It takes those kinds of companions to appreciate the useful ones, like Elizabeth in BioShock Infinite, who tosses you ammo, opens tears, and manages to keep herself alive. If Elizabeth can survive without your help, why can’t your gang members in Red Dead Redemption 2? Dutch’s gang is a bunch of rough-n-tumble badasses! Elizabeth is basically a Disney Princess! It just doesn’t make any sense. “No%u2026 it damn well doesn’t.” When a gunfight breaks out, you have enough to worry about. You’re usually taking cover behind something, trying to shoot down enemies without getting pumped full of lead yourself. The least your fellow bandits can do is hold their own and stay alive long enough for the mission to end. Apparently, that’s too much to ask. If you aren’t keeping a watchful eye on these so-called killers, acting as a chaperone while also thinning the herd of hostiles, they’ll inevitably be shot to death %u2026 and you’ll have to start all over. Please, don’t make us babysit our allies in games. %u201CI’m gonna let you in on a little secret: I’m not a real babysitter.” For all of the realism you’ll find in Red Dead Redemption 2, there are a couple of things that ask you to suspend disbelief.
