yeah not really. i'm sure the narrative elements don't line up 100% anyway.

as an aside, there's some juicy stuff about the pinkertons in the last (and amazing) david grann book, "killers of the flower moon"

i think this focus on "achievements" runs counter to marston's character. for instance i don't do any of the bounty hunts. what the fuck do i care? i'm basically a criminal myself. i just want to find william williamson.

I think this might be up there with Witcher 3 for me - just so cathartic and immersive.
On the other hand, I met my brother for a drink last week and he told me he got sexually assaulted in this game. I won't go into further detail but it was fairly graphic.

That happened to a friend of mine and he went back to see if it would happen again but the NPC isn't interested in you any more after the first time.

Yeah my brother said he went back and killed the guy in some elaborate manner.

my wife got knocked out and picked up in a fireman's carry by some rando other player (presumably an 11 yo boy) but she pressed the Die button before they got wherever he was taking her. The Die button seems urgent and key.

also a lot of racism online, no surprise: https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/15/18183843/red-dead-online-black-character-racism
after dipping my toe in the water in both GTA online and RDR online, i have learned my lesson and will never participate in a rockstar game's online mode ever again.
