@zevvion: Yeah, the presentation makes up for a lot of shortcomings in this game (though I am pretty lenient when it comes to games with bad gameplays if they have a good atmosphere or story!)
@ntm: Very interesting, thanks for sharing! RDR is definitely on my wanted list. Been waiting for years for it to come to the PC as I don't own any console :( RDR PC would be pretty amazing from what I've heard.
Just wanted to say, fantastic cinematography! 0:51-1:26 of Michael in the cab was my favorite segment, visually. Reminded me a lot of Michael Mann/Dion Beebe's work on Collateral. Whether or not that was an inspiration, well done!
Thank you! Yeah you got it, that was a big inspiration, and is actually one of the reasons why I love the atmosphere of the game too - I feel like I'm in the world of one of those films with that kind of style (and I love that style) Another inspiration was the movie Drive (2011, starring Ryan Gosling) - mostly the overhead shots in the beginning.
