When I heard that Ubisoft, the company behind Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed, were making an open world game with technology and surveillance as game play mechanics, I didn't know what to think. The first thing that came to mind was Grand Theft Auto with James Bond's gadgets. After all of the news and game play I have seen, I am very excited for this upcoming game. Watch Dogs takes place in Chicago following hacker Aiden Pearce. Pearce can hack the Central Operating System (CtOS) and take control of almost all of the technology in the city. On top of being a hacker, Pearce can fight and use firearms. This is a great premise and concept that I am sure Ubisoft will expand upon should it be successful.
The reasons that I find myself anxiously waiting for this game to release is that there has never been a game like this before and this could set the tone for the next generation of consoles. Watch Dogs builds off the fact that our society is more dependent on technology than ever before. This makes releasing the game now have a stronger impact because our society does rely on technology, but it is not as extreme as in the game. We are essentially in the middle, we are not there yet but we still use technology. This game would have less of an impact thirty years ago because technology wasn't as dominating as it was back then, people wouldn't relate to it. What I am able to relate to in the game is that it is possible. I want to see the direction this game takes, is the message we take away from this game gonna be to stay the course we are on or to try to limit our exposure to technology? This could be the game that starts the new generation of consoles out strong and sets a standard for games to come. Hopefully it will be in our hands very soon.
