10 Awesome Things Sleeping Dogs Does Better Than GTA V
7. Stronger Story
Don't get me wrong, GTA V has an outstanding story that a lot of care and love went into, but the premise is just so uninspired, ex-criminal needs money, ex-criminal teams up with old friend and new guy, they do a few robberies and get rich. There's no human element to this story, it's just motivated by greed. I feel like GTA IV's story was much better and I feel the same way about Sleeping Dogs. The deeper the player found themselves infiltrating the Triad, the more and more dangerous missions became, there is always a kind of uncertainty that maybe the protagonist is starting to side with his criminal family and will betray the cops. This suspense is kept right up until literally the very end, it's nerve-racking. It was easy to see how GTA V would pan out right from the start and regardless of the fact it was cool how they got there, there was very little suspense. Sleeping Dogs never fully reveals itself to the player until all the dust has settled.
