Like the title says, I'm excited for Red Dead Redemption 2's Online Mode. Why? For a couple of reasons that'll make me get rid of GTA Online from my collection. While yes, it could suck very much, I think that it'll be the perfect game to do western roleplays and to experience new Downloadable content that'll send Griefers back to the spawn of hell they were born from... well Unless they make primitive planes that'll shot dynamite which explodes to a size of a nuclear missile strike which prove R* only made that so people can buy more Shark Cards (or bonds, whatever it's call nowadays.) just because of the griefers.
1) No more Bomb-abusing mothertruckers
Honestly, EVERYONE met a Griefer in GTA Online one way or another and do everything they can to prevent people from getting money from jobs, supply runs and all of the above. Most because R* wanted to make GTA Online more fustrating and forcing people to buy Shark Cards so they could either get the money they lost from the griefers or to repair their vehicles which the griefers destroyed. I mean hell, I bet THAT'S the only reason why R* hasn't done jack crap to the system to make it more fair to newer players who's coming into GTA Online for the first time or starting over from scratch. *cough* Which is me, of course. *cough* I mean, like I said before, unless R* decides to put in primitive planes that drops dynamite explosions the size of Nuclear missiles, I think the griefers are going to have a hell of a time to play fair.
2) More unique ideas
Without the advanced technology that exists in the GTA World, R* will have to get real creative with RDR2 Online's DLCs. Of course, one dlc may be mostly new horse types but my hopes is they might add a new and improve CEO/MC thing with the ideas of Outlaw Gangs and Illegal, Underground Businesses. Having your own Outlaw Base to build and improve would be amazing and perhaps good for a roleplaying perspective. Maybe one idea for a DLC could be where your kidnap players and/or NPCs and can do torturous and/or psychopathic things to you such as the classic "tie your victim to train tracks" cliche while other people tries to come and save you and in the process, people might get money for saving a player or NPC. Another idea could be where you could claim a town by buying it out or by putting fear into the hearts of it's civilians. You could also change the rules and how it'll run to your liking. Say you want to be a very corrupt mayor that'll hang people for stealing candy from a general store, you can do that with this idea of a DLC. You can then also use that town to further your goals of gaining more profits by taking on jobs and claiming warehouses in other towns and cities to even further your goals, that would be pretty cool.
3) We could finally create our own cowboy/cowgirl.
I know this seems so stupid to put in but it makes a huge difference. I know I'm pointing out the obvious here but I'm talking to those who never played the online mode of the original game. Having the ability to create our own character in RDR2 would make a HUGE difference instead of forcing us to unlock the model we want to use in the game. I mean, let's be honest here. we all, at one time or another, were bored as cow poop. So what some of us do was we go into the character creator and create something funny or have fun with it. If you want to try to make John Marston in GTA V or if you want to recreate the real life version of Princess Robot Bubblegum, which in terms goes out and pretends to be the offensive character of PRB in GTA V.
Those three reasons, at least to me, makes RDR2's online mode seems interesting enough to at least try out. I just hope R* doesn't screw this up as much as GTA Online did because now, it's too much of a grind to do anything in the game and most of the time, the only way to get good at the game is to buy shark cards and they dang well know that.
