Poll: Saints Row or Assasins Creed? (25 votes)

Saints Row 4 life 24%
Assasins Creed 4 life 76%

Would you rather have a game like Saints Row 4 that drastically changes aspects of the game from sequel to sequel or would you rather have a game like Assassins Creed in which it's the exact same thing over and over again with very minimal difference?

Assassin's Creed 4 simply because Saints Row seems to try too hard.

Saints Row... Assassin's Creed has always been dull, weak, and forgettable..

Both, but if i had to choose i would say Saints Row just because i like being able to customize a lot of stuff.

Assassin's Creed, even though it has gone downhill quite a bit. Saints Row is just way too over the top for me.

Saints Row 4 is more identity-crisis than ambitious.

AC easily. AC's climbable world beats the entire SR package on its own. Then ofc AC has alots of problems in terms of mechanics and mission design etc.

I didn't play SR enough to compare between the two but from what i saw i like AC a bit more than SR.

Correct. Saints Row a hive of creativity. Assassins Creed a board room meeting on how to make money.

This.

I have no idea why some people are trying to put SR on a pedestal these days, when it really isn't anything special. Just another decent open world game, nothing really unique about it. Haven't played SR IV yet, but going by the footage I saw, most of those superpowers were lifted right out of Prototype.

No contest. AC. Saints row 1 and 2 was fun to me. After that it went downhill.

Sadly the claimable world hasn't got the gameplay to go with it, making it entirely moot.

Saints Row on the other hands regardless of GTA clone of superhero game backs up it's structure with solid varied game-play.

While both games have stolen concepts (AC stole it's idea's from a guys book for which he got spammed ones on Amazon by fanboys) Saints Row injects so much energy and creativity into it that it generally outshines it's competition.

AC series listens. It's kind of passive sometimes, but look what they've done:

  • After AC1, people say that the game is too grindy, and so listened.
  • AC2 is a lot less grindy, has a lot more character, etc. People really liked it and didn't really give much suggestion.
  • Brotherhood and Revelation were mostly copy and paste as a result. At which time people started complaining that they look all the same.
  • AC3 therefore was not the same. It tried many new ideas, but ultimately it was not very successful. They did however notice that the players loved the naval combat in AC3.
  • And so, AC4 is banking heavily on the naval combat, which is simply awesome from the session I tried at expo. They also copied open-world elements from Far Cry 3 and even stealth elements from Splinter Cell Conviction/Blacklist.

It's true. AC series tend to play it safe, but they've listened in the past and always tried to aim for improvements.

Saints Row. AC is the same game every time, if they'd make SR5 it would change again while AC 5 would remain the same hidden blade.

Saying AC 5 would keep the hidden blade is like saying Battlefield 5 would keep guns.

Saints Row 4's story is so stupid it's brilliant. Keith David in a Cape fighting Rowdy Rowdy Piper and an alien overlord who loves Jane Austen.

It's like Mass Effect if it didn't suck.
