    "I prefer the Mustang, personally, mainly due to its badass name, but this ones atts are better, second only to the Arabian, and it isnt too expensive. So its good, I guess. Its speed is also impressive."

    "Most expensive horse in the game, so it's true when they say that you get what you pay for. High stats and most of all, prominent testicles on the horse itself. R* never ceases to impress the playerbase with their wacky graphics! :D"

The Wild West only lasted for about 30 years? The era known as the Wild West, or the American Frontier, began after the Civil War in 1865 and ended around 1895. The west of the Mississippi River during the late 1800s had many untamed territories. It's known for its lawlessness that resulted in wild and rowdy behavior as people claim. It was, in fact, only normal colonial culture and behavior during those times. That didn't stop people from making grandiose stories about it. That sense of independence and complete disregard for any and all action. It's one of the things that resonates and fascinates people.

Hollywood glamorized the whole thing, even the term "cowboys" was not what it seemed. They were instead called "cattlemen" that did hard labor. They also didn't wear cowboy hats and only had one set of clothes until they tore. Western movies were a big hit regardless of the facts. It was all for the sake of good entertainment and that's never a bad thing. The same thing has happened with the gaming industry. The Red Dead Redemption franchise by Rockstar Games is a prime example of this. Its latest entry, Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) released recently to high praises and awards. It is one of the best open-world games for the PS4 together with the company's other game, Grand Theft Auto 5. RDR2 provides players with a gritty and ground take on the Wild West. Its world is vast, alive and every inch of it is waiting for curious explorers. The locomotive train is there for your transport needs. Red Dead Redemption 2 horses are better and feel more authentic though.

    "The stock car of the wild West, but you have to admit that it is fast, even tho its a rather basic breed. Good for starters if you value speed."

    "Looks like ur average work/farmhorse. Splattered colors n all that shizz. But it gets tired slowly so thats a major + if you plan on working your mount to the bone at the start of the game"
