I play a lot of coop. Right now, there are 3 different games I’m playing with 3 different streamers. This is on top of the main campaign I’m currently playing in Red Dead Redemption 2. Since I play mostly on the weekend, it’s a busy 2 days. This past weekend, 2 of those coop streams were cancelled, as one person had a horrendous work schedule for the weekend and the other was doing something MUCH more fun. To fill some of that missing time, I decided to just add an extra stream of RDR2.
Don’t get me wrong, RDR2 I a very, very fun game but it doesn’t hold a candle to coop play. If you haven’t tried it yet, grab a friend and do so.
The point of all this is to say I discovered something amid the second RDR2 stream. I MUST have variety. I think Odyssey did that to me as I played a lot of it over the course of months and it became a grind. That’s why I haven’t played the 2nd DLC yet (though I will I’m sure). Thinking about it this week I’m not sure I could play just one game at a time anymore, even though I love watching other people do it. To be honest, the only game in the last year and a half I’ve been able to play for hours and hours and never get tired of was Far Cry 5.
I suppose in the end this means I’ll need to keep another game on standby in the event I need to fill another stream. Not a bad problem to have!
