| I'm playing through a save of GTA IV atm and the settings I have don't make it look grey. |
I wish people would adjust their settings as GTA IV can look quite vibrant, rich and colourful with the right amount.
Or am I wasting my time saying that?
Can't believe a GTA IV lover like you hasn't noticed Miami.
Well, before it rains, the game sort of becomes grey but that's how it is. In real-life too before it rains, it becomes cloudy and grey. I personally don't have a problem with it.
| Gameplay wise, I think comparisons had to be made, at least show just how far IV had come since the III-era. I'm sorry, I know you really like IV, but SA did have better gameplay and content overall than IV in my opinion (and that of many |
That is incorrect. SA did not have more content. If it did have more content than IV, the file size would be more than 20 GB, yet San Andreas is only 4.7 GB, IV is at least 20 GB.
While IV did cut some features from SA, it added some, to make up for it.
Having played both San Andreas and IV, I'll give you a list of features for both the games, other than the map and story.
2) Ability to fly planes and helicopters.
3) Play pool.
4) Date girlfriends.
5) Customize your car.
6) Clothing Customization.
7) RPG character development.
These are the MAIN features than San Andreas had.
1) Expanded use of the cellphone. You can now use your cellphone to call your friends, access multiplayer, change your theme etc. So many features in one point.
2) Play pool, bowling and darts.
3) You can now not only date girl-friends but you can also hangout with your friends. You can either call them or they will call you to arrange a plan.
4) Clothing Customization equal to San Andreas.
5) Cover system. You can take cover behind almost anything.
6) Usage of Computers and the internet.
7) Ability to take a cab ride.
8) GPS system.
There are so many features in the features itself. Plus if I include minor features for IV and San Andreas, IV will still have more content.
| SA's world just felt more alive and full of energy with regards to what was happening in the streets, especially with random crimes, shootings and gang wars that erupted out of nowhere. |
There is no way that San Andreas felt more alive than LC. LC had more detail, much more detail. It feels like your in the as Miami said.
Yes San Andreas was more dangerous but that does not make the city feel more alive than LC. There is simply no way that SA is more alive than LC.
| SA had so many fun and more interesting things to do, a great deal more than IV had. |
I've already stated that IV has more content than SA had in my first point.
| It does not automatically make SA the better game at all, but in these areas, SA definitely wins over IV. |
No, it does not, I've already stated why and this is why it is invalid to compare SA to IV. Both games were from different eras, different platforms. If you want to compare a game with GTA IV, take Mafia II or Saints Row II. I'd accept then, but I will not accept comparing SA to IV.
