It is utterly bizarre to frame someone's dislike of a video game as 'upsetting' because it does not match your own experiences. Like this isn't Fallout 76 we're talking about, it's Red Dead Redemption 2, a game that very much sets out to do its own thing without a care of what others think. And it's possible to respect that direction while still not liking the game it results in.
I get that RDR2 is popular, but this, frankly, cultish need for others to like it as much as y'all supporters do is kind of unsettling.
This has been happening to me for a few weeks. It fails to load for the first 30 seconds, then will magically be OK so long as I'm actively viewing GB. If I leave for a while and come back the problem will reappear.
@michaelkennedy: Age of the empires, C&C (any entry prior to RA3) and Warcraft are a must for anyone looking for a classic realtime strategy game.
@noblenerf: i didn't know that Shogun doesn't have base building as i have never got a chance to try a total war game, should i scrap of the list and buy Warhammer instead?
I will look into Battletech and Stellairs, thanks!
@dgtlty: Thanks, XCOM games are great but i believe that they are Tactial RPG games.
Sorry, I misread the OP. Total Wars have base building (or rather, town building), just not in the Starcraft way I thought you were trying to avoid. (I misread the OP as mentioned, whoops!) Total War is kind of like Civilization with pre-placed towns, and a much bigger focus on war & conquest. It's a wargame.
Another rec I have is Age of Wonders 3. This is a Civ-like game, but fantasy-themed and with greaaat combat.
So I never had much affinity with Pascal and never really saw him as an important character. It wasn't until the Waypoint spoilercast and Giant Bomb GotY deliberations that I had any deeper understanding of him, but of course this was long after I had finished Nier: Automata.
In any case, I did what I figured A2 would do and chose the most merciful option--and killed him. Destroying who he is without killing him--that is, wiping his memory--is a fate worse than death. Didn't know about the third option. But I figured it was a really clear-cut case and I'm surprised so many chose the alternative.
