Even with all the issues I believe it the best game I have ever played.
Going through the game a second time shooting for 100% right now.
Question is, am I missing out on a lot by not having played the others?
I would buy them but wouldn't play them for some time as I will probably restart IV again once I finish. That and I play a lot of Unreal Tournament so gaming time would be limited.

I agree with girishb though.

|If you're a hardcore GTA fan, then you would certainly want to play the other/previous games. If you can learn to live with the graphics of the III era games without trying to compare them to IV, then there's no reason why you shouldn't get them. You'll love all 3 games - III, VC and SA. Get the trilogy pack.|
This guy has spoken.
All old GA games are great.
Maybe GTA3 and VC doesnt have great graphics but the gameplay is very nice.
GTA SA is the greatest GTA game with the biggest storyline
and nice gameplay.
If you dont compare them to IV, you will not get disapointed.
Despites the old games are several years old, they dont bore.
So definitley join these games.

I was looking online for prices and found that buy.com is selling IV for 19.99 with free shipping. That is a pretty dramatic price drop in the last month or so.
Anyway, I'll probably pick up the trilogy in a bit.

I'd definitely play the others. They are just plain better where it counts: story, soundtrack, and fun-factor.
GTA IV has good (not great) graphics (being designed around the handicapped consoles first, not the PC) and the environment is full of details. However, R* concentrated too much on realism and details, but left out the things that made the GTA franchise great. IMO, VC was the best, followed by III, then San Andreas.
I hope the Housers bring GTA back to what it use to be. I have ZERO confidence future GTAs being designed around the PC first, but there is a lot they can improve. I think the Housers need to turn over the reigns to a younger duo, so they can put the fun back. Maybe they are too old and mature for it, because it really shows in GTA IV.

I think you are better of playing the older ones first before GTA IV spoils you and turns you into a graphics whore.
