Ludicrous Saints Row IV Revels in Its Own Insanity | Wired

Wired: Is it easier to go low-brow than high-brow? Are ridiculous games like Saints Row IV discouraging to the artists trying to tell serious stories with their games? There is a method to the madness: By so totally abandoning any last vestige of reality, Saints Row feels more consistent than “realistic” games.

The story is too old to be commented.

Just picked this up and I'm loving it!

If you're not uptight and can accept that there can be other open-world games outside of GTA, you'll love it. The addition of super powers, specifically sprinting and jumping, totally makes open-world travel a pleasure instead of a tedious endeavour. I absolutely hate getting into a car and driving to markers on the map, only to clip a cop car and then have them chase me so I have to lose them to start a mission.
