The idea of ditching Grand Theft Auto V for Watch Dogs seemed impossible a few months ago, especially considering the following GTA V has along with how amazing the game is, but it seems some things have changed for certain gamers.
For starters, Watch Dogs will see a release on PS4 and Xbox One while GTA V hasn’t had any such confirmation to date. With that said, the amount of PS3 and Xbox 360 owners is obviously far greater than just next-gen consoles considering they have only just released.
Thanks to the GTA V 1.10 update lacking new features gamers wanted, it looks like some people are threatening to leave the game for Watch Dogs if their desired new feature isn’t introduced. This is exactly how a number of our readers feel, as seen in this comment “I might drop GTA 5 and play Watch Dogs when it launches, the game company takes too long to release DLC like Heists and vehicles like the Rat Loader”. Another added, “Why do they keep holding back the DLC we all really want, I love GTA V but this is getting too much. Watch Dogs looks fresh and I only have time for one game, so hurry up with that DLC Rockstar”.
Of course it is clear why some PS4 and Xbox One owners won’t be playing GTA V. “I had to sell my PS3 to buy the PS4, it is a little upsetting as I didn’t play GTA 5 anywhere as much as I wanted to. I really hope at least a PS4 port releases in 2014, I so want to play it on my new console. To then, I will be playing Watch Dogs”.
Personally, Watch Dogs will never replace GTA V for us but it will temporarily if the PS4 or Xbox One don’t see a launch anytime soon. We’ve pretty much jumped onboard the next-gen console train, and find it hard to step back onto very old hardware after having a taste of something new.
What will make you play Watch Dogs rather than Grand Theft Auto 5?
