Saints Row could give GTA V and GTA series a run for its Money says Cliff Bleszinski

According to ex-Epic Games and Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski, Saints Row is one of few series that could give GTA V GTA series run for its money.

Saints Row vs GTAOn Twitter, Bleszinski praised Volition's work on Saints Row series by stating that gameplay and other elemets are better represented in Saints Row than in Rockstar’s GTA.

Bleszinski tweeted, "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 dicks on their guns."

He further added, "Game mechanic wise I found SR3 to be more fun than many recent GTA games. Controls, pacing, etc... are all great."

And this one a bit personal Tweet, "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."

In a recent THQ auction, Deep Silver acquires Saints Row, Metro and Volition.

Saints row is the filler you play whilst waiting for GTA to come out, Think of it as an ad break

Well, with THQ going bankrupt this is really just a philosophical exercise, isn't it?

Saints row is terrible!!! I get it, for most SR fans thats as close to sex as they're ever going to get but seriously thetebis free porn allnover the net. I din't need it infiltrating my game. GTA is king for a reason. Jokes, story and gameplay that lasts. In a decade GTA will still matter. So not true for SR! I'm a grown ass man. I need a man's game! Not one made for horny little boys!

Cosidaring the fact that 85% of all game mags were promoting SR3 and barly any were doing so for GTA 4 id say the world knows whos wining this war plus there's a reason why they call SR the GTA Killer.

GTA is so so so......... Bad! the only reason GTA fans get so pissed at Saints Row is becose aftter only 3 games SR is litraly knocking on GTAs door. You guys relly need to grow up GTA V will get a worse score than GTA IV and SR 4 will blow it out of the warter.

How completely if putting dicks on guns and dildos everywhere is what makes or breaks a game. I've played both, but I've played GTA for hours and hours on end, and I think I've played Saint's Row for maybe a total of 5 hours my whole life. It's boring. The storytelling sucks...I don't like all the cartoon BS...I don't like these boring cities, I don't like how unrealistic it is. GTA strikes the perfect balance between what is realistic and what is now. Saint's Row is just completely unrealistic and stupid. Saint's Row will never be what GTA is. Nice try.

gta is a game where you can play it over and over and not get bored but saints row 3 was ok , i liked the stuff you could but i think gta v will crush them . Saint row 3 ending was terrible as well as the story line .

Saints row is made for 11 year olds and played by 11 year olds. Grand Theft Auto is made for 18 to 30 year olds and even played by 11 year olds

Have these people even read or seen the things that can be done in GTA V? It's going to blow any "competition" out of the water. This game is being severely underestimated by many people, which surprises me. With what has been confirmed, it will be a game that will revolutionize the industry. It will do what San Andreas did a decade back for the video game industry.
