    I downloaded this game in just over 10 mins on my gigabit connection. I play the game comfortably on max settings with my 2080ti. Those of you having performance issues should look to the console versions. This game demands you to be a PC Lord and I hope this direction continues. Better components, better life.

I played about an hour last night plus playing around with settings; this game was why I pulled the plug on my new monitor last week. Took forever to download for seemed the server was capping it to 2.5Mb/s.

Game looks awesome though. I cranked the graphics slide up a couple of notches. At 4K only got around 30-40fps, but at 1440p averaging 60fps with my current settings.

Eye candy  is nice, but this is the bit that makes me think I'll never buy it.  I've done this enough times already.

...But Rockstar's mission design hasn't changed

Red Dead 2's rigid mission design uses the open world as little more than a stage for the same missions we've been playing in Rockstar games since Grand Theft Auto 3. Head to the map marker, ride and talk with someone to another map marker, shoot people, chase someone, and ride to the final map marker, chatting all the way. Any misstep within the bounds of the mission design means trying again. Don't take a shortcut, don't alert the guard, don't think up your own solution to any problem—ignore the massive, gorgeous sandbox or try again.

I had the Red Dead 1 on a PS3 I owned years ago , but I was too old to get my head around a game pad (FPS PC player using kybd and mouse for years) ended up selling the PS3 only to find out a few weeks later I could have used a mouse and keyboard with the PS3 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(.
My son in law always said it was the best PS game he ever played , I now get a second chance with this release :) :) :) :) :) :)
