One detail found by a gamer while playing Red Dead Redemption 2 showcases a hilarious way Arthur Morgan was better than John Marston. When it comes to both characters, it goes without saying that Arthur and John are incredibly important to the story of the Red Dead Redemption games, but there’s one specific skill that Arthur excels at while John could use some practice.
The Red Dead Redemption games are some of the most immersive experiences gamers can sink their teeth into, and this immersion is helped by the incredibly well-rounded and realistic characters that Rockstar has brought to life. Two of the most notable characters in the series are clearly Arthur Morgan and John Marston since they have both been tragic protagonists in the franchise’s overarching story. Although Arthur and John have their differences, they also have their similarities due to their outlaw lifestyles, but one eagle-eyed player found a very specific difference between the two outlaws that adds a hilarious level of realism.
A Reddit user known as Grandad6716 noticed a specific detail when it comes to the level of Arthur and John’s drawing skills. In Red Dead Redemption 2 it is made clear through his journal entries that Arthur Morgan is an incredibly skilled artist. John Marston, on the other hand, is unfortunately not as skilled as his outlaw counterpart.
Grandad6716 took a screenshot of both Arthur and John’s journals, revealing that Arthur is clearly a much more talented artist than John. Compared to Arthur’s artwork, John’s almost looks like a child’s drawing. Although the comparison is funny, some fans commenting on Grandad6716’s post made some great points about how this is an awesome detail that shows how much of a role model Arthur was to John. It’s a funny detail that has an unexpected level of sweetness to it, showcasing just how detailed Red Dead Redemption 2 truly is.
Despite Red Dead Redemption 2 being released back in 2018, it’s amazing to see how small details, like the difference in Arthur and John’s drawing skills, can still be discovered by players. There’s a reason why Red Dead Redemption 2 is still hailed as one of the best open world games by both critics and gamers, and hidden gems like the one Grandad6716 came across is a perfect example of why it’s still such a beloved game. Even after five years, Red Dead Redemption 2 still surprises many who play the game.
