I just bought Watchdogs for PS4 for $19.99

An open-world sandbox game centered around hacking. I must say this game looks like a lot of fun to play. I have been wanting to play Watchdogs since it was first announced, so when I heard that Watchdogs for PS4 was going on sale for $19.99 at my local EB Games I decided to pick up the game. The PS4 version of Watchdogs is said to contain 60 minutes of EXCLUSIVE gameplay.

The hacking, shooting, driving aspects of the game all look well done and seem enjoyable to use while completing a variety of missions or getting away from the cops. The environment as well as the graphics also looks well-polished. This game looks like another GTA-esque game with the added element of hacking things. I hope that this game is not too similar to GTA because if I want to play a GTA like game I will just go play GTA V, however from what I have seen this doesn't seem to be the case.

This game for some reason, also reminds me of a show I used to watch and kind off miss called Person of Interest. I haven’t started playing the game yet but from what little trailers and gameplay footage I have seen, this game seems to have some very similar elements to the show including the main character and especially the ‘hacking’ aspect of the game. For those of you who watch the show or have seen it will know exactly what I am talking about. It just makes me wonder where UBISOFT got the idea for Watchdogs from and if it actually was inspired from the show Person of Interest or not. I doubt that is the case, but I may have to look into it later as it is something I am very curious about.

The critics rate Watchdogs at around 8/10 – 8.5/10 while the user reviews seem to be much lower for some reason. I have a feeling that many people are comparing this game to GTA V while it is not supposed to be anything like that and secondly I read about the developers reducing the graphics of the game from the original displayed at E3. I guess I will just have to play the game myself and see if the graphics issue is really as big a deal as people make it out to be.

As for now though I am really excited that I got Watchdogs for the cheap price of $19.99 as I was always interested in playing the game and was going to buy it sooner or later. I think $20 for a PS4 game is a pretty sweet deal overall.

My only problem is that I seem to be amassing a ridiculous amount of games both for the PS4 and PC and have little or no time to ACTUALLY play them all. I am going to have to start playing Watchdogs soon or it will end up in the pile of games that I have not even opened yet.

So for those of you who also shop at EB Games from time to time, Watchdogs for PS4 for $19.99 will be on sale till April 7th, 2015 I believe, so if you have been planning on getting the game as well, now is as good a time as any.
