I have no interest in it personally.
Here's the basic synopsis from Wikipedia:
The narrative of the game follows Aiden Pearce, a highly skilled hacker and former thug. Eleven months after his actions caused the death of his niece, Aiden seeks to bring his own form of justice to the culprits by manipulating Chicago's CtOS, or Central Operating System, a supercomputer that controls every piece of technology in the city and contains information on all of the city's residents and activities which can be used for various purposes.
The storyline of Watch Dogs game is built around the concept of information warfare, data being interconnected, and the world's increasing use of technology—questioning who exactly runs the computers they depend on. The game is set in an alternate reality version of Chicago, Illinois, which is one of many cities to feature a supercomputer known as CtOS. In the game's universe, the Northeast blackout of 2003 was found to be caused by a hacker, prompting the development of the CtOS. Creative director Jonathan Morin has stated that the main story of the game will be 35–40 hours long[/QUOTE]
The main reason people are so excited about this game is because of the innovative hacking mechanic, which will allow you to hack any electronic devices to use for your own benefit. For example you can hack into traffic lights to cause collisions, use them to make barriers pop up to prevent would-be criminals from escaping, hack into other people's phones to steal money from them and acquire data to profile them and many other things too numerous to list here.

Why can't he be? It's an honest question.
