Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 remains to be one of the most anticipated video games so far. Though Rockstar has yet to fully showcase the anticipated title, fans are already very eager to get their hands on it. Fans are already confident that Rockstar will develop an excellent sequel, but there’s no harm in drawing inspiration from other titles.
One of the biggest releases of last month was Zelda Breath of the Wild. Many consider the title as one of the best games ever made. Though they’re two completely different games, there are actually quite a few things that Rockstar should learn from Nintendo’s masterpiece when it comes to developing Red Dead Redemption 2.
The Open World
One of the best features of Zelda Breath of the Wild is its sprawling new take on its setting, Hyrule. Players can explore everything they see in the vast distance without any invisible walls to block their progression. Aside from the insane large setting, the open world is also filled with secrets and events that kept players busy for hours on end. Thanks to the game’s version of Hyrule, Zelda Breath of the Wild has been dubbed as one of the greatest games ever.
Rockstar should learn from how Nintendo revamped the way Hyrule is in the recent entry. What fans would want is not only a huge open world to explore, but also one where there’s a lot of things to do. It would be fun to explore the Wild West to uncover the secrets it has within. We’ve already seen the magic that Rockstars puts in its open-worlds, but we’re hoping that the developer will kick it up a notch again.
Activities And More Activities
Speaking of things to do, players had their money’s worth in the number of quests and side activities in Zelda Breath of the Wild. Even completing all the Shrines would need hours upon hours of game time. Red Dead Redemption 2 should also have a ton of activities to do including more bounties as well as people to save and help.
Nintendo also introduced a lot of interesting features; features that not even die-hard Legend of Zelda fans have experienced in other entries in the series. It was a risk that paid off greatly. Rockstar shouldn’t also stick to the formula they’ve devised in the first game and they shouldn’t be afraid to add in new features to create an entirely new experience.
