Comparing Watch Dogs to GTA V... Biggest joke and a disrespect to R*.

Watch Dogs looks better when you compare the current gen versions to last gen GTA5. And Watch Dogs has stealth elements.

If you compare open world Vs open world..
GTA V offers significantly more, you can fly, drive, use boats and submarines.

Watch dogs you can drive mainly and jump walls like free running (A little).

They are very different games, but in the open world context GTA wins, because there is soo much more you can do.

Any game going up against gtav is going to fall short they been working on how they want their game world to be since it was 2D how is not being better than them in every category a negative. You can say this about every urban open world game. I would have enjoy LA true crimes, watch dogs, saints row etc if I had this dumb mentality. Sounds like gamers love how every game is becoming a copy and paste job. No wonder why gaming is becoming stale

- Drive-Bys ARE at least possible on Watch Dogs. Play with a friend and one of you can shoot out the passenger window.
Also, it's unnecessary for the main game.

- Yeah, Watch Dogs' licensed music wasn't as good as GTAV's. It's pretty bad actually. But GTAV's music wasn't all that great either.
However I do have to point out that the original music in Watch Dogs is pretty good.

- The reason why Aiden can't go around punching random citizens is because he's supposed to protect people. There are plenty of side missions in Watch Dogs where your goal is to stop crimes. There's not such thing in GTA cause everyone's a psychopath.
I do wich Aiden had a lot more take down animations. I wanted to beat up a certain character by the end of the game, but couldn't because Aiden's only close combat move is a single-button prompt.
Also Sleeping Dogs' hand-to-hand > GTA.

- Yup.

Both of these games try to accomplish completely different things...

Forget the actual quality and individuality of each title. Let's just compare the shit out of them as both are open world and based in a city.

can these games really be compared?

seems like watch dogs isnt really the same type of open world like gta, saints row, sleeping dogs.

i mean its similar, but its almost like comparing gta with infamous or the new gtaV.

just because it is open world does not mean its the same type of game to compare.

I never liked any GTA I've played and haven't played Watch Dogs yet so I can't compare them :/

I can give you a 100 not just 4,
but one thing is for sure, GTA really needs to improve on it's melee attacks, just give me the movement and melee attacks of sleeping dogs and then were laughing, to many times i want to beat someone up but the melee is awful and just ends up being silly, i'm not asking for a full on martial arts style just give me a punch and a kick button which actually flows properly and were sorted,
watchdogs was awful to me never will i buy into that again
