I do not really get people when they say traversing rdr2's world was a problem because i personally used the fasttravel map and stagecoaches so i never had real troubles with travelling for a long time.
If people did not bother to find out those options when they were so clear then i do not really know what is to blame,the game itself or the players that have gotten used to be reminded of everything they can do 1000 times over.
I never took a stagecoach ride, and only used the fast travel map a few times. I mostly traversed the world in Red Dead Redemption 2 on horseback in cinematic mode. I feel like this really allowed me to enjoy the beautiful scenery in the game, which added to my overall employment.
