5 Games That Should Have Been Shown At PAX East 2013

Richard Bailey of TheKoalition writes:
PAX East 2013 has come and gone and while many will agree that the show was great overall, I personally couldn’t help but feel that a few games were M.I.A. during the expo. From highly anticipated titles to games literally weeks away from release, I feel that a lot of publishers may have missed out on a golden opportunity to get their games out and in front of consumers early. Looking into the matter further, I was able to come up with 5 games in particular that could have benefited from having some sort of presence at this year’s PAX East. (Beyond: Two Souls, Defiance, Grand Theft Auto V, PAX East 2013, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Soul Sacrifice, Star Trek, Xbox 360)

"this played to the advantage of Saints Row IV and served as a just reminder that GTA V will have plenty of competition once it drops in September."

Competition...from Saints Row 4

HA

Not even close

If the control is better in GTA V than it was in GTA IV, then Rockstar has no competition whatsoever. Sleeping Dogs, Watch Dogs, Saints Row, doesn't matter. None of them will touch GTA, period.

GTA is one of the most phenomenal games i have ever played. that said, i cant believe people think its just going to blow every other sandbox game out of the water. games like saints row and sleeping dogs have a TON of advantages over GTA 4. unless were talking strictly about sales numbers, you can bet that GTA5 is going to have a whole lot of competition from other sandbox games.

any game that has an auto-aim MULTIPLAYER mechanic, needs serious work....

Idk, i think people rather buy both GTA and for example watchdogs, then skipping GTA for watchdogs.
That's what i'll do at least. Idc they both are a sadbox game, its not like you can only play one

Oh and just so u know, if u mean GTA's multiplayer with the auto aim, you can turn that off, just set your preferences to dissallow.

Finally glad to see someone else agrees that other sandbox games could easily contend with GTA . Saints Row is a game that doesn't take itself seriously and it's that funny, over the top approach that plays to their advantage with fans. With Sleeping Dogs, no one can deny that the combat mechanics are way better in that game then any GTA game currently on the market. The verdict is still out on GTA V until we actually see gameplay which we still haven't seen yet. Saints Row IV had gameplay at PAX East and just by them being there people will remember this game that much more.
