Sleeping dogs is one of those games thats pretty good, but had a really entertaining quicklook so everyone in the community is jumping on the "its amazing" bandwagon so they can feel like they're part of the crew. Don't get me wrong, i think its a pretty good game, i really enjoyed playing it. It's just no where near as good as GTA5, get real guys. If it wasn't for the vinny quicklooks no one here would be saying it was so good.
But this is one of those mind numbingly dumb arguments "the game i like is better! no mines better!". It's just made even more pointless when you factor in the obvious bias of everyone siding with sleeping dogs because of the quicklooks.
Sleeping dogs does pretty much everything better than GTA 5. GTA 5 felt like a chore to play and the city crafted in sleeping dogs was way more fun to explore.
Edit: Also, I see some people saying GTA has better graphics and having played sleeping dogs on PC, I have to say you are just wrong.
