i once blogged about a video game called red dead redemption. its just about the most perfect game you could ever play. i spent a solid 24 hours with this game when it was first released. i played the campaign from front to back and fell in love with every second. again, perfect. this week i went back to it. i spent another 18 hours (easy) making sure i had completed the single player game 100%. i enjoyed each and every second. I am still not done with this game.
sadly, one thing is missing from any further game play. during the original campaign, when making the transition from act 1 to act 2, a song is played. it is so perfectly timed and placed in the story that you get chills. as many hours as i have spent on this game, there hasnt been a second time that has felt as magical as the few minutes i spent riding into mexico listing to this perfectly placed song.
i know its hard for anyone to understand this unless they are a gamer and have played this game. maybe im just hoping that at best you can just enjoy a good song. i hope that at the very least. id love for you to play. you may just decide its a whole lot better that than shitty movie you wanna watch.... cus it is.
