Based on disappointment or hype to features like gameplay, stories, activities, free roam, missions and everything in between of the two games: GTA 5 and GTA 4, which one is better and why?

V.

 

IV was a great game, but the dark setting and lack of content really gets to you. Only reason I played it longer than I thought was because of the Ballad of Gay Tony.

Disappointment? Huh?

People around the forums have been stating that GTA 5 is a disappointment, the story, the cops, the missions,... GTA IV on the other hand, also fans were disappointed, boring story, Roman, no planes, lack of customization,...

GTA V. Quite obviously. Just because a few whiny brats are disappointed because their expectations were too high/they have no creativity, does not spoil the game as a whole.

I find them about equal. GTA IV I think has a more polished and overall finished feel but lacks side-material and has pacing issues in the story.  GTA V I believe feels less polished overall with some poor design choices and some features that feel tacked on but a much better story and more to do.

The only thing IV (incl EFLC) has over V is the story, writing and the characters, which are way better.

 

V on the other hand has everything else.

GTA IV if I had to be honest.

I love GTA V don't get me wrong, but there are things about it I loved about GTA IV which were either excluded completely or really toned down.

Unlike some people I loved hanging out with the friends in GTA IV. It gave the game so much more depth. In GTA V it really has no point as you gain nothing by hanging out with them. I used Dwayne's backup for harder missions, LJ's weapons when I was strapped for cash or bombs from Packie when I wanted to gave a bit of fun. The system used in GTA V for lack of a better word is sh*t.

In a lot of ways GTA V has fixed issues with GTA IV, but at the same time has created its own by seemingly discarding things from GTA IV for no real reason.

That's just my honest take on it.

GTA V wins this battle, but V is not on my top 3 list of the best GTA games ever. GTA IV is my least favourite GTA of all time.

We won't know until GTA Online comes out. This is GTA V's calling card. It is why Rockstar made GTA V. As far as single player goes, I would say GTA V. But it's honestly not by a whole lot. The characters in GTA IV were absolute sh*t. 

 

GTA V has some good things going for it over IV.

 

* Buying properties

* Stock market

* Customizing cars

* Golf I feel is a really high quality mini game. I can't wait to play it online with real people.

* The map is much bigger with many types of neighborhoods and terrains.

* Animals to hunt

* Character switching provides more replay value and is innovative

* The characters are much more likeable this time around

 

GTA Online will be the deciding factor between the two games. It could be a real game changer if Rockstar gets it right.

@Bageebi it is a bad story a good atory is when you care about the characters and that the characters have an arch. Micheal in a nutshell " I miss my family." Trevor in a nutshelll" My dad want nice." Franklin in a nutshell" Will you bitches stop complaining" and there is the whole game

True

 

The Ballad of Gay Tony was the strong point in the series, i loved it, even though it was a DLC and had less missions, it was better overall than GTA IV. GTA IV, imo, had a boring character and storyline, and most of the missions were just to do dirty jobs for other people until you finish the game

It's not black and white. 

 

GTA V wins in some aspects(quality of missions, map) while GTA IV  in others(car physics, more "crime" activities)

tbh I liked GTA IV more. I really liked its dark story and setting. It also had more little details than GTA V and better side activities (police missions and stuff).

Have you heard of a misinformed opinion? You got that one. You've been brainwash with todays bad movies that you honestly think the story of V is good. 

 

Did you get confused with Missions/stories being together? If so then I take that back.

I voted 4 because it was good at what it did and for what it is, I enjoyed it more up to now. 5 is more fun on the whole, but I enjoyed 4 more.

Missinformed opinion? Bad movies? what are you on buddy? Have you watched the movie Heat from 1995? Many aspects from the movie are included in this game and it was one of the best movies released in the 90's... so don't come in here and talk about crap like "missinformed opinion" or anything like, I loved V's story and I know many do aswell and you can't do nothing about it, you know why? Because everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Gameplay : GTA 5 - GTA 5 definitely has the better overall gameplay than GTA 4. GTA 5 has a better cover system, better police system, there is a lot to do on the map, and the level of variety in the missions is great.

 

Storyline : GTA 4 - GTA 5 has a lot of very funny moments, but GTA 4 appears to have a much better, deeper and more interesting storyline. GTA 4's storyline was classic stuff. 

 

Activities : GTA 4  - GTA 4 has slightly better side missions and friendship perks. Calling up Dwayne's boys to back you up was a great feature, something like this is not even available in GTA 5. Could have done with this (especially with Franklin) instead of yoga. Poice database vigilante and Brucie's car thefts were great fun too. 

 

Free Roam : GTA 5 - Los Santos just feels much more alive and vibrant than Liberty City in GTA 4, there is just much more going on in the streets. The thrill from the danger of being attacked by gangs in the ghettos, and the excellent random encounter system greatly adds to the fun. 

 

Missions : GTA 5 - GTA 4 had some great missions like Three Leaf Clover, but many of the other missions were repetitive, too much hitman-based go there-and-kill-him missions let it down. GTA 5 offers more much variety and fun in the the missions, you don't feel like you are always doing the same thing most of the time. 

 

Everything in between : GTA 5 - GTA 5 has a bit of everything when it comes to what should be in a great GTA game, something GTA 4 does not. GTA 5 is certainly not perfect, but GTA 4 lacked in one too many areas for me, so GTA 5 wins.

I prefer the story of IV, but still enjoyed the story in V. Overall though, V wins hands down.

what a complete tit.

 

you have to be a troll. a misinformed opinion  . is an opinion with facts in it that are wrong. what does the quality of a story or enjoyment value of it have to do with being misinformed opinion.

 

i like GTA V a hell of alot more than IV but my friend completly disagrees with me. is that a misinformed opinion or just flat out his opinion..... yeah thats right its just his opinion.

 

 

honestly misinformed lol.
