@XG247: So we spoke to the game's Lead Designer, Scott Phillips, and he pretty much said that Saints Row is now the game that people really want.
I'm not one of those guys that call every sandbox game a gta clone but saints row IS a gta clone. They admitted themselves that their franchise was born from gta's over the top gameplay style. And now that gta has decided to move on and push the sandbox genre to new heights, saints row is just ripping off their previous play style and all the things that made gta successful and calling it their own. They even have the nerve to tell people to 'forget gta'! Volition should be begging rockstar not to sue them for copyright.
they will be watching close to figure out whats the next idea they could steal from the GTA franchise
With GTA V in development I'd love to see how Saints row will do. Especially as GTA will be much larger than RDR, and that was enormous. R* confirmed GTA V is their 'biggest game ever'.
What is Saints Row ?
“Saints Row is the game that people really want” LMAO
GTA vs Saints Row rivalry? This gon be good.
It's always healthy to have a sibling rivalry :P
Wait for EA to cotton on and then they'll release their own take on this 'genre'.
Already did. Called The FailFather. It failed...just like it's name.
"True Crime: Streets of LA is the game Nobody Wants" mercenaries, Just Cause, Scarface the Game,
sue what? so Id should sue EA,Activision etc. Polyphony should sue Turn 10?? Saints row is what GTA used to be fun
GTA4 was fun for me and many others.....if you like to around with non focused story/gameplay and pick up dildos then fine buy saints row by all means......i am happy that R* will be taking the more realism approach in 5 while letting the silly stuff be optional.
I play video games to escape from the real world.
"i am happy that R* will be taking the more realism approach" Have fun bowling/playing darts/going on virtual dates/hanging out with virtual friends then.
they lost a huge chunk of respect when they said "forget about gta" LoL
I agree. I am one of the people that want to see CoD crash and burn and I love Battlefield. I don't believe the two can peacefully coexist. But I did think that Saints Row and GTA could. No more. I want this silly garbage to burn with CoD and Bobby Kotick. No one insults my GTA! >:(
i agree with u but the thing is I love CoD LOL
two different types of game imo Saints Row is over the top action with an arcade style and goofy mini-games, characters GTA is a more realistic take. why not get both?
I know I am anyway! :)
*gasp* but according to most gamers logic what you're saying is inconceivable.
Two different types of games? Not really, Saints Row is the same thing just not as good and more juvenile. Also, Saints Row is best summed up by EGM as a "Soulless version of GTA". The city just feels like it's there for me to pillage and murder but not much else. Your main character is just a homicidal maniac and nothing more. After playing The Ballad of Gay Tony there is really no reason to ever go back to Saints Row. Although I admit that airplane sequence in the third game looked kind of fun...it was only mildly ruined by the main character's douchiness.
I have to disagree, they are as of now two different games. The first two Saints Row games were the same but like Wizziokid mentions one is more realistic while the other is more arcadey. It'll be like comparing NBA 2K12 with NBA Jam. The only thing that's the same from the footage I've seen of SR3 is that it's open world, set in a more or less modern city, you're a criminal. Everything else is different. The closest comparison would be for SR3rd to San Andreas given than San Andreas along with the awesome story had room for silliness as well but even then the silliness in SR3 is way off the charts in comparison.
Yeah, they're completely different games by this point. Can't complain mind.
I can play both. I am not forced to choose one of them
Gta for adult story and nothing else or sc for its over the top story, crazy gameplay and tonnes of content.... mmm hard choice NOT people can call it how they like but the bottom line is sc is doing what the people want and what r* did before they went pushing a movie sandbox game, with no decent side content BUY BOTH if you love sandbox games
Rockstar innovate, Volition Copy.
Saints Row is personally more fun for me.
co-op mode in sc2 was epic, so many laughs and crazyness, sc3 co-op will be even better..
I hope Volition doesn't turn to mudslinging against GTA now...come on just release it and let the games speak for themselves.
I want saints row... but given the choice... GTA edges it.
sr is good but gta is the king
IF GTA v is the same as GTA 4 then yes Saints row is better
I couldn't agree with Trainz more, volition reeks of butthurt because Rockstar decided to announce GTAV now and Saints Row 3 has been forgotton. Rockstar innovate, Volition rip off and try to pass as their own. Wake up Volition, your game is doing things Rockstar already perfected years ago.
Don't know about 'the people' but Saint's Row is certainly the one that I really want. Looking forward to GTA V as well though, especially if that rumour list is true!
Lol, I can't believe the hate. Why do most of u even game? Just to fit in or to feel included? What happened to the gamers that play games to have fun? While I realise that term is subjective, catering to my virtual friends needs can hardly be qualified as fun. And the fun part is as a gamer there is no need to pick sides, u can play both! Some of u guys real life must really suck with all that needless hate inside.
There's not really much of a rivalry here. GTA is simply light years ahead when it comes to just about everything; graphics, physics, depth and detail, storytelling, dialogue, multiplayer, and so on. The production values and polish of Rockstar's games are pretty much unrivaled.
I really wanted to love GTA lV but just got board eventually . It was brilliant no doubt but It was like talking to a really smart person with no sense of humour , In fairness there was lots of humor but it was kind of inaccessible , you couldn't just jump into the game for an hour or two and get a chuckle .................. San Andreas was the one with the magic, a real sense of humor and I think Rockstar realizes that in spades ..... the trailer looks like a blast . .....Ok perhaps there will be no rubber dildo to club old ladies with but I think I can live without that .
Why the hell can't people just enjoy both!? GTA has now gone a realistic route, with more of a "mature" attitude to the game, to which I enjoy. Saints Row is now over the top, chaotic fun, which I also enjoy! I've got SR3 pre-ordered, and I probably will do the same with GTAV. Simple as that...
The sales will show what the fans really want
