    All I heard and read about it made it seem like a game I can take at my pace and keep playing for longer if I so wish or just "run and gun" to the end if that's what I want.

    I find it hard to "commit" to a game for more than 20 hrs these days but that might be due to said games themselves.

    Like said earlier, no deep RPG open-world epics. Too much.
    Either RPG or open world and even then the game needs to have something driving it. RDR2 sounds like a nice fit.

    I considered every alternative on the list, except Watch Dogs Legion.
    Sekiro was basically on par with RDR2 but RDR2 felt more like a game I want to play now.

    Not least as I want to see how it runs with RTX 2070 versus upcoming RX 6800 :)
    Radeons seem to really kick ass (or horse's balls?) in RDR2 / Vulkan.

    Same here. But RDR2 is one of those were it takes significant longer until you “get bored” with the same (over and over again).

    It’s one of these games I actually finished and was not having a hard time to the end.

    Sounds good.

    To be clear what I mean is on one hand games failing to keep me gripped but also other things in life meaning less gaming time (that's not a bad thing).

    That is to say lots of fun can be had with short, focused games.
    I actually considered limiting all my future game purchases to shortish ones only prior to starting the poll.

    Then realised that's an artificial limit and surely would rule lots of great games out.
    Game can be 5 or 50 hrs as long as there's a purpose to it and gameplay is fun.

    Longer games should be easily playable in short bits preferably. For me.

    For example I've clocked during the last two or three years around 100 hrs on both Fallout 4 and Witcher 3.
    Having played them in bits with breaks in between has led to a situation where restarting seems more viable than resuming but I don't have the time or interest to do either really.

    My point ultimately being? I'm not exactly sure myself.
    Maybe I feel the need to justify and rationalize games nowadays, rather than just pick and play.

    I would vote on the options but I've only played RDR2 ...

    I like the sound of Valhalla but am playing Odyssey atm.
    But, thats been put on the backburner because I recently got Farcry New Dawn and its more fun :)

    Well, this was unexpected... turns out I cannot download a 111 GB game.

    I must d/l such large games in several bits.
    No problem I Imagined, but it seems if you have an idling download in Steam queue for too long (=a few days), Steam will just restart the download.

    Idk if this was a one off glitch or what but I don't want to find 20...30 GB of progress gone with my on average 2...3 MB/s connection.

    I have zero tolerance for this kind of stuff these days so I've requested a refund.
    Sad yes, not the game's fault but as it stands I've paid 40 EUR for a product I can't use.

    Sekiro it is then, with a much more manageable d/l size.
    Though I'll wait for a sale. Or perhaps uninstall Steam alltogether...

    Why not get it on R* store directly? You'd have to run 2 launchers when choosing Steam.

    All the more reason to refund Steam edition then, I wasn't aware that was the case.

    Idk, feel like I won't be buying any games from any platform anytime soon.

    Bought Sekiro from CDKeys, already downloaded and playing (little over 11 GB download which was nice).

    Can already tell it's going to be brilliant.
    Always went for parries in DS so the combat feels natural to me.

    Voted Sekiro on the poll, so happy to see you got to playing it! The game is amazing, the sword fighting, the bosses:eek:

    Good that you are used to parring. Just always try parring before dodging;)
