I'm a huge fan of Watch Dogs 1 and 2 and so far I think Legion kinda sucks. I'm planning to do a written review when I complete the game. It's possible I might end up loving it but I can't help but not think so.

This is a video clip I took from a live stream when a friend was asking questions about the game: Watch Dogs Early Impressions

I absolutely loved the first two games from start to finish. I think the new stuff in Legion is cool but a lot of fun got taken away and the optional stuff is forced on you instead. I'd rather just play the first two games. They're a lot more fun.

Oh I think I posted this in the wrong section. Sorry!

Update: it took awhile for me to accept the new Watch Dogs Legion game cuz it does too many things too different for me from 1 and 2 but I'm glad I kept pushing through it. I can say I love it now. I still prefer 1 and 2 lol but this is really good

Thats a bummer I really liked the sequel, not so much the first, and was thinking about picking this one up. Guess I'll wait for a price drop

I had to update the post which I did lol cuz after 15 hours I finally enjoy the game. It just took getting used to it and accepting the differences that I don't like. The main thing is how hard it is to earn money in this game. It's really lame. But the game is good. The campaign is excellent.

Thanks, Eras! I dunno why I can't do links right on this site. lol
There are some minor bugs I've noticed like sometimes editing a post bugging out because there's an emoticon in the post. For links, instead of using HTML code, just copy paste the link into your post as is. The site autogenerates a preview of it so you don't have to bother with the typical "a href" and the "description" text HTML shenanigans.

So what was the main factor to winning you over ? I haven't played the new watchdogs yet but I'm interested in finding out since at first you seemed really adamant about not liking it

lol I wasn't adamant about not liking the game itself. There are just a lot of things that were done better in 1 and 2. Read my review when you have a couple minutes. It was linked here a couple times. :p The campaign is really good. The gameplay is good as well. It's just there there's a lot of "instead of" rather than "in addition to."

Ohh I don't put spoilers in my reviews. I rarely even describe the story in most cases. I mostly say if I like it or not. This review is the first time I've written so much about what I don't like that was changed in comparison to the first two games. I'm pretty sure nothing in it is a spoiler.

I loved it. But then again, I also followed a lot of the information that was doled out over time. I fell in love with it immediately, though there were some things that took some getting used to.

I think the game is awesome. It just definitely ruins things that were better in the first two. Also, the amount of in-game money you earn is horrible.
When you say "the amount of in-game money you earn is horrible," are you talking about the amount or the fact that it's cryptocurrency?

This question makes no sense to me. Why would I care about the name of the money? Currency is currency. All customizations in the game cost over $2 Million. You cannot legitimately make that amount of money without spending a minimum of 300 hours on it. Probably 500.
