The world of Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't just big enough for the two of us - it's big enough for every gamer. Trying to cross Rockstar's massive, sprawling countryside map on foot would be an unbearable chore, but that journey is shortened by your trusty steed.

That said, horses can often become an additional nuisance for the player, as they need constant maintenance and have their own control issues. For all the praise the game has received, there have been countless complaints concerning lackluster mechanics and complicated new gameplay elements, namely the new "cinematic mode." This screen style adds black bars to the top and bottom of a player's screen, simulating the visual style of an Old West film. While this is a compelling concept, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. One wrong move in cinematic mode can spell real trouble for you - especially if you happen to be on your horse. A small rock or a sudden steep incline can send you and your horse flying through the air to your untimely doom.

These horse wipeouts are incredibly annoying when they happen to you, but hilarious when they happen to someone else. Luckily, gamers are sharing these embarrassing spills and hilarious RDR2 exploits on the internet, and people are champing at the bit to see more and more horse destruction.
