Should have just been a movie, being a video game makes it more boring because I dont have enough agency to have fun even though I have s fuck ton of options and the story is the only thing engaging about it. Turn it into a tv series and it'd be kino

go away and stay gone gay
RDR is a Ganker honorary newfag
I spent just as much time hunting and exploring as I did with story missions
>it's too long as a game
>but if it was a show that I could watch in the background while I play CoD then it would be sick
I didnt say it was "too long," I said I'm more invested in its story than playing its world. It's somehow both free and restrictive. So much shit to do but little incentive to actually do them. Hunting is fine but that 50 second animation scene feels like torture.
I going to sound like your mom but I think you need to take a long break from all types of screens
Go watch 1883 its literally the same story.
It is a TV show retard. Every game is in 2023. Just open youtube and search "[name of game] long play."
I've always found it wierd...the spectrum between book to tv/film to videogame. When you lay in bed without looking at your TV, its kindof like an audiobook, and some games are nothing like TV, some of them are practically TV shows with a small interactive section, and theres spectrum in between. Tetris and 1984 are completely different, but yet if you take a small step and again and again you go from one to the other.
> still foaming at the mouth four entire whole years later
You'll never create something as interesting or engaging as Red Dead. Stay assblasted and go back to Wrong board
have a nice day, gay shill
Whining and cursing like an outed gay isnt going to change anything. He's right, your bitterness is out of jealousy and contrarianism.
shut up retard it’s a fucking video game for man children
>s-shut up retard
You're outed, gay. Your reasoning for hating the game is shallow as piss, you give no real example of why you hate it only hating it because you hate people enjoying it. You discredit it and people who like it by insulting because you cant actually muster a real reason for why it sucks do you fall back on buzzwords you spit out on Ganker with the other sub-IQ contrarians hating games and people more successful and complete than you'll ever be.
you’re screeching you stupid reddit fag
rdr2 is literally a baby toy for retards
it’s not historically accurate nor does it have good gameplay or missions
you’re a raging liberal dipshit crying about his baby toy
imagine being you there’s no way you’re white
Historical accuracy is such a nerd thing to care about. Dutch is an an-prim return to nature John Zerzan type who would hate slavery and think voting is a meme, so why not let women do it.
>you’re screeching you stupid reddit fag
Every post you make is literally proving me right, gay kek
Imagine being called out and then just doubling down on everything I said you'd do.
cringe nerd likes shitty games for redditors
Keep proving me right, fag. While I kick back and enjoy my Sunday while you'll no doubt keep maulding, I'll bet you think back to this thread days or weeks from now seething that I beaten you
holy shit please have a nice day irl
For me it's the opposite. I never finished the story because the characters and their modern globohomo values made me roll my eyes constantly. Exploring the world, hunting and feeding morons to alligators is pretty comfy though.
>For me it's the opposite. I never finished the story because the characters and their modern globohomo values made me roll my eyes constantly. Exploring the world, hunting and feeding morons to alligators is pretty comfy though.
Same. Put like 200 hours in because the exploration, collecting, and shooting stuff was fun. Thought the characters were annoying and the story generic.
People who play video games have low standards of quality for this sort of thing

RDR2 is the most impressive video game I've ever played. Haven't experienced that level of absolute amazement at what was accomplished in a game since the jump to 3D back in the 90's. Genuinely convinced the only people who dislike it are zoomers with tiktok brain rot.
Visuals and storytelling are good. The story missions are just hide behind cover and shoot. The absolute freedom of the openworld vs the restriction of the progression story missions is truly what makes this game a 8/10
Also the "gameplay" of walking while a cutscene is happening
The story is great till we get that detour to Not Cuba, where we spend a fuck ton of time at a location we can't even go back to and barely even explore. It's like they wanted to have a Mexico segment like in the first game but at least i can go back to Mexico. Why the fuck would they create an entire section of the game only not let us explore it?
also one of my major gripes with the game.
also the general ludonarrative dissonance, the entire gang are psychopaths but I'm meant to feel bad because we blackmail as well?
We're supposedly broke and desperate but you can make more money solo in two in game days than the entire gang put together over the entire game?
