Alive Game Zone - A simple comparison of the two most anticipated games of this year, Grand Theft Auto 5 and Watch_Dogs. Both games are expected to do good business and shatter the sales charts and gaming records!
I find it strange to see people deciding between the two, when both are pretty different from each other. GTA has always had the cheeky, fun and humorous aspect to it, and GTA V will be no different. Watch Dogs looks to be doing some impressive things and has scale to suggest it's being optimized for next generation. It's also a lot more serious looking. I'll be getting both, and if Rockstar somehow announce a PS4 version, I'll be getting both for PS4.
GTA 5 ;)
I'm with you, GTA5 for sure. screw watch dogs and their always online moto. "always on, always connected" they say. HAHA
Both of you are fanboys... the truth is we wouldnt know until we play both games...
Why does every modern open world game have to be compared with GTA.
@NathanExplosion Its because Gran Theft Auto is the benchmark for sandbox/open-world games. Hence, with that said, all games from Rockstar games are on another level in terms of quality. Additionally, its Rockstar North that defined the Open World genre with Grand Theft Auto in the first place. However, as "DigitalRaptor" said they can't be compared because although they share the same genre they have completely different focus or direction that each game respected developer are aiming for. I'm just praying that i'll be able to pick up both on the PS4 because GTA V will suit that platform so much with its "SHARE" feature, just imagine all those EPIC moments you wished you could of shown your buddies.
Popularized maybe. But to me, it was Driver 2 that defined open-world games of that kind http://www.youtube.com/watc... But like people have said, they shouldn't be compared in the first place. Other games have different play mechanics, story pacing and overall focus, so having GTA as a benchmark is pointless and unfair to other games which are not trying to accomplish the same. UNLESS a game is actually trying to be a game just like GTA.
GTA V is going to be totally safe. You know it'll be awesome. Watch dogs is probably a bit riskier, but that makes it all the more interesting. I'm interested to see both games when they come out.
ill go with watch dogs first just to see whats it really about... because we all know what gta is really about at the core level.. shooting up hooker & cops.. which i dont think there nothing wrong..
"GTA has always had the cheeky, fun and humorous aspect to it, and GTA V will be no different." GTA IV took itself too serious imho :(
I think the comparison is weird because we don't know that much about either. This article would have made more sense if it waited another week--since GTA 5 will have a huge reveal next week.
Why is this comparison needed? Aside from being open-world titles, the games are entirely different, and both look to be astounding. Here's a tip: Dont compare, just buy both!
It looks like both will be great games, don't see why they need to be compared.
There is no "vs" here. Both games look magnificent and I'll be getting both.
Im gettin both.
Watch Dogs wins because the next GTA will be nothing but GTA4.5. They'll sacrifice fun for realism just like they did with GTA4.
kk Watch Dogs is going to be epic and I personally am going to prefer it out of the two (Judging from what I've seen). But if you want stupid fun go play Saints Row 4.
for me Watch dogs something new in the sandbox world.
I'm getting both. Can't wait to laugh at the comparison video comments on Youtube.
Also getting both, love how you and LOGICWINS are getting disagrees for posting unbiased comments...
Gta 5 because of the gameplay and an established franchise. Watch Dogs is a new franchise kinda reminds me of assassin Creed first game repetitive.
Comparing 2 different games is a waste of time.
People say the comparison is weird because one is totally original and one is completely unoriginal. Fan boy it up.
watchdogs for me
Buying both .. I dont compare good games, even if itll be expensive (:
As much as I'm a fan of GTA series, but in my opinion, WATCH DOGs is more astonishing visually and worth looking forward.
Completely different games. I wouldn't choose which to buy. I am getting both!
The two games I want the most this year, can't imagine not getting both..
Watch dogs will be a great game but GTA gas been shocking the world for more than a decade. If it is a competition, it never started. Both games are must buys though.
