Before you buy this game!
Watch Dogs was better than Watch Dogs 2 besides the new improvements and hacking opportunities. First game simulates a better hacker life. Everybody is a threat and having friends is dangerous. Hacking was doing it subtile, now you are just a guy who takes off his laptop in the middle of the street like nobody will notice.
The plot is better in the first one also.

Wait, wait, wait, medium-high? Really? So that means I can play it on medium-high too I guess? It says that my GPU is 112% less powerful than the recommended one but maybe I'll give it a try.
