    "While he was the main protagonist in the first Red Dead Redemption game, he also played a large role in the second one as well. He was the living proof that outlaw could change their lives and turn over a new leaf."

    "If there is one word that I would associate with Arthun Morgan, it would be Loyalty. This person is loyal to a fault. His relationship with John Marston is obviously a messy one but mutual respect for one another was there. The best and most memorable red dead redemption character, bar none."

    "It's hard to classify if Dutch was good or someone good at concealing his true nature to everyone. There is no denying that he was a charismatic leader to the gang but his methods and psyche became more and more dark and devious as can be witnessed in Red Dead Redemption 2. This is what makes him one of the best character in the game."

    "Jack Marston was your textbook victim of circumstances. Born out of outlaw parents and was always on the run, never experiencing a normal childhood. The gang and his parents cared for him dearly but it cannot be denied that he witnessed so much violence and hardships at such a young age. That has an effect on a person growth."

    Aaron Murray
    Written on February 28, 2019
    "Your typical antagonist, schemer, and opportunist. He played a big role and contributed to the internal turmoil that developed between Dutch, Arthur, and John within the gang. All of which built up to a riveting final confrontation."
