Gentlemen, I'd like to open this topic to a fairly open ended discussion of drinking and whoring, two of my personal favorite things!
I'm interested in your thoughts on in-game drinking, the presence of prostitutes and what your attitude is to these is as a gamer and in the role of John Marston?
Since first playing San Andreas, I've considered the inability to get the bartender behind the bar to pour me a fucking drink to be a serious setback to the realism of open world gaming. And while GTA IV introduced inebriation as a game mechanic, it wasn't until TBoGT that a guy could get some goddamn service around here! - IV also took whoring to a new level by providing lap dances at the strip clubs and some decent animation when you had $50 or $70 to blow on a hooker off the street!
As I understand RDR, a guy can buy drinks at the bar but cannot purchase the services of a prostitute - on account of Marston being married!? What the fuck is that!!
All I can say is that if the old boy ain't getting none he's gonna be drinking some copious amounts of booze! And, by the way, I intend to have a bottle of good tequila at hand while I play, just to really get into character!
What are your thoughts on this situation?
