Forums - Gaming Discussion - I want to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in third person, but...

I've been playing RDR2 for a few hours now and I have some trouble getting used to the walking animations. Without pressing the run-button, Arthur walks/move dreadfully slow. This is especially frustrating when you're inside small houses and have to turn around constantly to collect items since you have to face them to take or when looting corpses. It's like Arthur has a 2 second delay before responding to your analogue stick. When pressing the run-button he suddenly starts walking to fast and people fall to the ground when touched slightly. Overall it makes interacting with NPCs and items a pain in the ass.

For some reason this isn't the case when playing in FPS mode. Normal walking speed is appropiate and the run-button is normal running speed. Why didn't R* apply this also in 3rd person view? I would play it in FPS mode if the game wasn't 30fps. I have a lot of trouble playing FPS games in 30fps, especially during action sequences. 

Did anyone else notice this and how do you deal with it?

Can we have a RDR2 main thread so there isn't a topic for every single detail in the game?

Why would anyone running a site do that? It only hurts clicks and site revenue.

Because it hurts user experience? My latest topic tab is filled with RDR2 entries.

As was the case with BoTW the "NX" and every other exclusive or majour game topic. Don't be the party pooper, dude.

I'm with him/ her. It's actually quite annoying. But it is what it is.

 

As frf the walking speed... That does sound annoyiga but I'd have to see it or experience to offer any concrete info

Besides the clunky controls the game itself is amazing indeed. I didn't know this level of detail were possible on current gen consoles. 



Geez, spoiler alert. I didn't know the character movement was sluggish. God damn all these RDR2 spoiler threads.

OT: Just use the bikes and cars to get around.

Same, I have no doubt now that TloU pt2 and Ghost of Tsushima and maybe even Cyberpunk 2077 will be cross gen. I was worried there for a bit.
