John Marston is a fictional character in the Red Dead video game series by Rockstar Games. Portrayed by actor Rob Wiethoff, he is the main protagonist of the 2010 video game Red Dead Redemption and its standalone expansion, Undead Nightmare, and the secondary protagonist in its 2018 prequel, Red Dead Redemption 2. In his younger years, John was an outlaw who rode in the infamous Van der Linde Gang, committing multiple crimes. After the gang's downfall and eventual disbandment in 1899, he tries leaving his life of crime behind to become a rancher and a family man. After twelve years of hiding, he is located by the Bureau of Investigation in 1911 and forced to hunt down the last surviving members of his former gang in exchange for his family and his freedom. The character was well received, with many critics citing his maturity, moral complexity and ambiguity, and quest for atonement as focal points of the first game. Wiethoff's portrayal of Marston was also met with acclaim.
