Not because the game is a shitty game or anything like that, but because the game was so incredible, so much fun, and so immersive and then they give us this half-assed multiplayer freeroam that had none of the outstanding features of the singleplayer game- Living, breathing world, random events, moving trains, lively saloons, better camera- and just felt like an overall bust to me. Two years later me and my friends decided to put our discs back in the 360 to give this game a go one more time and now I find myself continuing to be jaded by Red Dead Redemption's multiplayer. Even with all of the expansions it still feels empty, lifeless, and boring in multiplayer. Even the Undead expansion disappoints me because although we've got an outstanding idea- zombies in the wild west- for multiplayer they give us more HORDE MODE like every other game out there.
I know the game has been out for awhile, but playing it again reminded me of how crushed I was to log into multiplayer only to find the only real thing to do was use auto-aim to kill other players for 10 minutes until getting bored. Even the coop missions provided get old after the first two times done. I really wish they had let me rob trains with my friends in the freeroam and go into a lively, bustling saloon with the piano music playing only to sit down and play a game of poker with my posse.
Anyone else felt this way about the game when they first played it? Anyone still coming back to it and feeling like there should've been way more than what we got for multiplayer? It wouldn't make me so upset if I didn't love the game already, so it's not one of those "if you don't like it, don't play it" kind of scenarios, it's more of the "I really like this game and wanted to see it do better than it has".
