  2. I’ve always highly doubted that the earlier two Saints Row games felt like Grand Theft Auto clones. Like any fans of that franchise, like me, said it was its own thing. Now’ve that the first two were well known to be a lot better than the titles after them within the fanbase, we’ll always have the best reasons to disregard those who’ve said that it’s a cheap clone of Grand Theft Auto.

    I’ve already seen why the developers made the franchise steer clear away from its original gangster roots to a very childish, satire comedy fun-fest. Developers were always afraid of getting slapped with the backlash that can earn them a pretty good amount of infamy from those who never played Saints Row at all by trashing the franchise that it’s a “poor man’s Grand Theft Auto” and they will know the developers for that.

  3. Why are the people so angry about Saints Row being on this list? They said its good and that it is the best alternative to GTA.
