Why Red Dead Redemption 2’s Sean MacGuire is the best Irish character in a video game yet
Yeah, it takes a whole army of bounty hunters to bring in Sean Macguire.
Recently, I was fortunate enough to see Vulfpeck’s Joey Dosik perform live in Dublin’s Sugar Club. After a sincere acapella performance, less than a split second elapsed before a member of the crowd bellowed, “GEWON JOEY!” A thundering applause from the audience immediately ensued, threatening to bring the very walls of the building crashing down.
There’s something about the spirit of Dublin that’s perpetually vital; an unwavering confidence coupled with a burning passion for life. That’s the Ireland I’ve grown up knowing, having spent all 23 years of my life living in Dublin. However, that’s not the Ireland I see portrayed when I play video games – or at least it wasn’t until I came across Red Dead Redemption 2’s Sean Macguire.
