GTA V ahead of RDR... LOL
RDR is a bit of a more fresh experience since nobody ever really did a good western game that was open world like that, but overall gameplay probably wasn't as varied GTA. Story obviously great and I loved hunting and many other elements, but towards the end, I just found myself using the campfires to skip around everywhere too much cause I got tired of riding for several minutes to get to a place on a horse just to start a mission where you begin with a 5 minute horse ride where John and someone else talk back and forth.
GTA has just so much damn stuff to do and everything is more densely populated with life. And seriously, they struck gold with the 3 playable protagonists thing.
I honestly didn't think GTA V was all that great.
There wasn't anything compelling to do once you were done with the story. And they changed the driving....that sucked. The driving GTA V is on "easy as hell" mode.
