Fun moment: Got off my horse to shoot a deer and when I turned back some guy had jumped on my horse & stolen it! Took off after him (tough to keep up on foot) and when I turned a corner I saw a cougar had attacked him and killed his (my) horse. I waited for the cougar finish him off then shot the cougar. Win win! Well...except for that fact that I need a new horse.
Wow that is pretty exciting! WHERE IS MY PC PORT!!!!!???

That is awesome. Now you have to steal a new horse.

Can hardly wait for this to come to PC if it ever does.

You can steal them or just break in a wild one (catch it with lasso and try not to get bucked off).

I know this is terrible, but I love the racism in the game. No one in the Wild West seem to like Jews.

Edit:
Was just riding around the desert and came upon someone being held hostage. I killed the hostage taker and free the hostage.
He thanks me and starts walking off into the wilderness just to get bitten by a poisonous snake 50m from where he was tied up. He died instantly.

Some more fun random encounters:

Random guy runs up and asks me to help prevent his friend from being hanged. I ride up to the scene of the hanging and fire off a couple of shots at the rope in order to rescue the hangee. Unfortunately my aim was low by about two feet, resulting in two revolver bullets to the skull of said hangee. My bad.

Come across two guys chasing some other guy across the desert. I bravely ride in and gun them down, only to be faced with the "you lose honor" message.
Upon investigation of the bodies I notice sheriff badges pinned to their jackets. Guess they were chasing an escaped prisoner. Oops.

Also, drive-by knifings are awesome.

Some are already calling RDR game of the year. I've ordered a copy thru Amazon. A) It's cheaper than buying locally, and B) I've never played an old west cowboy-themed game before. Can't wait to play!

Well my brothers picked it up for PS3. It looks like a great game but I want it for PC as I can't stand the visuals for the PS3. It has no AA.

Loving this game. I have 20 hours into it and barely scratched the main story line. It's all so much fun. And nobody brings characters to life like Rockstar. Take the best elements of GTA, Fallout 3 and Borderlands and you have RDR.
