 Saints Row Could Give GTA "A Run For Its Money" If it Lost the Dildos, Says Bleszinski
topic by dagrest84 - 01-25-2013, 10:25 AM


Ex-Epic Games man and Gears of War co-creator Cliff Bleszinski has been speaking out about two of open world gaming's big hitters on Twitter recently, stating that he thinks Volition's Saints Row series could "give GTA a run for their money," but only if the studio dispenses with long rubbery marital aids.

"Saints Row. Keep the crazy action and game mechanics. Lose the gimps and dildos and purple suits," Bleszinski's Twitter musings begin. "If your average guy is embarrassed to be playing a sequence in a game when his wife walks in that's a bad sign."

Bleszinski's tweets continue, noting that a more serious approach might benefit the Saints Row games: "The SR team is amazing. Dildo holds them back. It's immature. Make an open world game that's more Michael Mann/HEAT/Collateral/Training Day.

"The SR team is one of the few that could actually give GTA a run for their money. BF didn't go after COD by putting di#ks on their guns. Yes, I think the dildo is hilarious. (I also had a big dildo as a prop in our wedding's photo booth.) It doesn't help industry perceptions."

The Gears man did go on to praise Saints Row's fundamentals however, noting: "Game mechanic wise I found SR3 to be more fun than many recent GTA games. Controls, pacing, etc... are all great."

That said, "once you put a dildo in your game it doesn't matter if your controls, pacing, graphics are all great. You're 'that game with the dildo.'"

Personally, we think it'd be a damn shame if Saints Row were to shed it's more ridiculous leanings. It is after all what sets it apart from Grand Theft Auto. We wouldn't change Saints Row one bit. Would you?

Saints Row The Third took the corny #### too far. Saints Row 2 is hands down the best open world game of all time

I found it corny at times because I felt like they were trying to hard to be different. Cliffy B does have a point though because if Volition got rid of all the gimmicks that sets Saints Row apart from GTA...they would give them a run for the money. I was playing some of the Lost of the Damned the other day and that #### is just bloody boring

could not agree more with this statement. thought that game was crack running co-op and ####. but you get to a certain point where you cant take the game seriously anymore. its tailored for 13 year olds and people who havent grown out of family guy humor.

If there were to do it right then they could, there's only one big open world game quite like GTA and that's GTA, competition would be nice.

We all know GTA/R* is king. They could release the game without any promo and it'll still sell millions.

Call me crazy but Red Dead Redemption can go down as one of the G.O.A.T open world games. I never had as much fun playing GTA as I did with RDR.

I enjoyed Saints Row 2 and The Third more than I did GTA IV, so that's all that matters to me. I don't need a game to take itself seriously as long as it's fun.

it's not for a lack of trying though

other companies have tried to compete with gta but they just can't...it's not gta's fault that they dominate the genre with an iron fist
