Watch Dogs: 3 Reasons It’ll Be Better Than GTA 5

"Ubisoft have been on a decent roll this past year. Far Cry 3 ended 2012 with a big bang whilst Assassin’s Creed 3 was still a decent game. Now they’ve announced Assassin’s Creed 4, which looks REALLY interesting." | (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360)

could be....Watch Dogs looks awesome!
mcstorm  +   1071d ago
I think this game looks amazing. As I've said before on here im not a fan of the gta games. I don't know why I just can't get into them. I also tried red dead and could not get into that but so far this game and the new Lego city look like they could be the two games like gta style that do it for me. Can't wait to get them both this year.

and here I thought one of the reasons was he played a bit of the 2 games and he came to the conclusion afterwards , how foolish of me.
HammadTheBeast  +   1071d ago
I think they're completely different games, and this comparison sucks.
mcstorm  +   1070d ago
I love how I get 3 Disagrees for saying this game looks amazing. Just because I don't like GTA dose not mean im a hater people it just means I don't like the game just like how I don't like Lost Planet or Resident Evil 5 and 6.

I think GTA 5 is overrated, series hasn't advanced a bit, it needed some rpg elements, some business and buying shops involved, recruiting members and sending them on missions.

Instead it's the same 13 years old game with some tweaks.

Did u play San Andreas? It has all of that
imtheman2013  +   1071d ago
You just described Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood...

GTA 5 is advancing; three playable characters with interconnected story lines. New, heist style missions. Plus, knowing Rockstar, that'll be just the tip of the iceberg for this GTA. Say what you want about Rockstar and GTA, but they know how to make a fun game, and it is definitely advancing.

"I think GTA 5 is overrated"

The game is not out yet, therefor you have not played it so how can you determine whether or not it's overrated?

If they make gta 5 like San Andreas/ Red Dead Revolver it's a wrap. Watch Dogs looks great with all the gadgets you can use. I think what sets GTA series a part from everything else is you can just dive in and start doing crazy things.

The music is great and every GTA game has crazy characters to interact with.
Watchdogs might be to technical for some.
grailly  +   1071d ago
I hope it'll be as great as we think! ubisoft is kind of uneven when it comes to the quality their open world titles, they range from rubbish to great.
solidt12  +   1071d ago
Watch Dogs 4 will be even better!! you just wait and see I tell you.
007Bond  +   1071d ago
NO GTA is consistently amazing, Watch dogs is being way over hyped.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   1071d ago

I wish Watch Dogs the best and it does look awesome but GTA is also Godzilla.

It's all going to depend on the story mood. Does the protagonist have an interesting story - to guide you in the open world?

Watch Dogs does look King Kong... but some people see Godzilla, Win and some people see King Kong, Win.

Not sure why, but far more psyched about GTAV. Even though it's a brand new IP, I feel like I've seen Watch Dogs before...
josephayal  +   1071d ago
watch dogs is way ahead of gta v
NYC_Gamer  +   1071d ago
I'm not gonna say what game is better until play them both
Oschino1907  +   1071d ago

All I kept thinking while reading the article was Bryant Gumbel in "Gumbel 2 Gumbel Beach Justice" going "mmhmm, mmhmm, mmhmm, mmhmm, etc."

This entire article is an assumption based on speculation. There's absolutely no way to know if one will be better than the other. We have watched about 5 minutes of gameplay from Watch Dogs and zero gameplay from GTA V, not to mention the fact that no one has actually played either game. I'll reserve judgment until I play both.
360ICE  +   1070d ago
I don't think it's being implied that the author knows which one is going to be better. That would be a subjective judgement anyway, unless we're presented with some sort of criteria for meassuring how good games are (no such thing, really).

It's given that it's speculative. If people need to be told that, they need to pass 5th grade.
Jek_Porkins  +   1071d ago
"Better" is such a subjective word to use, it means different things to different people. Some might enjoy Watch Dogs more, some might enjoy GTA4 more. It's all relative to say the least, I mean we've gotten to the point where we pick and choose the way to judge a game, sales no longer count, and how the game scores only seems to matter when it's a suits someones argument.

Both look good from what we've seen, GTA games are always fun, Watch Dogs looks new and interesting and it's on next gen consoles.
R_aVe_N  +   1071d ago
I am a lot more excited for Watch Dogs than I am for GTA5. I really have no interested in a new GTA game. Ubisoft have done a great job this gen. Watch Dogs look really well thought out, and a breath of fresh air. GTA to me has just gotten where everytime I see the game I get the "Been there, Done that feeling". That is the reason I loved Red Dead so much it was new. Even though it was just GTA with Horses lol I don't expect the GTA fans to agree with me and that is fine. It is just how I feel on those games in general.

