It's a good game but my least favourite GTA for sure (only counting main series from GTA3-5). I didn't like any character, the driving, or the changes to Liberty City. The radio was also forgettable compared with the previous games, which was a big part of the enjoyment for me.

I also didn't like as a PS3 player being cut out of the DLC for over a year. Still haven't played either as well as the Fallout 3 DLCs because by the time they came to PS3 who the fuck cared.

I told you to stop doing this, it makes everything go from awkward to bizarre. Why do you have this hangups? Legit, it is not the same.

That's a good question, explain the plastic fetish. And then the phone blind pull. And then what I had to drink for dinner tonight. Garlic? Thanks. But who are you trying to convince me you are?

I'm trying to finish it by the end of this year. I'm having issues with the Irish guy's bank heist and a getting the timing right so I can date Law lady.
I've only played 4 and 5 (and 2 once but briefly) so I like 4 more than 5 because my 5 download is broken, I think, because it doesn't save my game although I've played online a lot (now I can't because the cars have so much weird junk on it my game lags to a halt) but back when I did I mainly did the team events with the cars and shit. It was alright.
I really like Niko as a character but I'm not the biggest fan of being swarmed by NPCs because I tend to be more into the car aspect of the game than the shooty bits.

There is something about driving cars in this game that feels soo good. I haven't felt that way since playing Driver on the PS1. Driver is still better. I pity the fools who didnt pass the test.

My problem with it is that my mouse aim (even when I'm not in game) moves in weird intervals and I can't aim that well in the game. I'm also more of a melee-parry-dodge-hit-block player but I've done the bank mission a million times in GTA5 so I'll get through it, eventually. Eventually... Eventually..............

Worst game in the modern franchise. I'm firmly in the "fucking hated the janky physics engine" camp. Driving was absolute dogshit, and all other opinions are wrong. Only thing it did an exception job at was filling the world with great little atmospheric details, but not enough to distract from the fundamentally garbage gameplay.

I loved it and I'm replaying it on the XBOX 1 for the 4th time. I had started playing 5 but all of a sudden got nostalgic for 4 and the driving so I went ahead and bought it and I'm still playing through it again. I don't enjoy some of the missions and the constant calls to hangout even though you can just reject them. It actually looks and runs much another on Xbox 1 than it did on the 360 which is great. Same with rdr. I play it a bit and then play something else like doom or rdr in between. I should get back to playing 5 though but I felt a little but burnt out, those shitty pot smoking missions really made it tedious.

I remember my group of friends having a blast with the new driving in GTA4 at the time. The crashes were so much more interesting and the driving was actually difficult, there was something to get better at. And running over pedestrians looked way cooler.

And then there was our fat friend william who just sucked so bad at it, so he'd just cry and proclaim the game sucked. Are you fat william?

this Radio was always funny in GTA but the vehicle physics in that game... man


Car accidents were the best, flying through windshields just hits different.

I think my favourite GTA game. I loved the random stranger missions and the driving. Most of the characters as well. Online was great with the deathmatches and cops v robbers. I couldn't really get into GTA5 though.

All in all, very slow and boring. The driving physics were not fun. Mandatory races were not fun. Story missions were not fun. Free roam was not fun. Even with cheat codes, free roam quickly became boring. The only entertainment I got out of this game was from multiplayer making my own story mode with my friends, but that's just an indictment of the game itself that we had to make our own content in order to enjoy it. The story was entertaining enough that I slogged through. Just because I cared about the characters and wanted to see what happened to them. And the helicopters were fun. The attack helicopter specifically but also the non-attack helicopter too. Helicopter gameplay was solid.

I really really enjoyed GTA4 until I unlocked the second safehouse. The story was cool and you didn't feel like a fucking ninja assassin with access to the best weapons in the game. Playing the criminal immigrant was fun, but once you got into bigger and more elaborate missions, it started to get boring.

That mission where your drug deal gets ambushed by cops and you have to escape an island with a four star wanted level... always pissed me off.

