Red Dead Redemption 2

Been playing it. Gonna review it. And I find it making me feel kind of uncomfortable.

I liked the first one a lot, because at least you could play the character as a generally good guy if you wanted to. This game... You can still kind of do that but there are unavoidable parts of the game where you have no choice, and I don't like that.

I haven't played the first, but I just stared playing 2. I think it's kind of frustrating. My horse died and now there's no way for me to get around.

I've started the initial write-up and I think the m orality section is going to be longer than the gameplay section. Sheesh. They really hit all the points.

Did you ever post a review for this game? I’m interested in reading it.

My thoughts: definitely not for the kiddies. I didn’t care much for being forced to be a bad man early on myself. In the end though, I think it worked out for the story they wanted to tell.
Spoiler:
One of the most interesting things I’ve read from players who finished the game is how some people started the game playing Arthur as evil as possible, but started changing the way they played after he found out he was dying of TB. It was also clear that all of the bad things you do early on end up having dire consequences for Arthur and the entire gang.
There’s a lot worth discussing in the story of this game, but for anyone adverse to playing the role of an evil man, I wouldn’t recommend.

I just submitted one, so you should see it soon.

I've been playing Arthur as noble as I can, but it feels disconnected when the story forces evil acts.
