So it goes

This weekend has seen me reach the end of Red Dead Redemption II. I have never been as moved by the ending of a game, or by a videogame protagonist. The sheer depth of this game — so much so that its credits rolled for thirty minutes, and I was happy to watch because of the glimmers of story that continued to be revealed throughout —  puts it in a class by itself, in my opinion.   No videogame, and precious few actual movies, have had character drama this good.   I bought a PS4 just to play the game, and I don’t regret it a second. I look forward to continuing to explore this amazing world Rockstar created, but now that the first flush is over — time to go back to reading!

    Indeed…there's an aftergame where you can continue to explore the world at will, which is what I was doing there — moving into a part of the map that's only accessible once the story is finished. Desert country, like New Mexico, Arizona, and west Texas.

    Games? … the last game I played was Pong … yep … I’m old ….

    They've grown a bit since then. 😉
