Rockstar Games are one of the biggest and most iconic video game developers to have ever existed, although that is largely down to some of the exceptional video games that they have managed to provide the industry.
Prepare to venture into a dangerous fantasy world to embark upon an epic quest for redemption that’s inspired the unforgiving philosophy of the 'Souls' games.

I think it's safe to say that Red Dead Redemption impressed everyone when it released back in 2010. It was nominated for numerous accolades, and won many as well - including Game of the Year. Nowadays, it's widely regarded as one of the best games of all time. But its zombie-infested follow-up Undead Nightmare deserves as much if not more praise for being one of the best DLCs ever made.
