Although I've been playing games for a long time and have been on the PS3 for a few years, Red Dead Redemption is the first game I've really tried online multiplayer with (and I love it). Anyone else in the same boat?
I've thought about it with previous games, but was always discouraged from trying because of the negative impression from what I read about griefers, rampant cheating, etc. I've experienced very few problems with this kind of activity in RDR and have been having such a blast I just recently started trying GTA IV multiplayer as well (I finished the single player and expansions long ago). Although that's been fun, experiencing that makes me appreciate how much more immersive and polished RDR multiplayer is.
