We often use game anniversaries as a chance to look back at some of our favourite Xbox titles over the years, and we must admit, this one has definitely snuck up on us a bit. Yep, it's been a whole five years, half a decade, since Rockstar unleashed Red Dead Redemption 2 onto our gaming screens - and to be honest we've rarely been this impressed with a game world since.
That's the true shining light of RDR 2 - its open world depiction of the American West. The world of Red Dead 2 really does feel like a living, breathing thing - and despite some complaints about the pace of the game's story, we've always loved getting lost in the rolling green hills and snowy mountains of Rockstar's Wild West sequel.
The characters in Red Dead 2 are just so memorable as well. This gang of ragtag cowboys took us on one hell of a journey back in October 2018, and all of the game's memorable missions, setpiece moments, twists and turns still stick with us today. The series has been thrown back into the limelight as of late with a new version of the original Red Dead Redemption, but for our money, the sequel is a much more impressive experience all round.
