If its just a bunch of hackers like anon or wikileaks the game then count me out. Those lazy neckbeards don't deserve to have a video game. I would rather playing Royal Canadian Curling League 2015.

This is the wrong forum.

But to answer the question, I'd say probably not. The game does have a lot of hype, but not nearly as much as it had last year when it was set to release around the release of the "next gen" consoles.
"The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."—former Nixon domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman

Don't get me wrong, it looks like a great game, but there have been plenty of games with more anticipation than Watchdogs.

Half Life 3 for example.

You posted an image. An image can be called a picture. A picture can be called a "pic." Pic has three letters.


Half Life 3 confirmed.

Don't that sound exciting? Fuck first person shooters, this game's got first person hacking! And terrible multiplayer, too! What a great game, am I right or am I right?

I believe an F-Zero sequel (there hasn't been one in ten years) or Half-Life sequel game would be more anticipated than Watchdogs.

I won't be buying it at launch or anything but I'd give it a go if I had time to kill. Couldn't be worse than CoD and all its clones.
