I believe that title belongs to the Yakuza series for the last 10 years.

Sleeping dogs is also a very enjoyable game in similar genre but the level of polish and budget lags far behind Yakuza.

Still a good game.

"Sleeping Dogs was in development as a True Crime game at one point"

"True Crime" was a game series with True Crime: New York and True Crime: Streets of LA.

Sleeping dogs started out as True Crime: Hong Kong. They're not talking about crime games in general.

Are you okay? The King of Crime games is Yakuza since many years. Get serious with your next article ^^

True Crime was a game series, GTA even had a True Grime billboard in San Andreas parodying it. I never played the second but the original even had Snoop Dogg as a playable character.

True crime was hugely ambitious but bit off far more than it could chew which is a shame as sleeping dogs proved the series had great ideas but needed refinement.

Maybe one day it can return but I doubt it Activision really butchered true crime new york personally I actually liked it but I know it was pretty hated all over but I loved being able to arrest random people extort stores and search car boots at random

Sleeping Dogs is still better than the best Yakuza (0). Yakuza is also not true crime nor is it in the series True Crime. Also Sleeping Dogs has a more interesting protag and tighter combat. Yakuza is much closer to Shenmue if anything.

The combat in Sleeping Dogs is ...lame. I give you that the main protagonist was more interesting..but the giant cast of antagonists with a ton of personality made the Yakuza game's story superb in comparison. And "not true crime" What is that even supposed to mean?
