Some sequels are re-skinned money grabbing clones that do little to alter the formula of the original. Other sequels are like Red Dead Redemption, a game that completely re-invented Red Dead Revolver for the better. If a Red Dead 3 is made, it is unlikely to be able to make such a jump in quality. This is largely to do with how damn good Redemption was. That said, there is always room for improvement, so here are ten alterations that good make Red Dead 3 the best of the lot.

Greater location variety

Desert, desert everywhere

The old west and surrounding deserts of Redemption were big and beautiful. Aside from the snowy forests to the north east of the map and the larger town of Blackwater however, desert and the odd shanty town was all you really saw. It provided a reasonable variety but, in a game with as much potential as Red Dead Redemption, reasonable is not quite good enough.

More complete multiplayer experience

So, why can't I tie up some fools in multiplayer?

The posse system of Redemption allowed for an entertaining open world multiplayer experience, but it just lacked a lot of the finer points of its single player counterpart. Where’s the lasso? Why can’t I skin animals for cash? They were small things, (and I can understand the technical difficulty of implementing such mechanics in a multiplayer environment) but they detracted from the suspension of disbelief in the game’s multiplayer. The first thing Red Dead 3 needs to do is make sure the multiplayer retains all of the story mode’s mechanics.

Better structured multiplayer

While we’re wielding the multiplayer bashing stick, it must be noted that the more structured multiplayer modes in RDR just lacked that certain something. It was hard enough to organise matches with strangers in the posse mode but, when you did get there, the Dead-Eye ability made sure that rapid fire won out over skill in the majority of cases. An improved interface and execution of structured multiplayer modes would raise the bar for the Red Dead series.

    nice input to it i like the ideas but they do need more variety to it that was my favorite game of 2010 lets hope they do make a difference we will notice and it make it better i hope

  • This game looks super fantastic awesome possum. I just picked up La Noire and its effing great, i wouldn’t change a thing.

  • How about the most import change of all (for us impatient ones), some sort of way to bypass the skinning animation either through an option or perk that shortens to almost immediatly happen.

    • Skinning is bypassed by stopping your horse on top of the animal before skinning. Kill the animal, ride on top of it, dismount, and press the ‘skin’ button, and the animation will be skipped.

  • but i need 11 thinks 😛 waiting for number 11 LoL

  • More Vibrant Visuals?

    … Did you even watch the screen when you played this game? This game had some of the most beautiful scenes that I’ve seen in a game. Wait until sunrise or sunset and point your camera toward a plain or a mountain/hilly area. Tell me it’s not vibrant and beautiful.

  • I agree the section where you work on the Marston Ranch seemed a bit slow after all of the previous action in the game; it wasn’t just put there to build suspense. It also was done to create a connection to his/your son by ‘raising’ him.

      I completely agree, this is some little punk could be handed gold and would complain that it has a scratch on it.

  • *sigh* It’s ALL about multiplayer with you people, isn’t it?

    First of all, RDR is a deconstruction of the western so asking it to incorporate more classic western themes is stupid. Not to mention that Rockstar dosen’t -NEED- to change anything about multiplayer, nor do they need a multiplayer. The multiplayer felt tacked on and pointless in the game, if they dedicated those resources to the single player we would have ended up with a much more interesting and dynamic expierence.
