I played the first game to completion but I never understand why people thought the main character was a good guy. Around the point you get to Mexico, there is a mission for the corrupt governor (I think), where you are tasked with burning down peoples homes. At that point, it's obvious that the governor won't even help you in your cause, but you do the mission anyway and he soon turns on you after you finish the task. At this point I fully understood that Marston doesn't care about anyone but himself and maybe his immediate family. He is just a selfish man whose past caught up with him and forced him to go do some task in the hopes of getting out of trouble. By the end when he is gunned down, I felt pretty indifferent about him and about the game in total. It did some neat stuff spawning radiant events while you traveled but other than that I didn't super enjoy any of it.

With that as my feelings on the first game, I really don't care about the new one.

If you can play the following, the big dlc that came out after. I remember that mini campaign having a pretty good ending and driving around cars was way more fun than it had any right to be.

I had my fun with this game back a few years ago (1000+hrs),but they kept changing the controls making it slower and slower. I still miss starting a wall run and canceling which threw you hundreds of meters at a time. Felt way cooler than just walking around shooting stuff, although that was okay too.

Looks like that old game doesn't exist anymore. Hope people still have fun with the new stuff.

Just go with Zero mission and super, other stuff is neat but if those two other games don't do it for you the other games won't either.

Start with ps4 and then maybe pickup pc later if other friends decide to play.

Not a must play but wait for it to get cheap and give it a shot. I had a really good time with it.

the hype was a bit much, sure it gets weird at the end but it didn't exactly blow me away either. But looking at it a different way, this is probably as good as this type of game can be, very polished and atmospheric. if your still on the fence wait for a sale and you'll probably enjoy it more.

I liked it quite a bit back in the day, put about 1000 hours into it. But the last big re-design of the movement really put me off, and that combined with the increased grind necessary to get new stuff sealed the deal. It's really much more than I ever expected a free to play game would be, but I prefer those bigger games like Destiny over it. But man those super jumps you used to be able to do after wall runs were so fun.

I feel like it's fandom has made it similar to darksouls for me, in that there are tons of streams of it making it possible for me to see the whole game while never actually playing it.
