Is Watch Dogs Ready To Compete Against the Appeal Of Grand Theft Auto V

All it takes is the swipe of a finger. For Watch Dogs to take you to a world were you gain control this system the Central Operating System (CTOS) and it controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city of Chicago residents.

No, it's ready to stand on it's own, as a completely separate game to GTA5...or any other open world game.

Damn, wtf is up with the CONSTANT comparisons? Get's so annoying.

TheTowelBoy1685d ago

I don't get it either Luke. It's like just because this is a AAA title, is sandbox, and in a city everyone calls out "Clone! Clone!" But the FPS genre can be ABSOLUTELY FILLED with said problem and it can be overlooked.

GarrusVakarian1685d ago (Edited 1685d ago )

To be honest, it happens way too often, in all genres.

Halo has a gun on the does Killzone! ZOMG, FIGHT TO THE DEATH!!! THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE !!!!1111

I just realised you called me by my real name, haha, that threw me off.

Yeah I especially hate the comparisons between Xbox One and PS4... they are annoying also :P

But in regards to the topic at hand yes I agree Watch Dogs doesn't need to be compared against GTA 5 they are totally different Open World Games... I remember when Saints Row was just declared a GTA clone when it first was released and now look at it... it is a Open World Game in its own right. Im sure Watch Dogs we'll do really well... and it is the start of very promising new IP from UBI, now just have to wait for The Division.

Yes agreed the same could be said of the FPS Genre...
Call of Duty make the same game every year and that always goes overlooked and given great reviews from IGN and Gamespot etc.

Agreed. But still I think a good comparison could be made with another dog, the sleeping one.

Both have a quite serious tone. More focus on the story and missions than on random mayhem. No over the top stuff.
You switch the mafia theme for totalitarism, and melee for fighting, then the games get closer.

I expect something on the Sleeping Dogs level. Not groundbreaking, but very, very good, IMO.

Is Watch Dogs ready to stand against the appeal of Sleeping Dogs/Saints Row? Come on, isn't this a trope now? Let Watch Dogs be its own entity.

Watch Dogs appeals to me, and GTA never did.

porkChop1686d ago

It's not competing. GTA V launched last year on last gen systems. GTA V DLC isn't launching any time soon. Will have zero impact on Watch Dogs.

Massacred1685d ago

Undoubtedly these comparison will continue. Modern setting open world gaming as its finest.

randomass1711685d ago

Such a shame. Some open world games are nothing alike. Just Cause 2 for example...
