To Greener Pastures

Red Dead Redemption 2 • You completed Chapter 2 • 20G • 41.94% of gamers unlocked this

I’m feeling a bit better about documenting achievements today. I don’t know if that was the beginning of the end yesterday, or whether it was just a ‘blip’ in the bigger picture, but for today, at least, the journey continues.

I had a sense that this was going to be the end of a chapter, or at least a progress achievement, and so I’m glad I left it for today because it gave me the latitude to just steadily work my way through the story tonight. This is part of the reason why I am considering retiring the blog, but we’ll see. For now, I’m just enjoying the nice narrative and beautiful, beautiful scenery.

I’ve actually spoiled the plot for myself in RDR2 which most people would be upset about, but I feel like it gives me the latitude to be able to just play it without worrying about the narrative. I actually really like the overall plot, and I think Morgan’s unique story arc is something that more games should do … but, of course, I’m only up to Chapter 2, so I’ll make a more robust assessment at the end of the game.

For now though, excellent story telling, wrapped in beautiful visuals and well-rounded characters. Well done, Rockstar.
