** Even beyond the main story line, the game suffers from this. Get a man enough money to go back home? He blows it all on drugs. Help a person build a glider craft? He falls to his death. Track down a cannibal? Not before getting duped by them into doing in an innocent man. It's telling that arguably the closest the game ever comes to a happy ending for ''anyone'' is in a sidequest that involves reuniting a man with his, ahem, [[BestialityIsDepraved favorite horse]].

It's telling few characters that arguably the closest the game ever comes to really got a happy ending was Bonnie. A possible one for ''anyone'' Jack, actually, since in Grand Theft Auto V, you can find a book called "Red Dead", whose author is in a sidequest one J. Marston. If canon, it could mean that involves reuniting Jack eventually did abandon that life, and became a man with his, ahem, [[BestialityIsDepraved favorite horse]].writer like he always wanted to.]]

* {{Misblamed}}: When R* announced that Xbox One now supports RDR through its backwards compatibility, hordes of people started demanding a PlayStation 4 port/remaster "as well". Never mind the fact that it's not a port nor a remaster[[note]]It's like claiming that playing a Win95 game on a Win10 is a port, or that a PS1 game played on a [=PS2=] is a remaster[[/note]], and that R* has no power over PS4's hardware.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: It's Herbert MOOOOOON The Armadillo store owner who, when he is not busy getting robbed or playing poker, only sells 100% American produced wares, [[ConspiracyTheorist free of the Jewish/foreign conspiracy known as the "South Western Railroads"]]. While many consider Herbert Moon interesting, others hate him. He is truly the love him or hate him character of Red Dead Redemption. [[spoiler:He makes a return in Undead Nightmare to show us more of what we love about him, his homophobic, antisemetic, xenophobic, sexist and racist attitudes. Then you get to see zombies eat him.]]

** Landon Ricketts is very popular as well, especially considering he's only featured in four missions. Rockstar received a large amount of complaints for not including him as an online playable character.

** Harold [=MacDougal=], easily the most annoying character in the game, mostly because of the sneaking suspicion that we're actually meant to find him funny. This idea that his racism is a quaint old ineffectual footnote in history that we can all laugh at doesn't quite gel with the broader subtext of the story at that point and your role in it (i.e. helping the army force its way into a Native American settlement and slaughter everyone inside). There's also they way he treated [[NiceGuy Nastas]].
** They seem to have realised this and in Undead Nightmare, [[spoiler:he's killed by an Undead Nastas]].
** The horse you get with negative honor. It's slower than the top-tier horses, and has a tendency to randomly replace your current horse upon whistle. It's speciality is that it runs just as fast on roads and off-road, but it's better to just use a faster horse on roads to escape opponents.
