Let's Just Enjoy How Realistic Red Dead Redemption's Animals Are For A Second

This video by Red Dead Online Guides pulls the camera away from the player and just watches Red Dead Redemption 2's animals go about their daily business, revealing tricks and habits you’d probably never pick up on if you were just pushing Arthur Morgan around all the time.

Like, I had no idea that the eagles were not just hunting for food, but different types of food. Or that animals will compete for kills. Or that you can stand down a bear like that!

Also nice to see Rockstar made sure they got the pigs right.

Sincere question; having avoided spoilers for both games, and having just gotten back into console gaming (and just finished, respectively, Skyrim and Witcher 3), my next slated gaming projects were to be Red Dead Redemption (which I have made certain to be backwards-compatible) and Red Dead Redemption II. The closest I have come to a spoiler is the claim, which I am uncertain of, that Red Dead Redemption II is in fact a prequel of Red Dead Redemption, which would suggest that I should play 2 first, then 1 to go chronologically. I am otherwise completely new to both games.

Which order would you recommend I play them in?
