GTA vs Saints Row: Lines in the sandbox…

6aming's Andy Hemphill gives his opinion on two of the biggest sandbox series available, GTA and Saints Row. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Saints Row 4, Xbox 360)

GTA 5 will win.

Like there is an actual contest? Both games are here to stay, millions enjoy both. You don't need to be a genius to realize GTA V will sell more and get better ratings, simply because everyone praises Rockstar like gods.

Doesn't mean it needs to be the only open world game in the world. Saints Row does a wonderful job of filling in the goofiness void that Rockstar left behind in GTA for a more serious game.

Let's be honest, Rockstar had the upper hand for such a long time, there's no competition. Saints Row came out when GTA 4 sold more than any previous GTA games. Saints Row 2 and 3 might have been a tad bit better in my opinion than 4, but that's because it was older than 2 and 3, thus giving them a chance to show that Volition knows a good formula as well. Personally, I really wish Saints Row goes back to the same script writing number 2 had and hopefully this competition with GTA 5 will do exactly just that.

GTAV is beautiful in every way. But Saints Row has a great personality. I'm getting both.

Is this a joke?

Stopped caring about SR series after 2. I'm a big GTA fan (fan since the 2D era), but SR2 has my favorite sandbox city so far. SR3/SR4 seems to destroy what I loved in the SR series. Hopefully GTA V city will be amazing!

The thing is, no one seems to understand the reason Saints Row was fun to play was the overall plot and the ridiculous aspect to it, but also including the overall emotion behind it. The death of *SPOILERS* Carlos was very sentimental and was very memorable,along with the overall dialogue that occurred in between the cast. SR3 is basically about dildo's and hitting your friends with them. It kind of died, which is why I'm looking somewhat forward to 4 and GTA 5. Hopefully, Volition will finally remember what made SAints Row better again after they witness GTA 5.

I really enjoyed SR3 on the PS3. I think both games can stay

How long after GTA V is released do you think it'll pass SR4 in sales? A week? The next day?
xNomaD  +   727d ago
I've pre-ordered both either way. Will play the hell out of them for quite some time.

Def room for both. There very different.
