Whats your most favorite? Which one is better?

For me I liked the Saints Row series better, because its more enjoyable, The missions are really fun and so is the multiplayer. For GTA tho after San Andreas, GTA has been too series its not that enjoyable to me. They tried to make it to realistic i guess but it is fun. Just not as fun as it used to be. Now the Saints Row 3 is rolling around the corner. I see the story and graphics and gameplay has improved even more so Im Waiting for that Release. Hopefuly GTA5 turns out better then GTA 4 cuz i wasnt feeling GTA 4 too much.

SO what your Vote?

im talking about

-Gameplay

-Multiplayer

-Story

-Which one is More Fun

Overall? I prefer Saints Row for gameplay, story and of course the customization.
However, I do actually like the multiplayer for GTA more, because of the choice, and free roam, except leveling up is a biatch!
Really cannot wait for Saints Row: The Third, it's going to be bloody amazing!

Saints Row, but GTA's multiplayer was better in my opinion.
#4 Posted by FPSMadPaul (18 posts) -

GTA's got my vote.

Gameplay - Saints Row

Multiplayer - Grand Theft Auto

Story - Grand Theft Auto

Which one is More Fun - Saints Row

I value story and multiplayer higher as Saints Row's were only slight victories.

I will be getting SR3 though.

Tough choice. I love the over-the-top zaniness of Saints Row but I also dig the more mature, deeper (half the time) mood of GTA. I honestly cannot choose a victor because both games have such great qualities. I've been lucky enough to enjoy all of the games this gen and the GTAs of the past. :)

yeah i guess ur rightt theres always something about each game that makes it special in its own way and im grateful to have enjoyed both games and all the generations of Gta

Yeah, Saints the third should show GTA lovers. Come on, who hasn't wanted to walk around the streets hitting random people with a giant purple dild* Or fire people out of a cannon. Saints Row always knows exactly what I like ;)

#13 Posted by Zevvion (448 posts) -

GTAIV was more about watching cutscenes than anything else. The gameplay that was there wasn't that good if you ask me. So, unless you find the GTA world interesting (which I don't) Saints Row is the obvious choice. Has allot more gameplay and doesn't take itself so seriously.

I thought Saints Row 2 had better gameplay, better activities, better customizations and more options which also gave it better driving, better story, better characters, funnier, and it had co-op so I think it had the better multiplayer. If we were only talking player vs player I would say GTA due to the free roam.

You need to set up a poll.

SR2 was cool, but I liked GTA IV better.

Yeah i think the co op for saints row is realy enjoyable I like the ranking system to for the multiplayer.

thats exactly what im trying to sayy! =D. The only GTA i really enjoyed was san andreas. When saints row came along my mind was set to it.
#20 Posted by MW2ismygame (2183 posts) -

well i like GTAIV better but you have to understand GTA is more serious and satirizes society while SR is just downright funny

Just Cause 2 is better than Saints Row 2. GTAIV is better than both of them.
#22 Posted by Skorpiion (27 posts) -

For me i think i prefer saints row for story as the missions were a little more enjoyable, gta4 free mode was and still is amazing, i dont think i will ever get bored of that and hopefully it will be in gta5, for me saints row2 multiplayer was annoying, i preferred saints row 1 multiplayer with the clan leaderboards and matches, i think overall it is saints row for me, hopefully saints row 3 has the same sort of multiplayer as saints row 1.

#23 Posted by Mo-licious (600 posts) -
IMO ... SR2 was more fun than GTA4. However, I only played the campaign for both. I just could not relate (or even like for that matter) the lead character in GTA4.

Saints Row games are more fun.

I'm a Saint's Row lover. The second I put so many hours into. GTA 4 I hate..so much. The driving, the shooting, the characters...not for me. Really excited for Saint's Row 3 :)

yeah gameplay are really different from each other. but yes the Wait for SR3 shuld be a exciting one.
#31 Posted by LustForSoul (5911 posts) -
Overall Saints Row would win. The gameplay is a bit more over the top which means in the end more fun. Story wise it kills GTA's ones, since it's one story line continuing every game. The characters in Saints Row are great. GTA only wins in MP, for now. Once The Third releases it's over.
#32 Posted by Robertmc80 (1 posts) -
Saints Row 2 is by far a game that packs more fun in than GTA 4, but GTA 4 has a better story and has that unique "something" that makes you want to play it. I prefer Saints Row for it's silliness and insanity but GTA 4 is also something special, it's not the 10/10 game that people claimed it was, but it wasn't bad either.

gta is deffinatly not better then just cause 2 but i think saints row pulls ahead

Love em both, probably GTA more. But they aren't really the same type of game. Too different to compare, both city sandbox style games but still completely different.

they can be compared. These 2 games have been being compared for quite a while.. comparing Halo and Fallout cant happen but gta and saints row can be compared.

