The release of Watch Dogs was one of the most anticipated for next-generation consoles. Back in October, we all received the news we wished was not true. Watch Dogs was being pushed back to 2014 and not a launch title. This shook up everything. PS3 pre-order bundles were changed and potential Xbox One owners canceled their consoles all together. It’s been a couple months, so we wanted to remind you of we why think Watch Dogs is worth the wait.

Today at 4:00pm PST, Jess McDonell is being featured for her ongoing video series, The Gist. Each week, Jess explains her top 5 for all sorts of things. Everything from "Best Sidekicks" to "Awesome Games you Probably Didn't Play".
