Re: GTA has been dethroned - Sleeping Dogs is the champ now
No sandbox game will dethrone Grand Theft Auto IV until Grand Theft Auto V is released.
GTA IV is the best game I've ever played by a ridiculous margin. Sleeping Dogs is just average and the critics and the general voice of mouth agrees with me. So no. It hasn't "dethroned" anything, even second rate, GTA rip off Saints Row is much higher on the totem pole in terms of free roaming games then Sleeping Dogs.
