Default Saints Row 4

So I did finish this game a while back. And I must ask what the heck happened to this franchise? It used to be about gang wars(GTA San Andreas style) and it all turned into another random cliche alien game with virtual simulation open world with super powers? It's as if they turned GTA style of gameplay into complete science fiction game. I mean why take it that far?

In the past the ridiculousness of the game was up to you. If you wanted to streak naked or wear woman or other clothes it was up to you. You could also dress as a ganstah or a classy dude/gal. But right now the ridiculousness is no longer part of your choice but the part of the whole plot and setting of the game. Why put it into science fiction wile it could be grounded and could been taken as a serious alternative to GTA?

Anyways I do think it had a lot of pretty funny moments and good ideas, gameplay wasn't bad(reminded me of prototype though). Now they hit a point of no return and I can't see how they can produce anything I could take serious anymore with interesting villains who aren't massively overpowered.

So what are your thoughts? Let's discuss.

No idea why they wanted to go the crazy route with the franchise, personally SR2 is one of my favorite open world GTA styled games from the 7th gen.

SR3 didn't impress me very much, much like you said it was a big step towards the loony style that didn't sit well with me plus killing Gat off pissed me off from the start.

SR4 however I expected to hate but found myself enjoying immensely, I just gave into the crazy atmosphere and more often than not found myself laughing, the super powers were tons of fun to use, so much so that sadly I rarely drove anywhere leaving the cars alone for the most part.

The story doesn't really leave itself open for a sequel though, maybe a alien city or something next time which I wouldn't put pass the developers.

Honestly I was against the direction Saints Row started taking in SR3 but SR4 sold me on it, at the end of the day I find the game fun to play and that's the only reason you really need to buy a game.

Mate, tell me about it. I got Saints Row back in the day in like 2007! jesus christ. I use to play protect tha' pimp, eat my hamburger if I was low on health, pimp my car and go around busting shit up with my crew. Saints Row 2 was quality aswell. Proper gangsta theme shit.


Saints Row 3 came out then it got stupid, I hated it cause they took away competitive. It got too silly, and I never attempted to play Saints Row 4 cause fucking aliens? they fucked this game. Saints Row 1 + 2 = NOSTALGIA good times!

I thought Saints Row 3 was kinda "wtf" but at least it was funny. SR4 went way overboard with superpowers.

I want to see Warhammer 40,000 handled by someone before SR

It seems pretty obvious what happened to me. They realised that no matter what they did they would always be seen as an inferior GTA, so they made it completely different and unique. I don't know how you could call this series 'cliche' at all.

Their strategy has obviously worked as well, just look at the sales.

Better than the third one in that the storyline isn't a complete mess, but still too over the top. Plus, it's basically a glorified mod of the third game.

I never saw Saints Row as inferior to GTA. Saints Row to me was like an indie-gansta type game I could enjoy and which I did enjoy for hours. Then Saints Row got popular, and number two came out and then they went that diabolical route of three and four. Saints Row 1 is a GOAT gansta game. The sound tracks were class.

I read an interview that they always wanted to go crazy even before SR1.

You might not have seen it that way (neither did I, SR2>>>>GTA IV), but a LOT of people did, especially the legions of GTA fanboys.

So like Karma said, it's understandable why they're going this route and trying to differentiate itself from GTA. And I'm ok with that, SR4 is a pretty good game.
