I have two problems with GTA IV.

1. The character - I can't relate to playing as the bad guy. I could get behind doing bad things for a good reason, like Walter White from Breaking Bad. But just doing crime because it's fun? I don't understand that, so it's not very enjoyable to me.

2. The missions in GTA IV were too repetitive. Get in a car, go here, kill this guy, escape from cops. Get in a car, go here, try to kill this guy, chase him, kill him, escape from cops. That's it! That's basically 90% of the game. It gets boring after about 3 times.

GTA V might fix number 2, but definitely not number 1.


I got to Season 4 episode 11 and stopped watching Breaking Bad. Walter is a dumb ass and it becomes clear that he isn't doing bad for good, he's doing it because he's a dumb ass.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

I'm loving GTA V and can't wait to get it on PC. Spent probably 30 hours on single player and almost 30 hours online.

I thought that was the point of playing a GTA game. If you want to act like a hero, there's other games for you to enjoy like SingStar or Just Dance 4.


So, you feel like a hero when you play SingStar or Just Dance? That's kind of fruity, man.

I really loves San Andreas, but struggled to get through GTA IV. I kind of lost interest halfway through, though I did eventually finish it. I really like the ballad of gay tony as well. To me, that was the best part of the game.

Topic title: "If you've played GTA IV and didn't like it, you will LOVE GTA V"

Pretty bold claim eh? So the whole world either likes GTA IV and possibly GTA V, or not GTA IV and definitely GTA V.

I've thoroughly played GTA V, but there are many elements of GTA IV that I find better.

IV did a better job of recreating a real city, so to speak. I've been listening to NYC radio all my life, and Rockstar was spot-on when making GTA IV's in-game radio sound authentic. V's radio seems very Saints Row-ish, and dull.

It feels like since Rockstar's offices are located in NY, they have a lot of know-how and experience with what NY and northern NJ look like, but when it comes to GTA V, it seems like Los Santos was made with Wikipedia and Google Images as references.

Too bad the city in IV is boring and has no variety.

GTA5 looks promising which is great because I never even finished GTA4. Very disappointing. I say it "looks promising" because I'm avoiding the majority of the info/videos on it since I'd rather play it as purely as I can by the time it eventually reaches PC.

I though GTA IV is the best in the series, though I haven't tried GTA V yet.