The last act in the game suffered a lot from lack of meaningful content I think. I'm working for two or three random Italian mobsters who I don't care about and their missions are go here -> shoot that.

The city felt really alive and detailed, but I think that was only a traffic thing.

Still loved the radio though, really funny for the time. Going back and listening to the Right wing radio station really reminds me how formative the mid-2000s were to the Tea Party and the modern conservative movement. It's a parody, but if you played it today; no one would be able to tell that it was fake.

I wouldn't mind someone correcting me if I was using the wrong word as long as they weren't being a huge asshole about it. Sometimes people correct mistakes out of empathy rather than just being a wise-ass or know-it-all. Even if others understand what you mean, wouldn't it be nice to have the right word to use in the future during real life exchanges by having someone gently correct you online on a message board in a place where the stakes don't matter and nobody is at risk of getting embarrassed?

What I like about GTA 4 is that the guns aren't crazy accurate which results in shootouts actually lasting a while and feeling pretty tense.

The story is alright but it loses a lot of steam towards the end.

I liked the driving because pulling off some crazy weaving through traffic or a high speed turn are actually hard to do and rewarding when you get it right.

Unlike GTA5 quite a few of the radio stations are pretty good and memorable.

love the driving after i switched to first person.

it is not fun from flying angle, but put it in first person and it is tight, responsive and you feel as though you're in a super amazing handling car able to drive stupid fast and maneuver really accurate.

i think the camera change came later in production, and that driving was meant to be first person

Pretty cool game. I played it on 360 a decade ago and replayed it on PC with graphics mods late last year and through the expansions earlier this year. Damn shame the game is so terribly optimized, though. When I started playing it before installing mods the FPS would wildly fluctuate from sub-30 FPS to over 100 FPS constantly, with the worst being while driving in a fast vehicle, and it still did the same shit even with the mods.

It's entertaining, though. The story is pretty lame, but the dialogue makes up for the lame story being told. All of the radio stations and TV programs you can watch are also great (as is being able to import your own songs into a special radio station that adds commercial breaks and DJ interludes between the songs). That being said, though, there's a lot of non-story shit to do in the game that gets pretty boring before you finish off, like the cop missions or the minigames and dating. The biker DLC is also really lame and gay, though. I guess there was like a resurgence in glorifying biker culture in the mid 2000's, but these days it just comes off as really stupid and gay. Speaking of gay, the second expansion is great, though.

But yeah, tl;dr GTA IV is a game everyone should play once to experience.

I noticed a lot of people complain about the GTA5 story. While I do agree its pretty lame, GTA stories were never it's strong suit. They were practically non existent in the early games. Even when it made the big move to a 3d environment with GTA3, it barely had any. San Anrdreas and 4 were the exception, They were actually trying to write something good and they somewhat succeeded, but everything else was pretty lame to begin with and five is not all that different from what you would expect from the series.

I thought GTAV's story sucked the first time I played it. Me and my roommate always come back to taking turns playing GTAV for some reason, and it's really grown on me.

There are even bits that I genuinely love, like Michael's ketamine? trip, some good symbolism there. Or Trevor's love affair with Patricia. Honestly I found Franklin to be entirely forgettable and boring. But Michael's sarcastic asshole personality and his family that hates him, basically everything about Trevor, and the relationship between the two...I enjoyed and I gotta give rockstar a little credit. For me it's more interesting than San Andreas and even GTA4, and I used to completely prefer both of those games.

But I know I'm in the minority there

Great physics, especially with euphoria engine. Pushing people down stairs and whatnot never got old. Driving/drifting was very satisfying to get good at too. It's a shame they dumbed down the physics for GTA V. I couldn't really stay interested in the story of GTA IV though, so I never finished it, but I had fun just fucking around in the city. I also liked hanging out with Roman, driving with him on the back of a motorcycle, crashing and seeing him comedically fly through the air and get the message that he was injured. Then later get the call and pick him up from the hospital just to do it again.
