** In the Asian version of the PS3 game, the buttons X and O were messed up in all of the mini-games, making a lot of them virtually unplayable. The bug was (eventually) patched.

** You can choose to make John an absolute asshole should you want to, making him kill people wherever he goes and commit all sorts of crimes. This will bestow you with low honor and affect his personality, making him shout insults to people if you make him converse with them and the law will frequently hunt him. John will still act kind and polite during cut scenes however.

** Although it ''is'' open to interpretation. Some people see [[spoiler:Jack Marston]]'s ultimate fate as a DownerEnding, as he falls [[spoiler:directly into the lifestyle his father fought hard to protect him from. On the flip side, the game is also an examination of the victory of civilization over the frontier spirit, and given how badly civilization treats John Marston, one may feel that his work was to an unworthy goal. In this light, Jack's decision to follow in his father's footsteps is basically a HopeSpot for the frontier.]]
*** An easter egg in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' implies that [[spoiler:Jack did eventually settle down and became a writer sometime after the events of ''Red Dead Redemption'', possibly making it a particularly bittersweet EarnYourHappyEnding.]]

** The whole Stranger story branch with the "Freaky Stranger," with the top hat and everything seems mighty familiar to the plot in that one [[BloodMeridian Cormac McCarthy book.]]

** The journalist who you can meet at several points in the story, including first at the train station, bears a strong resemblance to W. W. Beauchamp from ''{{Film/Unforgiven}}'' in both appearance and dialogue.

* SequelEscalation: ''RedDeadRevolver'' was like ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' in the Old West. This is like ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'' in the Old West.

* SequelEscalation: ''RedDeadRevolver'' was like ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' in the Old West. This is like ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'' in the Old West. Or in Western terms, it takes ''Videogame/RedDeadRevolver'''s Creator/SergioLeone tendencies and adds a generous bit of [[Creator/SamPeckinpah "Bloody Sam" Peckinpah]].

* VideoGameCrueltyPunishment: If you decide to go on a rampage and happen to do a thorough job of shooting up the town, in addition to having several heavily armed Marshals hunting you down and various bounty hunters, if you happen to tag any shopkeepers in the process you lose that shop for several game days. Which could count as cutting your own supply lines because there's only so much ammo you can amass by [[RandomlyDrops random drops]] from downed enemies, especially when you're burning through it by shooting everything in sight.

** In an early game mission where a Stranger wants the deed to some land so he can irrigate water and turn a profit, when you arrive and speak to the old man to negotiate the deed you have the choice to pay for the deed ($200), kill him in cold blood and take it or hogtie the man and steal it that way. Even if you [[TakeAThirdOption take the third option]], the game will treat hogtying and stealing the deed while leaving the man alive the same as killing him because the deed will stained with blood in the handover cutscene just the same.
