I have some money to throw out the window. It's going towards one of these games. It might even go towards both. But only one is getting a pre-order, probably.

May the poll gods guide my debit card.

Personally I would just save it and not waste it on a game you don't really even want...

Oh but I really want both. I'm just slightly uncertain about both. I've been waiting for a good MMO since I quit WoW in 2010, I love Jak and Daxter, and Wildstar looks like both. With player housing.

I've been looking forward to Watch Dogs since it was announced, but skepticism abounds.

What a decisive vote. Seems I may need to wait a while on Wildstar.

Wildstar will be free soon enough. It's bad.

Yeah, any MMO not called WoW or Eve will be free to play within the year.

Laugh at how dark it can get in this place, as if you're eatin' the soul of a demon for strength.

Wildstar is cool but if you want the 'classic WoW' feeling back it's just not going to have it, at least not until you hit the raiding scene. The raiding should feel a lot better than current WoW though, providing you enjoy the social aspect of mmos and don't just treat other players like scenery.

I don't think either will be that great. I voted Wildstar because I believe most gamers will expect it to not be that great, thus no risk. Watch Dogs is expected to be great, so you're risking it buying something it's not going to be.

MMOs are a commitment or a total waste of money. Never have I seen one that I'd play for a month and quit feeling I'd come out of the deal ahead. That being the case, I also wouldn't touch any MMO, ever, before it's endgame has proven to be worth a damn. The first 6 months or so will basically be paid beta testing.

As for Watchdogs, it's an Ubisoft game which means you're highly likely to see a good sale within a short span... unless your preorder happens to come with a decent discount in which case go for it.
