As part of our regular programming over on our Twitch channel, we look at some of the best games that we feel define a specific genre in Genre Busters.

With Watch_Dogs dominating the multiplatform charts this week, we decided to focus on games which have you hacking, or indeed cracking, as an integral part of the game. A genre we call hackers, although our Twitch viewers have come penned an even better name for the genre - hacktastic games!

We started the show with a quick demonstration of Watch_Dogs Companion: ctOS Mobile, which allows iPhone and iPad users to infiltrate their friends' games and send the feds after them. Uplay has been inundated with folks trying to play this mode, but fortunately Peter and James managed to squeeze a game in. Check out the iPhone vs. PC gameplay footage over here.

Our selection of hacktastic games were PWN: Combat Hacking868-HACKDeus Ex: The Fall, and République

After playing each game for 15 minutes, Peter and James asked our Twitch audience to choose which they thought was the shining example of its kind. Tune in below or over on our YouTube channel to find out which game won!

Remember, we now stream every weekday from 5pm BST / 9am PDT / 12 noon EDT, so head over to our Twitch channel and follow us for a handy reminder each time we go live.
