Rockstar’s epic is still the king of open-world immersion – here’s why.
Detailed Interactions With NPCs
Remember how it felt to interact with Night City’s denizens as a Nomad? How about as a Corpo or Street Kid? If you answered “the Life Paths are made up and the choices don’t matter”, you’d be correct. But in Red Dead Redemption 2, you could do more than just pass by people in towns. You could greet them and have short conversations to obtain more information. Conversely, they could be absolutely cold to your presence and say nothing. Even cooler is that Arthur can acknowledge that coldness with some awkward lines before moving on.
