Arthur Morgan, is the protagonist of the famous Red Dead Redemption 2. But beyond his role, Arthur Morgan is a believable character, a character who meets all the values that make him almost a real human being. But how do you get there? Too, Rock star he had to take into account many elements to create and develop Arthur’s personality.
One of the most worked points of the study is to create a character who moves away from extremes. Arthur doesn’t move between the extremes of good and bad, he’s a character who has dark moments and others of goodness.
In other words, just like a normal person, not everything you do will be good, and not everything you do will be bad. This means that we have a character that moves away from the classic movie and video game role of hero or villain
Arthur Morgan moves away from stereotypes
With all of this, the beginnings of a character who doesn’t fit a stereotype begins to take shape. And that at the beginning, It looks like we’re up against a character who mostly evolves on the darker side. Mainly seeing what our character is doing. However, as the story unfolds, we see how Arthur evolves.
This evolution is not the result of chance, it has a cohesion with the experiences of our character, it has meaning and it feels totally organic. And th at’s it, Red Dead Redemption 2
Arthur’s relationships with the rest of the characters allow us to learn more about our protagonist. In this way, we will see that in the guise of a simple fugitive from the Wild West, hides a character full of nuances
This evolution of our character is one of the differential points developed by the company. Since all this, It comes with a simply overwhelming narrative, which envelops us and takes us to a historical context where most of the issues were solved by Winchester.
Emotions as a point of union
On the other hand, one of the more elaborate aspects of the job is the emotions and the way our character experiences and experiences them. Arthur, will experience all kinds of moments and adventures during our game, it will make you experience a wide range of emotions. Without a doubt, anger is an emotion that we will see a lot in our character, mainly in the opening bars.
However, happiness will also make an appearance in many acts of camaraderie that we will experience during missions. Even so, we must stress that the most shocking emotion is fear. Arthur’s fear and sadness are terribly real and they generate empathy with the character like never before.
There are several dialogues in which we will sympathize with Arthur so much that we will experience moments with him that will make us shudder. And it’s at this point when you realize that Red Dead Redemption 2, It’s not just another game, you realize it’s not just a cowboy story.
And that’s it, Arthur Morgan is for me, one of the great characters in video game history. For his charisma, for his voice and the detail of his modeling, but above all for being a credible character, for moving away from black and white and living in a gray full of nuances.
