Earlier this week, Rockstar Games sent the Internet spiraling out of control in uncontrollable hype levels when it unveiled the gameplay of Red Dead Redemption 2, which looks as exceptional as you would expect.

At over six minutes long, the gameplay video not only provided a meaty look at the title, but also showcased a level of graphical fidelity of the highest order. Whether it was the life-like horse physics, the beautiful mountain backdrops, the dirty and bustling western towns, the muddy characters, or the stumbles of dead men in a combat encounter, everything about Red Dead Redemption 2, visually, was awe-inspiring, and among some of the best looking games ever.

That said, it has been eight years since Red Dead Redemption hit and awed in 2010. Back then, for the time, it was an equally visually treat, but by 2018 and Red Dead Redemption 2 standards, it don't look as pretty no'mo.

To illustrate the graphical advancements from Red Dead Redemption to Red Dead Redemption 2, the advancements of eight years, YouTube channel ElAnalistaDeBits has released a new comparison video showing each game running at 4K with the sole purpose of illustrating the graphical difference of the two. And while Red Dead Redemption was a terrific looking game in 2010, there's a huge difference between the two.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is poised to release on October 26 and be the only game you play for the remainder of 2018. For more news and media on the title, click here. For more information, here's an official story pitch:
