstar's touch

"The game looks good but seems to share some gameplay mechanics from previous Rockstar games."

They are bringing back things that people loved it and improve it to match the quality of the game and its world and they are good at it



I say u should check them out. I don't like GTA 4 or 5 but loved RDR 1 and looking forward to RDR 2



Not sure what RDR2 will be put I despised GTA4 after slogging through it and RDR was a godsend, It's more focused on story and atmosphere than GTA... the tone is completely different. It felt at the time like they made a game totally different than a GTA style game but slapped the GTA map and other mechanics to polish it far into development and it just came together like a cigarette and coffee. Can't say if it'll be the case for RDR2 and if differing will be a bad thing but I'd reckon you should at least find someone you know with the game and try it (it shouldn't be too hard, hehe, trying to avoid it will be more tougher :D) and play a chunk. Hell, I'd say the gamble would be worth it as RDR1 is one of the greatest games of all time.

This is sort of how I feel to some extent, GTA IV was... well, I don't think it was bad per se, but it wasn't good either, they went for realism but went too far to the point where the game was just annoying as fuck for 90% of it, but I loved the physics, and online was really fun for me, whereas in comparison, I really didn't like Red Dead Redemption online, but the singleplayer (The thing I care about, lol) was superior in every way, even if it did look like arse at times on the PS3, lol. 

@OP: I'd say it's worth picking up the game if you've watched videos and think you'll like it.
