Will there ever be another crime game to compete with GTA?

Saints row 1 and 2 was okay but it dropped acid and became 3 and 4

Also sleeping dogs was okay

If it was to happen, the only way for another developer to take first place is if Rockstar slipped up or f*cked up somehow, which I don't see happening in the near future. Although what goes up, must come down, I feel that was Grand Theft Auto 5, but I also feel that was just a small hiccup that will be learned from.

I got bored of Sleeping Dogs after 3 hours. Still playing V at least a couple of hours a week.

 

What a magical world we live in.

Saints row could of been it

 

Saints row 1 was a better game than San Andreas and had a better Story than any gta that came before it.

 

Saints row 2 in many ways was better than IV (I Liked IV Overall More but it found itself a niche)

 

then they just blew it with those last 2 piles of Horse sh*t which are an insult to the first 2 games.

 

 

Mafia 2 i thought was a Great game all it needs is to be not so Linear and maybe just a bit more Ambitious then mafia could easily compete with gta In terms Of Quality.

 

and Sleeping dogs was also a very good game that again in many ways was a better game than Gta IV all it needs is better less cliché Dialogue/writing and better driving then it could easily compete with Grand Theft Auto in terms Of quality

 

 

i was not a big Fan of watch dogs i thought it was a rather bland game with a mediocre Story BUT its still i think the best selling game ubisoft game (might be wrong) so this is the game that can compete with Gta In terms Of Sales/Popularity but from what i saw of the first not so much in Quality.

 

 

Games like just cause and mercenaries Are far to 1 dimensional to Compete with Gta. V Confirmed that as it Combined Good Storytelling and fun mayhem Together something neither of those 2 titles have been able to do.

They are not even crime games. They're about wars and political issues. I would rather compare them to Far Cry 2.

Saints Row ALMOST came close with the second instalment, being a no-holds-barred alternative to GTA IV at the time. Then they just made it ridiculous, especially with IV. I admit, it was a guilty pleasure for me, but it had NO identity or originality whatsoever. It was like a rip-off of several games at once with that whole virtual reality superhero bullsh*t. I think the only GTA game that SR had similarities to was San Andreas with the whole gang/turf-war theme going on, so I don't see why they completely changed the focus in order to be "different" from GTA.

 

Watch Dogs also looked like a promising "GTA killer", but it turned out less polished than expected, and the hype has died down severely since the game's release. I appreciate some competitors to GTA now and again, but they just don't have as much character or originality imo.

Honestly, there should be one to compete with GTA, and step forward to give us more focused crime based game, like: Mafia ( note: just using as an example, don't want an exact clone )

I've loved the first Mafia, an amazing game of the past, with criminal setting, great characters and mostly a fantastic story, apart from the equally awesome gameplay.

I felt truly playing the role of gangster working for a powerful crime family.

On the other hand, GTA drags the player on a lot of side activities, not specifically centered around crime, or some serious criminal activities.

The side activities are more like 'side fun' and actually form a major portion ( attraction ) of the game after the ( more than ) story for years, to replay more and enjoy. Not that its bad, not at all. Since, we got many things to enjoy.

But, I have actually got bored with much lack of the more crime related activities, nearly as good as Mafia.

I mean, the Mafia had least amount of side activities that doesn't fit the setting.

The story missions are what I'd say, the core, highlighting the criminal world brilliantly with each meaningful quest, taking it a step forward, and remains exciting throughout the intense and lengthy adventure.

The NPC, Cops and Enemy AI are all good enough for a challenging gameplay along with well written lines, paying a lot of attention on the character and the other details too.

Feels a lot real and believable as a crime game to enjoy and experience.

I feel GTA can ONLY offer a rich and better crime based game by introducing a lot more activities focusing them, rather bullsh*t crap: yoga, tennis, darts, random events, strangers and freaks, etc., to turn into something, as close to Mafia.

 

So, I definitely feel the need for the games which does show a lot more powerful and serious criminal stuff beyond simple shooting, driving and fending off the cops, and with the introduction of GTA:O, I feel even more so worried that we could ever expect them to deliver.

I'm hoping more interested developers to pick up the concept and produce games, based on organized crime and such activities.

In What Sense Story wise ? In terms of the game World ? the Driving and Shooting Aspects ? Visually ? how does it Surpass IV?

 

The only thing for me Saints row 2 did have Over IV Was Mission Diversity other than that IV Has it beat IMO fun Game Though Cruising Around Stillwater with The Final Countdown or take on me Blasting was Great but its Still Not f*cking with the Don that Is Grand Theft Auto IV. ;)

True talk...although SR2 was the Best and only Best game in the Saints Row Franchise's History,it is 1000x better than the POS SR3 and SR4. Edited by Blood-Is-in-Diamond

Was only joking, that's why I put the whistling smiley. :D

 

I thought SR2 was slightly more fun because of the customization, and the side activities. I still think GTA IV is oe of the best games of last gen, though. :)
