Well, I had to write an article about Watch Dogs… I just had to. As much as I like to explore the Indie realm and the smaller games there is just no avoiding this game… But don’t worry, I won’t go trough the game’s features and all that nonsense because everyone does it and it just gets boring!
With Watch Dogs we have an open world game where you play as some kind of hacker who has access to information regarding basically everyone, who fights for freedom in a controlled society where privacy is something rare and precious…
A game that can steal the crown of best open world game from the hands of Rockstar, by giving the player a rich world filled with details and a true graphical prowess! GTA V is coming out first and on the current gen consoles so Watch Dogs should at least have a better visual presentation since it is also coming out for the PS4 and the XboxOne.
One thing that should make Rockstar’s game more appealing to a broader audience is the quantity of side activities that the game will present to players, tennis and golf are just 2 examples of what to look for… On the other hand, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs is shaping up to be a more story driven game, with less emphasis on fun activities and more on the narrative itself.
One of the games tends to more of a satire of today’s society and the other is more of a grim look into the near future, guess which one is which? Easy question… It may come down to your person taste to decide which style of game suits you better.
But if you ask me which of these games I’m most looking forward to, I would have to say that despite my huge interest for Watch Dogs, GTA V is the game I want to get my hands on first…
But I’m very happy that a true contender to the open world crown is about to hit the market later this year, and the fact that this is a new IP just makes it even better.
And, as with all these gaming and console rivalries… We, gamers, are the ones who always win!
