Liberty City has feeling unlike Los Santos...Dark atmosphere, mystery feeling, secrets to find. Lc is the best gta city ever.It is great to go back to Lc but I can't say the same thing for Ls.

There's nothing in GTA V that makes me want to jump into Single Player(I've never touched GTAO and I never will.), I don't know how any one can actually enjoy it for long periods of time, yeah sure it's a very pretty game but the gameplay is poor and there's not a whole lot of fun activities to do, with IV/EFLC I got Vigilante missions, Gang Wars/Bike races, Drug Wars and Triathlons(way better than Vs lmao, seeing as how pressing down the D-pad cancels it, plus I hate running and biking as an "activity" give me a f*cking boat and car.) Nothing about Los Santos pulls you into its game world, all the pedestrians are f*cking stupid and they cry too much probably the worst of the series, at least IV made them feel varied from one another, same with each borough. All people care about V is how well it sold copies, it's f*cking dumb. "Oh its made a lot of money, it's a good game. :^)" retard kids.

Yeah, I'll never understand why people like to play objectively worse games/sequels. Take also Test Drive Unlimited 2 for instance. It's a driving game, but the driving mechanics/physics are horrible, the core part of the game, among many other things, yet some people prefer it over the objectively superior Test Drive Unlimited 1.

I played both and I can tell you why:

 

"Ugh, car physics are horrible, they took Lamborghini away, copied half of the last game into this one and cut th... Wait, is that Ibiza? Wow, GOTY!!"

Nah more like: ''Wooow, I can actually walk in the car showrooms and houses I've bought! Best driving game of all time!''

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way about TDU2. It was hot garbage, TDU1 was far better especially for its time. People kept praising it like it was the best thing since sliced bread in the Forza thread. I couldn't stop laughing. And yeah, I haven't touched GTA V or GTA:O in a while. Nothing makes me want to. I've been playing TBoGT a lot and driving around looking at this city never gets old.

I saw that. It made me laugh that people thought TDU2 being better came down to being able to buy houses and sh*t because that's totally want I want to be doing in a RACING game. :rol:

 

Well I don't really against TDU2, but I've had way more fun with Forza Horizon 3.

 

Anyway back on topic. I think what I enjoy the most about Liberty City/Alderney is simply being able to walk around without being harassed by annoying A.I. The 3D era had homicidal gangs (particularly GTA III) which made enjoying the game worlds a chore IMO and in GTA V there are the dickhead peds that'll lose their mind for standing too close them.

 

Maybe GTA IV could've used some more random crime, but I like that I can walk around soaking everything up without being annoyed which is why I've spent more time exploring the city on foot than any other GTA city.

I like the little random things that aren't scripted(well they don't feel scripted) like if I'm walking around Playboy X's apartment and I see a fat cop chasing after a fat biker, or some cars crash into each other and the drivers fight until one dude gets knocked out lmao, then the winner gets back into their car and drives away. Thing is in LC I don't feel "annoyed" by the pedestrians, I can walk around the map and wait at a crosswalk without some fool calling the cops on me, the cops talk sh*t to you but they aren't hostile 24/7.

GTA4  gives you a feeling of being there, being a part of a living breathing city, i can just walk around sometimes and just stand and watch the peds interact, fights break out, cops chase people, you get random gun fire sometimes and you hear the peds screaming and running.

GTA5 feels dead, the peds are stupid, stand next to one they call the cops, pull a gun they all run away, every car spins when you pull away, the crashes are lame, yes it looks great but it has no soul, its surface stuff only it doesnt go as deep as GTA4, i never get tired of GTA4, im on another play through with Niko right now, i gave up on missions in GTA5, i dont like the story or the characters.

Online GTA5 is a mess its just stupid and Rockstar expect you to pay for stuff ? not happening i can tell you.

Oh man, you guys are so right, too drunk to explain myself like you did guys, but sh*t; you just describe why GTA 4 is so unique.

Walking through Middle Park is really cool too especially during the afternoon in-game. Tons of NPC's. A small little fitness class going on near some trees, a few joggers around, and some peacefully reading a book on a bench with ambient birds chirping all around throughout Middle Park. I've also noticed a few NPCs holding maybe a three or four sentence little convo and not some bullsh** one-liner one and last but not least can't forget the infamous saxophone man.

Something about the lighting in GTA V makes it look and feel even more dead. Idk it's just so flat looking. The atmosphere ia flat and it rarely ever takes me away from the fact that I'm just playing a video game.

I've been playing TLaD again and I realized how much of a better game it is than V, maybe even IV. It rains more often in TLaD for me, looks good with the noise effect on, especially when the rain has this greenish haze f*cking awesome.

I like the noise effect too. Would've been cool in GTA IV.

I played the game again just now for the first time in a while, I forgot how great LC looked, and how great the NPC's are with their reactions, be it AI or physics. I went on a hospital rampage for about 3 hours straight. Then got called by Carmen for a date right after lol.

I hate to compare to GTA V constantly, but I agree that V is empty. I tried playing through the game again yesterday with no mods at all, and I had to stop. There's nothing fun to do, nothing to get lost in, even the story feels like a chore to go through.

Whenever I see people on gaming pages on Facebook, Reddit, other forums etc constantly say V is great and IV sucked, I just honestly wanna know what they see in the game, or how they play it. Like, do they mod the game, or are they talking about Online? Cause single player is so empty to me, I wanna know what they actually do in V to have fun for hours on end. I just can't do it without mods, but that was never a problem with IV for me.

I was watching Jason Takes Manhattan last night and during the Times Square sequence it made me think of Star Junction. :inlove:

 

It astounds me how faithful Liberty City was created because that's what I usually start thinking of when I watch NYC themed movies/tv shows.

The transit is more lifelike, sure you can't roleplay as a normal driver but at least not everyone is driving a super shiny supercar, cars in LC seem affordable and sometimes they are dirty. Trevor is supposed to be driving a rust bucket but it stills look ready for a car show.
