Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of the most detailed games released in 2018, with extensive systems and realistic animal behavior. The game is set in the American West at the turn of the 20th century and features about 200 species from that area. The study, conducted by the University of Exeter and Truro and Penwith College, recruited gamers who were asked to identify photographs of different animals.
Many people underestimate how little they know about animals because when asked multiple-choice questions, those who played Red Dead Redemption 2 were able to identify 10 of 15 American animals more often than those who had not played it. The study asked over 500 gamers to list animals, with a blank text field at first and then with a multiple choice.
Results in the study showed that players who had finished Red Dead Redemption 2’s main campaign or taken a “Naturalist” role in Red Dead Online, were significantly better at identifying animals than those who hadn’t played either of these types. Results also pointed to geographical differences between participants, indicating that people from certain regions fare better when it comes.
The premise of the study was that “edutainment” games are unpopular because they’re harder to engage with. Many gamers already immerse themselves in popular games, and these education-based games can be a side benefit.
It seems like Red Dead Redemption 2 needs more credits than what has been given to them. The game is educational and even the game was not that popular it’s still fun to play. It teaches us more about animals than we know.
