Kotaku: Red Dead Redemption not a western


By Blackwalt - Posted on 22 April 2010

Wait... what? Does Rockstar Games know about this?

All those hats and Indians and stagecoaches and six shooters are just for show.

The Real History Behind 2010's Big Western

And yes Rockstar Games does know that 1908 is technically after the West was won.

    So a game that promises to be a Western is set in a time when the West was a thing of the past. Seems like a pretty big mistake for a studio to make! But don't be so quick to pass this off as a piece of irresponsible story-telling.

    While for the most part the "West" was a thing of the past by the 20th century, it wasn't entirely dead.
