I agree with mostly everything said here, an absolutely superb game and definitely one of my favorite this generation. It really felt like the Old West, While Armadillo certainly did a great job of introducing you to the world, I found it to be a bit slow pace wise.
When you step back and examine it, Read Dead is a very depressing game in its essence, thing's never seem to go your way, and people are either constantly screwing you over or using you for something. And I totally agree about Mexico, when you are riding there it just felt very much like you were entering a new, unfamiliar land, with no friends along for the ride. I found the character development in RDR to be fantastic, John Marston was a really intriguing character, and it was sad to see him die at the end.
Getting revenge was sweet, although I thought that would be something explored in a possible Read Dead 3(I say that because there was Revolver before this) but doing the secret mission closed up that bit.
Overall though, amazing game, definitely my game of the year so far.
