The Problem With Grinding In Red Dead Online

  • Published on Apr 16, 2019
  • Me talking about the problems with Red Dead Online . Grinding is fun and something I enjoy doing but when people grind continuously for nothing to buy it becomes boring and endangers the future of the game.

    I really hope that Rockstar brings this spring update out soon and that it is packed with content. They need to add something unique to this game after the last update was a disaster. I did not mention the gold bar microtransactions but the problem is also that they launched a beta with microtransactions which I have never seen in a beta. The fact that some things can only be purchased with gold bars is really bad.

      Hey my dudes.
      Why grinding when you cant spend. I dont play rdr since few month because of the lack of mission and funny battles.
      That game is just too quiet.
      In freemode and story mode, ive been asleep many times.
      Thats the only game that makes me wanna sleep.

      I'm hoping for property's too, but I'm hoping for carriages, more ways to get around the map that we could customize. Until I finally see something to grind for aside from clothing, and guns... I would also love to see Heists in the game if they add property's.

    RDO was fun for awhile as i leveled up, earned money, and purchased some stuff.
    The most fun i had was probably wall breaching in Rhodes and killing lawman for xp until i was out of ammo.
    My last session was about 4 weeks ago.

    Haven’t you noticed when people stop playing a game like GTA or RDR people want DLC but once they release theyre content it’s all expensive, it wouldn’t be as bad if people didn’t stop paying it because once they stop playing they can’t afford what they release because they didn’t play.

    Rockstar is good at making a great game, and destroying it. Red dead was an awesome game when it first dropped, people bitched and cried because they had no idea how the passive card system worked. They cried so hard, that rockstar nerfed everything that made the game great. It kinda seems like they are punishing people for playing. This game is dead with little chance of redemption.

    I really want a bounty hunting
    mode. Go to the sheriff of a town, get a target, go to last known location, get another clue and track them down around a couple states. And when you finally bring him in there’s a $50+ reward cuz they should take a long time to complete. That would give you good money, make it feel immersive and give you a reason yo travel around the map.

    Hate online with a passion. I’m actually better at killing people with a knife because free aim with crappy weapons like a carbine repeater or cattleman revolver is so hard especially with how horrible the dead eye is. I could kill so many things if I could at least tag another player or AI but you don’t even get full ammo like on story mode when you enter dead eye. The most fun I have in red dead online is going into Saint Denis with one or two of my friends and killing every AI in sight.

  • Cogna
    Cogna Month ago +8

    GTA is a materialistic game. The fun comes from buying expensive things with your money that you grind for.
    Red Dead is not materialistic, the fun doesn’t come from buying things, it comes from being a badass cowboy. Rockstar needs to focus on adding co-op/story missions or heists instead of simply putting more things in the game to buy. Especially when the only way to buy those items is to play the same game modes or hunt over and over again.

    • Ryan S
      Ryan S 28 days ago

      It's only materialistic if you take it that way. The reason I grind personally is because everything is beau coup expensive, like 2 mil for a warehouse. There are expenses to running a business. People play RDR to feel like a badass cowboy, right? Well people play GTAO to be a badass car thief, a badass mercenary, a badass hitman, a badass billionaire playboy, a badass Michael Meyers-like slasher, a badass race car driver, a badass derby king, a badass golfer, a badass tennis player, etc. Etc. Etc. 6 years of content and all you see is a price tag?

    I only tried Online twice. Totaling a playtime of approximately 2hrs. I hated it. It's boring, the crap is overpriced, the game is too bent on PvP stuff... it's just not fun for someone like me who prefers a lot of PvE content. I'd have more fun playing Elder Scrolls Online for one week straight, than to suffer through just one hour of RDO...

    Me and a friend of mine usually hang out on GTAO. We don't do pvp, we don't even grind anymore, we just go there and do nothing (cruise, buy stuff, kill each other in creative ways...).
    I sincerely hope RDR2 comes to PC cause we are HUGE spaghetti-western fans and if we could move in the wild west, oh boy, we'd be happy af, despite the problems people say it's got.

