People are already counting the contenders for 2013's game of the year, but you might want to wait before you place your bet. Watch_Dogs isn't out yet.
Imagine a world where you can control virtually everything.
If you live in the city, that is. Watch Dogs is a hacker/parkour hybrid stealth game by Ubisoft, and it looks awesome. You can control everything that is run via a computer, and in an urban setting that presents some opportunities.
The plot of Watch Dogs is based around information warfare and the worlds rising use of technology. The game is set in Chicago, Illinois, which is one of the few cities to feature a super computer code-named CtOS (Central Operating System). As the name suggests, this computer controls every piece of technology in the city and holds information on every city resident. It is something that the talented anti-hero you play in Watch Dogs, Aiden Pearce, can exploit.
