Haven't bought a day one release in two or three years. In fact I allow myself a budget of 100 a year for games, but I've only spent 20 odd quid this year (I get Fifa the April after it's released, on EA access, along with all their other bobbins, for that amount.)

However, this and Sea of Thieves will be day one purchases next year; bring on the spring!
I can't wait to play it, but I'm only up to about 2013 in my games list so I'm going to have to.

It helps to be a few years behind.

It really does, Heb, it's cheaper and so much stuff is released with bugs these days, that then needs patching, it makes deferred gratification so much more sensible.

That being said, I've watched loads of SoT on youtube and it just looks like so much daft fun, whilst rdr was my favourite game; so i'm back to being a day one numpty for these.

I loved RDR. I can see why you're going all in. It's not just cost for me, it's just that I stopped playing for a few years and I don't want to start playing 2017 games as I'll then be disappointed to go back to older ones which right now I'm loving!

I'm about to start Far Cry 3

I also like it that when I play all DLC and patches are already out so feels like I get the best version of a game.

I'm about a year or two behind now due to backlog haha. Almost finished all the DLC for the witcher. Then I can move onto either Far Cry Primal, Call of Duty Infinite warfare or dishonoured 2.

Dear All,

We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26th 2018. We apologize to everyone disappointed by this delay. While we had hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and hope that when you get to play the game, you will agree the wait will have been worth it. In the meantime, please check out these screenshots from the game. We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks.

With thanks,
Rockstar Games

Red Dead Revolver is the first one. Red Dead Redemption is kind of the second game (even if the first one is very different).

How anyone can find RDR boring is beyond me. It was one of the best games i've ever played. Excellent gameplay, superb story, interesting protagonist, superb score.

I'm so excited for the next one.

Riding the horse from place to place picking weeds or plants in middle of the desert was just no fun

You can pretty much say the same thing about GTA. It's a niche game that does the story very well, invests you in the characters and had good game play (at that time).

You can describe offline sports games the way you just described RDR. Easy to highlight the negatives or positives to spin your opinion.

Pretty much every open world game runs the risk of the problems that Galo highlights. I found RDR unique to start with, but quite tedious (in an AC1 level of tedious) in pretty short order.

There a hint of hyperbole is Galo's post though.

-Having to watch the same animation when skinning animals - with a few exceptions, skinning animals wasn't a requirement.
-Trying to shoot backwards whilst steering a horse. - yeah, i'll give you that
-New mission - Cutscene, ride from point A to point B, cut scene, shootout, mission complete, pick up ammo, ride back to point A for another mission. - that's action games in general really. It's what they do outside of these parameters that counts and the imagery, storyline, score and characters that tie it al together.
-Die mid mission and spend 20 mins to get back to the same point. - hyperbole much. Did you walk between spawn and mission points???
-Having to find a bed somewhere to save your game - again, not ideal. But you're never far from a town or camp
-Whistle and then have to wait 15 seconds for your horse to turn up - if it took 15 seconds, I think your game was broken!

At the end of the day, my enjoyment of a game depends on how it makes you feel. This was a game full of joy, humour, edge-of-your-seat intensity and genuine sadness at points. If RDR2 comes even slightly close, i'll be very happy.
