Was GTA IV that bad?

I didn't think it was that bad, even though I enjoyed the previous 3 a little more

no and who made it seem that way anyways? a few bitter forum dwellers with elitist opinions?
the game was generally widely praised by gamers and industry media. If anything it was THAT good

yeah, I kinda liked the simulation feel with the driving. At first you're used to the classic feel of the previous, but later on it's actually pretty good

Ya usually by people who don't drive in real life or can't drive in games in general. Brakes ftw

I hated Niko, the story was boring, playing it was a chore. But no it wasn't that bad. I can see what successes the game did well, and it did it in spades. I just didnt enjoy playing it.

Lol classic feel = flying 100 mph stopping on a dime and turning a perfect 90 degrees with a press of a button

"Playing it was a chore" sums up my feelings. The story wasn't engaging and playing it just wasn't "fun". I thought it did a lot of things well. But the actual game was a tedious grind.

I loved the graphics, the music, tha gameplay. What turned me off fast was the constant phone calls. COUSIN COME PLAY BOWLING BALLS WITH ME!

I play a game to experience a story not because I have ADHD and need constant beckoinings for other random ish in a game. :P

i really liked the car physics.

but i didn't like the way the cops would shut you down as soon as you started having any fun.

i didn't like any of the social aspects.

it was a bit dull and boring. there was nothing to do except the main missions (and taking your cousin on a date)

the only customisation options were which brown jacket you want to wear. (slight exaggeration)
