What Is It?
The 2022 action-adventure video game Saints Row (2022)
/ Fake Row / Gen Z Row / Hipster Row / Cringe Row developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver, it is a fake reboot of the real Saints Row series; and it is the fifth game in the franchise, but I will treat it like it is not part of the franchise.
Here is how Metacritic describes this fake Saints Row & sorry excuse of a video game:
Welcome to Santo Ileso, a vibrant fictional city in the heart of the American Southwest.
In a world rife with crime, where lawless factions fight for power, a group of young friends embark on their own criminal venture, as they rise to the top in their bid to become Self Made.
As the future Boss, with Neenah, Kevin, and Eli by your side, you’ll form The Saints and take on Los Panteros, The Idols, and Marshall as you build your empire across the streets of Santo Ileso and battle for control of the city.
