I'll just lump IV, TLAD and TBOGT together.

 

Things I dislike:

 

The driving controls when it comes to motorbikes. Motorcycles handle just fine, but with little motorbikes, I find myself swerving all over the place.

 

The lack of customization, both for cars and for Niko.

 

The dating and friendships feature. It's nearly impossible for all of youre friends to 'like' you above 60% or so unless you hang out with them all the time, which is something I can't be bothered to do.

 

The dancing minigame in TBOGT.

 

Rocco Pelosi and Mori Kibbutz. f*ck those guys, they're the worst GTA characters ever.

V got the worst type of cops that could happen in a game like this. Not only they are murdering psychopaths (oh look, he's driving car with broken window, let's kill him!), but they're like terminators scanning for your heart rate and brain waves to perfectly find you behind 3 meters high brick wall. And don't make me start on their driving skill, but they're outrageous as a whole.

 

SA cops weren't standing out in any particular way for me. Rather mediocre and typical for a previous gen game.

I don't like the fact that you never get more than 3 or 4 different vehicles spawning at the same time.

I actually felt that this was even worse in GTA 5 though. Go in the city and all there is are Cavalcades, Baller's and Beejays. Go to the countryside/desert and all there are is Mesas, Grangers and Landstalkers. The amount of SUV's in GTA 5 was beyond ridiculous, I thought the system in GTA 4 worked perfectly fine. :)

well if you know their tactics, you'll never fail ;)

I agree about their shooting and driving speed. damn all that in a lighting-speed thing!

The friendship/dating system: I really like the idea but if they had removed the friends calling you all the time it would've been great. I loved to hear the conversations. Just the first phone call that let's you know that you are now friends would've been enough.

Some driving mechanics: Although I generally love it some of the bumps spinning you off were too ridiculous, not to even mention the road just flipping in places like near Maissonete 9 or Homebrew Cafe. Had some fun with those bits too though so that makes up for it.

Lighting: Sunny days often looked quite brown like in TLAD. I know it fits the setting but more real sunlight would've been nice.

Falling damage: It was very weird sometimes. Like how you fall from a great height hit a box just before the ground and it barely damages you and then when you touch the ground you die. Or when falling from the stairs you lose a little bit of health with every tumble but when you reach the bottom you die from half health.

Not much really. Probably just the flying rats (still haven't 100% IV because of em), putting the phone away when getting shot, and police cars spawning ahead of you when you're trying to escape.

They weren't so bad, I took them out quite easily, I don't like doing them, but they weren't so annoying as expected.

What made them fun was doing them in the early beginning of the game, Broker's and Bohan's Flying Rats are still boring, but going over to Algonquin and Alderney and trying to take them down on a permanent 6-start wanted level (evadable once you get back to Broker/Bohan, though) made that intense but fun. Especially when you're trying not to get wasted or busted.

 

I hated the lack of costumasion for cars, not the characters though, he didn't need any tattoos and having a beard on him would look rediculous. I liked wearing his original clothes anyway.

 

I also hated Yusuf.

 

Also, ten-a-penny, will you please shut up and stop spamming this topic w/ "haha :lol: i agree yes this game sucks" and/or something like that, we get your point, you hate this game.

You've just given me incentive to finally 100% IV. I never thought of tackling the pigeons that way even though I love hitting as many stunt jumps in Alderny/Algonquin at the start of the game.

 

 

Another thing that irritated me slightly (which is 10X worse in V for some reason) is how slowly you got up after being knocked down. Despite it being nearly the same speed as in the 3D era GTA's (for the most part), the fact that the AI shoots at you whenever possible would result in death if you were fell down.

Yep, that's, a tip I can give if you want to take out the pigeons that way is to stay in a car as much as possible and drive-by them. If there are some which need to be taken out using Rocket launchers or snipers, you're gonna have to get out. The ones on the Happiness Island are pretty problematic to do while on a wanted level.

Most of the things you hate about IV are there because V has them.

 

GTA V has animals and GTA IV doesn't? GTA IV worst GTA ever. - that's one screwed up way to hate a game IMO.

