Is probably the best game this gen... and there's no sequel... WTF! I guess next gen, but I understand why Dev's don't even bother making games like this cuz it takes too much ime and money to see a profit.
I disagree that it is the best game this gen, but it was good.
Why does it need a sequel though?
I would be happier with more standalone good games like RDR than the overload of sequels we have at the moment. --- An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman walk into a bar. The barman looks at them and says: "Is this some kind of a joke?
Well... I want a sequel... I don't want one every year but maybe every 2 years. AC is pretty much dead, but Ubisoft is trying to make as much money as they can until it dies out. You might not think it's the best... But overall for most people it is the best. You can throw in...
Skyrim Fallout 3 ME2 Bioshock Tomb Raider Uncharted 2 ... The list goes on and on, but in the end. RDR will be on top of most lists.
I like that Rockstar doesn't churn out titles left and right and have them suffer from sequelitis. Some people will obviously disagree that some of the games are good, but from all the games I've played this gen and considering all the different publishers, Rockstar has been the most consistent with quality in my opinion. --- San Diego Downhill Racing League!

^ True... But R* makes money either way. They have well over 800 people working on games like GTA5 as we speak... No other dev team has that. They make big games that profit for years. We all know the next GTA5 will sell over 8 million easily, this is money in the bank for 4 years dev cycle. Most companies can't do this.
