Saints Row is an urban warfare video game series that follows the story of the Third Street Saints gang and derives its name from the gang’s home turf. It was created by Volition and published by Deep Silver. Gameplay is a mixture of nonlinear storytelling with adventure and racing sequences. Notable for its humor, Saints Row’s stories are big on self-referential humor, pop culture references, and parodies. This series shares a universe with Volition’s Red Faction series and features numerous cross-over elements. Game seqments are broken up into mission arcs, and these arcs are unlocked by accruing “respect points”. Users can customize their character’s appearance, clothing, and modify their vehicles at chop shops.
