Where are the hype?

Recommended Posts

PJULLE_DK

Its almost 1 year since RDR2 was announced yet we only have 116 threads on this forum where have the hype gone. I've Remember before Gta v came out this forum was full of people and around 100 new threads everyday, yes many if them was sh*t posts but i miss that time.

 

So where is the hype gone?

sh*t

maybe people evolved? maybe they've finally discovered that over 99% of all conversations are futile?

 

it's the internet. we talk sh*t because we know talking has no value. soon we'll just shut up. and then we can start over.

Christ, that's some awful nilhism^

 

I think most are anticipating a micro-transaction dystopia with less focus on a fleshed out single player narrative and can't afford to get too passionate. This is also a GTA Forum, where the majority are here for talk on Rockstar's flagship series - Grand Theft Auto.

1. This is mainly a Grand Theft Auto forum, so Red Dead will receive much less hype compared to a GTA game.

2. There was more hype during the initial announcement of the game and now there's nothing to talk about. Wait until a trailer and previews.

3. The hype has been mainly contained in one 'General Chat' topic and the policy against these '100 threads/day' are harsh.

4. The game is definitely receiving more hype in other places. It was trending on Twitter when R* posted the recent date announcement. People are now more active on Twitter and social media outlets compared to 5 years ago. Forums are generally on decline and even r/RedDeadRedemption on Reddit has received more posts regarding the new announcement.

5. Oh wait, Grand Theft Auto is and will still be more popular than a Western-themed game called Red Dead Redemption, whether on this forum or anywhere else.

Interesting hypothesis but sadly it couldn't be further from the truth.

 

The vast majority of people are still just as primitive as our forefathers who lived 10.000 years ago.

Sure, the cultures have somewhat changed and they now have digitized screens in front of their eyes but evolving away from futile discussions is something that most of humanity is simply incapable of. Most are still too busy defending their arbitrary teams.

There's plenty of hype. It's just contained in two succinct threads now instead of a hundred or so. Much better this way too.

I'm very hyped for it but I'm not gonna make threads about it as pretty much nothing has been revealed so there's not much to discuss tbh.