The bounty hunters who get on your ass is the dullest system as well, just a random mob that doesn't get difficult to deal with at any time, and is essentially just a loot delivery service.
Would have been nice if there was an actual element in the game that would dissuade you from just blasting everything that moves.
There's some shit leftover in the game files iirc that suggests returning to Guarma was intended for the epilogue. Same with Mexico, it's fully mapped and in the game, and used to be accessible with exploits until they patched it. I think they were intending to make a RDR1 remaster or some kind of DLC and wanted to keep the option open, then they just realised they can flog GTA5 shark cards to whales and make more money for less work.
>fuck ton of time
4 hours bro, 5 missions
they needed a "workers right" section to satisfy their garden gnome ESG overlord
fucking retarded story telling, muh police bad, muh capitalist bad, muh nobel savage slaves
entirely pointless, advanced narrative zero, totally destroyed the benefit of the massive bank heist
the whole game's narrative is so fucking stupid
JUST STEAL THE STORY FROM WESTERNS
it worked in RDR why leave that model?
This. I'm so fucking glad that I'm one of the people that RDR2 "clicked" with. The people who can't understand its appeal are missing out on one of the most impressive technical achievements in entertainment history.
i'm 30 and i just found it boring. i guess if you're really into western settings but the gameplay is very boring.
Rockstar came full circle really. Playing Vice City it was like the missions acted as a necessary evil to get more land to explore and drive around listening to 80s music in. RDR2 is very fun to play in free roam, but the missions mostly suck. It's weird to because even the dislogue is better outside of cutscenes.
you think this because you're a dipshit. I'd rather destroy my eyes playing New Vegas 24/7 than RDR2 for a day
One night I took mushrooms and was drinking and was playing this game and it was blowing my mind every single second. Especially when I was in the camp and just talking to each character. They each have their own personality and life in the game. Fucking mind blowing
stop baiting me
woah a frogposter likes shitty nu rockstar games and is proud of eating shit
>RDR2 is the most impressive video game I've ever played.
it wasn't even as good as RDR1
The world is better, there's more to do, there's more secrets and easter eggs to find, collectables, clothes, towns, guns, horses. Everything is better in 2 except the story and narrative.
>there's more secrets and easter eggs to find
no there's not
oh man cigarette cards
no one spends any time in towns anon
bout the same number of guns
and you could lose 10 guns without even noticing
all basically the same
>there's more secrets and easter eggs to find
>no there's not
HAHAHAHAHA opinion discarded. You fucking monkey, you can't be this stupid. There's WAY more easter eggs in 2, there's shit all over the map.
Yeah, and weapons, clothes, masks, guns, maps that lead to treasures.
People unlike you like to chill in the towns, and if towns aren't important to you compared to the first game then the world alone in 2 shits on the first game.
>HAHAHAHAHA opinion discarded. You fucking monkey, you can't be this stupid. There's WAY more easter eggs in 2, there's shit all over the map.
there's WAY less random interactions
there's more rodents and birds to hunt (which is incredibly annoying)
there's like 2 treasures
>chill in the towns,
wtf kind of weirdo wants to hang out with NPCs in a town?
NTA, but me. On a low honor run it's great to take a couple shots of whiskey at the bar, have an NPC babble in your ear, antagonize them, start a barfight and a shootout. You miss stuff if you don't there too like a side mission where you can help a whore hide dead bodies.
unrelated but the quest where you're getting shit faced with Lenny is probably the most realistic depiction of a drunken night out in the history of film, tv, or video games.
Not him and also unrelated but have you played kingdom come? There is a pretty fun drunken night out mission in that too which includes the next morning. I love this drinking song too
no but heard great things about it
its on my list
I stopped playing games for like 10 years and just got back to playing what I missed (not much).
It's not for everyone but I had a really good time with it. It's pretty linear just like rdr2 but the world was fun for me. The combat is a little clunky but I got the hang of it from training a lot but even with good gear you have to bring your A game against a group of peasants with sticks because they'll fuck you up. Killing a group of give bandits is pretty satisfying.
>You miss stuff if you don't there too like a side mission where you can help a whore hide dead bodies.
How do I find this one?
And there's way more horses, different colors of each breed of horse too. And more guns by far. It's like you just don't remember playing RDR2 and just want to act fucking dumb.
