Watch Dogs 2 was actually pretty good, but then again I didn't have huge expectations like I did with GTA V. In terms of story both are pretty ridiculous, but the world of San Francisco is more alive than Los Santos, and there's tons of sh*t to do. But GTA V still has that Rockstar polish to it, and director mode and the content creator.. I'd say they even themselves out.

Watchdogs 2 absolutely destroys GTA V. Only flaw is driving.

The only thing GTA has that watchdog doesn't is "nostalgia" and if you want to role play, GTA's world just "seems" more "real" but think that's only cos of the driving and nothing more.

People saying Watchdogs 2 isn't realistic have no idea on the modern westernised world.. Lol. Give it 10 years, it will be awfully similiar especially technology and criminal databases, drones etc..

One flaw I hate, being a criminal and wearing deadsec clothes. I always role play, break in fbi, put on a suit, different missions different clothes. But where you don't have to, I suppose that should be judged.

GTA V 8. Shoulda, coulda, woulda game
Watchdogs 2 9. Excels from the first, great strides for the future. Only flaw is driving which seems "empty" and deadsec branded clothing in stealth missions etc.

Watch Dogs 2 isn't terrible the map is interesting enough to make me want to explore but where GTA 5 beats WD2 is the story and characters GTA 5's story and characters are way more memorable then WD2 the only slightly memorable character in WD2 is Wrench

The problem with WD2 (and 1) is that it's just always pushing you forward. Off-mission it doesn't seem like the characters have lives to get on with.

GTA V, for all of its faults is still a GTA, and because it carries over enough of those life-sim aspects from IV, you can still lose yourself in the game a lot more than a usual open world game.

Played an hour of Watch Dogs (the first one) and I didn't like it at all. Didn't bother with the WD series after that, so I'd say GTA V.
 
And I'm not really interested in hacking activities either.

You played the first one, not the second one.
I've played WD2 on PS4 and it's better than GTA V.
They've made SFO like 80-/- of SFO. The main city in GTA V is too small.
Marcus was not as good as Aiden Pearce, but still OK. Get it man. You'll love it.

 

 

I'm not saying WD2 is not good - I'm just saying that it is not my thing. It still involves mostly crimes to do with hacking and computers, and that's not what I'm really into regarding open-world crime games in the style of GTA. Playing WD, I quickly realised that this hacking stuff did not excite or interest me one bit. WD2 is still gonna have the same core gameplay as the first, so therefore, WD2 still wouldn't appeal to me either way.

 

But the city of SF looks great though I admit, I'd love to have seen a similar city of San Fierro in V if there had been a map expansion.

I know a lot of people here don't like the driving in V but compared to WD2 it is ten times better. The driving in the WD games is the definition of arcadey.

They're hit and miss to me. Assassin's Creed II is one of my favourite games, but I couldn't into Far Cry 4 whatsoever. It really depends on the franchise and type of game it is.

They're not as bad as EA IMO.

Huh really ?? The Assassin's Creed series were quite boring and very repetitive, I never really got into them or took a liking to them. I bought the first one brand new, and I part-exchanged it within a couple of months. AC3 was good for a bit, but then it just became the same ol' very repetitive and tedious stuff.

 

The Far Cry games are Ubisoft's best work in recent years, namely Far Cry 3 and 4, they were both brilliant - I'm very surprised you didn't like the Far Cry games, well 3 and 4 anyway.

EA. I dislike the company & it's games but there are many of my nostalgia are associated with it.

NFS : Underground was one of the first racing games I used to play. It was gifted to me by my younger uncle in my birthday. It's been a two-fifth a decade since I touched NFS.

Let's return to the topic.
Every company is now engaged to make open world games. GTA, Watch Dogs, Spiderman, Prototype, ToD, etc.
Now days, I've lost my interest in gaming, which I had a lot before 2010. All games are having overmount features, which we've experienced in real life. I remember playing VC in 2003 or some other games which gave us fun.
Nowdays, we just have games with great graphics, but no much fun.
Watch Dogs 2 is comparatively better than gta V coz it has better story missions as well as better side missions.

Well... I've spent +50 days of my life on GTA V and only 34 hours on WD2.

Don't get me wrong both games are great but I'd be lying if I told I prefer WD2.

I don't dislike the Far Cry games just 4. 3 was a great game infact. Like I said I find Ubisoft to be hit and miss with their games. Some of them are great others are "meh".

Regarding the thread the first Watch Dogs suffered what a lot of new IPs seem to and not quite having their potential realised.

With Watch Dogs 2 IMO Ubisoft done more in the two years between the games to improve than what R* did between GTA IV and GTA V with double the time and budget.

Watch Dogs 2 has its flaws, but to me it improves on the first game in every major way more than GTA V does to GTA IV.

@ Miami

 

FC3 was the best one, but FC4 is still good, I recently finished it. The AC series can disappear for all I care. WD2 looks good, but I just cant be bothered with hacking activities.

Kinda surprised to hear Watch Dogs 2 get praised, it must be a big step forward compared to the first one.

I'll go with GTA V seeing as Watchdogs 2 was an obnoxious pile of horse sh*t with the worst characters in video game history IMHO. GTA V can be obnoxious too but at least it's quite clever & funny IMO. 

 

Also, I've played through V four times & I have played it for 100s of hours across two generations, I scraped through Watch dogs 2 in 20 hours & never touched it again.

It's going against GTA V on this forum. A watching grass grow simulator would get praised against V with some people.The fact that V is winning by quite a large margin shows WD2 isn't very good.

I didn't played Watch Dogs 2, I played the first one and the world was very impressive, both on the NPC and layout area. Chicago felt real, and I also liked the car models (who felt like real cars because of their models) and the driving. It's not a cartoon world. R* took this way with GTA 4 but unfortunately that's not the case anymore.

The fact that V is winning by quite a large margin shows WD2 isn't very good.

Doesn't show everything, I think that the opposit result would be seen on WD 2 forum.
