Forums - Gaming Discussion - So I just played Watch_Dogs and...

The only reason people are bashing this game (even though it HAS been downgraded fron the E3 build): this game is not GTA V.

Really, that's all the vast majority of detractors say about it.

But Watch_Dogs is better in my opinion. Tons of things to do, Chicago feels and looks real, nice story line, nice characters, awesome gameplay... A real must-have. The first real next gen game.

 

EDIT: 

Now don't get me wrong, Watch_Dogs is far from being perfect. It has a lot of flaws, especially the driving and the damage on the cars, but it's a really good game, and a great start to the franchise.

Remember the first Assassin's Creed. It was flawed as well, but AC II and III were simply awesome.

People keep saying it's not worth the money simply because they can't get the idea that Watch_Dogs is NOT GTA V.

And in my humble opinion, it is better than the latter.

Think about it: Watch_Dogs gives us something new. Never an Open World city has felt THIS alive, the hacking gameplay is a great idea, and even though it could have been better, it's still a real pleasure to play it. On the other side, GTA V offers NOTHING new. So yeah, 3 characters, big deal, but that's all. It's still the same game as every GTA before.

So imo, Watch_Dogs > GTA V (but it's still a great game as well)

This game is the very definition of a 8/10 or 8'5/10. Is solid, is fun but for some people expecting more (something really amazing or a masterpiece) they will be disappointed and others expecting to fail will be surprised postively.

For me, Watch Dogs as a new IP is a great start, like the original Assassin's Creed was in their time. Like the original AC, this game can be much more in the obligatory sequel if they expand what it woks and fix what not, like what they did in AC II, it can be that 9/10 or even 10/10 game for me.

This is only the start of a new IP. Not every new IP is like The Last of Us or Halo (to name a few) that started being a masterpiece. Remember how succesful IP's like Uncharted, GTA, Call of Duty, ... started too and how progressed with each new entry to become what they're known for now.

Exactly. But I really have the impression that gamers never think about this. A first shot can't always be perfect. Geez, most of the time, it's not, and it could have been a disaster as well. They really did a great job, and I hope the sequel will be an amazing game.

The game is amazing, i've spent far too much time simply blowing stuff up and causing trouble than actually playing the main story

Personnally, just like arcane_chaos, I just take a car, blast "Help Is On The Way" and save random people. 

Also, I kill every person involved in the human traffic activity. The scene at the auction just disgusted me.

Best game released this year imo. I think ubi has something good on their hands, I just hope there is no more deceptive marketing because it looks great, better than infamous imo. I have not played an open world game this fun since gta San Andreas.

Oh, it's definitely better than Infamous. Infamous takes great photos, but the content is just lacking and repetitive.

This game just keeps getting better. Now I'm just walking around and reading about pedestrians. Next I'll try to move across the entire island just by using cameras...

My plan is to actually start playing the missions in about a month :)))

In the graphics department, inFAMOUS smashes Watch_Dogs. But in the content department, it's the other way around.

The gameplay is great in both games imo.

But Watch_Dogs is overall better: deeper gameplay, better open world, the city feels alive, much more activities, etc...
