I hated GTA IV because I didn't find it fun like San Andreas.
It didn't have lots of cool stuff to do, the controls and physics were weird, the cops showed up every time you did something simple and I just hated it.
based on this is GTA V a game I should get?

What about the other games I mentioned?
Compared to GTA V how are they?

All the fun they removed in GTA IV is back in GTA V, so don't worry about that.

As for cops showing up quickly, I think it has the best wanted system yet. If you **** up a civilian with no one around, the cops won't come. If you're way out in the goonies and shoot stuff, the cops won't come because they can't hear you. If you DO beat up someone in an area with lots if witnesses, it takes like 20 seconds for the cops to arrive and in that time you can drive away or hide. On the minimap it shows exactly where each individual cop is looking.

Also if you're being chased by cops, if you manage to switch cars without them seeing you can just drive and they pass you without doing anything because they think you're still in the previous car. I had a 3 star wanted level and just casually drove by the cops looking for me. It's a great system, and being chased is actually fun.

GTA V is the best sandbox game in a modern setting, Red Dead Redemption is the best sandbox game in a western setting. Get both, but if you had to choose I'd go with GTA V first before everyone completes it and spoils the crap out of everything.
