When comes down to popular games of the 10’s decade one of the many titles that instantly comes to mind is the original Red Dead Redemption game which was released for the Xbox 360 and the PS3 in 2010. Since its release Red Dead Redemption has been seen as a cult classic and managed to sell over 15 million copies in less than two weeks. While the graphics and the visual quality of Red Dead Redemption added to the overall appeal of the game itself the same thing would not have been the case if it was released in the early 00’s. Despite, having more inferior visuals on a console like the PS2 or Xbox Red Dead Redemption 2 could have been just as popular back in the early 00’s as it was in 2010.
However, its questionable whether or not Red Dead Redemption would have sold as much as it did in a short period of time if it were released 8-9 years earlier than it was. Back in the early 00’s we had games such as GTA: III, GTA: Vice City, Halo and other that became very popular as action-adventure shooters for that decade as a whole. But since the Gran Theft Auto were games also developed by RockStar Red Dead Redemption could have definitely of had the same amount of success that it did if it were released around ’03 for the PS2 or sometime in the mid 00’s on the PS3.
