Saints Row: The Third is Better than GTA IV

You probably looked at the title of this article, raged furiously, and went straight to the comment section before even listening to what I have to say. Or you’re a well-mannered individual that enjoys a good debate.

This article is based upon the original game, for console users as well. Not everyone can play with mods :)

GTA4 has a good story, likeable characters, expansive world, good music (SR3 has a terrible radio), dialouge is great, clothing options are better, side mini-games/activities are more thought out, etc.

The only thing I think SR3 excels in is the fun factor, the game has great gameplay, and cool toys to mess around with, but the lifeless and uninspired city with lacking customization options don't really pull me in.

Funny how we are talking about this and SR4 was just revealed. Now they've got super powers. Looks cool but I hope it's not dragged down like SR3 was.

@Hufandpuf,

"The only thing I think SR3 excels in is the fun factor"

..Call me old fashioned, but this is why I play games.

GTA IV was a good game, I suppose - but it was just so...forgettable for me. I liked the idea of a darker story, but the characters weren't very memorable. They had their moments, but the game lacked any kind of style or sense of humor. At least in comparison to the other games in the series. Saints Row's sense of humor or style may not appeal to everyone, but at least it HAS a style.

Hufandpuf. There's this thing called opinion...that is yours, realize the difference please before you spout your opinions as facts. I'm also confused at "The only thing I think SR3 excels in is the fun factor"....Well isn't fun supposed to be the point of every single video games out there(if not every piece of media out there)? If you have fun in a certain game, what's it matter if all you do is look at 4 walls, YOU still had fun with it.

But as I was saying, all the stuff you listed for GTA IV, I feel the complete opposite. The story was snore worthy, the characters were annoying, the world IS big, but with DICK to do in it. The music I don't even remember, the dialogue was fine, the clothes were GOD awful, that's the first time I ever heard anyone like the clothing options in that game, they were bare bones. The activities were freaking horrible, bowling and darts that don't function half as well as a flash game on my phone is not my idea of good.

So these are MY opinions, doesn't mean either game is better or worse, just my opinion is what matters to me. Saints Row has S#!TT3D on GTA ever since 2 came out in '08.

Saints Row is Garbage compared to GTA

Keep in mind, it was Rockstar's first GTA on NEW CONSOLES... while Saints Row already had 3 on Xbox 360 and 2 on PS3... Saints Rows are like Call of Duty, the games looks and feels the same, while every GTA just feels different

Not gonna lie, Saints Row the Third was a fun game, but QUALITY was no where close to GTA IV ! NO Where.. GTA IV was amazing except it got boring after players finished the game, Rockstar noticed that and is going back to make GTA V just like San Andreas, fun and lots of things to do... I know GTA V is gonna be amazing, every single Rockstar games is AMAZING

it's not really THAT hard to better GTAIV! there are many MANY games that are better than GTAIV this gen!

LOGICWINS1230d ago (Edited 1230d ago )

I played SR3 with a timed trial. Too over the top for me. Maybe I played it with the wrong mindset.

RavageX1230d ago

Nah. Now if you had said SR2 I would have agreed. SR3 is an empty shell of what the series was.

Awful story/characters, weak activities, lifeless city. Even the customization took a step backwards. The sole improvement was graphics.

It does have the plus of having co-op, but that's really it.

Sad to say that SR4 is looking like a disappointment too.

LOGICWINS1230d ago

SR2 was better than GTA1V IMO. It actually had worthwhile indoor environments and story was much more entertaining that GTAIV's.

Septic1230d ago

Agreed. SR2 was great fun and I had one of the funniest moments ever in it courtesy of its brilliant co-op campaign.

Outside_ofthe_Box1230d ago (Edited 1230d ago )

No it's not. Not a single SR game is better than ANY of the GTA games, period.

Brownghost1230d ago

GTA 4 was really overrated.

BigStef711230d ago

And SR2 was way better than the both of them
