Watch Dogs is Probably the Best Game We’ll See This E3

A rarity this E3: a brand new game. Not a sequel, not a reboot, but a brand new game based on brand new IP. And it looks amazing. Taking place in an open-world city (so, think Grand Theft Auto), players in Watch Dog will have the power to control an entire city's infrastructure via powerful computers that run everything from data records to power lines.

The last of us beat it, easily

@ Disagrees: Open your eyes guys :)

RedDead2115d ago

LoU was impressive too but this was the best game at E3. No not easily. It just was though, the whole car crash sequence was > everything else so far.

hennessey862115d ago

beyond was the most interesting game at e3

Top 3 games of E3

The Last of Us
Watch Dogs

Those 3 games were the best of all 5 conferences, and in no particular order.

The car scene in Watch Dogs was the best moment of the entire show, and the premise is interesting, but overall demo was a bit slow.

The Last of Us was a great demo. It showed just how different this game is from Uncharted which was a huge criticism people were placing on it without having played the game. The game is beautiful, and one of the best demos of the entire show.

Beyond. I loved Heavy Rain, although I had some gripes with it, but Beyond looks like the game I wanted Heavy Rain to be. It was the best trailer of E3 by far, and the later segments shown in the trailer have me highly excited for Beyond since it has a greater emphasis on action.

Halo 4, Tomb Raider, God of War, and some others all looked great, but these 3 take the cake of best of show.

Oh yeah, my eyes are open...and I see a person who thinks that everyone must think like they do.

Beyond looked like a crappy fanfiction about some Mary Sue and her best imaginary friend fighting off an obviously EBIL GUISE S.W.A.T. guy. Explosions and idiocy included, with the cherry of "emotions and deepness" on top. Besides, calling it a game when no gameplay was shown is...stretching it a little bit.

Rayman Legends deserves that third spot instead.

This is one of the best looking games that we've seen on this year's show.

Agreed. The Last of Us just looks like a gritty, violent Uncharted (not a bad thing).

Watch Dogs impressed the hell out of me with its awesome graphics and cool narrative concepts.

Chitown712912115d ago

Personal games that caught my attention and feel like should be considered for best showing at E3 would go something like this:

1). WatchDogs
2). Last Of Us
3). Beyond
4). Zombi-U (dumbass name)
5). Star Wars 1313 (Might consider building a PC to play this one)

LOGICWINS2115d ago (Edited 2115d ago )

Agreed. TLOU reminded me too much Uncharted. Far Cry 3 and Watch Dogs breath some goddamn fresh air in this stifling industry that is becoming overrun with devs they look to impress technically(graphics, physics, and animations), but have lost the desire to revolutionize/innovate.

Even if Watch Dogs' graphics are downgraded on consoles, its still a buy from me.

My top 5

2)Far Cry 3
3)Watch Dogs
4)GOW: Ascension

Chitown712912115d ago

Also Assassins Creed 3, Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, and Dishonored deserve a mention...

Halochampian2115d ago

I may be a bit of a fan but I was also honestly blown away by Halo 4. Brought me back to the CE days of an unknown feeling of being in a new world.

But Watch_dogs really blew me out of the water. Just a great, well thought out looking game.

My top 5 in no particular order:

1) Watch_Dogs
2) Halo 4
3) Last of Us
4) AC3
5) Tomb Raider

Beyond was great looking but couldnt put it on the list just because I hadn't seen any gameplay yet.

"Beyond was great looking but couldnt put it on the list just because I hadn't seen any gameplay yet."

Cage said that was all real time. So it was gameplay.

I'm more excited about Watch Dogs, but I'm sure the graphics had something to do with it.

Definitely getting LoU though, I'm happy there are still a lot of good games coming out in what might be the last holiday season of the current-gen.

snake-OO2115d ago

unfortunately watchdogs will not look like what they showed on consoles. the game was being demoed on a high end PC

Chitown712912115d ago

@Snake: are you with DLB-Network?

snake-OO2115d ago

@chitown yes I am from DLB-network

Cocozero2115d ago

LOU just looked like Uncharted in a different setting.

Watch Dogs was something new and unexpected hence why more people are excited about it.

majiebeast2115d ago (Edited 2115d ago )


Just grasping at straws now.

Nimblest-Assassin2115d ago

4 games blew me away

Watch Dogs

If any of these games win best of e3... Im cool with it

MasterCornholio2115d ago

I pretty much agree with you.

Virtual_Reality2115d ago (Edited 2115d ago )

I had a better impression with the AI and combat of The Last of Us than Watch Dogs.

MysticStrummer2115d ago

It's funny how people are ready to declare Watch Dogs the best game at E3 after the limited presentation it got. Best graphics... yes... best game... it's early, early days. Where are all the people I saw ripping the Last of Us presentation for being too heavily scripted? No one seems to be saying that about Watch Dogs, though it appears to be quite heavy on scripted events. Watch Dogs has amazing potential, but potential means you haven't done anything yet.

Ducky2115d ago

... both WatchDogs and TLOU had a similar length of presentation. I don't see what point you're trying to prove with the 'limited presentation' bit.

dam i thought this was a game about ann robinson taking down cowboy buliders : /

NYC_Gamer2115d ago (Edited 2115d ago )

Watch Dogs was the best and most unique game @E3

Trenta272115d ago

Last of Us looked great, but Watch Dogs nailed it. That was incredible. The whole ending scene with the cars was mind blowing.

Zha1tan2115d ago

Can it not just be agreed that The last of Us and Watch Dogs are two great looking titles instead of this petty human competative attitude were everything has to be compared and there has to be a unanimous "best" game and if there isnt im going to go on N4G and try to reafirm my opinion over other peoples opinions.

Can it.

Im glad I bought a PS3 and a good gaming PC.
