Did you shelf the PC version?


Recommended Posts

I know a lot of people have had a number of complaints about the game. Some have quit completely and shelved the game while others opt for taking breaks. Did you give up on the game are are you still holding out for improvements? 

I don't play that often these days cause of the issues mainly which sucks. I am going to wait until they do another big update and if the issues aren't taken care of, I might have to just give up on the game and move on.

I can be pretty patient with a game. I loved the story and played it several times both on console and PC. I know that a lot of the issues for the game comes down to them not really prioritizing fixes players want or need. The game has giving me its fair share of trouble but I would say 70% of the time I have no issues with it so I will continue to play online and wait for the rest of the fixes to be rolled out.

I just take breaks. I don't need to quit the game completely. I still get enjoyment out of it. I feel like people who quit the game completely over issues likely main the game and I don't do that often. I always have other things to play and enjoy so I don't face burnout.

I am shelving it for a while, most likely a year or so. I had hoped that with some of the recent apparent attempts at fixing the issues that Rockstar was at least making an effort, but they have fallen silent again.  I am going to need some additional hard drive space soon, and at this point RDR2 is dead weight, as the game remains unplayable for me.  I'll stop by here now and then to keep an eye on things, but the game just isn't worth the frustration right now.  If they fix the issues at some point in the future, I'll take another look at it, but I am not optimistic about the time frame.

I was tempted a few times but I just take a week or so off and it is okay to play again for a bit. I noticed the less I play, the less I run into issues. I know the game is still being fixed and there are still going to be on-going issues so if I do hop to another game in my spare time, this one will likely be shelfed for awhile.

Like others have mentioned, I just take breaks. Sometimes for a few days, other times for a couple weeks. I think the longest I went without playing since I had it was 15 days but normally I just take a few days off from the game and play something else. I haven't had it long enough to shelf it.

Lost most of the posse I played with around Christmas time because of bugs and they haven't played since. Met a few new players this week that seem like the old posse. Been doing lots solo and it's quite nice.

I'd love to be able to play the game. I still check it from time to time to see if it's already playable. But unfortunately looks like rockstar just wanted to get the money and don't care at all about the game.

I had to shelf it because I simply could not get it to run on my laptop after it’s release. Haven’t tried it since. But with me getting ready to build my gaming desktop in the next weekend or two, I probably try it again on the laptop this weekend.

I still haven’t settle for a character design on the PC.

I know folks buy laptops that meet the minimum specs and even exceed that of games they try to run on them.   I also know some laptops can run games that work fine.   .....but what I've noticed over the years is that it seems more people encounter problems trying to run games on laptops than they do on home built PCs for instance that are put together with more standardized components that are known to perform reliably vs. integrated GPUs on a proprietary MB, on-board sound, associated drivers, etc.   

......but who knows.  Laptops themselves are commonly produced within the same ODMs (e.g. Inventec, Quanta, Compal, etc.) sometimes an OTS solution without other design requirements other than to put their customers name on the product.  

I only use laptops these days but only for home business, etc.  (not gaming).  I used to build gaming rigs for that and when I stopped, I switched to PS. 

Good luck on your build Vendetta.  I kinda miss those days sometimes.

Thanks. Spec wise my laptop should run the game. Intel i5, GTX 1050 TI 4GB, and 16GB of RAM. 
 

For the desktop build I have an Intel i7 6700K, GTX 1070 8GB, I believe I have a total of 20GB of RAM. I’ve been slowly procuring these parts over the last three year’s. 
 

I finally got my case last weekend, a Cooler Master H500 so I can start building. Still need to get a storage SSD, monitor, keyboard, mouse, and desk.

Nice.  Does the case come with the power supply or are you going to use one you already have?  What MB are you going with?

I've been out of the loop so long especially since i retired that I'd have to start from scratch with my research if I built one today.

I have a Seasonic power supply but the case doesn’t have one. The motherboard is a MSI gaming board. I’m not sure which model but I think it is a Z170A Gaming M5. 
 

I too have been out of the loop building systems. It’s like starting over for me.
