John Marston Died On The Oregon Trail

The Oregon Trail is a game with a blunt message: you will all die. Repeatedly. Educational, perhaps, but also bleak. It could do with a little lightening up.

So I love this crossover by Microsoft artist Claire Hummel, which keeps the Western theme but adds some Red Dead Redemption to soften the blow.
