A new Saints Row game has been announced for 2020. It's probably time for Deep Silver and Volition to just leave the series alone.
Speak for yourself, GTA V while an amazing technical achievement, went too far into "realism" and killed a lot of the fun the series once had. Now that saints row is being teased, im more excited than ive ever been for a saints row game and i LOVED 1&2 (and to a lesser extent liked 3).
I think Vice City, San Andreas and the stories games had the best vehicle feel and physics etc for fun, like being able to stand on top of cars and even flip them over. In Saints Row I found it really tough to flip cars, it was almost as if the road was magnetic pulling the car down.
Yeah vehicle physics were never saints rows strong suit, hopefully the new one is better
Are you joking? Gta iv had the best vehicle physics. Gta v was huge fun and wasn't too realistic. It got the balance right. What gta needs is better AI and shooting and more open.mossions. the missions are too short, linear and too many checkpoints. Same with rdr2. There is room for saints row. There's not enough gta-like games. Look at all the dogs and shooters but there's few franchises similar to GTA so more the better because currently there's nothing in that genre that comes close to competing with Rockstar.
Went to far in realism?? No such thing imo..
GTA v went to far back into ludicrous territory while going for realism the ability to control your cars angles in the air was just a bad design choice. GTA IV was way more realistic imo
You could always control the angles of your car since GTA III, and while in some aspects you're right, in others not so much, why does the character automatically go ragdoll if the ground is more than 20ft below them even if the gap im jumping is only like 1ft wide, why is there so much damn fall damage when i land in water, why cant i stand in a moving vehicle unless it's specifically a flatbed truck or train, why do bodies/ people barely move or react to gunshots compared the GTA IV even though they have the same euphoria tech and BULLETS physics engine, why is car deformation so damn nerfed, why does the water barely react to objects compared to IV, etc. etc.
you guys can never make up your minds, gta 4 is too realistic, gta 5 now apparently is too realistic, saint row 3 and 4 are too un realistic, the gaming community just loves crying like girls.
To be honest i was disappointed with both 4 and 5 for different reasons. They both do things that just inhibit experimentations and fun compared ti SA. To this day i still have more fun(and total hour played) messing around un SA than i ever did in 4 and especially 5. IMO the only thing V has above 4 in terms of fun is the vehicles.
It's almost like different people have different opinions about stuff
Na bruh more like these opinion articles like this needs to die.
I think it just needs to chill with its characters which are all cringe worthy. Start fresh. The first Saints Row was fantastic
It just needs an overhaul.
This, it doesn't need to die it just needs to be better/return to form.
Yeah. For me I hated the super powered sequels. No point in pimping cars or hijacking choppers when you can fly and knock shit over. It was at its best as an over the top gangster game.
I think they need to keep all that in just via Cheat Codes.
I say farcry needs to die
No it doesn't
Gaming journalism needs to finish dying, can't surivive on clickbait forever.
I wish it would go back to the way it used to be in Saints Row 2. The over the top crap ruined it imo.
Just because YOU don’t like it doesn’t mean everyone doesn’t like it too. I am an avid Saints Row fan for years and I’m STOKED for this news. It’s the way of having your own original character go around with a crazy storyline throughout all the series that makes me so excited to be a part of it. It’s not for you, that’s fine. But there’s others that enjoy it more-so.
It`s a parody of GTA series. I'm ok with it
I don't know which game in the series it was, but when they got super powers and did not even need vehicles anymore was when it went too far for me. Sort of a shark jumping moment for the series and I walked away never completing the game.
The series has had a good few years break, which it needed, I think they have timed it right to bring it back.
It’s okay to have a game that has a little fun and doesn’t take itself to seriously when there are already more serious games like gta. Hope the sjws don’t ruin the fun
Nah, I need the silliness of Saint's Row.
Saints Row 1 through 3 were absolute gems that did a lot of things better than GTA.
Saints Row is amazing. If you don’t like the game don’t buy it. One thing I’d like to see is more gang activity’s. Saints row 3 was amazing I Ike the over the top ness, having ether strippers as gang members, be cool to have robots or whatever cool stuff to think of. Saints Row is by far one of my favorite video game series. It can be over the top and still be down to earth with the gang stuff. But in saints row 4 I didn’t like the “alternate dimension” kinda thing but it was still pretty fun.
Saints Row 4 and Gat out of Hell were definite missteps but 1 through 3 were definitely awesome.
You shut your mouth.
It needs to have better humor but it doesn't need to be over the top like the last game. Heck all laughed at the scene in Vice City where that crazy guy was shooting the pigeons right? That kind of stuff needs to be in the game.
Consumers are king, when the games are no longer profitable, they'll stop making them.
i loved SR3 and 4; i disliked gta after san andreas as it got too realistic and boring. screw this article
They tried and then made agents of mayhem it bombed and was in the bargain bin a week after launch it wasn't that bad of a game just marketed horribly. They need a quick win and there's lots of sr fans
No, I want Saints Row V. SRIII & IV were awesome, far more fun than boring GTAIV and V.
Couldn't agree more.
I'd like to see them cut back on the crazy shit. Not just straight up realism but just not so out there. Maybe we'll get something none of us are thinking about.
Saints Row 2 is my fave game and Shaundi and Johnny Gat are some of my fave characters. Saints Row doesn't need to die it just needs to be taken back to it roots.
Why? Plus I love how they sexualize women :)
its a matter of preference what people like. Call of Duty has been going on for how long? Yet shall we call on that needs to die?
nope, saints row was amazing up until V because all those powers made all those weapons and vechicles pointless. i'd love a fresh saints row.
saints row 4 was so much fun so screw this article. more aliens please!
saints row 1 and 2 were genuinly excellent. saints 3 veered off but playable 4 onwards rubbish. just go back to how sainst 2 was and bring it to next gen as a fun gta alternative
i feel the same way it has to end im getting sick of the developers putting weird stuff in game all that humour go back to saints row 2
*Make article about popular series that needs to die, get clicks* I am pretty excited about another entry into the Saint's Row Series.