>And there's way more horses, different colors of each breed of horse too.
difference without a distinction
100 different shades of horses that aren't different isn't cool
>It's like you just don't remember playing RDR2
I'm playing it now
>The world is better
it does look spectacular I won't take that away from them
This dude doesn't even know how to play a video game. Sad.
The first game has an eerie vibe it didn't before. No travel companions or really any NPCs to interact with outside of a mission, and before that just came off as a technical limitation but now it's because everyone John ever knew is dead.
1866 mod for OG Mount & Blade > Gun > dogshit > RDR
Yeah Red Dead Revolver was pretty shit
shame it's unfinished
fuck gabrilduro btw
All Rockstar games written by Houser are just a mish mash of movies. You're better off just watching those movies.
I thought this too but nothing is really like GTA IV. Has some Sopranos influences in the back half of the game, and it's a bit like Brother 2 in concept, but way bigger in scope. I replayed it recently and the dialogue feels like the Housers had a ghost writer. Usually everything is sarcastic to the point of meaningless but in IV you'll be going to a strip club with Packie and he's in the passenger seat in tears because his father raped him and his brothers. They buried so much essential dialogue, some of the best voice acting in a video game in little side activities nobody but total autistics like me would do. Another one is Niko almost wanting to pull over and shoot his date, a trustfund girl he meets on a Craigslist parody, who goes on an unhinged rant about how her mother deserves to die of abdominal cancer. You can also go to an internet cafe and their parody of 2000s websites are so good, like they their own MDE on board or something.
gtaiv is a great game. gtav was so forgettable and a step down but keeps selling because braindead idiots spend so much in online. the fact that rockstar would rather re release v for the 20th time over giving rdr2 a current gen patch says a lot.
I played the story mode once just to put a bullet in Trevor. The world just felt so soulless in GTA V. I know they had to stretch the capabilites of the tech available at the time, but you could really tell. Driving down the road anywhere on the map and hearing the same Mexican pedestrian scream "fuck me in the ass" got on my last nerve. IV spoiled me by having very unique peds leaning against payphones speaking rapid fire Ukranian. Idiots mostly want to use a jetpack and slap each other with dildos online, which is why both Saints Row and GTA peaked in 2008.
Yeah, but all that stuff works better as a video game than a movie or show. I like the games a lot, but they just wouldn't work as good as movies.
yeah GTA IV was peak rockstar.
>All Rockstar games written by Houser are just a mish mash of movies.
that's actually fine
they didn't do that with RDR2 however.
This. This right here is why I couldn’t play it for more than the first couple chapters. They try to do for “realism” yet in real life horses aren’t fucking retarded and tripping up and doing front flips when confronted with a tiny curb.
Tbf, a lot of the shit they did was on literal motion tracking suits on real horses, you can't exactly get away with throwing live horses of cliffs and punching them and shit.
Also, don't underestimate how dumb horses are and how easily they can fuck themselves up, if they break their front legs they basically can never recover from that and have to be put down.
this shit has the clunkiest animations i've ever seen
the animations are great chud
the animations themselves would be fine if it didn't feel like controlling a washing machine
Why do you always hit people with an axe sideways in that game? Wouldn't planting it right down into someone's skull be more effective and have more energy behind it because it takes advantage of gravity?
kind of fell apart after season 4
It would have been a shit movie. The story isn’t actually good it’s just masked by the retardedly long time it takes to beat the game and the fact that gamers haven’t got the slightest clue about what makes a good story.
Not bad but Karl Urban is too old for John
John and Arthur are wrong
Sadie was an awful character
It wouldve been bad as a movie too
the story was ok at its core or at least I thought so until I got to the end which sucked
I like the low honor endings. Arthur as this diseased scumbag murderer doubling down on his worst qualities to the point the reformed preacher in the camp is telling him it's too late to give a shit about redemption now. Do all the bandit side missions when he gets sick, don't help anyone out of the goodness of your heart. Come across a guy stuck in a bear trap, watch him suffer, give him a whiskey and shoot him before he can even put it to his lips. Treat everybody like shit in camp, barely contribute, get drunk all the time, in towns too. None of this happy deer dream bullshit.
fact is, a realistic Arthur character would've killed Micah right from the first mission where you free him and he causes a massacre. I tried to do that and was reminded it's not a RPG.
it’s more on rails than a call of duty campaign played on wii
and the politics are more anachronistic than an episode of drunk history
the story is absolutely fucking stupid
the game itself is beautiful and awesome, theres no way in hell even a mean Arthur would bust Micah out of jail or even let him live after busting him out.
