Its easy enough

Get GTA V for console and wait for a sale on pc to get Watch Dogs.

Grand theft auto 5's mechanics are much more tuned and compliment to the game play. It's clear watchdogs tries to implement just as much innovation but falls short. GTA V still reigns supreme for now

Watch Dogs . Played GTA V on console for few seconds , couldn't get into it due to bad frame rates , pop ins , terrible draw distance , blocky textures , long loading times , low resolution and so on . I will get GTA V if it comes to PC and when it is on sale (don't plan to buy it day one) . Watch Dogs on other hand brings some new stuff to the table which is always appreciated .

I prefer GTA V, but that doesn't say much since I think they are both mediocre. The problem with Watch Dogs is that its selling point is hacking, and that gets old real fast. Honestly, if you took out the ability to hack, it's pretty much like every other open world game (GTA, Saints Row, etc...). I'm not saying GTA V does anything new, but it can get away with being generic because the GTA series kind of started the whole open world trend.

Gta 5 for me. Watchdogs seems to rely on hacking as someone else pointed out, once that gets old which it does your left with an underwhelming open world game.

:S Have you played WatchDogs, it may be fun and have lots to do, but the game is a mess graphically many people on PC complaining about massive framerate drops even with decent enough builds, long load times???? Have you played watchdogs that has load times within the game, GTA 5 does not it has one load at the beginning and thats it, really seem's like you ain't got a clue what your talking about.

GTA5 It's more polished the controls suit the game, it's fun, it just lacks mini games compared to WatchDogs, but overall the game is just a full package compared to WatchDogs awful graphics in day-light and it just isn't very optimized in my opinion

Gonna have to go with watch dogs, I finally got it the other day, it took me a couple of days to really get into it and get used to the graphics not being as good as gta5, but I'm enjoying it a lot, the vehicles handling and sound effects arent perfect but I still enjoy tearing around in them, especially the motorbikes. I'm liking all the missions and side missions and bits, there's a good variety of things to do, online play is a lot of fun also the way it links with single player is good. I'm finding that the hacking element adds a freshness to the gameplay,

I pick this over gta because gta brings nothing new to the table it's the same formula in every game and I'm bored with it, there's been five gta's and not much has changed, the last truely good gta was San Andreas. Gta5 is better graphically and has better car handling radio stations and of course car customisation but let's not forget that WD is the first game of the series and is a great start to the series.

i love GTA 5!!! GTA 5 is great!!

...but to be honest....its still the same shit like GTA 1-4 but with updates on graphic and gameplay

so i dont even have to think a second to realize i prefer WATCH DOGS because you can do so many more things plus you can use those things to solve missions.
