My problem with gta V is that it's pretty much the only * realistic*open world city/driving game with modern physics and graghics.
Saints Row IV is garbage. In the sense of being realistic because of all that alien crap etc etc. Saints row 1 and 2 was fun for its time. The reason that company hanged it's style is because it didn't want to be a "gta clone"
Driver3r and parralel lines was really fun. I loved the driving and crash phsics way more than I did in San andreas. San andreas was way more fun, obviously. I found that I played driver parrel lines as much as I did with san andreas. Driver san fransico dramaticaly changed because they didn't want to be a "gta clone" so they went to just driving literaly lol.
When I played true crime new york city I found that game to be pretty fun at the time, I havn't played the new one yet, I can't say too much about it.
I havn't played watch dogs yet so I can't say too much about it.
My point is. Every other open world game tries to be "different" gta that they end up turning there game into utter crap trying to be "different"
The problem now is that, let's be real. There isn't any other open world game like how gta is. So gta in the sense has a bit of a monopoly. The problem is that gta will make there game however they want and not put too much effort into the fun aspect of it because no matter what, people will still by it. People stil by it because there isn't really much options.
If we had a variety of other *realistic* open world games then rockstar games would have to put a lot more effort into there games to make it more fun and lasting in terms of the single player aspect.
There is no such thing as a gta clone. These other companies need to man up and stop acting like sissies to try to be *different*
