I prefer Skyrim. Your mileage may vary.

Wow, both are excellent games. You can't go wrong with either.

Skyrim has more content single player wise and will probably last you longer, but it depends what you're in the mood for; a western game or an RPG?

Do you want the best western videogame ever made (I don't think I've ever seen this argued by anyone), or one of the best open-world fantasy games ever made?

To be honest both of them are two of my favorites of all time, but Skyrim had a lot more replayability to me.
Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe f*** yourself.

Flip a coin, they are both awesome.
Wolf Parade, Swan Lake, Destroyer, Sunset Rubdown

You have to get both. I don't care how you do it, you just get both.

If you enjoy realistic open world games with incredible graphics, story, setting, good missions, and a lot of random fun tasks that keep you interested but aren't demanding enough to turn you away, then you will be blown away by Red Dead Redemption.

I just played RDR, phenomenal game, I highly recommend it. Haven't gotten to Skyrim yet, but I am sure it is also great. The tiebreaker: RDR is $20 (or less).
I used to play Battletoads on a 2" B&W TV w/ no sound & a half broken controller in 10' of snow uphill both ways! You kids don't know what hard is!

Easy to answer.

They're both great games, with tons of hours to be played. You should play them both, definitely.

RDR is probably half the price of Skyrim, so get that. In the future when you are finished RDR, Skyrim will probably be cheaper than it is now.

Financially, buying RDR first makes sense.

I preferred RDR to Skyrim btw.
