I cannot wait to dive into the world of RDR!
I was recently starting Niko's story over again for the third time (having played the main story line and each of the DLCs through twice -- in the last two years -- talk about replay value!!) and I was overcome by a feeling of nostalgia as I played through the early missions of GTA IV. You know what I mean, when your biggest problem is Vlad, when Roman's taxi depot is still humming with business and when a pistol and a baseball bat is still all you need to grub up a little cash and show certain unfortunates who the boss is. I stopped and took a deep breath, shot a few rounds of pool with Jacob and knew that it was still all in front of me!
I for one am going to savor the early missions of RDR. I'm going to take a deep breath, soak in the scenery and get some good practice in on lassoing SOBs, skinning critters and killing what I aim at.
I'm going to cherish what meager innocence and simple challenges RDR has to offer in the early missions because I know that sh*t is gonna get ugly real quick!
