Yea, I got 100% in RDR on 360, but fizzled out in Act 5 or so of RDR2 on PS4. I was kind of struggling long before finally walking away though, everything kind of felt worse about it aside from visuals and cinematic aspects of production.
I really disliked the shooting and the new health/item system. I found I was rarely coming across quirky random stuff in the world. Like I had so many strings of the same world events back-to-back and rarely any variety. RDR1 pulled me in a bit more there as it felt like I was coming across more interesting stuff. Also, the quests in RDR2 just weren't as interesting. The world exploration felt lacking despite making for pretty screenshots. I took my sweet time looking around randomly here and there and felt rarely rewarded, even by some environmental lore or discovery.
I actually wasn't bothered by the methodical sluggishness of movement and rifling through junk as most of the internet, kind of appreciated it not taking 'gamey' shortcuts there. But the other parts of the game design and progression bothered me.
