How Watch Dogs saved E3 2012

CalmDownTom says, "Fortunately something magical happened in the midst of maelstrom at E3 this year. The one beacon of hope that shone across the convention floor and ignited the flames of debate around the world. “What is this last hope” you ask? It’s Ubisoft and the new IP Watch Dogs." (Culture, PC, Watch Dogs)

Yea Watch Dogs was impressive at E3 but my personal favorite at E3 was The Last of Us demo. I'm just more excited cause that game we will actually be able to play soon while i think Watch Dogs will be for next gen cause it looks like that.

Nothing could really compare with GTA cause it's in a genre of itself.

It was all about Halo 4 for me.

Watch_Dogs looked great, and I can't wait to see more and get my hands on it. It was a big, pleasant surprise, but I don't think it "saved" E3.

A heavily scripted demo running on a high end PC saved E3? Gaming is in trouble. The coolest thing about Watch Dogs was the reveal of multiplayer at the end of the demo. The rest of the gameplay was nothing unusual, but people went nuts over the eye candy.

I'm sorry you don't know what a demo is.

This was doing nothing more then demonstrating what can be for the future for gaming. Better AI, better animations etc. And in terms of "scripted" i didn't see much of that other then the person playing the demo clearly following a "script" on what to do to show gamers what they will be playing in the near future.

People going crazy over "eye candy" is what gets this industry money idiot. Gaming is clearly about playing the game, but part of that game is immersion, being able to play a game that looks so flawless that you forget your playing a game. THATS what great gaming can do.

Weather you like it or not, its part of the evolution of gaming. Its even funnier because the game showed so many features in terms of gameplay that really opened up possibles for what to expect in the game in terms of control the player has over the world. JUST him turning the lights on all green was enough to keep you guessing in terms of what else can be controlled in this world.

The AI was doing a lot too, people screaming that there hurt after the car accident, climbing out of windows etc. More ram and disk space can provide such an experience because everything can make it in the game, nothing will be left on the cutting room floor so to speak.
