i'd buy it again on PC and play through it in first person mode with a mouse and keyboard.

that plus the obvious performance and visual benefits

  • Frame rate and frame times will improve the sluggish feel of 30FPS
  • 21:9 aspect ratio will give the game a more cinematic look
  • Mouse controls will improve the aiming the game dramatically
  • Mods
  • Higher graphically quality

I have a 1440p monitor and playing it at 60FPS with a mouse those two things alone will improve the game for me as on my Pro the 30FPS along with controller the movement and aiming was just bad and unresponsive for me.

Still a superb game regardless, but I would definitely double dip.

I can't list any more reasons than those.

Basically what has already been stated above. I refuse to buy RDR2 on console mainly because 30fps is shit. I will hold out as long as necessary to play the PC version.

The only thing I can add is that I will actually play it as well.

Sales

The abysmal free aiming, which was the main reason I sold the game after only like four hours. I can't recall another modern controller game with aiming that terrible.

I really enjoyed playing it on the PS4 but with the PC version I would love some mods that would get rid off some of the more annoying aspects of the game. Also K+M all the way.

This time?!... I could help but start fist fights, hitting someone in the face and watching their cowboy hat fall off is one of the most satisfying things in the game. That and lassoing strangers while on horse back.

I haven't done anything like that! I couldn't bring myself to do that. But next time I will lasso strangers :)

So that modders could fix all the flaws that R* won’t.

-alter the wanted system so that stuff such as robbing a train is actually do-able without bridge tricks.

-make it so that the game remembers what weapons are selected so you don’t have to constantly re-select them.

....among many other small annoyances.

  • Frame rate
  • Mouse aiming
  • Faster movement mod
  • Maybe a mod to get rid of all the excessive animations or make them skippable so the game feels like it has some semblance of respect for the player's time?

Eh TBH I had a lot of fun when exploring, playing late-1800's Cowboy simulator, running around and choking people, etc... but when it came to the actual gunplay I just wasn't feeling it. I really want to continue playing it and get past chapter 2, but I need some quality of life improvements.

Nothing. I still wouldn't play it. Not interested in that genre.
