Watch Dogs is better with Team Fortress 2 characters


Hat_Dogs
Jun 25
 
STBlackST did a terrific job with this Team Fortress 2 short, Hat_Dogs. It's a riff on Watch Dogs' "hack everything" mentality using characters we actually like. Impressive, and -- with the inclusion of that bread line -- timely.
