Rockstar Games are infamous for bad PC launches but Red Dead Redemption 2 one has to take the meme cake, regardless of whether it makes fun of the launcher crashing, in-game issues or the misleading system requirements.

Red Dead Redemption 2 finally came to PC, possibly causing some US citizens to derail their attention to the election. Considering the state of RDR2 on PC atm, that may have been for nothing so here is a bunch of memes as consolation.

In case you found yourself enraged at the horrible launch and want a reminder not to rush at Rockstar's titles on day one, there is a creative RDR2-inspired wallpaper that should both make you laugh and cry in agony. We hope we are not helping create a real-life Joker here.

Of course, some players are more persistent than others and if we were fortune tellers, we would say their persistence would pay off when the emergency patch comes along. Until then, this is what their experience will look like .

Those lucky few that managed to get in the game managed to find various issues, such as Arthur Morgan's impersonation of Bud Spencer or the best fireworks display the Wild West has ever seen. Maybe it was an acid trip, we couldn't say.

Naturally, since this is a PC release, one could not leave out the mods. Therefore, here is an approximate image of what the mustangs will look like once people get rid of those pesky errors.

Rockstar Games have released the first gameplay video of Red Dead Redemption 2 that featured a narrator explaining the differences between the first game and the highly anticipated sequel. You can see the entire gameplay video here.

On a serious note, we weren't kidding about the emergency patch. One support agent confirmed Rockstar are whipping something up for the PC players but we hope the meme collection at least alleviated some frustration in the meantime.
