So normally I play games in a straight shot but with Watch_Dogs I’ve been kind of breaking it up almost episodically. I’ve never finished the main story and after this most recent play session I Don’t think I will.
A while back I wrote about how I felt that Clara should have been the main character of the game. She’s the most interesting character, has the best story, is clearly inspired by the modern cyberpunk heroin brought on by films/books like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and they could have played that up.
Aidan’s story is not interesting and as a character he’s a blank wall. Jordi Chin is a more interesting character, better acted and more fun to watch. Same goes for Clara, and T-Bone and pretty much every supporting character in the game, even the villains like IRAQ and Defalt are more interesting.
And then spoilers here….
The game one by one removed these characters in different ways. Writing them out of the story by death, or other means (mostly death) and leaving Aidan as this lone character and I just… I don’t care anymore. I don’t care because the only characters I cared about are gone.
I know this game came out like 9 months ago, but like… UGH. So annoying.
BUT now I don’t want my copy because I’ll never finish but stupidly I got it as a digital copy so I can’t sell it, trade it in… I will own this game forever and I really don’t want it.
