    Jfc. I’d play this game that I didn’t even like again just to look at it.

    I mean it’s not Red Dead 1, but I’m also not 18 anymore and I still thoroughly enjoyed this one.

    I have heard from multiple friends that they thought it was a slog. I personally love it.

    I’m a cunt but I was fully prepared to love this game. Loved Arthur, Sadie and Dutch but loathed the pacing, gameplay and to a large extent the story.

    It's one of my favorite games ever made.

    I enjoyed it a lot. Fast travel needs fixed. Maybe allow it from a campsite?

    Tho sometimes I did enjoy letting the cinematic ride happen while listening to the soundtrack. Imagine it will be even more enjoyable for the PC people.

    This is me. May be my fault for having such high expectation because RD1 was on of my favorite games ever. The story just seems real repetitive and I feel like it takes fucking forever. I still haven’t even finished it and I’ve had it since day one.

    Rockstar made some very conscience design decisions geared twords immersion and that’s fine for a lot of gamers but I like to keep my fingers moving and stay engaged. The story itself had some moments that I felt robbed it of impact for me as well. That being said, I’m a huge fan of Arthur Morgan as a character. Just felt he deserved better

    I enjoy the pacing a lot, and I think Rockstar had balls to make it as slow as it is.

    Me too. It sped up a lot towards the end, and the last few acts were incredible.

    I loved the pacing. It was the first game where Rockstar was able to stay serious the entire time and not have any characters that felt like caricatures.

    Also appreciate how many of the missions are so different. Its easy for RPGs to have the same monotonous missions over and over.

    AubCabs may be the first person I've seen to say that an RPG felt like it took too long as a negative thing... Make the MFer take 300 hours to complete for all I care as long as it doesn't get monotonous as others have said. And if the root of the complaint is that it DID feel monotonous then that may make the comment lose all credibility altogether. This was one of the most diverse RPGs I've ever played.

    If you want to see what a repetitive RPG feels like - go play the original Assassin's Creed.

    I had no issues with pacing but just wish there was a reason to play it again

    No end game

    Online sucked

    IMO saying “the game pacing is too slow” and “the game takes forever to finish” are completely different statements.

    I feel like the pacing fits the western narrative. I’m just pumped for the next one. Probably playing as Jack

    I just hope we get a single player dlc. Best game I've played in a very long time but it's not like gta with the replay value for me

    It does and as far as one-time through RPGs go that don’t have leveling up and skill trees like the hardcore ones do, it’s a lot of material. The pacing early on is slow but I think necessary for people, esp ones that didn’t play the first one, bc there’s a lot of cut scenes and dialogue exposition. Once you get to St.D it picks up the pace a lot unless you choose to hunt and fish in your spare time between story missions.

    I understood the pacing decision. It felt so much more authentic than other third person action/adventure games and I loved it.

    I feel sorry for some of my buddies that I helped talk into playing it that gave up because of the “slog” aspect. Yeah, the first act is slow but it’s an act of total immersion. If you resist it, you’re going to feel disconnected from the game and think nothing is happening.

    Red Dead online has had a lot of new updates lately. Bounty Hunter, Hunting, Bootlegging etc. The bootlegging missions are long and have been pretty awesome.
