Red Dead Redemption 2: Does the hype hold up?

When Red Dead Redemption 2 was released in October 2018, it was greeted with multiple 5-star and 10/10 scores on websites such as Games Radar and IGN. At the time I’m writing this, it holds a 7/10 on Steam. Right now, it’s April 2020. The game has been out for a year and a half. It’s seen quite a few updates and online play was added. I’ve spent the last six or seven months diving deep into the game on my PS4 to try and find out if now, 18 months after it was released, does it live up to the hype?
