I wonder if there is anyone who has bought the old Saints Row game, believing it to be the new one because it has the same title.
I mean, it is one of the games that is backwards compatible with the Xbox One and Xbox Series, so it is possible. And considering most of the reviews for the modern game complain about the "dated graphics", it's not a huge stretch to think that someone out there who has only heard about the game through passing, actually believes it's the new game that recently came out.

One thing is for certain though, if such a person does exist, that person is probably a lot happier than anyone who actually bought the 2022 version.

Speaking of which, all of the talk about the 2022 version just made me want to play the original 2006 version (the major downside of naming your game after a previous entry I suppose). Which I did... and then I followed it with a playthrough of Saints Row 2.
The original Saints Row definitely shows its age, and is also quite difficult too, even on easy, although it does have a great story. But Saints Row 2 (which I finished on hard mode) is an absolute classic that I'd highly recommend. It's not the prettiest game (even for the time), but it is definitely a fun romp from start to finish.

To be honest, all four of the original Saints Row games are good. Some are better than others of course. Fans seem to be split on whether 2 or 3 is better, and I'm of the opinion that 2 is the best. But they're both great games. And despite people's negative opinions on 4, it's still a good game, and arguably better than the first game in the series, which is also a pretty decent game.
Just don't play Agents of Mayhem, it's terrible. It makes this 2022 game seem like a masterpiece by comparison.
I've never played Gat Out Of Hell, so I've got no comment on that one. But I've not heard anything negative about it for what it's worth.