Saints row
#39 Posted by doubalfa (6865 posts) -
Saints Row, especially part 2, the ammount of customization options, the over the top gameplay, the themed gangs, overall I had way more fun with SR2 than with GTA IV
#40 Posted by Jagged3dge (3895 posts) -

They're both different games. Saints Row is definitely a more wacky game than GTA. And unfortunately, not all the time people enjoy wacky stuff. Some people find realism to be the most fun. Myself, I'm torn on the issue. When I want story and more intense gameplay I go to GTA. When I'm looking to just lay back and have mindless fun then I play SR.

Nonetheless, I think that the SR series has went from wacky to plain immature crude humor. The third installment looks like they're just looking to appeal to the 13 year olds out there. The Saints Row games were always silly, but they at least had some middle ground.

#41 Posted by allboutkiln (508 posts) -

Yeah, GTA San Andreas is the best in the series 'imo', the Ballad of Gay Tony is my 2nd fave, Saints Row 2 is good fun also.

When SR1 came out, it kinda made an impact on GTA's audience, but not much. Then, SR2 came out, and you had the ability to run around as a female. As linear as this sounds, that's all it took for me to become a full-fledged SR fanatic. I like GTA's graphics, but I have to agree with the forum creater.... the missions in SR were WAY more fun. Maybe if GTA focused on changing it's ways, from always having to be a dude to always driving around escorting someone, GTA isn't as "OMG" as it used to be.... Hopefully, they'll catch on, or they'll just be eclipsed by SR...
#43 Posted by sukraj (24020 posts) -

i prefer saints row.

#44 Posted by Evandemocracy (303 posts) -

I Don't Consider them any where near the same and there both Great thq has a twist on the open world Scene at the moment And Rockstar Sticks to Realism in there story and Gameplay And Saints row Is Almost entirely the Opposite yes thq Copied some idea's but then made them there own thing so I'm Happy with Both Equally and I Love Playing both But There Not the Same And i think we all like that.

if Gta 5 makes an improvement vs saints row 3. we can deffinatly see the changes but as of now SR3 is looking pretty good at this rate gta wont be able to match up with how Far Saints row has come since number 1
#46 Posted by JohnGameReviews (3 posts) -

The singleplayer gameplay is better on saints row 2, although the multiplayer gameplay and story of grand theft auto 4 is way better.Both of them are almost as good but i would still say grand theft auto 4 wins.

#47 Posted by drunkenyak (165 posts) -

Overall I like the Saints Row series better. Well namely 2 I wasn't to impressed with the first one. However for a single game I really enjoyed San Andreas more than anything else. I'm really looking foward to Saints Row: The Third. I had actually dusted off my copy of Saints Row 2 and beat it a few weeks ago once I saw that a third one was coming out. Will it top San Andreas for me? I guess i'll find out. :P I loved Saints Row 2, and I have high hopes for 3. 8)

#48 Posted by -DirtySanchez- (32760 posts) -
GTA will always hold a place in my heart/mind as a gamer, i very much enjoyed GTA IV but it felt like it took things a little to serious for a GTA game ( compared to the others before it ) the first Saints Row was a little buggy but fun as hell, the second took it to a whole new level, it may have gonna a little to far into over the top but frankly it worked perfectly and its looking like the third will push it even further and i cant wait so loved the GTA games even IV with it over serious nature, never played it online completely love Saints Row, a little buggy at first but its over the top nature appeals more in a sandbox game, the co-op missions in the first game were ok all though a little tough, and the co-op campaign of 2 was pure fun, took me a bit to get into the online vs modes of 2 but once i did and found good connection games i enjoyed it alot so to sum it up Saints Row for me

Saints Row is the better of the two.
