    I'm playing. I'm several hours in and have stuck to Chapter 2. I'm enjoying just hunting and fishing and doing the occasional side quest.

    I'm playing.

    Got the book.

    I feel like I'm taking a class to just play the game. The book is so damn big I'm expecting a test at the end. :lol:

    I've been playing it, really enjoying it too. The detail is amazing, and so is the game play. I shot a guy in one of the saloons in Valentine, a few game days later was back in the town, saw the guy. He was missing the arm I shot him in.

    A few of the guys I work with, we're all playing the game. We're all having a lot of fun with it. If you're still early in the game, and come across a snakebit guy, suck out the poison. You'll see him again in Valentine, he'll buy you any gun you want at the gun shop.

    Bought the game on pre-order, from Best Buy. It was the special edition, normally $79.99, I've bought enough in the last year that I'm Elite Plus so had a special offer on it at $59.99, with 20% Gamer's Club also, so it was $47.99.

    Also has a good number of references and Easter Eggs to Red Dead Redemption.

    Made it to chapter three. Found the money stump with endless cash. Robbed a train and just wondering around. Had to take a break though.

    I've been playing this for about a month now. I beat the game about a week ago. Probably the best story I've ever experienced from a video game, with one of the top three protagonists in any video game. This was on par with really well done cinema and TV, but with a greater depth and breadth of detail. The writing was surprisingly good, the voice acting was surprisingly good. But more than that, the controls were (mostly) easy to use and learn, and the attention to detail was more than what I was expecting. Even after beating the game, I've only encountered a handful of the hundreds of animals, hundreds of plants, hundreds of weapons, dozens of side quests, and dozens of random NPC encounters. I'm still playing the game just to complete most of those and explore the remaining parts of the map. There's no way I'm going to find every animal, but I'm content to at least hunt all of the legendary animals.

    NPC animals are just as fun as NPC humans:

    Pro-tip: the game is super fun playing in a Grizzly Bear hat and sporting mutton chops the whole time:

    Also, just god damn what a beautiful game:
