Watch dogs looks like a game that could be played for hours upon hours without getting boring. I am considering pre-ordering it. What are your thoughts on Watch Dogs?

It looks interesting to say the least but I'll wait a while before deciding on a purchase.

The Trick to staving off boredom in Open World games is alternating between multiple tasks in short periods of time.

Too be honest i'm just wanting to see videos of the PC version because that looks amazing. But for the actual game itself? I need to see some actual people playing it first.

@ blangenakker

Its not that simple with open world games. The Majority of people think Open World automatically makes it worth playing. They'l add Open World to anything and everything if you let them.

The game has always been a pre-order for me, even through these tough times of graphics comparison (I've pre-ordered it for the PS4).
I would very much like for the game to look like the E3 preview, but I have come to accept that this is highly unlikely :/
Nonetheless; the gameplay looks absolutely amazing, a fresh take on open-world, giving the player one more level of control. I am very positive :)

My hype for this game has dropped considerably. I'm going to wait for reviews and a price drop. Ubisoft games tend to drop in price or go on sale pretty quickly.

I've lost almost all interest in the game. I'll still get it eventually if it doesn't turn out terrible.

The delay killed a lot of my anticipation but I'll still pick it up on release or some time after.

Considering what's out there now in terms of PS4 games, I think I might be getting this one. Like others said, it will depend on how well it's received by people.

My interest has fallen off a bit, too. What was an automatic day 1 purchase is now going to be wait-and-see for me.

I really feel like Ubisoft will not be able to deliver on what they have said/shown. I also feel like all the best hacking will be part of scripted scenes. So I'll wait and hopefully be proven wrong. I really like the concept and hope it's as good as it can be.

I was interested until the delay. The recently announced season pass has convinced me to wait for a price drop or the GOTY edition if gameplay videos are to my liking.

I was really pumped up about the game at the first glance, then when some graphics comparison and overall skepticism came over the Internet I, myself, became skeptical too, but now when I see all this truly great gameplay I know it will be great!

I'm bored with it and haven't even played it yet. The entire spying aspect is intriguing but honestly when the Supreme Court just tossed out Net Neutrality and nobody cares about it what's the point? Net Neutrality never existed and anybody who paid attention to reality has known that for at least the past decade or so. The internet/mobile is corporate/government controlled. I don't see a point in playing the game.

People should be outraged about so many things regarding our actual lack of tangible freedoms. Choices that matter, not commercial choices and product placement.

I haven't looked into this game that much, but the screenshots look good. Does anyone know if there will be stunts in this game? One of the things I liked the most about GTA was the crazy stunts you could do once you had finished the main game. I'd like to see a full fledged tony hawk-esque system in place for stunts.

No offense to Ubi fans but I believe Ubisoft games tend to get repetitive pretty soon like in FC3 or AC series..Although i am really looking out for WD i have a tiny feeling that it will disappoint although i hope that does not happen.

@Lulu_Lulu: sometimes open world games are the emptiest games going, big open spaces with not much to do in them are the worst.

But I'm pretty excited for watch dogs hopefully it's amazing. I'm gonna try and wait and not just get it on day one release, wait and see what a few reviews say.

I just hope its as Open Ended as it as Open World. But I doubt that.... Still should be good though.

Watch Dogs looks fun if you are drunk and have 60 quid you don't want.

Ubisoft so ruined my hype over this game with is insane bad graphics and then its "oh you need a Titan to be able to run this fully"

@Jacanuk: I agree that 60 is a lot for the game/games in general. But also this game will provide plenty of content for my YouTube channel and I enjoy the Assassin's Creed series and Watch Dogs reminds me of this. I will probably be waiting for it's release and a few days after before buying though.

Yes open world games can be like that (Amazing Spider-man 2 is extremely underpopulated) but watch dogs looks like a game that has plenty of content, well it better with this long of a wait on it.

@spacecatthe1st: Ok, good luck competing with the million and 2 other youtubers trying to get watch dogs content and make it popular.

But honestly i think im going to wait, i have plenty of indie games to get me past E3 and Gamescom.

it's just that the core gameworld is designed to work with the lowest common denominator (PS3? Wii U?), so it makes you think what additional sweets can there possibly be on top of that so that modern i7 would be required to run them smoothly.

I'm with you TC, you can hack EVERY NPC, this game could be played days on end without getting bored. Don't have to pre-order it though I'm sure their will be enough copies to meet demands.

I'm in the same boat as you, man. I was super pumped about "Watch Dogs" for variety of reasons (It's located in Chicago & never got to play all GTA games). When it was delayed late last year, it bummed me out (iron out the bugs & less glitches are more important). I might rent it later this month.

Yes, but without preordering it, you won't be able to get the limited edition weapon skin that does nothing to enhance your overall gameplay! lol

Yeah me too. It seems like the 'present day' Assassin's Creed everyone said they wanted, but they spun it off into a whole new game. Which is great... AC is getting a bit stale.

It's on my radar.

I think introducing the idea of hacking into an open-world, dynamic environment is a pretty clever idea actually that holds tremendous potential for interesting emergent gameplay possibilities. Just a matter of if they can execute it well and not have it be dependent upon a lot of scripted moments or set pieces.

This is one game where I'm actually going to hold off to see if the Wii U version gets any benefit from the gamepad. It seems a game tailor made for it and if dealing with lesser visuals means a smoother experience due to the efficiency of the pad's features, it'll definitely be a sacrifice worth making.

Riiiiiiiight because its not like the NPC-programming has around 100-200 different codes that will just recycle with a small variation ;) so it won't at all get repetitive after a few hours. (<--- Sarcasm might have been used)

Remember kiddies: DO NOT BUY THE GAME ON RELEASE DATE.

You're not getting the full game. Just wait til the game is actually worth it's honest price tag ($30-$40) All DLC and other bullshit included, ON THE DISC. Games nowadays are never worth it on release date. Never. Bugged, locked content, useless DLC, ect.

The delay and mixed information coming out during the previews after the delay have me uninterested. The reveal concept was great, but now I have zero reason to get excited for it.
