Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel that finds Arthur Morgan, John Marston, and the rest of the Van der Linde gang on the run from the law in 1899. It boasts an enormous, highly detailed open world that it lets you explore at a leisurely pace. You can rob trains, get drunk, bust friends out of jail, and generally paint the town red.
