My Video Rant – Red Dead Redemption: Mild, Mild West
I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one. Among other things, Rockstar games is well known for inventing ways for the character to score some sex. In the newly released action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption, prostitutes are back and in full force.
The saloon, on paths, even in the middle of the desert.. these ladies are everywhere you can imagine, much like the game’s modern cousin, GTA. The only difference is that you can’t sleep with them in this game.
What’s up with that? I did say these guys made Grand Theft Auto, right? Let’s not forget the infamous Hot Coffee mod!
In this skit I document my plight as a bounty hunter that receives no true reward for his efforts.

Maybe they are trying to capture the women in the audience that may be offended by their character suddenly nipping off for a western-style romp. Or, perhaps it wasn’t intended as a political statement at all.
