‘Watch Dogs’ exclusive: Los Angeles was considered for main setting, says Morin

XMNR: For a major city with a rich history, the number of video games set in Chicago is surprisingly small. The open-world “Watch Dogs” is the first attempt to create a reasonable simulation of the city but it started out just one of many from a list that included mainstay settings like Los Angeles, according to an Examiner interview with creative director Jonathan Morin.

Definitely would have been a different game set in Los Angeles. Streets and everything are wider and bigger, besides GTA V took us there, so I'm glad Watch Dogs will provide a different setting. 5/27 get here now.

I would have prefered something in Europe, there's too many coverage for American cities already.

Amsterdam would have been pretty cool.

Chicago is a leader in surveillance and has over 24,000 cameras in place through out the city. They also have a advanced command center that looks like something out of a movie. I think it was the best setting for this game. The game looks great.

Chicago is cool, not many games set there, yet if u want a city that has cameras, London should be high on the list, its officially has the most surveillance than any city in the world. And its got loadsa cool landmarks that i knw Ubisoft go big on when creating a city.

Nobody cares about London, American cities are globally recognizable.

WOW such a douch you may not pal but other may.
This trend that does need end we need go other country's.

Quote from wiki about London. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
The CCTV User Group estimates that there are around 1.5 million CCTV cameras in city centres, stations, airports, major retail areas and so forth. This figure does not include the smaller surveillance systems such as those that may be found in local corner shops[41] and is therefore broadly in line with the Cheshire report.

LA is so much better than Chicago, but oh well. As long as I don't have to physically be in Chicago it is all good.

Lol minus the weather what makes LA better? Nada, it's dirty and overrated.
incendy35  +   67d ago
