    This is the world we live in. YouTube subscriber wannabes need to finish all 26 main missions and post it up showing everyone how to suck an egg.

    South Parks new season is spoiling the game a little for me...

    I finally finished everything I want to do in this game last night - main story, legendary animals & fish, all bounty missions etc - pretty much everything.

    All I can say is wow, what a game. Best game I have played since witcher 3 and a really enjoyable story.


    I spent a bit of time last night exploring the New Austin part of the map to get the last couple legendary animals. This is a huge area to have played no real part in the game, guessing it will be the setting for some DLC or something?

    How does one balance work, dad lyfe and gaming?

    I don't think I can put them back. They're too big now.

    I have perma-sickness. :(

    Which makes the second half of this game relatable.

    My gaming is generally after wife and kids go to bed if I’m not too tired. So an hour or so once or twice a week if I’m lucky.

    Was kinda lucky I had this over Xmas and I got some extended play time.

    Pretty much same for me! After little one is in
    Bed I jump in my chair and fire up the PS4.
    Been pretty busy with other projects/hobbies lately thou so gaming has been pushed aside for the moment.

    This game to me is like GTAV, I wish R* would reverse the trend of no SP expansions.

    I finished this pretty quickly tbh and now i just have fond memories.

    Would help fill the gap between there games and sell like hotcakes.
    I’ve completed the story but got heaps of other shit to do.

    I did as much as I wanted to so unless i started a whole new game (which I would do if it came to PC next year). I've got so much other stuff to play that going 100% on this isn't a priority. Full story and all the side missions was enough, i don't go in for treasure hunting or for that matter most of the other hunting.

    You thought about 100%ing it (Or whatever is humanly possible in a R* game)?

    I did quite a bit of extra stuff in GTA5 afterwards, just to ride the high. Let it taper off when things got too grindy.

    mmm yeah i think clearing out that quest log is do-able it'd just take almost as much time as what i have already spent though - that's what i mean by 100% though, fully clear any quest logs.

    I've done RDR2 so far as a super nice guy. Would love to do it again in a couple years' time as an arsehole.

    I bit the bullet (Teeheehee) and got a console to play this and RDR. Been wanting to play RDR for years but I haven't owned a console since the PS1 and kept thinking it would be ported. I'm guessing Rockstar will announce RDR2 for PC tomorrow :lol:.

    I've heard playing RDR first will flesh out the world a bit more and add some background and detail but isn't essential for the experience.

    Someone told me that I need the GOTY edition of RDR in order for it to be backwards compatible, is that true? Is it just the one x improved data?

    Is knowledge of RD Revolver important to either of the other titles?
