How Should Rockstar Approach A New Red Dead Game?
Okay, so is Rockstar finally done with Grand Theft Auto V?
If so, can we assume they've moved on to their next project? I think it's a new Red Dead and if that's the case, I think we need a brainstorming session.
What do you want to see?
Red Dead Redemption wasn't perfect but it was darn close in my estimation. However, I can say that given the better technology, I think many improvements can be made. Firstly, I believe we can start adding those role-playing-like elements that we're starting to see in a lot of sandbox titles. In other words, I'd like to be able to advance the level of my protagonist. If not a level, maybe he could become more proficient in various things as time goes on; the more he uses a rifle, the better he gets, and the more he rides his horse, the better he gets.
Speaking of which, that's another option: Maybe we could add depth to the whole frontier existence. The horses in RDR were all the same but as any cowboy knows, that's hardly true in reality. They should be as diverse as the cars in GTA; sometimes you get a nag and every once in a while, you alight upon a fiery steed. You'd be more apt to keep a good horse protected, and maybe save him for the tougher missions, for instance. And maybe you could even run your own farm! Well, that's taking it a touch too far...doing that might shift the focus.
