Red Dead Redemption 2 Online – PS4
I’ve found myself back in the Red Dead Redemption 2 Online loop a bit since the Frontier Pursuits update – its given me something to do as a soloist which I’ve appreciated.
Its been fun have bounties to hunt, skins to cart across the map and running around with the metal detector looking for things to dig up has actually been the most fun of all. It did take a while to hustle enough cash to afford the shovel and the detector but I’d say it was totally worth it.
I did have a go at the first Legendary Bounty but I am still low level and solo so didn’t get too far.
What I don’t like is that as someone who struggles with completionism, getting back into something like this is quintessentially just dead time. There’s nothing I can complete or really feel satisfied about – its just an endless invitation to grind for ephemera for the pure but empty pleasure of doing so.
It’s clearly a trap so I’m going to try to ignore it unless by some miracle I somehow make a huge dent in my ever-growing Gaming Shelf Of Shame.
I have no issues putting Red Dead Redemption 2 down – I put in more than enough time finishing the amazing single player campaign – I got my money’s worth for sure.
