    First 2 hours are railroaded because they act as a tutorial. After you will arrive at the camp, the game becomes open and free-roam.

    What did you expect? This is a popamole game.

    Also, since when does Epic do refunds?

    I'd like to play this someday if a good difficulty mod comes out. I want to play a cowboy game like this, but it seems like I wouldn't like it much in its current state.

    This is a first-class storyfag/immersionfag game. Gameplayfags should go play DMC5 or Nintendo or something and stop bitching about RDR2.

    It is by far the most railroaded game in the history of open world games. It's amazing to what degree the Rockstar designers are clueless about how open world games work, or arrogant to where they feel like they can not just disregard what makes open world games work but actively break it (as in whenever you use emergent open world elements to get something done, they punish you for this with mission over screens, because you deviated 2 steps from their cinematic prescribed pathway). Truly one of the worst games I've ever played.

    Nobody is gonna argue that mission design of the main missions shouldn't have been more open. But the game consists of more than that, and it is not exactly impossible to simply play the way it is designed and therefore not run into these issues all that often. There is more to immersion than that.

    But yes, I agree its too strict mission parameters are the biggest (and only significant) flaw of RDR2.
    Perfectly. At least on my PC. No crashes, no bugs, stable 60fps.

    Yes! Dolphin and CEMU are working great, and there's also a switch emulator in development

    It becomes open world, but all the missions are linear as hell, and bogged down with super slow and "immersive" moments. The game excels more at "make your own fun" stuff like robbing people or whatever.

    They are definitely not the only significant flaw in this overrated game (boring storylines with equally dull characters and completely broken arcs and pacing come to mind, as does a relatively boring combat system made way too easy and pointless by bullet sponge health and things like dead-eye). But even if you ignore those, saying this is the only flaw misses a bigger point, and is equivalent to saying "Tasting like shit is the only flaw with shit as a major food group".

    It's not that the strict mission parameters, as you say, somehow make the overall game worse. It's that they literally go against the entire fundamental point of open world games. RDR2 is a schitzo game, trying at the same time to be an open world game with all these systems (animals, hunting, robberies, etc) and to also be an extremely linear Call of Duty type game when it comes to its actual missions. Imagine playing Call of Duty set in GTA, and you will understand why this just doesn't work.

    m8 why are you pointing this out as a flaw when you're the same autist that proved you didn't understand or pay attention to any of the characters?

    GTA has suffered from this too, though. More often than not, the more elaborate missions are linear obstacle courses where you hit one checkpoint after another. It's been a glaring flaw in the series since the GTA3 days, although probably not quite as bad as RDR2 from what I'm reading.

    Thank you, captain obvious, for repeating the obvious;

    Doesn't work for you. Works perfectly fine for many others, me included.

    finished tutorial chapter 1. Now im hunting game around camp in chapter 2.

    This console UI is annoying. Im not sure I can call it UI even, finding anything is a chore. Got no idea how to craft and do most of the things, im supposed to adjust my outfit(its too hot) but I got no idea how, there appears to be no proper inventory?

    Look around the camp, there is a trunk somewhere near your bed. That's your wardrobe. People used to keep their clothes in trunks.

    BTW, regarding the above discussion... people like to say they want realism, but they don't really want realism. You want realism in a western game - stop shaving and bathing for days, and install one of those sex toys in front of your PC so that while you are riding in the game you are riding in real life. Let your butt actuallty get sore from the saddle.

    Also, do you want realistic aiming and shooting too? Good luck, if someone implements controls where your wrist is controlled separately from your elbow and shoulder you wouldn't hit anything.

    RDR2 is just what it aims to be - a perfect "western feelz" game, and if you ditch the main story - a murderhobo simulator of unsurpassed detail and visual quality.

    Behind Van Der Linde's tent, there is an open ledger and a wooden box. That's where you go to donate. Generally, you have to keep your eyes peeled in this game, and don't be afraid to go by intuition.

    Food, skins and animal parts should go to the fat guy with the top hat, the cook, whatever his name was. If you go to his stall, he will automatically show up there.
