How strict are you going to be with the story?

I know some guys who will just be sticking to the main story of the game and spending little time doing anything else until they complete that side of the game. I also know others like myself who will be spending time doing side missions and quests as they pop up as well as just messing around in the world for kicks. 

How do you intend on being with the main story of the game?

Normally I only do the story to unlock things, so it depends on how open it is to begin with. If areas of the map are closed off then I'll probably just rattle through the story quickly to get everything opened up and then enjoy the map.

Do you ever actually complete the story?

I tend to focus heavily on the story. It’s hard for me not to. If one mission ends with them saying “holy shit! We need you to go talk to so and so right away and save Jane Doe from whatever!” , I can’t go riding around the map for days on end instead and hunt or do some stranger missions. I’m captivated. I need to see that story through. Then I run around and explore.  Depends I guess if there’s something pressing that needs doing.

Yes I always complete the story, and 100%ed RDR1. But like I said earlier in another post, I can never get that emotionally involved with the story. It just bores me, and it's difficult to follow when they're shouting it on horseback or in the case of GTA in a car while you're trying to drive. I know I'm alone in this, and I'm completely open to connecting with the RDR2 storyline, but my past experience leads me to guess that it will be the same. I wasn't even that bothered about the ending of RDR, the mission was just another obstacle to get past in order to progress.

I'm hoping to do a complete play through in my own time. Sure, I'm not going to worry about getting every little task completed but I do plan on taking my time exploring and enjoying as much as I'd like to without rushing through everything, it's what made RDR so special in being able to just take in your surroundings and enjoy every little bit while moving onto your next objective.

In a game like RDR2?   .....I'll be completing the story and likely all of the side missions, etc.  

 

With a good title, I don't mind savoring all that the campaign has to offer.  Depending on how it's developed, sometimes I will opt to complete side tasks first before tackling some main story missions to gain experience, collect weapons/items that might be offered, earn money, etc.  ......basically preparing/outfitting my character with better equipment, etc. before tackling more difficult parts of the game.  I can also get more familiar with the game mechanics, the world, etc.

I usually don't go from mission to mission. I will do the first mission as they often chuck you straight into one. RDR2's map will be so big and so in depth, that it would be hard not to explore and play around with NPCs and see how much you can do within the world outside of missions. I get distracted quite easily in video games and find enjoyment out of all sorts of things. I'll want to just go riding, seeing the landscapes or go hunting and chill out with the gang. Then when I feel like I've done a lot, then I start focusing on missions more for a while. I'm quite a relaxed, casual gamer but R* is always enjoyable to play. I need to remember not to leave big gaps between missions otherwise I'll forget the story line lol!

I think this is important.

This is exactly how I play. When something needs unlocking or I just fancy doing something other than wandering around, that's when I tackle the story.

I think this depends on how the game pans out. If the side missions aren't appealing to do and I am more hooked on the story than anything, I will skip them but if they are decent/great, I will mix them in as they become available. Usually, if you skip everything on the side and do little exploring, the game ends up going by a lot faster (be it the case for other games like this) and I don't want it to feel short.
