Last night I played Red Dead Redemption for the first time in over a year. I was playing the mission where you escort a train and protect it from bandits and found it quite frustrating. About 5 minutes into the chase each time I would die in some sort of frustrating way and have to return to the beginning of the chase each time. 5 minutes doesn’t seem like very long, but repeating the same segment over and over makes it feel like forever. This is the same reason I gave up on GTA IV, I got stuck on the bank robbery mission and never felt like powering through it. I’m glad GTA V has the mission checkpoint system it does, hopefully it’ll make it easier to finish this game. I haven’t finished a Rockstar game since San Andreas.
