Lets guess what game I've been playing? That's right! Pokemo- no. Clearly. Red Dead Redemption 2. And its magnificent. I'm as happy as a pig in poop just ambling down Big Valley or along the precarious trails in the Grizzlies.
I've always loved a good western. The idea of a wild and unexplored world is hugely appealing, if somewhat romanticised.
As well as Red Dead, I've also been working my way through Cormac Mcarthy's border trilogy, and listening to Serious Sam Barrett's music.
So I'm somewhat infatuated with the whole mythology of westerns right now.
