20 minutes into free roam and Im done. Started a stranger mission to deliver mail and got attacked by a posse. I couldnt retrieve the mail bag because it was around their location. I managed to kill two of them at one point and ran for the bag but got killed by a third member. By the time I respawned, they did too and it felt like Groundhog Day after 5 deaths. I stopped fighting to write this post and they got bored after a couple of more kills and left. By that time my quest timer had depleted and Im left in the middle of nowhere having to travel back to Blackwater to pick up a quest.
Im not gonna blame the game though because its tailored for this kind of gameplay. Its just not what I wanna be doing.
