Why Saints Row and Grand Theft Auto Shouldn’t be Compared

It has been a common trend among gamers to compare two games of specific genres. When players compare these games they usually take a side and fight till the death defending their favored title. The games sometimes can even take emotional tolls on their fans because they fight so hard to defend them against
what is presumed to be their competitor. Two of the most common games thrown into the everlasting argument are Saints Row and Grand Theft Auto... (Grand Theft Auto, PC, PS3, Saints Row, Xbox 360)

On a personal note im more of a saints row person... not saying GTA sucks just saying saints row is THE BEST.

Loved GTA until 4. I went and got Saints Row 2 after the massive appointment that was gta4 and it was so much better. I wont be buying GTA5 anywhere near release until im sure they fixed it and returned to its roots. If it looks to be anything like 4 i wont buy it at all.

My favorite of the saints row series was by far saints row 2, im afriad they are loosing a bit of their cool with SR3. as for GTA i was a die hard fan until 4 now im so ify on 5.

this is funny because the majority of things in the sr series are copy/paste from gta past hell sr2 story is the same as gtasa just altered and told differently. But people will still believe sr1 was the first sanbox game and the internet was created in 2005.

i agree,these franchises shouldn't be compared because both offer different type of experiences.grand theft auto is my type of sandbox game though.

YOu get to many people comparing games now adays that are so different. I dont see what the problem is with liking both games :)

I enjoy both of them for different reasons.

GTA: You beat ppl with bats
SR: You can beat ppl with huge dildos

GTA: Is a serious game
SR: Is one hilarious parody

The list goes on, on how different the games are.
The only similarity is the Open-World game play(the main one i can think of).

GREAT FREAKING TITLE THEY SHOULDNT BEEEEEE COMPARED
AllroundGamer  +   976d ago
yeah you can't compare them, cause one of them is about fun and one about realism... (at least with GTA4 which imho failed) If GTA5 will be like 4, than i definitely pass :p

The reason i wont compare the 2 is cause SR3 is more about fun than being real and thats what alot of ppl including reviewers failed to understand but to me SR3 made GTA4 look like a joke to be honest and im not going for GTA5 unless im convinced of some key points

how are you going to say that SR franchise has nothing go GTA and why are you comparing a old game to a new one dumb ass
9thWonder  +   976d ago

I love SR3 but SR2 is still closer to my heart.

GTA IV was really overrated IMO and almost took a step back in terms of innovation. I have much more faith in the next GTA.