  • J Haydad

    Excellent analysis (as always) of RDR2 Online Beta! I can't see why we are almost 5 months into the release of online and the "beta" name is still attached. I admin servers and write software automations for a living, I am not in the habit of "paying to test someone else's beta release!" Release that bitch and let's get to it already, R*!
    I've been waiting on that for a few months now, and left my story mode at chapter 3 to level up the online characters. My friend's nephew created a GTA Online character on my PS4, it was at level 5 in Dec and I got my RD Online character up to level 15. I then switched over to GTA, never having played any multiplayer online games before. I started out getting the RDR2 six shooter and stone hatchet, then had cash to get a garage. I've been grinding the crap out of GTA Online and am about to hit level 200 today or this weekend. RDO still being in beta makes me want to avoid it until they "release it for realz." Like The Professional, I have high hopes for RDR2 and the online component. It's just we have to wait until it happens.
    To be fair, we are mostly delivery people in GTA as well; just replace cocaine and meth with pizza and fried chicken and we are just jumped-up delivery boys no different than Phillip J. Fry. We just have more vehicles and guns, and one less kick-ass robot. I hear that Bender is Great.

    Professional once again you sound like an idiot and a hypocrite... you have over 600 million dollars in GTA and youre not gonna spend it on anything because you got almost everything you want in the game.. but because of upcomin content you see the need to save that money. its the same in RED DEAD I have $12,000 and 150 Gold all from grindin I have alot of the things I need but because I know that years to come we will have loads of content I am still grindin just as you are because I saw the struggle I had in GTA havin $100,000 when everyone had Millions

  • Cornell Warner

    Professional no offense but you sound like an ass by sayin you have things to spend your money on in GTA Online but noy much in RED DEAD Online. you are comparin a 6 year old game to a 8 month old game. GTA didnt get where it is in 8 months and neither will RED DEAD. quit complainin and wait your ass for the game to reach its highest potential... I didnt play GTA online on PS4 until it made 5 years online and I had to play catch up to everyone and do double grindin but I had fun and friends helped me. I havent played GTA since RED DEAD came out and Im havin more fun than when I played GTA 1st... I dont enjoy everything in RED DEAD the same but I play what I like. EVERY SINGLE DAY since October 26th. PLEASE GIVE YOUR FEED BACK ON THAT. I'll be waitin!!!!

    Last time I played was when the Evans repeater was added. Until they add properties and businesses I'm done. I hope the game succeeds. I have moved on for now. Days gone is about to release and GTA should have a DLC at some point in the next month. Never big on pvp modes and I've hunted and fished way too much to be satisfied with that grind. There is nothing else to buy. Give me a home base and I'll return for at least a few days a week, but random spawns and no goal to grind for makes it pointless.

    Hey professional last year some guy released rumors that the PS5 would drop with GTA 6 being one of the release titles. A lot of people didn’t believe it but he got the specs for the PS5 right. Do you think it’s too soon for GTA 6 (or a side game like VCS/LCS)? I know the dev time was about 4/5 years however I don’t think GTA5 reached its full potential

    The world needs more life to it too.... if they’re gonna nerf animal spawns we at least need random encounters out in the wilderness, so it’s not just empty space between towns with duds saying hello.
    We need bandits holding up wagons of innocents we can either help or hinder.
    Marshall’s transporting prisoners we can break out.
    NPC hunters and campers, getting into shenanigans like in story mode.
    Hermits and beggars in the streets and woods who yell at us if we disturb them.
    Pretty much anything that’s already in story mode that could clearly work online just as well.
    I’m not seeing what the massive issue is here preventing RDR2 online from being good? Rockstar has all the pieces... they just need to put them together and quit sniffing paint thinner.

    they dropped online too soon. For GTA we had a almost a year of just playing SP so when Online dropped it was exciting and we could get past all the quirky stuff. Rockstar wanted to monetize RDR from the get go which is unfortunate because this kind of game needs a SP DLC. I'm not playing this game because I grind money on GTA and when I do I can actually buy a bunch of stuff, you can't do that in RDR. If I'm gonna grind for a long time I want stuff that I can buy. I'm also a little bitter because we know Rockstar has updates and probably a DLC for GTA ready to go but didn't/havent released it because they want us to play RDR, but I won't be buying it. I enjoyed your play through and have no desire to play it online.
