Every Moment We’re Not Ready to Relive in a Red Dead Redemption Remaster
It seems that the long-awaited release is now in place. Red Dead RedemptionThe remaster will most likely manifest…someday. Recently, it was indicated that if the reported-but-yet-to-be-announced GTA Remastered TrilogySells will Rockstar Games would remaster Red Dead Redemption.. Although it’s still a coin-tossing game in many ways, both would sell well due to both franchises’ popularity and appeal.
While it is not clear how deep this remaster would go, it seems unlikely that the game would drift too far toward Red Dead Redemption II (since it isn’t a remake). Red Dead Redemption 1’s enhanced graphics would be perfect with some fine-tuning. With those new graphics, you can relive some of the most memorable moments from the original. This second attempt will prove just as devastating, if perhaps more, than the first.
John Marston’s death
Undoubtedly, John Marston’s death is likely the biggest moment many think back to when it comes to the first game. Although it doesn’t always happen from everywhere, the build-up to it is intense. John finishes the Pinkertons’ mission. Players see John return home to try to live his life again with his family. As per the mission title, they decide that he is the “last enemy” to be defeated.
It could have been even more poignant if it had the context of Red Dead Redemption II. It is still excruciating to see John pull out the Deadeye, a trusted mechanic in both Red Dead Redemption 2 and 3, to take a few shots with him as an army takes them out.
Dutch’s death is the most impactful. The man was a bit of a mystery in the original game. His last words are clear but lack context. He was the gang leader in its glory days, but it is clear that he has fallen from grace. Dutch’s death is a symbol of his fall from grace, and it’s just as memorable.
Dutch still delivers everything that fans expected in Red Dead Redemption 2. Although he is unique, a leader and loved, his fall from grace drives home every point he made in Red Dead Redemption 1. “Our time has passed, John.” Those are his last words and really drive home many of the western themes in Red Dead Redemption, and now those carry even more weight.
Jack Marston vs Edgar Ross
The moment is slightly different. After his mother passes a few years later, Jack Marston pursues Edgar Ross to take revenge for his father in a rivalry lifetimes in the making. It’s symbolically more about Jack’s father and his gang family, which Red Dead Redemption II really emphasizes. It also shows that Jack, a bookworm and preferred to live in books, is dragged back into the outlaw lifestyle.
Although it’s not as difficult as other games, it is an important moment of reflection. Fans still don’t know what Jack Marston will do. Ross is the only person in the world. The Red Dead’s Pinkertons won’t forgive him, even though he’s retired. While the west is still full of stories and memories, it is now settled. Jack Marston is the last remaining outlaw in a world that cannot sustain him, and knowing all he has experienced and lost is only going to make it more difficult.
