A Reddit post in which a punter described his 65-year-old father’s fondness for Red Dead Redemption 2 went viral.
The 2018 open world action game, a sequel to 2010’s hit game Red Dead Redemption, is among the best-selling games of all time.
Red Dead 2 received strange reviews when it came out, with many critics unable to match the depth and scale of the game.
Although it took about 50 to 80 hours to finish the game’s story mode, Reddit user ApeWatcher explained that his father, in his 60s, had finished the game surprisingly more than 30 times.
“Red Dead 2’s Story Mode plays for hours every day,” the post reads.
“He’s finished the story more than 30 times so far. I tried to get him into other games, but he just wants to play Red Dead 2.”
Although Video games are still said to be a hobby mostly for teenagers, the Reddit post offered a handy opportunity for older gamers to share their enthusiasm.
One person replies, ” I’m a 58-year-old grandmother. I’m still playing!, “he wrote.
This year, an emotional post shared by a 75-year-old woman about her experience playing Red Dead 2 also went viral on Reddit.
