The hit action-packed video game "Watch Dogs" is one of the many videogames that could make for a very interesting movie. The plot of the game is simple enough to follow and the game-play has been widely praised by game critics. Watch-dogs has a relatable main character with straightforward motivation and determination. In the game, players can take control of a vigilante named Aiden Pearce who can hack into various electronic systems and devices which allows you as a player to complete numerous objectives while navigating a series of obstacles.
here is the official synopsis for the game:
Set within a fictionalized version of Chicago, Illinois, the single-player story follows a hacker and his efforts to seek revenge after the accidental death of his niece. The open world design lets players freely roam Chicago, which includes the urban city, open countryside, and slums.
In 2013 Sony announced that they would partner with Ubisoft to bring Watch Dogs to the big screen but so far the project has been kept under wraps since it was first revealed. Currently the film has no designated release date and there is no word on when the production of the film will begin. Ubisoft has taken a pledge to bring video-games to life in a way that honors the source material and provides a quality movie-going experience for the audience. We can only hope that Sony lets the creative team and director do their jobs and bring us a captivating film.
Most importantly though, Watch Dogs deals with themes that are very relevant in today's idealized technology based society such as the idea of privacy and how the intrusion of privacy has become more wide spread thanks to technology. In the world we live in almost every bit of data is on the web and it is all connected, we are more connected then ever, but there is a very real price to pay for having this much connectivity. As technology continues to rapidly advance we often convince ourselves that privacy is merely an illusion and that transparency has taken on a whole new meaning. Evidently if this film gets made it will simply reiterate and reinforce our current or developing views on technology, privacy, and security.
