THE DARK TOWER

Zoom

Rockstar's willingness to inject supernatural elements into Red Dead Redemption give the game an occasionally menacing tone.

The most memorable of these is the figure known only as 'The Mysterious Stranger' - a man with metaphysical characteristics that appeared before John Marston with detailed knowledge about his past and his future.

The stranger had the ability to sense the presence of Marston and was seemingly immortal. The mystifying quality of the Strange Man has led to speculation and several theories about his identity and relevance.

Some say he is God, others say he's the Devil - and some have even guessed that he is another incarnation of John himself. However, neither the game nor Rockstar has provided an answer.

It would be mouth-watering to see Rockstar embrace this 'supernatural' element and pair it with a sprinkle of horror and fantasy fiction. (The developer's already going some way to this, of course, with the upcoming Undead Nightmare Pack).

The result could be a mixed-genre masterpiece akin to Stephen King's The Dark Tower. Who wouldn't want to play that?
