Red Dead Redemption introduces itself

The above four-minute introduction to Read Dead Redemption‘s gameplay, beyond being awesome, does a commendable job of showing and explaining the goals Rockstar has for the genre-breaking, as they call it, open-world game, its environments, characters etc. It also just happens to be filled to the brink with in-game footage and is subsequently our first proper look at the title. Much better than reading a mile-long press release, I think everyone agrees.
