Hoo boy, I am playing some serious video games today! Red Dead Redemption 2 just came out, and it’s being called the best video game ever made. I bought it at Sainsburys along with some bagels and curry flavor baked beans. I’m only 2 hours in, still locked into the strict story/tutorial mode, but it is fun. It’s also gorgeous. Graphically this must be the greatest, deepest virtual world ever created. That’s something.
I also have Witcher, but it hasn’t grabbed me like this. Maybe it is the extent to which Red Dead has put the training wheels on. You have to do this, then this, then this. I like that. The game will open out soon, with an open world alongside the quests, but I like this structure telling me what to do.
Not good for my carpal tunnel-ish wrist. But I play with a splint on, so…
(Embarassingly, I first bought the X-Box version. It took me two seconds, before even stepping out of the shop door, to remember I actually had a Playstation. I used to have an X-Box. The girl changed it over with a knowing smile.)
