Boring combat, lame plot, empty world. Meh.
Lol this is either a joke or an unpopular opinion. But we're all entitled to one.

Otherwise I'll totally grab this game on steam even if it means my PC will explode.

Actually it's by far my most favourite world design, for me the game world is PURE ART, also the game has a HUGE amount of interaction and secrets to be uncovered and the gun shooting is actually pretty damn good for the type of game, it's not a simulator, but has a nice butter smooth gameplay...

The story is also pretty damn deep. I don't even like Western type of things, but RDR 1 and RDR2 really nailed it and I totally loved them...

The one time where the Houser brothers' douchebaggery actually benefitted the greater good of all.

Don't waste your time explaining it to him, he didn't even play the game and he is talking shit about it since RDR1 which he didn't play too.

I know it's a controversial opinion but outside the characters, story and world-design I was really disappointed in this game. The controls were dreadfully clunky and unresponsive and the lack of freedom in missions really held the game back for me.

This video goes over most of the problems I had with the game.

My theory on the one month exclusivity as opposed to one year comes from BL3's supposedly meh PC sales based on Take Two's stock dip.

Also, while Epic's "guaranteed sales" money is a thing, you can't gouge people for microtransactions if nobody actually plays the game. I'm fairly certain this is the main reason why the exclusivity period is small.

RDR2 is nothing like the RDR1, Multiplayer is a mess, controls are indeed way to clunky to allow for "old west quickdraw" gameplay.

GTA 5 has the same amount of "freedom" in missions as RDR2 tbh, but both "freedom in missions" are dwarfed by the freedom in mission in earlier Rockstar titles like the 3D GTA's where you could travel to the other side of the map when being on OM (On Mission) without causing a mission failure state, whilst a bit of side tracking in OM on GTA 5 and RDR2 results in mission failure.

I've crossed my fingers for this. Usually my switch and PC are enough, but I miss out on a few big titles. (Kingdom Hearts 3 PC port when?)

Lmfao that was funny!

My old shitty GTX1080Ti is afraid for tessellated horse dicks and balls but it must run those details on 60/1440p.