Sure they're both open world and based in cities but otherwise they look like two completely different games.
MrDead  +   1071d ago
It is a dumb comparison
Swiftcricket  +   1071d ago
^ This. I don't feel like these are really direct competitors and I'm looking forward to both of them.

Because GTA4 Sucked!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Derekvinyard13  +   1071d ago
1 of them sucked out of the 6 they made, I liked gta 4
smashcrashbash  +   1071d ago
So far Watchdogs just looks like GTA with a cellphone that controls stuff.So i am not sure what is the big excitement is about. I went just like any GTA. Chase down a guy, jump in any car you want, have a shoot out with the police etc.with a single gimmick. Not sure how it is better then GTA despite people who keep on saying it.Watchdogs just looks different then GTA but it is still basically GTA. You are going to have to better then just looks different.

4 is incredibly boring, so I wouldn't be shocked.

Buzz7S  +   1070d ago
I love how you got disagreed with. Fanboys are out in force today!

GTA IV wasn't all that. It rode the wave of GTA III and other releases. GTA IV compared to GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas, it was a huge disappointment.

Bring on the disagrees. Just confirming to me how confused you really are about your choice in game.
Blastoise  +   1071d ago
GTA V will be ten times better than this game.
UnHoly_One  +   1071d ago
I'm sure GTA 5 will be great, but I'm far more interested in Watch Dogs.

I just tend to have more fun with these types of games when they are a little more "Sci Fi" than reality.
Kran  +   1071d ago
Here's me:

I'm not super psyched for GTA V purely because the series is getting a little knackered now and overhyped.

I am a little bit psyched for Watch_Dogs, and no doubt I'll be keeping my eye out for it.

That was just my opinion so don't go out on one.

But why are we comparing the two? Because they're open world? Both games have their own style in gameplay, so why are we comparing?

Why compare both games. Why not just buy both, like ill be doing.

I dont get why every game has to be compared to another, with stupid articles like '5 reasons X game will be better than Y'

Just get both, and if you cant afford both then just wait for a price drop. Games dont disappear from sale after release.
LOL_WUT  +   1071d ago
GTA5 > Watch Dogs, there I said it. ;)
superterabyte  +   1071d ago
Doesn't matter which ones going to be better people will not care. They will be too busy playing wonderbook.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   1071d ago
We don't know very much about either game tbh. Regardless, I'll be enjoying both games when they come out.
i8urCAKE  +   1071d ago
Now i won't say GTA V is better but please don't say Watch Dogs is. ""it's the same 13 year old game"" bitch please, GTA V is around 6 years in development so don't be saying it's the same crap. Why even compare the 2 games...
DAS692  +   1071d ago
Neither of them have been released. STFU.
Yodagamer  +   1071d ago
Other than the fact their open world, i don't see how they are comparable. They are both trying to do different things
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   1071d ago
Boo Yoda!
Stop being Wise and "Intelligent" and go to the darkside... will never bring balance to the N4G Force!

GTA will be far better
Yukicore  +   1070d ago
Watch Dogs will be awesome, interesting game. But I highly doubt that anyone ever will beat the freedom and laughter a Grand Theft Auto game brings.

I have just lost hope for that, every time a open-world game similar to GTA is about to come out, articles like this pop up.

Rockstar games is just the best, they're not commercial, they can realize their ideas, they have amazing designing skills and have been the closest to making a "perfect" game than anyone else. Just deal with it. I love you R*
t3gamenews  +   1070d ago
why i think watch dogs is better that gta?
& i hoping rockstar is reading this..
its releasing on wii u...
there not afraid like devs of gta 5 is to release there gome on a nintendo console a next gen one too being said.

any dev can release a game on 360/ps3 now days. >.>
Truthandreason  +   1070d ago
I hope both are great, I have high hopes for GTA 5 after Red Dead, although Watch Dogs has me more blindly excited due to next gen visuals.
Nevers0ft  +   1070d ago
As far as I'm concerned Watch Dogs will be better... Because it's the only one I can play on my Wii U :(
profgerbik  +   1070d ago
I think Watchdogs will get old fast, I really do. I just have some weird feeling it will become very repetitive with the hacks and so on.

We will see I suppose.
