First time Red Dead - Normal or Hardcore?

#1limesqueezePosted 4/27/2013 5:11:24 AM
Sorry, I would post this on the Red Dead board, but it seems to be quite slow over there.
I just bought Red Dead Redemption GOTY. I've never played the game before, but when I fire it up it asks if I want normal or hardcore mode? Which should I start with? I generally play games on harder mode if available, cause I'd rather have a challenge. But I don't want it to be crazy hard. Advice?

Do normal, why stress over a game after all.

Because some people want to at least try to use their brain

game is not that punishing and you can always tweak settings to make it more manageable.

Why not start at the hardest and see how it turns out?

This.


Modern brain usage:
01: Start game.
02: Shoot anything that moves.
03: Is it still alive?
04: If yes, GOTO 02.
05: Move to next area, GOTO 02.

If the enemy requires more bullets to be taken down, then it requires more loops and a higher brain activity.

I was talking about games in general, he did not say why stress over RDR or even this game. Instead he said a game which could mean he thinks that way for all games
