When games get too silly.

@RockstarGames @VolitionInc #castlegamer

Saints Row the Third is coming out quite shortly. It's pretty much the only competition for the more recent Grand Theft Auro releases.

Now straight off the bat no one can master video games like Rockstar, with the maturity and gritty reality they present in them. So the only way The Saints Row series can really compete is by allowing you to toy around in the open world universe (something GTA limits).

Now that's cool and all but i truly believe that the novelty of slapping people to death with giant blue dildos and flying stupidly powerful jets around a city can get old quite fast. Sure there's a story and such but it's just nothing on what Rockstar can deliver.

Tomonobu Itagaki (Ninja Gaiden developer) plays Saints Rows 3 and goes nuts.

This is the type of game made for the Michael Bay fans out there. No boring bits, explosions, sub par stories and titties. Hey there's nothing wrong with that i just don't think you can be sucked in more to the gaming world of say GTA IV or Red Dead Redemption.

There's something to be said about a game that doesn't give you everything at the start of the game.

I will admit to enjoying the original Saints Row however i didn't finish it as I became disinterested with it after about 8 hours of gameplay. The second game was just plain silly and the third seems to extend that silliness even further.

Anyway you'll see my point in the video below.

Now if your looking to get sucked into an open world game choose from one below.