Even an evil Arthur would be following a fucking retard like Dutch.
Why? Their reciprocated hostility is basically cartoonish, it's not like Micah murdered Arthur's family or something, they were at best in disagreement in some matters, that's it.
>it’s not historically accurate
It actually is, bar some weapons (which were added post release).
The story is really good imo, just the retarded gunfights where you're outnumbered by 100:1 and win every time is what's immersion breaking imo.
Arthur was literally raised by Dutch, he's his father figure and a charismatic cult leader type, he'd absolutely do something retarded like free Micah cuz Dutch said to. Dutch slowly losing his mind was kino and very well done and subtle.
I think a difficulty setting would really add something to it. It's funny, the combat is a lot like Max Payne 3, and that had Hardcore New York Minute.
the gunplay is shitty gta v copy
max payne 3 feels so much better it’s not even remotely close
gta v has weapons with no recoil, pedestrians dying from a single pistol shot in their leg, enemies barely reacting when attacked, shotguns being useless at anything but 3 feet distance, the variety is non-existent and every gun is basically the same thing but with a different, low resolution model
weapons in RDR2 feel powerful, they can dismember, disarm, knock over, immobilize, each category having several choices to choose from, all feel different from each other
max payne 3 is linear dogshit piece of trash that would be 30 minutes long if it wasn't for unskippable cutscenes and walking sections
no they can't wtf are you talking about?
> all feel different from each other
no they don't.
you silly shitposter
i’m not talking about mp3 as a game just the gunplay
rdr2 has that shitty fake weight feeling they have in gta v for le realism
god the game is fucking cringe and i hate you for sucking it’s cock like you are
fucking redditor, i hate you
yeah it's fake because it's a game you dumbfounded nutfucker
what a horrible response you gay have a nice day
you know what else is horrible? max payne 3
i’d rather be forced to play it for eternity than rdr2 zzzzzzzzzz
Maybe I'm remembering it wrong, playing Max Payne 3 now and was just killing guys with a golden revolver. I thought RDR2 was very satisfying if you didn't just run around like a retard with an overpowered rifle, it's a sidearm game.
uhh Ganker is a mount and blade board take this bethesda knock off crap back to Ganker
What's with RDR protagonists stuck with the worst women possible.
I like games where the story is created by the player, and you use your imagination instead of voice acted scripted cut scenes.
For that reason I probably wouldnt like rdr2. If it was any good at that then this thread would be full of green text stories about the game. But instead its just anons arguing about named chars ive never heard of and cant imagine, and their actions and motivations etc
best games are undoubtedly ones that have fun game mechanics and build on those, rather than force feed some third rate story down your throat and allow you to sometimes point and click.
RDR2 is basically just a pigeon shoot on horseback.
I like games about gay sex. If this game was any good, it would have greentexts full of stories from vulnerable guys who need to be held by big strong arms who love to lather sack in the wild.
>KILL PEOPLE SO THE INDIANS CAN GET THE VACINE FROM THE GOVERNMENT
>WACH KKK BURN REPEATEDLY
>NO YOU CANT KILL INDIANS
what a fucking pozzed game
having to explore and do a bunch of side quests all over the map before you advance the story does completely fuck up the pacing and just zooming through main story makes you think you missed a ton of content.
