Is Watch Dogs better than GTA 5?

There has been a lot of talk on Watch Dogs, Ubisoft’s latest IP with some claiming it to have saved one of the worst E3 conventions in years but can it compete with the heavyweight from Rockstar? (Dev, Grand Theft Auto V, Watch Dogs)

I shall buy both probably

Watch Dogs isn't made by Square Enix (if "SE" meant it) but Ubisoft. You probably got it wrong with Sleeping Dogs which is indeed published by Square. But anyway, they're only publishing it and the game was formerly part of the True Crime IP which has been a GTA-stlye open world series for quite a while.
PoSTedUP  +   1162d ago
yes, yes i did lol. my mistake, carry on...
hkgamer  +   1161d ago
well sleeping dogs was named something else before it became a true crime title...

Couldn't have said it better myself. Dumb articles needs to stop.

Watch Dogs was running on a high-end PC and it was obviously scripted, it's NOTHING like GTA
Patriots_Pride  +   1162d ago
Its a million timeS better than that piece of donkey poop called GTA 4.

Why does this article say Ubisoft's latest IP?

This is Square Enix's latest IP...

Edit:My bad, read Sleeping Dogs :P

LOL, i read it SLEEPING dogs at first, it's ridiculous how they both use the word "DOGS" stupid names for both games.

it's hardly that stupid . Watch dogs' title fit the theme and plot thus far .

Sleeping dogs seems more random

ladies and gentlemen, i bring you the future of n4g articles.
Baka-akaB  +   1162d ago
future ? has been the past and the present
NastyLeftHook0  +   1162d ago
the past is the present and the future is also, we just only see miniscule amounts of data in our functioning brain.

Oh my! In just a few days, there'd be articles comparing skyrim with need for speed.
PockyKing  +   1162d ago
I'm geussing this author has played through both games, reviewed them and gone back for more to make this choice. Cmon, I understand you want traffic, but write something relevant..

Wow, actually even looked at the article, thing must have taken the writer 5 minutes.

Yes, good game.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1162d ago
No cause i've said it before but GTA is in a league of its own also Watch Dogs looks to be in a league of it's own too so i don't see why you should compare em really cause they are different, just same genre.

That's like that comparison between Infamous and Prototype, both different games just same superhero open world setting.

Also how would we know if one is better than another if they haven't even released yet or barely have any info?

People are just stupid. There so damn dumb, they seem to think because something has an open world....its a GTA clone. Both games have open worlds....yes....thats about it. Why one would even compare them is quite stupid. Its like me comparing NFS Underground to GT4 cause they are both games with cars yet I ignore that they are different genres. Too funny.
Chrono  +   1162d ago
That's a possibility, but I can't decide until I play both.

gta v is better than watch dogs in every way but watch dogs had a better ending, maybe the story too
Xperia_ion  +   1162d ago
Yeah the twist at the end was surprising, there is definitely going to be a sequel.
_-EDMIX-_  +   1161d ago
The people with the disagrees are just way, way too dumb.

GTA is just like Watch Dogs JUST like Burnout is just like GT5 LMFAO!
Subzero200  +   1162d ago
lol it's better than any gta that has come out recently, and the newest ones aren't even better then the ps2 games which in my opinion were the best. besides gta isn't even relevant anymore.

"gta v is better than watch dogs in every way but watch dogs had a better ending, maybe the story too"

are you a moron or just a stupid troll?

It was a joke which I guess you did not get.
unchartedxplorer  +   1162d ago
I would personally choose gta v, judging from the trailer, R* experience and the fact that the world looks awesome.
Watch Dogs is set in the city however, and I have grown a bit tired of city open worlds. Might still buy watch dogs though
OmniSlashPT  +   1162d ago
So a trailer of game (since it was not even playable at E3) is better than the trailer of another game? sounds like some good journalism there.
pwneddemocrat  +   1162d ago
Of course it's better. You can judge that looking at the 9-minute gameplay footage of WatchDogs and the cinematic trailer for GTA V, obviously WatchDogs win.


Seriously? how the hell can people compare two unreleased games? Based on two videos alone? That's why no one would accept that gaming is for mature audience, because these damn morons keep getting into childish arguments.

yes u are a joke

This guy is part of the new wave of internet "badasses". Dont get on his bad side.
0pie  +   1161d ago
I dont even wanna lose my time reading this shit... They actually talk about 2 games who are not out yet.
This is stupid.
_-EDMIX-_  +   1161d ago
Of course its going to be better in terms of animations and what you can do. They are likely going to be able to use more space then what GTAIV or GTAV will be using. My guess would be Bluray.

By default, they will have mroe space. But if we mean the current gen version, then i think they are apples and oranges.

Very similar in that there open world, but thats about it.
palaeomerus  +   1161d ago
Heh. I thought this was about Sleeping Dogs.
mamotte  +   1161d ago
Comparing two games, both of'em have only showed a trailer, and we dont know a single detail about those games.

Next time: we heared about two rumored games from new developers in the industry with no name, is one better than the other one?
Edito  +   1161d ago
Taking what i know and my experiences with GTA i think Watch Dogs will kill GTA the plot, the art style and the freshness of Watch Dogs damn i can't wait... it's just my opinion i never was a big fan of GTA anyway...
Eske  +   1161d ago
"Watch Dogs’ reception have been positive so far, with more than 6 million views on Youtube, nothing should go wrong in this new taste of open world gaming. "

...What does this even mean? This article is just a stub, and a poorly written one at that. It just poses the question in the title at the very end. Should have been flagged and deleted.
