So, I am now well over two hours of playtime in, and I am still doing missions such as distracting guards and herding cattle. How much longer until this game opens up? Or will I always be this bored? I've heard such great things about this game, and I'm not really seeing any of it. I am seriously tempted to return this game to Gamefly.
2+ hours in, not feeling it...
For what it's worth, try to immerse yourself into the game environment as much as possible. Put on some nice headphones, play late at night by yourself, and sip on some good 12 year. You'll be feeling the isolation in no time!
The story twists were the big draw for me. I didn't think they could pull off that tone since they're famous for GTA. Hope you dig it soon.
any game where you have to do other things while playing to immerse yourself isn't a good game. A good game immerses you, not the other way around.

I feel for you OP, I sent it back after like 4 hours. the story, characters weren't particularly interesting, the humor wasn't even there (there was at least some lackluster humor in GTAIV) oh and also the game was kinda boring.
Well it is definitely more fun doing the missions with gun battles and stuff, especially the mission where you get the machine gun and have to shoot dudes while riding on a mining cart. But I still find myself bored a lot of the time. I'll keep trucking though. Thanks everyone!
" If you don't find Red Dead Redemption immersive, stick to something like baby's first horror where no attempt at immersion is ever made so you have nothing to worry about. "Woah man, I loved both and thought they both did a good job at what they were going for.
Anyway, I felt the same way. It wasn't until I was doing the missions for the snake oil salesman that I thought the game picked up.
" @Vodun: You don't have to beat the game in order to think it's fun. Unless you're suggesting games aren't fun until you've completely beaten it, then I don't know what to tell you. And to let you know, I beat the game about a month ago and found it to be one of the best games I have ever played. "Heh, I didn't realize how old this post was =P Your original post seemed very unsure of your feelings towards the game. That's why it seemed odd to use it as an avatar =)
