YMMV: Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare
  • Awesome Music: The Song that plays as you ride towards the final mission. It's called "Bad Voodoo" and it's by The Kreeps. Listen to it here:
    • Somehow Rockstar manages to make riding long, otherwise uneventful distances that most players would rather skip the most awesome parts of the game.
  • Anticlimax Boss You may spend a good long while waiting for the Chupacabra to show up and fight you, but it'll take you only one good shot to bring it down.
  • Good Bad Bug: Killing the Unicorn causes it to spasm all over the place randomly. [1]
    • It's possible to kill characters like Seth and Landon. This will not change their future appearances.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The Bigfoot rumor in San Andreas is done for real here. The name of the Achievement/Trophy you get for killing one? "Six Years in the Making". To bring it full-circle, this very mission was later parodied in Grand Theft Auto V.
  • Moral Event Horizon: West Dickens actually has the gallstones to hawk his All-Natural Snake Oil to the traumatized, grief-stricken, injured survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse, outright preying on their desperation, for the whopping price of 100 gold coins. John seems prepared to shoot West Dickens himself for such a low-class act, which scares him into at least giving the stuff away free.
  • Narm: The opening scenes where John's family is zombified lose a bit of punch due to the fact that John spends most of it in his underwear, which, while period accurate, looks a lot like footie pajamas. Seeing a stone cold badass like John Marston wearing that is more than a bit giggle-worthy, especially as the hog-tie animation puts his behind right in front of the camera. And the underwear is one of the available outfits for him, meaning you can have Marston take on the zombie apocalypse in his skivvies. Though given John's altogether nonchalant reactions to having to hogtie his wife and son and go off to stop the zombie apocalypse, it seems likely the whole scene was meant to be a little tongue-in-cheek to begin with.
    • Which would be supported by lines like these:
    John (to his zombified family): Now I don't know what's gotten into you sick, crazy bastards. Probably just the flu. Jack, be kind to your mother. Abigail, teach the boy right from wrong. Stop biting chunks outta people!
  • That One Sidequest: There's one achievement that requires you to headshot 5 zombies in a row with the sniper rifle, without using Deadeye. It's ridiculously difficult to do this conventionally, because as soon as you pop the first one in a group, the rest will charge or stagger toward you with their heads bobbing all over the place, and the sniper rifle's aiming mechanic isn't the greatest. A better way to do it is to get into melee range with the sniper rifle equipped, and perform 5 executions.
    • Or just hide on top of Fort Mercer.
