    Not sure critical claim and multiple award wins is failing to deliver.
    People who don't like the genre shouldn't get sold on hype; they should be more careful what games they play, and not blame a game for failing to pander to their tastes when it is doing exactly what it should be doing. I don't know anyone who loves the genre who doesn't love the game. Most think it's the best game ever of it.
    That's successful delivery.
    There are plenty of genres of games I don't buy regardless of reviews cos I know I'll think its crap no matter how good fans of the genre think it is. I think all COD games (and FPS games of that style) are bank, for example.

    Could barely bring myself to ride a horse in the epilogue... that final horse riding cutscene of the main game rather tugged on the heartstrings!😂

    I played from start to finish when it was live and both SWFemu and SWG Legends since its been shut.  I think its fair to say Its my favourite game of all time!
    I love MMOs that actually require you to work with other people, modern MMOs you can pretty much solo.  The freedom that SWG gave you to play the game your way, the crafting and resource gathering has never been matched imo.  Yeah it had its faults and it is showing its age (although you can mod it now to upgrade the graphics/sounds etc) but its still my favourite game lol.
    In many ways RDR2 has a lot of similar traits, just give me an area to play in and the tools to play how I want and I'm mostly happy!

    It was showing its age when it shut down! Was a good time though. I think I'd prefer to keep it as a memory. I made the mistake of going back to play Rift, I think 2 years ago - and my god does that look completely garbage now. I can't remember anything good about it any more because how jarring it was 😄

    I'm into the epilogue now. Still loving it all.
    Still walking everywhere (unless in a firefight), almost never galloping when I'm on a horse. Greeting everyone I pass, stopping to investigate whenever a random event appears at the roadside. It's so great 😄 
     
    Also @maxjam I agree about Rogue One. As far as I'm concerned my head-canon for Star Wars is the Original Trilogy, Rogue One and now The Mandalorian. As well as BioWare's Old Republic games, of course. 😛 
    I installed the new Star Wars game over the weekend, the genre really isn't for me. I'll probably stick it on Story difficulty and blast through it in a few hours. I hate platformers; and 3rd person action melee games - so not a great game design for me!

    It sounds like you feel about RDR2 the way that many people do. It’s been designed for people who want to become engrossed in a story, role play as a cowboy who can make choices. 
     
    All the side quests and activities that you say are pointless, other people adore them and enjoy doing them. People want to collect cards. We all have different hobbies.
    You say that it’s pointless to do all those things, but that’s why people play games.
    I'm only 10 hours into Red Dead and I found the intro hour boring, the next 9 hours have just got better and better. I spent about half an hour in camp listening to people interact and playing cards, it was great. And then was off hunting wild bears, a completely different activity but equally worth my time

    The New Orleanian who got me to become a Saints fan is a huge (perhaps bigger) fan of LSU. So t'was inevitable.
    Other methods are picking up the biggest team in your NFL team's state; like Jimbo has done with the Gophers (Vikings). Or seeing which colleges your favorite players are from, knowing at least they'll be joining you in cheering them on
    If none of that is of interest, choose the age old way that people have picked teams when they have no stake: Find the team with your favourite colourscheme 😄

    @jimbo jones things looking REALLY good for me going into Q2

    Only two of those numbers are attached to players who aren't playing yet. But your guys are losing 17-0, so my plan is working - just in the non-ideal way.

    Most of our best attacking players over the years; Mount, Wilson, Ince etc. are all players that "I'd be worried about his physicality" applies too. I don't think it's a good argument, to be frank. I think it's outdated.

    Compensation is the player's base salary + other fees such as signing bonuses divided over the number of years the contract is for. It's 100k higher and his contract was a 3 year one - so that's £300k of additional fees. ~£2.5m contract - which is how the Americans do things, rather than basing it on money per week.

    Also worth noting that the MLS has a wage cap, in attempt to achieve league parity; and most of a team's "cap hit" goes into the old european players they bring over to increase the profile; so I wouldn't be surprised if he sees a wage rise, if he were to move here.

    He also asks the questions on his list without fail; even if the guest answered it by expanding on their answer to a previous question. Making guests repeat themselves makes them uncomfortable, which has been visibly evident on a number of these interviews.
