I already knew this would happen to some extent but at this point even I'm surprised by how many gripes and issues people seem to have with this game despite overwhelming media praise, absurdly high review scores and GOTY awards implying this is some kind of flawless 10/10 game. I find way more value and pay far more attention to opinions from actual players like the ones shared on this page so cheers to you guys for that. This thread is proof yet again that stuff like metacritic and the media in general shouldn't be trusted
I have my gripes and I imagine they echo most of what you've seen online.

I still think its one of the best games I've ever played, I'd even say its better than GTA 5 (despite being much more limited in scope gameplay wise due to the western setting).

Yeah I agree with Spicy. I listed my beefs last page but seriously it is an incredible achievement overall and features some fantastic characterization and writing. I basically lived that character for many hours, it was such an immersive experience and the attention to detail in that game was obsessive. I don't agree with the sentiment that Metacritic/critics in general can't be trusted, RDR2 earns its scores despite not being a perfect game (what is?).

The desert area is made available after you complete the main story.

You can also get there early through a mission glitch, but it's kinda pointless to go early.
