GTA V versus Watch Dogs – A last gen current gen comparison

Take a look at this GTA V versus Watch Dogs video which showcases how well last year’s release GTA V holds up against this year’s Watch Dogs in various scenarios with things like NPCs, foliage details and such like being focused on. GTA V is seen as the definitive open world action game of last gen although it’s quite clear the game struggles in many areas to match the levels of details in the next gen game as expected. That said, ┬áboth games look like offering levels of immersion that are top quality.

  1. OK and what is this video supposed to proove .. Come on now how many gens have their been?? And you still don’t understand the first of the new gen console games don’t really look that much better to the last amount of old console games. Until like two years later after they understand the hardware better..

      doesn’t change the fact that Watch Dogs looks like shite. If GTA 5 comes to PC I’m going to just buy that instead cause modders will have an easier time with R* coding.

      • Lol I disagree watch dogs looks shite.. Now it may not be the best visually stunning game on the new gen,but its a pretty good start for a game like watch dogs that has that same o same o,stealing cars shooting ppl GTA mixed action game feel to it.. And again graphics well get better on both consoles as time goes by.. And PC is a forever upgradeable platform and that speaks for its self..

          very true.. I hope Ubi wises up and creates some creation kits… GTA4 modders might be die hard funs, but those enb guys get around.
