About This Quiz

When the creators of "Grand Theft Auto" created "Red Dead Redemption" and "Red Dead Redemption 2," they didn't just set a crime story in the past, they created a whole new world. Players who had perhaps never seen a western movie were drawn into the stories of Marsden and Morgan as they struggled to do the right thing while doing the wrong thing. Like all great western antiheroes, the player characters of "Red Dead Redemption" games are at their most sympathetic when they are forced into the painful decision to do something wrong for the right reasons.

Following the exploits of a gang of outlaws roaming the west in search of a place to build a peaceful community, the best intentions of the heroes are corrupted, and the stories usually end in poignant tragedy. The Old West was a time and place that was sure to test anyone living in it. Still, the surreal representation of it in "Red Dead Redemption" ups the ante, making every confrontation fraught with risk, every strange a dark mystery, and every adventure the potential to ruin the lives of the game's characters, or even end them.

Do you have the discipline and character to stand up to a world of brutality, greed and lies, or will the old west of "RDR" eat you alive? Can you maintain your honor?