Finding people on the side of the road and hearing their sad tales or having out with friends at camp doesn’t translate as well on screen than it does in game. I like little things like that in games but it doesn’t work as well on a show unless the writing and acting is really good. Otherwise it can come off as boring. It feels less boring in a game to me
I wish the map was smaller or the horses were faster
I went exploring around the map, realized how fucking far the camp is and then haven't played the game in 3 months because I didnt want to go all the way back
they made shooting feel really good, the way people get hurt and fall over, the smoke from the bullets, the sound of the gun all feel very good
you know fast travel exists
does it? I thought you could only fast travel from camp?
you can make a camp out in the wilderness from the item menu, the only prerequisites are, i believe, having a horse on you and acquiring that map upgrade in camp
this allows you to fast travel
how do you fast travel from a camp you make? there's no map
i couldn't find a hi res pic but in the lower right corner there should be a "use fast travel" option
you can travel from the permanent camp using the map put up on your wagon
you're denying reality, partner
its unlocked after an update
I pirated it
can't you update it
There's stagecoaches and/or trains in each town that will fast travel you where you need to get
RDR2 was wasted potential tbh
>RDR2 was wasted potential tbh
could have been incredibly epic
had a massive library of westerns to steal for quest stories
ended up being globohomo conditioning
the quest where you have to steal vaccines for ALREADY SICK Indians is fucking insane
>the government is obligated to give stuff to the indians goy
>the government withholding things the indians CANNOT CREATE BY THEMSELVES is so evil its murder worthy
>vaccines are healthcare
>vaccines treat already sick populations
>had a massive library of westerns to steal for quest stories
Yeah the main quest just became a chore after the first few missions. The whole Rockstar shtick go to A and do B and press X tis so dull
>the quest where you have to steal vaccines for ALREADY SICK Indians is fucking insane
LMAO I remember and also that IR couple
Even if they wanted to show muh poor Indians and muh slaves there was certainly a better way.
Funny that a guy like Arthur who has no problem killing, raiding and beating tf outta people for a few dollar gives a shit about the heckin minorities
the story is crap.
what is good about the game is ditching everyone immediately and wandering the map and larping
An incredibly tedious game that I had to force myself to play through. Bad combat, boring missions, stupid characters, dull world, pretentious, self important, poorly paced, predictable.
You realize dutch is a fraud in the first mission of the game, then you spend the next 20 hours of story going "ooh, Dutch might not be all that great." Yeah we fucking know, you made it obvious. Combat that boils down to "how many more generic soldiers can you kill this time before you drink a bullet time power up? No the enemies don't behave any differently than the soldiers you fought at he beginning. Shut up, it IS fun."
Nothing interesting about it at all, just incredibly generic.
Dutch is not a fraud, it's thanks to him that the entire group manages to evade the law for 90% of the game. He's shown as capable until chapter 4 happens and he suffers severe brain damage.
Dutch is very much a fraud, and the head trauma wasn't the start of it. We know dutch went off the handle and ruined the score in Blackwater by killing a random civilian before the game even starts. Then Dutch continually uses his glamour to keep the group together while he continuously improvises and vamps for a way out of their impending doom, but everyone feels the walls moving in, even Arthur, who is the number 1 victim of Dutchs grooming. As Dutch looses more and more of his crew he becomes more desperate and aggressive, sensing his grip on his cult is slipping. He gets reckless and his plans become harebrained dead ends. planning a trip to Tahiti? Please, no one believes that would ever happen. Everyone figures this out eventually and the band falls apart. Arthur feels used and decieved, and spend the last days of his life wallowing in the embarrassment of realizing he'd been a patsy his entire life to Dutch, a classic film flam man who used the undefinable bauble of 'freedom' to control and profit off a bunch of low intelligence criminals.
I'm glad I played it, I didn't for a long time, and now I know to avoid the next GTA
nu Rockstar is ruined
Just started playing, are you able to romance the camp girls, or at least fuck the chubby blonde whore in your camp who gets smacked in the mouth in the hotel room after trying to rob the john in early chapter 2?
>are you able to romance the camp girls
> or at least fuck the chubby blonde whore in your camp who gets smacked in the mouth in the hotel room after trying to rob the john in early chapter 2?
you can't even fuck the girls you pay to wash you in the baths
Arthur might as well not have a penis
Have Rockstar gone all woketard conservative gays all of a sudden??

the historic gas lighting is not just PC but abjectly evil
even if you regard that kind of thing as bad, pretending it didn't happen in the wild west is no way to dissuade it
he dies in the game and then you have to play as his son and get revenge
All western AAA games since 2007 (Uncharted) should just be TV shows.
Naughty Dog's boss finally dropped the pretense recently and announced "going forward we aren't making video games anymore, we're going to make """interactive tv"""
