    Picking it up this week. But I believe Last of Us 2 will surpass it as the GOAT.

    i remember now why i didn't care about RDR 1 and didn't get the hype of 2.

    movement is so ****ing slow, 90% of the time i'm just riding the ****ing horse and having to keep tapping A to make it go a decent speed. The controls are ****. Slow walking in camp. spend more time drinking, eating, and tearing down the camp than accomplishing tasks.

    it's a chore booting up the game, because that's what i'm doing in the game.. nothing compelling story wise has happened that has redeemed the gameplay after "20%" game completion.

    this is why rockstar never had real gameplay trailers.. it doesn't exist

    got through the first three missions in the intro last night. looks amazing. shooting feels right.

    i don't see how the first one was slow. if you don't like rockstar controls, i understand. a lot of people don't, but if the first is any indication rdr2 won't be slow once it opens up. i mean it's more sparse and desolate by design but there was so much to do.

    according to the % seen when i save the game, 1/5th done and i'm still riding the horse 90 miles while having to sit there tapping A over and over and over and over. AC Odyssey's use of the horse was so much better. Select a waypoint, horse follows the road automatically. Set and forget if you know where you want to go. If you want to explore, you arent trotting at 1mph and you can just hold the sprint button down.

    "so much to do".. such as? hunting to unlock gear that is only cosmetic? the only thing i see to do is story missions and i'm 20% done after like 10 hours, where the majority of that is horse riding and slow walking in camp

    they have legendary animals.. that you can use the pelts to unlock ugly ass outfits.. is that the only use? random strangers can give "honor".. which i've yet to see a real effect of this as i can't get beyond neutral honor, but can go down constantly.

    i haven't gotten this far but i saw a clip where you sit there and watch nails being driven into boards.. for like 5 mins.. get real.. am i playing a game to entertain or a chore simulator

    yeah i've seen other people with your complaints. i'm not far enough in to know yet, but based on the first game part of what i liked was how desolate things were between towns. made random encounters feel more epic. but also you can unlock fast travel at some point.

    as far as things to do, in the first i had a lot of fun doing side quests/bounty missions, playing poker, having random duals, etc. i assume there is more content like this in rdr2

    but yeah i dunno i just loved exploring the world and i think i'm really going to love this one. even in the intro levels everything is so massive.

    You can upgrade your tent and fast travel from your camp to any city.

    The game is supposed be slow paced. It's about exploration and freedom in a massive world.

    **** I spent awhile yesterday just hunting and fishing.

    I would argue the game is not linier enough. You can kind of forget to go do story missions.

    I spent countless times just riding around and exploring in RDR... game puts you into the world of living there.

    Felt real.

    I can't comment on 2.
