I've never been a guy able to really get down and complete any games 100%. For instance, in the Grand Theft Auto series, there seems to be loose goals like "Find all Stunt Jumps" or "Kill all 100 pigeons". Then there's no real way to track what you've already done or what you're missing.
In contrast, I thought RDR did an excellent job of combating that lost feeling and providing an extra challenge while still allowing gamers to follow a tangible path toward completion. This was the first game of its ilk for which I've been able to fully complete, and it was extremely satisfying. As others said, my only wish is I could go back to the beginning before I'd discovered everything and experience it again.
