GTA 6: Things Fans Hope Rockstar Will Take From RDR2
Yes, Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) is no doubt one hell of a massive Western-style open world game. Aside from its stunning visuals and epic storyline, it’s such a massive game with so many things to do, so many people to meet, and so many places to explore.
With that, here’s a list of things that fans are hoping Rockstar will pick from this game and have it featured on the long-awaited and long-rumored Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA VI).
Players Get To Set Their Own Pace
One of the aspects of RDR2 that makes it amazing is that it isn’t in a hurry to tell its story. In addition to that, it also doesn’t allow the player to speed around its lushly-rendered open world. In playing the game, you actually feel like you’re on a journey.
However, some may find this laid-back story pace annoying, especially the ones who like to do “speedrun records” or people who just don’t have that much free time. The game arguably went too far with its poorly-implemented fast travel system and abundance of mundane, overlong animations for even basic actions like skinning an animal or opening a drawer.
Hopefully, with GTA 6, Rockstar will give players the option to skip the animations with just a press of a button, and offer an optional faster traveling system.
Insanely Diverse Open World
Seeing RDR2’s open world, not only is it gigantic, but it’s also rich in detail and geographically diverse. There are certainly many open-world games out there, but Rockstar took it on a whole another level with RDR2. Hopefully, the same will be applied on GTA 6.
This is a sensitive topic, especially for young children, and some may find this disturbing.
RDR2 is definitely not a game for kids, regardless of what anyone says. The game comes with complex dismemberment mechanics which can be revolting as it allows players to hack and shoot a player’s corpse mostly down to the bone.
For adults (at least 18+), RDR2’s complex dismemberment mechanics and attention to gory details is quite a pleasant surprise. But for kids, they should definitely stay away from it and parents shouldn’t allow their children to play this game.
This may sound sick, but hopefully, GTA 6 will share this attention to detail as well. If that happens, we (73Buzz) believe that kids should be restricted from playing it.
Satisfying Side Content
When it comes to games, there will always be side-quests and mini-games. And in most cases, game developers focus more on quantity rather than quality.
Fortunately, with RDR2, it features optional quests that are both thoughtful and satisfying, so it doesn’t really feel like a chore to do to some extent. Hopefully, GTA 6 will share this aspect as well.
Although RDR2 is a great game, one of its flaws that some players find rather annoying are its “realistic” controls and movement scheme. Apparently, it often comes across as clumsy and frustratingly floaty, especially during combat. Whether this is true or not, that’s debatable.
Another thing that players love about RDR2 is that it offers an absolute ton of customization options. It ranges from your clothing to choice of head and facial hair, and even the shape of your camp. We definitely would like to have this deep level of customization options on GTA 6.
