Couple of thoughts about the first hour.
Years ago, sold PS4 version of Red Dead 2 after a few hours of shitty controls and disappointment, bought 5 dollar multiplayer on PC but was always bored with it, deleted it, then bought the full game last Steam sale. Pretentious. Tedious. Garbage combat, animations. Had forgotten, wish I didn't. Thought it would be better with a mouse and keyboard. I mean, it is better this way, but still crappy. The whole time walking and talking I felt deflated, bored. I don't like the characters. Quit as soon as it changed to daylight. Will grind farther, but Rockstar is trash. They don't understand good gameplay or don't care. They have only declined.
Still beginning, went slightly out of bounds of the scripted story. "Weather here is harsh. Go back to the camp." Keep going a few more feet. Horse falls over suddenly. "Your horse has died due to the harsh weather conditions."
Might as well not have any free roaming in the first couple of missions and just make it one long event with checkpoints. There's only the one mission marker to go to. **** you, Rockstar.
They don't know how to tell a story, don't understand westerns. Just exposition dumps about things that happened off screen or in the past in the walking and talking, or riding and talking in this case. It's dull.
Motherfucker... Bear in front of us, black guy suggests going around. I go to the side, yells at me, "Come on, let's stay together!" Go back to him. "Let's cut up here. Up the trail." That's where I went!
And even though my horse dies a couple of yards from the camp very suddenly when I try to explore on my own, they hitch them out in the storm (no shelter) before taking the deer inside.
