After being released in early October this year, Rockstar’s newest blockbuster Red Dead Redemption 2 has racked up over a billion dollars in sales alone. Paramount in this widespread financial success is the overwhelmingly positive reviews the game has received from game critics, with regular praise being given to the artistic nature of the game. Featuring expansive landscapes and gorgeous attention to detail, RD2 has even been called out in the New York Times as being a true work of art, a praise not easily given to video games. Time will tell how video game developers throughout the industry will be able to compete with this game.
