Unpopular Opinions about RDR2

Yeah, in no way the game is short. Even if you rush through it, it'd take you about a month to actually complete it, and I'm talking about the initial story instead of the Epilogue.

I meant relatively not precisely. Of course they did not.

 

No need to get snarkey btw.

 

The money system is relatively balanced.

 

I would suggest people who don't like a balanced monetary system go and play WoW, where you can pay to win. And leave behind any notion of fairness.

 

You actually went and looked up how much a German Luger costed though one has to admire people with Apsergers.

 

And yes I did spell that wrong deliberately I bet rightnoe you are thinking about correcting my grammer and spelling.

 

You are aren't you the first thinkg you thought about was not what ayone said, you just are really annoyoied rig now about the way they said it.

 

context is important if you read what I said you would not have even made that comment.

 

"I know full well it did not and does not cost that much for half the things in game."

 

Me at the start of the post.

 

Relatively yes?

 

We can at least presume despite your auristic nature you get the idea of relatively speaking? Or should we just assume you take everything literally?

 

I still want Mariah Carey for Christmas though. ;)

 

I was of course assuming people had read my previous comments about the relative nature of wealth and I sincerely apologise if anyone is offended by the term relatively expensive. Just saying. And I know some of my comments were made in other threads <insert disclaimer here>

 

Mjolnïr always returned to the hand that sent it that was as much Thor's curse as his prize... hel he could barely lift it let alone wield it. ;)

 

 

 

I don't think you understand any legit criticism of the games joke of an economy. If you complete a few treasure hunts, or rob at least 3 trains you're going to have enough money buy basically anything you want; and that's a very limited thing to buy. The things to buy are very limited, and the shoehorned story only compliments that. "You don't have time to buy houses and property, you have to escape the law!" "You don't have time to do the fully developed side activities and buy future online only products in single player, because you have to follow the very strict and rewritten story we designed so that you'll be forced to play multi-player for fun outlaw free roam activities and to actually buy cool stuff "

 

 

 

One other complaint I have to add, what the hell was the point of adding cigarettes or cigars in the game when you take literally a couple puffs off it and throw it away. GTA online had the option to continue smoking it, was that really too complicated by Rockstar India to script in or were they just lazy/inconsiderate?

Save all you can for post epilogue play.

During the story I just spend every penny I get as soon as I get it so Arthur is always broke.

Don't do treasure maps or rob trains during the story and spend all your cash. 

You can sit at the store and spend all your cash on cigarettes and beer if you have to.

Customize all weapons completely, etc..

Bottom line stay broke as much as possible.

Never pay off a bounty you get during story missions and never head back west.

Leave as much as you can for post epilogue play.

Uncle irritates me in camp to the point I want to beat him to a pulp. Lazy drunk old fool. I now antagonize him constantly.

I didn’t care that much about Sean, probably because he’s not involved in many missions and is the very first member of the gang to die after the Colter chapter. I understand why people like him, they either find his archetype appealing or are Irish like him, but he is not that fleshed-out to be regarded amongst the best, which is disappointing.

Micah Bell is awesome. shootout missions with him were so much fun. I know a lot of people hate him because of the ending but Im not somebody who connects emotionally to video game characters so I didnt really feel anything in the end. I was pissed off that my character is sick and dying. I like the game a lot but I would have liked it much more if Arthur died because he got shot or fell off a mountain or something. anything but being sick and weak. f*ck that.

Everyone is sensitive in this game.

 

Ride past someone camping minding your own business and you're told you're not supposed to be there, even if you're outside their camp. Then they start shooting and you get bad honour for defending yourself by killing them.

 

For an outlaw, John whines like a 16 year old teenage girl if Arthur antagonizes him.

I hated how scripted some of the gameplay was. Like the game slows my movements while at camp or when trying to do time-based gold requirements, slows my movements then. What was C* thinking?

No-one is particularly rounded as characters, in the sense that you don't get comprehensive backstory, but if you hang around camp enough and listen or interact with the gang you really get a feeling for many of these people. I think that's where I got my feeling for some of the gang, rather than story missions.

 

There are way too many characters but it provides more variety as a result. I would have cut out Token Tilly, Swanson and possibly Lenny too. Don't think they added anything to the gang or game(aside from probably my favourite mission in the game - A quiet time).

I love the Tall Trees area but hate how there seems to be an unlimited amount of encounters with the Skinner bros. Sometime I just want to trot through the forest in peace without being ambushed.

I dislike how John conveniently runs into Uncle in Blackwater during the epilogue. Rockstar couldn’t be bothered to write a more satisfying and plausible explanation to how John gets saddled with babysitting his useless old ass?

He didn't have to be a member of the VDL gang that's for sure. He contributed nothing and the lumbago joke got old fast lol.

What’s even more bizarre is that John, who is attempting to escape his former life by settling down with his wife and son, allows a useless old coot from his former life to also settle down with him, his wife, and son. The logic doesn’t quite add up.

Legend of the East Outfit is very underwhelming. but I don't know if that's an unpopular opinion. But It's all I really have.

I think you guys are off on this... I see uncle as one of the best characters in game. 

RDR3 if it ever comes out and assuming it's a prequel to RDR2, might just have uncle as a young bad ass.

He’s not a bad character per se, it’s just that R* did a piss poor job of reuniting him and John in the epilogue.


Also, I may be inclined to agree with you if by “badass” you mean alcoholic petty thief and hanger-on.

He's also a pretty good shot for a drunken ass old hobo

To be fair, Uncle is the one who tells john to build a ranch. So I can see John letting uncle stay at his ranch as a gratitude

Granted, but given that John was trying to severe his ties from the gang by 1907 (and that he had a wife and son to care for), it really doesn’t make all that much sense for him to invite Uncle to stay at the ranch. If John was truly grateful for whatever Uncle contributed to Beecher’s Hope, then maybe he could’ve given him some of the money that he collected at the end of American Venom and sent Uncle on his merry way.

I wish all game could be like chapter 1-3 and maybe some parts of 4. Chapter 5 and 6 sucks ass and the two epilogue chapters are way better than chapter 5 and 6. 
 

Maybe I have already said all of this, I do not remember anymore.

Chapter 6 is my least favourite in terms of missions design, It's just shootout after shootout even though the dialogue and cut scenes are good. Epilogue part 2 is definitely in my top 3.

I don't like the topic of Arthur's disease


Arthur does not need to be sick to realize that Dutch was going crazy.


It also bothers me because Charles, Sadie and the other survivors were never white doves, only Arthur received the punishment, it doesn't seem fair.
