        No, you got fat because you stopped being as active and started eating and drinking more. Turning 30 doesn't automatically make your body start producing fat out of thin air

    >Ganker literally interprets the complete opposite
    RDR2 has one of the simplest plots ever and Ganker didn't manage to understand even this.
    Then again, I should have known that Ganker's IQ had dropped to the single digits when I saw an entire thread dedicated to fricking Black Ops and people struggled to understand it.
    Reminds me of this pajeet channel I cam across that's just entire videos explaining the endings of movies like Back to the Future, something that even a fricking 5 year old could understand.

      Ganker is more stupid now, but one thing of this place is that when it wants to hate a game it will pretend to be even more stupid than it really is just to seethe more about it.
      Doom Eternal is another example of Ganker pretending to be stupid to seethe about a game, but the prime example will always be Death Stranding, a game that Ganker wanted to hate with every fiber of it's being because they couldn't accept that, not only their father figure Hideo Kojima didn't deliver a movie with MGSV, but that he was moving on from MGS altogether.

      What "calling it a day" happened? Depending on player choice, Arthur either ends up continuing to be a piece of shit to the point even Micah feels superior after killing him, or ends up dying with his last act being helping his friend start a new life. There is no calling it a day. He died. He would have died even if he rented out a motel room and laid around for a couple days. He was out of time.

    Arthur is a annoying character, I despised him, all he did was wallow in his misery especially towards the end I was sick of his shit. John was such a better character in RDR 1, when he finally gets back to his family I felt something, then when it all comes tumbling down I didn't need John to monologue at me for 10 minutes I felt cheated, but at the same time he had it coming it was a bad end but ultimately he had to die for his crimes like so many others and he went out like a man, he faced death head on

    I know you're shitposting but Arthur genuinely is well written.
    He's the classic cult-member. You don't immediately think Dutch's crew is a cult, but it is, you know it is by the end. He may find beating the Polish guy distastful, he might hate beating the shit out of Mr Downes, but he does it because the one (1) moral authourity in his life said that it's fine and for the greater good.
    Men kill, rape, murder and maim for the greater good every day.
    The slow realization he's always been a mook and entirely at the whimsical mercy of a crook and shyster who can, and does, throw him away as soon as it is convenient is genuinely emotive.
    Arthur is far from perfect, but the entire point of the plot is he tries to do the right thing. Redemption isn't given, nor even necessarily earned, hell Arthur can die and not a soul mourn him, but he still tries.
    The rejection of the false prophet, of the cruel, of the manipultive, to accept humans are fundamentally flawed. It would hit anyone with an adult's level of cognitive ability, to reason, to feel.
    The fact "people" can't see Arthur as a victim of his circumstances and Dutch as the lowest son of a b***h in the world can probably be empiracally measured against IQ and melanin content.

                You are half-right, the other anons are simply giving a poor explanation of how cults and/or childhood indoctrination works.

                You are correct in assuming that everyone has a choice - even if the choice is between death or compliance, it is still a choice. However, no-one can choose an option or life-path that is unknown to them. Cults and childhood indoctrination work by progressively limiting the options that one can perceive: ideology, religion, ritual, societal pressure - all can be used to narrow the pool of available options that you can choose until people are "stuck" on a pathway through life from which they can see little hope of escape.

                A good example of this concept can be observed in the training of elephants. At birth, a baby elephant is tied to a rock with a simple rope. The baby elephant struggles and pulls but, being a baby, he cannot break the rope. Eventually, the elephant gives up trying and accepts that the rope is unbreakable. Even when the elephant is an adult, and could easily snap the rope in half, he never even tries - because his mind has all but dismissed this course of action as a viable option. The elephant believes the rope is unbreakable and thus is imprisoned by his own belief.

                Humans work the same way - unless they can see and understand another way, another path, another possible life - they will remain on the course they are set upon. Humanity, as a whole, possesses infinite choices and potential, however, the majority of people lack the ability to see or chose +90% of the choices available to them.

                Taking responsibility for not magically knowing things outside of what you've been taught and learned all your life is something children raised on andrew tate believe. That is not how anything works.
                The shit you're spewing is basically blaming some kid who just finished high school for not having the wisdom and experience of a 20 year combat veteran who earned a doctorate in medical science just because the kid hit 18, and you were told that hitting 18 makes you a supergigaadult who knows everything and can do anything.

    I always interpreted that Arthur thought he was gonna die by headshot or hanging, something that wouldn't give him a lot time to think about his death so he never really faced up to his own mortality.

            Yeah, killing in cold blood is something Hosea and Dutch have actually drilled into Arthur as a bad thing. They're supposed to be Robin Hood type bandits that steal from the fat cats and live free in the country. Obviously that's Dutch putting a lot of lipstick on a pig but Arthur buys into it enough to keep going.

            If you do shoot randos (and even kill random animals without harvesting them) Arthur will actually sit down at camp and have little confessionals with one of the girls about how disturbed he is by his own behavior. Maybe that only happens if you're higher honor though? I got the animal one on accident before I figured out the hunting mechanics and I got the murder one because the aggro rules in the game don't make any fricking sense, so I wound up shooting down half of Saint Denis trying to defend myself from a mugging.
            Point is, Arthur doesn't seem to be the type to just shoot randos on a lark; the whole gang is pretty shook up when Dutch drowns Bronte and Bronte had it coming.
