      The open world absolutely blows the fuck out of Elden Ring. The only equal quality in Elden Rings open world is the scenery which is still edged out by RDR2. Meanwhile RDR2 has more stuff in its world and a whole lot more to do in said world. It's objectively better.

        I disagree, rdr is a waypoint game. Exploration isn't encouraged enough.

          What are you talking about? This has to be a problem with only (You). The world has tons of stuff in it and is constantly wanting you to explore it. Even just moving from one "Waypoint" to another to get a quest will have at least a couple of things each time to lure you off the road.

            Following waypoints and map markers isn't exploration. I'm not saying I never explored, there is definitely a few things to find, but it isn't the focus or design of the world.

              1/16th of the map in RDR2 is way more exciting than every single facet of the map in Elden Ring. That is, if you can even enjoy it without stuttering because developers cannot into DX12

                They did recently update RDR2 with performance improvements, not sure if DX12 is good on that though. I played through the entire game at low settings on 30fps and it still blew me the fuck away. I do feel that New Austin is cool but a little empty though.

              If the world was designed around waypoints then why did they also develop an entire world around them? They would have just made it a linear game when it's clearly not. Besides, how would you "encourage exploration" in ways that RDR2 didn't already do?

                Are you really arguing that a game being open world inherently means the game is suited to being open world?
                Regardless, that isn't the point I was making. A game can be open world and still be designed around following waypoints. Skyrim is the obvious example. I don't think there is much rockstar could've done to encourage more exploration. The setting of the wild west doesn't leave many options because the wilderness needs to be empty for it to fit the setting. As a start, remove waypoints and give people descriptions and land marks to guide them. You should be looking at the beautiful vistas and roaming the land, not staring at a minimap. The mission design doesn't really accommodate this though, you fail for going 20 feet off the designated path.

                I agree to an extant, what I really like in games is seeing things we'll never get again, or won't have in my lifetime. Rdr wilderness has an appeal in that everything is off trail and more wild than most places you can easily access irl. But I also like going through the old towns etc.
                I'd like to see rockstar explore other locations/times. Assassins creed does a good job of picking places, unfortunately everything else they do sucks.

        No bot, friend. I legitimately liked RDR more than RDR2. The only improvements were the graphics and score. Everything else was a step down. RDR had better controls, faster gameplay, Undead Nightmare, and the MC wasn't pointlessly woke for a cowboy at the time.

                To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to enjoy Red Dead Redemption 2. The story is really subtle, and without a solid grasp of Feminist Theory most of the missions will go over a typical gamer's head. There's also Arthur's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Kimberlé Crenshaw literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these cutscenes, to realise that they're not just slow- they say something deep about WHITE MEN. As a consequence people who dislike Red Dead Redemption 2 truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Arthur's existential catchphrase "Women voting? Sure, why not?," which itself is a cryptic reference to Simone de Beauvoir's epic The Second Sex. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Rockstar's genius pathos unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them.
                And yes, by the way, i DO have a Red Dead Redemption tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid

    It's about what you like in games. If you like movie games then RDR2 is for you, though the story cant stand up to actual westerns or even the first game. Elden Ring is better if you actually like playing games but the play itself is inferior to previous Souls games like Bloodborne and Sekiro. For me it's Elden Ring for obvious reasons but that's because I already live in a rural area so I cant be so easily wowed by nice realistic landscapes. Maybe RDR2 seems incredible to city kids but that's just a fault of perspective.

    It's amazing how the open world of rdr2 actually hurts the games story. The entire point of the game is the gang being on the run, laying low hopping place to place yet all that urgency is killed because the world is so detailed the player will most likely just fuck off. I remember when Jack got kidnapped I got sidetracked and spent about an in game week hunting/fishing.

    I don't knwo what people are talking about when they say RDR2 had a good open world, when people say "good open world" I think of fun exploration and cool stuff to do. RDR2's open world feels like a plastic shell, and everything you can do in it outside of hunting feels railroaded (aside from the legendaries, which are also railroaded). Rockstar doesn't know how to make anything emergent.

    My biggest issue with Elden Ring is that everything you do, everything involving exploration and fucking around, only has two goals: faring better with bosses/pvp and lore. It's basically a big dungeon crawler where you have the option to fuck around massive areas where you're most likely going to eat shit or find your next unique thing that makes it more engaging to fight some enemy. Landscapes are an extra thing that's cool to some people. It's not the same kind of game at all and it's hyper combat centric. RDR2 is a game where you're not explicitly looking around for bosses to kill and gear to upgrade so you get stronger, it's a much smaller part. It's a game with a lot more variety, it's a lot more cinematic as well. It's like comparing Daggerfall to Zelda, not to take away anything from either.

      There's no reason to explore in RDR any more than there is Elden, unless you want to. I wanted more guns and clothes. I don't consider riding my horse over to a woman who wants dinosaur bones for no reward to be gameplay.

      The hunting was easily the best part. I could have played an entire third person hunting game based on the RDR2 engine.

        Still, you get hunting as a whole mechanic and it's a mostly optional part of the game. It's not the only thing you do so you do it more efficiently after exploring.
