A new benchmark has been set though. With the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, the understanding of what a video game can be has been redefined. The detail, story, and moral choices that face the player have risen this game to be held in the same regards as cinema’s greatest works. It is not just art, it is a masterpiece.
The New York Times has likened it to being as influential and impactful as The Godfather, Sopranos, and The Searchers. A huge step in video games demanding the same respect as film.
