"Red Dead Redemption 2," out now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, is one of the most detailed video games ever developed.

Just how detailed is the game, exactly?

While there are tons of activities and storylines to explore in "Red Dead Redemption 2," Joe from YouTube gaming channel DefendTheHouse recently decided to spend a full day in the game just following around a handful of the game's NPCs, or non-playable characters, and nothing more.

The results are fascinating, as these characters hardly play a role in the game, yet they still have their own unique schedules and characteristics.

Take a look at what happens when you follow around random people in "Red Dead Redemption 2" all day:

The DefendTheHouse channel surmised that this particular character must work in the sheep yards, generally keeps to himself, and might be from out of town, given how he's sort of a loner.

Let's look at another example, just to see how different two NPCs can be. Let's name this guy "Jameson."

The DefendTheHouse gaming channel believes this NPC is a construction worker, is probably unmarried, and could even be homeless, adding he also "drinks too much."

Those are just two examples of what NPCs do all day in "Red Dead Redemption 2," but the video from DefendTheHouse has even more examples to share.
