Jackimo1999 has registered their disagreement about the genres applied to this game
Stealth and Action-Adventure should be added to bring this game into line with its predecessor, Watch_Dogs. The stealth and A-A elements are more prominent in this game than the original.

personally i believe there is LESS stealth in this, as the skills makes it a lot easier to just gun through everything (or get others to do it)

But that doesnt change the fact that i agree in Jackimos suggestion, as it still fits in both genres

It's probably deserving of stealth though I'll point out that I Zerg rushed everything with my machine gun if I could.

Zerg rush? by building lots of small machineguns fast, and attack your opponent before he has his defenses up?

On a serious note...
stealth fits the sites definitions. And surely does it better than other examples that have been flagged stealth like f.ex far cry 4. So if nothing else, do it for consistency.

The reason NOT to flag here, would be based mainly on the difficulty of the game, instead of the mechanics. There is no doubt that the developers intention is that you take a stealthapproach to all your missions, and you are punished for not doing it.
That the difficulty of the game is then laughable, so most people (including me) would just gun through it to save time, shouldnt affect how the game is flagged IMO. (again, the same can be said about far cry, which is the reason i havent been "fighting" that flag)

I was actually using the WoW version of the term which basically means rushing in full force without regard for the mechanics or abilities of your enemies.

Guys, please comply with Starcraft common usage for terms like Zerg, out of respect for the term's origins. wink

Agree with the submission. Recommendation:
Add: Action-Adventure; Stealth

So what's happening with this? It's now been a week and no one opposes adding these genres but there's been no public activity so are action-adventure and stealth getting added or not?

Hey now. I'd say that its adopted meaning from another Blizzard title is certainly fair game and generally more applicable!

Still is awaiting another GT member to have the time to examine the thread. If they concur with the changes, then they will move forward. If they disagreed then a third will need to take a look and ideally the tie would be broken.

It has now been a week since it's been a week. For those following along at home, that means a fortnight. How busy are the other members of the genre team? This is a clear cut case. It shouldn't be taking this long.

I cannot speak for the schedules of the rest of the team. I can only confirm that the submission remains in the official queue for another set of eyes, and apologize for the delay.

Clown agreed and already added the A-A and Stealth tags to the game. Thank you everyone for your patience.
