Red Dead Redemption 2 'alternate ending' is the most satisfying thing we've ever seen

Red Dead Redemption 2 'alternate ending' is the most satisfying thing we've ever seen

Justice is finally served

If there is one thing we can all agree on after playing Red Dead Redemption 2, it’s that we hate Micah. Luckily, this “alternate ending” has a way of dealing with one of the most hated characters in gaming.

Micah Bell. Oh, where should I start?

As one of the Van der Linde gang members and serving as an antagonist in Red Dead Redemption 2, Micah has solidified himself as one of the biggest villains in gaming history.

Check out the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer below!

From his constant antagonising to his outright betrayal, Micah is a man Arthur (and the player) simply has to put up with but one mission in the game could have given us the chance to silence him once and for all.

In the mission “Blessed are the Meek?” Arthur must rescue Micah from prison after he is arrested for a double murder in Strawberry.

Although many players left this mission as long as possible so they didn’t have to deal with him, they did have to eventually head over there and break him out. Whether they shot their way through the prison or used dynamite to burst through the cellar, Micah would eventually be freed and go back to being annoying.

However, one video over on r/RDR2 offers an alternate ending to this quest and I, for one, support it wholly.

The video shows Arthur ignoring Micah’s pleas for help, making his way down to the cellar and blowing it up with Micah still trapped inside. Of course, this caused the credits to roll but I think this is a necessary sacrifice and it seems that many agree.

One comment read: “Perfect. Best game, with the ending as well. Now let's go fishing.”

Another agreed, saying: “Each play through I always avoid this mission as late as possible since playing it for the first time. Micah should've stayed where he belongs.”

It also got people talking about there being more choices in the next entry which could allow us to leave certain characters (not naming any names) to die. However, with Rockstar usually focusing on a linear narrative, this remains to be seen.
