Rockstar is always so very strong on characterisation that, even going back to beginning of GTA, its games always contain delicious scripting. There is so much quotable scripted dialogue in Red Dead Redemption II that we could fill this entire issue of OXM just with those gems.

The game is packed with chatty non-named NPCs too, from farm-hands having their own hilarious conversations to the bloke looking for his mate, Gavin.
