I have to admit that I’ve been sitting on my thoughts regarding Read Dead Redemption for some time. Not because I don’t adore the game, but because everyone is raving and I fear I would add nothing to the conversation.
Brevity then: Most of the characters are realistic and interesting. Your protagonist in particular is fascinating and likeable. I was sympathetic to Nico Bellic; I was desparate that John Marston prosper. The lengthy denouement was a particularly fine touch on Rockstar’s part.
