Come on, you're exaggerating and going a bit overboard now.
GTA IV definitely had it's flaws and shortcomings that prevented it from being the great game that it should have been - I am the first to express to view and I am also one of IV's biggest critics, ask anyone else on here who is familiar with my posts. But at the same time, IV was still a very good, classic game to play and own, it still provided us with some great, memorable GTA moments and characters.
You may end up regretting having sold your copy of IV. I played IV again for second time and realized I enjoyed it a lot more than I did the first time around, and I even discovered some new things that made the gameplay much more fun for me. You might probably end up wanting to play IV again.
If were you, I'd keep all my GTA titles.
Well ok, maybe it was a bit overkill, but I did hate it. But it is not like I didn't give it a good shot, I played it alot, and even started a second campaign a few months after finishing my first, it just didn't grip me. I felt it was too cold, gritty, industrial. I didn't like Niko's depressing story, I didn't like the majority of the supporting characters - barring Brucie, Packie, Jacob. It's not like your enemies cant be good characters either - look at Lance, Catalina, Big Smoke, Tenpenny, Pulaski. The mafia in IV were the worst ever, the only "wise guy" who didn't make me want to skip the cut scenes was the dying old guy (Gravelli?). Honestly, for me, the only good thing about it (playing wise) was online deathmatch and races. TLAD was a bit better, but not much - still had that cold gritty, empty feel to it and a bad character list. TBoGT was the IV era's saving grace for me.
I notice that my post made me a San An "Fan boy". Ha Ha. I make no bones about the fact that I found San An the best of the series, why that makes me a fan boy exactly? I'm not sure. I am sadly old enough to have played them all from day 1 - from the late 90's top down gta for ps1, so I am naturally going to have a favourite - that kind of thing is not exclusive to GTA. Am I an NFS Carbon fanboy for liking that most in the NFS Series? AC: Brotherhood fanboy? Pro Evolution Soccer 6? It is simply a fact that I liked III, loved Vice City, loved San An more, and didn't like IV.
One thing is for sure though, V looks amazing. IV's best best mision looks like what is going to be the spine of V.

| i loved gta iv. the story the characters ,it was all brilliant, one of the best games ever. I wont discard it|
Hell i still play Assassins Creed (1).
I will have a pre-v playthough though. Might try to reenact COL and JIF (see sig if you dont know what they are)
I think I am like you, with open world games with the graphics, epic storyline and addictive combat then I can relive the adventure over and over again. I think I extend what's actually happening in the game by using my imagination, I sort of pretend things. Is that weird? Like in San Andreas if I accidentally shot one of my homies part way through a mission or gang war I'd have to load game and do it again. Anyone else get that immersed?

I probably won't play it again after V will be released, most likely.. but I still think about installing it again and playing with mods.

| This might be the wrong section and I could have waited a bit but I am curious how the other forum members are going to say goodbye to our beloved GTA IV...|
I for one am just going to cruise the city listening to the NPC's and the radio and play some freemode and deathmatch. Probably most of the night on September 16th...
What the f*ck are you talking about? What are you gonna bury the disc in your back yard? This is so corny. Its a game not a dying dog

Seriously though. As much as I love IV & EFLC, I don't think I can replay them again. I just have so many games I need to play through.

Don't think that's it for IV though, I will certainly go back to it in the future when I don't fancy playing V no more. I order SanAndreas last night too, going to complete that again too.
Posted 15 April 2013 - 05:08 PM
So, technically I never beat it. And I haven't beat the other two expansions either so I may do those too if I got time
Posted 15 April 2013 - 05:14 PM
I hope somebody takes that idea... hahahaha

|I'm completing IV in chronological order with the 2 DLCs right now, absolutely brilliant playing them all together, really get a good sense of how everything happens.|
F*ck it. I'm going to do this too, starting tonight.

|Maybe its just me but once I beat a mission I have no desire to replay it....|
I'm this way with any game. After I do a mission once, I don't want to have to re-do it again.

Now, when September comes, I will just put IV in the shelve and leave it there.
