That's pretty much what I do in GTA 5. I did a fair amount of it in RDR too--I think I must have spent most of my time murdering that racist poker player/storekeeper, not doing quests.

The online component is a little thin on content, but I kinda dig it.  If you just liked dicking around in the open world, that's pretty much what it is.

Also, the .22 Varmint Rifle is a goddamned murder machne since you still one shot with headshots using it.

Did you just kick a frog?

But anyhoo, got this for Christmas so I guess I'll be joining you in frog-kicking pretty soon. Soons I finish off Spider-man first that is.

Kicked a toad, and he croaked. Hopefully you watched the rest of the videos.

I'm a bit bored with RDR2, but my current interest is high in creating a "Master Hunter" YouTube playlist of kicking and stomping prey in various games. It's not funny in No Man's Sky (also it's a punch, not a kick) so I probably won't post one of those. Then again, that time I accidentally punched a horse in RDR2 was pretty funny.

Late to the party, but I started playing this.  The needless complexity in the UI and controls is almost enough for me to not want to play this.

I have only made it so far as to take up the first actual mission, a trip into Valentine.

Sorta accidentally robbed a satchel on a horse.  Was just thinking I would inspect it, but it just goes straight to stealing, and I get reported.  Lawman walks up and tells me to get the fuck outta Dodge.  So I get off of his radar.  Fine, makes sense.  Mission I was about to continue is now locked entirely for an unknown amount of time, despite walking out of the zone and letting some time pass.  Er, fair enough, kinda?  Walk around town, can't do shit.  Don't even have a horse to ride back and take another mission.  Put down the control, go take a piss or something.  I come back and pick the controller off of the couch, and somehow manage to lightly push the R2 button.....aaaaaaaand instantly gutshot some poor bastard by mistake as a result.  Now it's a full on emergency, bounty on my head and people coming after me.  Kill four or five, steal a horse and ride back to camp.

Pretty sure I just broke my entire game.  Way too easy to accidentally do unintended things as a result of the dumb controls.

I love everything Rockstar does.  But I am annoyed so far, hope I can get past this stupid stuff because I can tell there is something I want to play underneath it.

Picked the game up - played single player for a few hours, got overwhelmed by all the shit you can do and then got bored. Same shit happened in RDR. I'll force myself to play through it at some point, but right now I cannot be bothered.

This sort of thing is why I *really* want a PC port of the game (and yeah, I know I'm not going to get it). When everything is an active target I really want to have more control than a controller gives me.

Honestly, in Spider-Man it's just as bad, except for that fact that I can't target civilians and I'm mostly shooting "harmless" webs anyway, or I just jump in a random direction and I act like I'm just showing off...

My favorite horse got ran over by a train.  Sad Panda I fast travelled to Valentine via train. I noticed that I had a mail waiting, so I step inside and get my mail. Then that old crazy war vet was asking for change to I go over and talk to him.  Meanwhile, my dumb horse wanders in front of the train and gets pasted while I'm talking to this nutter. It wouldn't give me the option to revive. Bummer.

This isn't a spoiler, but Dutch is a fucking dumbass.  I suppose it's also a commentary on how the world is progressing (even graft), but they're still holding on to a model that doesn't fit the now. He's still a moron, though. It's like you're crossing off items from a "towns to shoot up" list.

There are an abundance of interesting bugs. Most are harmless (floating npcs), some are annoying (disappearing animal corpses, my dead horse), and a select few are can lead to sequence breaks or quest failure/disfunction. During one mission where I was supposed to escape in a wagon, I instead hopped off the wagon and escaped on foot. When I was clear of the law, I teleported back into the driver seat of the wagon.

Almost getting to the point where I'm going to just blaze through the main story, but I still find myself doing side quests, hunting, and randomly wandering around being a cowboy..

Hard to believe this game was in development for as long as it was. I am trying to drive to the end of the story so I don't have to play it anymore. Side things keep showing up.

Dutch is an idiot but that is probably intentional.

Stupid design is unearthed at every turn. Unsure why I can't just shoot some birds from a moving train without getting a $65 bounty, followed by every cop in St Denis trying to kill me.

Someone hit my horse with a cart, called the cops on me, and I have the bounty without doing anything.

That's what I was trying to say early on when I was talking about it feeling like the game was punishing me for having fun. And yet I've been playing GTA V without feeling that way. I've already been playing more GTA V on my THIRD playthrough (and second platform) than RDR2 could hold me.

And it pisses me off because I do love the game in a lot of ways. So I guess I'm really looking forward to GTA VI in 5-10 years. If only R* would do a mid-engine set of releases like Vice City and San Andreas.

Same thing happened in the first one.  You get a bit of family life, then once you finish that, you're dumped back into the world.

I was just doing the math that it's likely I'll be retired when GTA VII comes out. On consoles, not even going to extrapolate out PC releases, if even.

I still have RDR2 gathering a bit of dust after my first couple of attempts to get into it.  I can't really tell if it is the game that has changed (since the first), or me.  Probably both?  I can't really be bothered.  I found it annoying that you had to control every tiny little action, and woe to you if you accidentally hit the wrong button.

I was just doing the math that it's likely I'll be retired when GTA VII comes out. On consoles, not even going to extrapolate out PC releases, if even.

Que?  Am I missing something, or wouldn't number 6 be next?  Also, I think GTA will be more or less simultaneous release going forward, but who knows.

I was looking at 2021 speculation for GTA VI and thought about how GTA V was released in 2013....with dev cycles getting longer, it could happen (I should be able to retire in 2030).

Btw, the HDR was upgraded to acceptable for this one. I find it ironic that my PS4 can run HDR content but my PC with a 970 can't. Come on, man!

Anyway, I played for a few hours and realized the game tries to get you to do too much stuff when all I want to do is just ride around and explore and hang out. Maybe kill some zombies while I'm scavenging. Maybe I'm playing too much 7 Days to Die. I'd kill for a bike.

I fired this up again, committed myself to giving it a real try because it is such a damn pretty game. I just canít do it. Beautiful world with some decent bits of acting and story. Hamstrung by the pieces of the story not being cohesive and a control scheme that is trying do do at least twice as much as it needs to.

At one point the game was telling me to pick up my gun with R1, then right after pick up my hat with square. Why are these different buttons for action? Why do I need so much realism that my hat can fly off? Thereís nothing intuitive about the controls.

Why canít I try to be a decent person in the game? When meeting strangers in the wild I can greet them, but they really only seem to be there for me to exploit or rob. I wish I could get past the poor controls to see if the story redeems itself.

Iím chalking this one up to the worst money I spent on gaming last year.

I am really going to give it another try soon, but that pretty much sums up my complaint about it.  The micro managing of every little action....it's just too much.  I already fucked up my 1 hour long game by gutshotting people I was trying to say "hello" to, accidentally stealing a horse, etc.  I feel there is magic underneath it all, I just wish there was an "easy mode" that had some kind of sane controller mapping.

I was going to print out the control layout screens for reference but there are 18 PAGES due to all the contextual stuff. Still, the guide has helped me get a better feel for the thinking behind the layouts. I've only aimed a gun at a guy once by mistake lately (when I wanted to say hello).

My daughter has played the hell out of this game, while my disk sits unopened on the shelf.

But then, she doesn't seem to have a problem with just gutshotting the occasional bystander.

Trigger discipline? The only button I can think of for shooting is R2, which is always attack. I may just be ignorant of this gutshot button, though.

In general the biggest regular problem is forgetting you have a gun drawn when you focus on something. I like to ride with my rifle out and say hi to passersby, so....
