    Some quick math on the points system, for anyone interested:

    The Steam coupon ($5 off for me, though it might vary by region) is 5000 points. There are six 100 point quests available, with a minimum of 13 more daily quests (assuming only one per day).

    If they are worth 100 points each, that means 1900 points are available without spending any money. That leaves 3100 points to get the coupon, and at their exchange rate of $1 = 100 points, you'd have to spend $31 to get $5 off. Not a terrible deal, especially given that $31 goes a long way in the sale.

    I might just post a whole other topic asking about it, but I'll try here first:

    Is Red Dead Redemption 2: Special Edition worth it at $60?

    The first Red Dead Redemption is probably the console game I have played most. If I remember correctly, I played through the singleplayer portion of the game something ridiculous, like nine times.

    I seriously doubt I will even touch the multiplayer portion of Red Dead Redemption 2. I didn't bother with it at all in the first game and never really got into the multiplayer bits of Grand Theft Auto IV or V either.

    So, my main concern is how Red Dead Redemption 2's singleplayer experience compares to the first game. Is it just as good? Better? Will I find myself similarly drawn into it as I was with the first game?
