    As opposed to Dundee? Edinburgh is a pretty interesting place, arguably the nicest city in the UK.

    Main point being people do 70-80 hr weeks in other jobs week upon week and don't really complain as much, its normal. Emphasis would be put on the part where people are extremely fucking lucky to be doing something they trained for and enjoy to some extent.
    I've worked 70-80 hours week upon week and let me tell you, it's shit. It may not be shit when you're doing, but it will eventually catch up with you and it will fuck you up massively. Granted, when you're 20 something and you're made of magic and bubble gumę things aren't so bad, but if you get used to it and you consider it normal, I have news for you.

    It is not normal and it should not be normal, nor should anybody get used to it. Dropping standards is bad for everybody around, including the ones coming in after you - your predecessor used to work 80h/week, take it or leave it - this is not desirable in any country, much less in the UK, which is by most standards quite civilised.

    Don't get me wrong, I understand and see your point, but it was the same with EA - horrible crunch times (when those weren't even needed and despite research pointing out that extended crunch times eat into the actual productivity) and displeased relatives, friends and family, anxiety and depression (who cares how much you're making when you can't get the time to spend it) and so on. I'm not even going to go into physical illness that stems from those kinds of hours worked. And I'm unsure how it will look on your CV to have 6 months - 1 year worked under those conditions and leaving before the project was finished due to crippling suicide ideation. Bear in mind the development time for RDR2 was 8 (eight) years. Can you even imagine working even half of that time in constant crunch?
    Honestly I think its pretty mental how detached from reality your perspective is, no-one likes to work 70-80 hrs a week in any job but the reality is they have to. Many, many people work this amount permanently doing the worst fucking jobs you could imagine, multiple jobs. All I am saying is that in the grander scheme of things doing overtime for a deadline in a job you purpose to love is not that bad.

    This failed attempt at a retort is almost as depressing as the blackened walls of Edinburgh.

    Don't think I'm not aware a lot of people are working multiple jobs which total to ridiculous amounts of hours. What I'm saying is you should never treat it as normal. Acceptance is the first step, wtf is next, global 80h/week work weeks for a burger?

    Yes, you can do it, yes, you should do it if there's no other alternative, but one should never even attempt as accepting this as the normal way of things. FGS.
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.
