Reasons Why I'll Possibly Never Complete Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption II- old Mexico way

Red Dead Redemption II- old Mexico way

Open-world games are expansive adventures rife with stunning journeys and yes - even bugs.

The fact that Rockstar Games celebrates the game's success as the "second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time" rather than just calling it the second-highest grossing video game launch, says a lot about where video games stand today.

To answer the question, popular video game mythbuster and content creator DefendTheHouse followed a few Red Dead Redemption 2 NPCs for an entire day, and came to some interesting conclusions.

There are seemingly endless things to do in this game, and even after spending nearly 70 hours playing, I am still discovering new things to do and new systems to play with. It's not game-breaking, but it is annoying. If you've already progressed well beyond that with your gang members missing, then it's bad news.

If you have time, however, to dedicate to the game, it will reward you handsomely. Players have reported missing people after finishing Chapter 2, and they've speculated that the issue has to do with restarting a certain mission. The side missions aren't pointless and they develop not only Arthur as a character, but his relationships with other characters as well.

The game lets the player choose if they want to be a good guy or a bad guy. Some of the more emotional beats of the story actually made my eyes water. And when that story is sadly through, there is still an approximately 10-hour epilogue, as well as a vast, booming and lovely open world to explore. Luckily, Rockstar Games is on the case!
