I was playing Red Dead Redemption at my first aid building since I was on night crew (my night of the week to answer calls). An older lady in the squad was watching and asked if it was a game.
"Yep, it's Red Dead Redemption."
"What's that?" she asked.
"A cowboy game."
"Oh okay I thought it was a movie at first but then I realized you were controlling it!" she said with a laugh.
"Yep I control him," as I walked about and rotated the camera, squatted and then took out my rifle. "See?" I said as I shot a man off his horse at MacFarlane's Ranch. The woman gasped with a chuckle "Oh my!" as the horse ran away.
The woman's husband saw the shot and asked "What about the horse? Can you take out the horse?" Right as the woman began to tell her husband to stop in a humorous tone, I put the running horse in my sights and fired. With the detail Rockstar had put into the game, the horse flopped forward and rolled to the side after a shot to the head, in quite a comical manner for the situation.
The older woman covered here eyes and turned away, "awwww..." in a way that she wasn't really
upset, it was just a "not nice" thing for me to do to a virtual animal. Her husband was laughing along with me as she poked him saying not to encourage such things, again in humor.
Gotta love details. Just felt like typing this somewhere since it gave me a laugh.
