Red Dead Redemption 2 may have been released a couple of years ago, but there are some players out there reminding us how great the game actually is. The stories that can be told in the game are limitless and intriguing, especially with an online sandbox mode. One Red Dead Redemption player even drew inspiration for their story from both life and art, by recreating a scene from Leonardo DiCaprio’s movie The Revenant.
If you haven’t seen it, The Revenant tells the story of real-life frontiersman Hugh Glass, and his truly incredible story of revenge—with surprisingly little creative license taken. While out on an expedition to reach an outpost in Yellowstone, Wyoming, Glass was the victim of a brutal grizzly attack. Upon seeing his wounds, the other members of his party were sure that he would die. Glass was not willing to die that easily, though. The rest of his party would abandon him after a week, leaving him for dead—fearing for their own lives.
Here enters our intrepid player, recreating the titular scene from life and the movie—albeit by accident. Our player (u/laconicgrin) had been attempting to get pictures of waterfowl when they spotted the grizzly. They then went to try and take pictures of the grizzly, but were—unsurprisingly—attacked.
Luckily, they were able to snap a couple of good pictures and break away, before hunting down and killing the grizzly. While u/laconicgrin didn’t need to drag themselves—wounded and near death—for over 150 miles to get to safety as Glass did, they were able to snap some pictures that are reminiscent of the movie.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the greatest western games ever made. It’s (fairly) true-to-life gameplay and design remind us of what it was like in the early 1800s in the United States. We can experience the wild west without all of the physical dangers of the wild west, grizzly bears included. We’re glad that Rockstar made such a game and we hope the support for it continues.
