Sometimes I really hate the comments section on GS. Stop complaining about Lisa, because I doubt you would do anywhere near as good of a job, and stop complaining about Watch_Dogs because we've all heard it a million times already.

The title is more funny considering you literally have to hack the game to get E3 graphics.

Can NOT believe that the game "Uplink" didn't get a mention here.

You want to talk about a hacking game? Uplink makes Watchdogs look like stupid toy for kids.

Is she photoshopped or is that just layer upon layer of make up?


Either way it's scary looking

Deus Ex: Human Revolution: THE HEAD OF SECURITY IS THE BIGGEST THIEF OF ALL!!!

The boss doesn't every provide you any money or provisions so your job.  That's like having Lisa and Andy provide their own cameras, computers, and website to do their jobs and then pay their own room and board too.


In Deus Ex, you have to spend most of your time opening up everyone's desk and locker; looting all your enemies just so you can buy guns, ammo, praxis kits, and other stuff just so you can do your job.


Why not just ask your boss or that multi-billionaire owner you're talking with all the time for some money??--So you can do they job they're asking you to do.

"Is Watch Dogs Grand Theft Auto With Hacking?"


A better comparison would be: Watch Dogs is an amalgam of Driver San Francisco and Splinter Cell--two other UbiSoft games with a little inspiration from Split/Second and SR3 & SR4.


*The hacking is new.

*The ability to go from one camera to another is similar to Driver: San Francisco where you go from one car to another possessing the driver.

*The driving missions are similar to Driver: San Francisco.  The graphics and driving is better in Driver: SF.

*Stealth and gadgets:  Very similar to Splinter Cell.  Instead of throwing a gadget, the cameras and other things are already in place to be hacked/used.  The stealth movement is about the same as the Splinter Cell series.


The stealth, shooting and combat (graphics too)  are better in Splinter Cell Conviction and Blacklist, especially Blacklist.


The driving, driving missions, graphics and racing are much better in Driver: SF and Split/Second.


Watch Dogs does a lot of things very well, but it's not the best at any of them.

The Saints Row Series is Above All Others!!!

Because there's an elite group games want to spend all there time having great fun when they play video games!   There's nothing stupid about that.  For everyone else. . .


Thank you Lisa.  I'm happy Saints Row received the recognition it deserves.  You one of the elite.

Saints Row The Third. Everything in it was absolutely ridiculous, but the many of the characters (Male Voice Actor 1, Shaundi, Pierce, Kinsey) somehow still felt like real people. Amid all the over the top destruction and stupidity, the surprisingly great voice acting tends to go unnoticed. 


Loooovin', is what I got, I said remember that...

No matter how hard I try I just can't get into Deus Ex. I like the concept but I keep forcing myself to play it hoping that at some point I'll get caught up in the current and I won't have to think about playing it. I'm not there yet.

Split Second is hella-fun. Not the most accomplished racer, but fun. Like Top Gear.

Personally I can feel a slight comparison with Okami, to the extent that you're in an open-world that you can manipulate with a single, seemingly innocuous item that can be used as a tool or a weapon.

TL;DR.... 

#1 Deus Ex: Human Revolution

#2 Split Second

#3 Saints Row 3 and 4

@VenkmanPHD Or Hacker Evolution. Never played Uplink (Should I?), but kinda expected they will show Hacker Evolution for a hacking part.

@lorider25 I can't stand women that have to wear that much. They're either hiding something or they're insecure. Either way it's not cool.

@lorider25 I was thinking the exact opposite. She looked great and she's also getting better at this whole gamer video thing!

@Metallicwolf29 titanfall was the most hyped game this year and yes no one talks or plays it any more

@PlatinumPaladin Yeah, I struggled with Deus Ex too.  Great atmosphere and at times I just left it running for the soundtrack but found the gameplay restrictive and repetitive. Ended up never completing it.  Had the same problem with Dishonoured.

I hope developers learn their lesson from this.

@homelessgamer whoa i am not that guy if you mean "ladies man xxx" or what ever his name is, i'll have you know me and he don't get along. if you are making a jape at some of the things you get up to in alpha protocol then guilty as charged

@Xan26 @Apofis_SG-1 @VenkmanPHD I've never even heard of Hacker Evolution. I'll have to check that out.


Uplink is pretty much a hacking simulator. It's kinda dated as it was made over 10 years ago, and well... you know how fast computers move. Still really fun though.

@Sajius @spartanx169x  I got your comment before it was edited. I am white so you would be wrong in your accusation and I have been defending the host of the show. I'm tired of everybody picking on her. She is a pretty girl.

@jellyman68 @spartanx169x Lol , you have no idea. I'm 45 years old and dated women for 20 years before getting married, here is a little math. Even modestly only going out with on average 5 women a year for 20 years what does that come out to? . I don't know a lot of things, But I do know women. And I'm sure you will have some smartazz remark. But know this , I  have no reason to lie and could care less if you  believe me or not.