-Lack of vehicles

-Lack of weapons

-Lack of customization

-Money is useless

-No countryside

 

Sure, GTA V improved on those things, but it completely ruined a whole lot more of things I loved about IV. I can list those 5 bad things about IV, but I could list about 30 - 50+ bad things in V.

- More weapons, particularly melee.

- Refined hand-to-hand combat.

- Refined weapon controls.

- Refined car physics

- Nothin' to do with your cash.

- VISUALS (They were pretty good upon release, so I guess you can't criticize that aspect)

- Disorganized multiplayer.

- No vehicle ownership/customization.

- Driving and flying could feel a bit clunky. Motorcycles were particularly sh*t before TLaD.

- Some more ways to stay active in combat after the campaign. (Like the gang wars in TLaD and drug stick-ups in TBoGT)

- Mission objectives were fun but could sometimes be repetitive. 

- No stealth whatsoever. (That unfortunately remains true in V)

- The cops should have been intelligent and powerful somewhere between what they were in IV and what they are in V.

- Character movement could feel clunky.

 

I have a myriad of flaws I could list for other games, I consider this limited list to still be very good for an old game that still remains in my top 5 today.

They took away a few things that gave GTA it's thing. 

Even down to small things like not seeing wasted when you die. 

 

That aside for it's time the game was and still is  bloody brilliant.

I dislike the map *I love New York ok?*, maybe because it's too gray and there's no countryside, I hate Roman asking for BOWLING!!, I feel the game too empty of things to do in the freeroam, like no Planes, no car tunning, the phone camera is stupid and there's no purpose, I HATE the game performance on PC which is CRAP *My PC is good*, hmmm, the damn horn sound of the vehicles is annoying as f*ck, so sad Rockstar kept it on GTA V... 
Nothing more... I think.

I know it's personal opinion why you hate/dislike something, but you dislike the city because it's too gray, and you also said 'I love New York', but LC is greatly based on NY. Looks like real NY, and you said I don't like LC, but like NY. LC=NY, LC looks and feels like real NY, your comment doesn't make sense. But everyone has it's own opinion. Liberty City is the best city in the series anyway.

  • NPC's AI while driving. The amount of times I've been shunted from behind while waiting at traffic lights and side swiped driving cross the Algonquin Bridge...
  • Hand to hand combat felt a little clunky to me.
  • Friends constantly wanting to meet up, especially if you agree and the meeting point spawns on the other side of the city. 
  • It didn't bother me at the time but thinking about it now customising cars would've been nice. 
  • I'd say my skill is pretty average when it comes to gaming, but even I felt IV was a bit on the easy side. 

 

Despite that IV's still my favourite game of the series, I'm a sucker for a good story and IV was way beyond what I expected in that regard.

I wonder why people say they hate Roman calling for bowling so much. He barely calls me for bowling, they're just trying to blend in with the joke.

I actually find this more annoying than the "constant" phone calls. Even if I intend to hang out with them it's annoying being in Alderney and having to pick them up from say Broker. In saying that you get to learn their meet up points in general.

 

For example when Niko and Roman move into the Bohan safehouse hanging out with Roman usually means picking him up from there, but not always.

YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO CRITICIZE GTA IV, YOU WILL CREATE RIFT IN SPACE-TIME CONTINIUM AND DOOM US ALL!

 

OP:

  • The bad pixelation on consoles.
  • The animations that take forever.
  • Friends calling you every 30 mins.
  • The cover system being useless as it's more likely to get you killed than actually help you.
  • Falling from anything remotely high = insta-death.
  • Going through windshields when crashing (though here it's more annoying than f*cking retarded like V)
  • Free Roam in MP can't help you level up at all. I used to be f*ckin' godly in MP but never got past lvl 7 because I spent all my time in Free Roam.
  • Lack of substantial amount of exciting missions in core IV (solved by TBoGT) 
  • Small map.
  • No countryside.
  • No vehicle customization
  • Car wash = yoga
  • The filter in core IV (solved by TBoGT)
  • No planes
  • No military
  • Niko Bellic
  • How the cheats were handled
  • The lack of good cheats (partially solved by TBoGT, still not as good as SA)
  • Lack of customization, poor pool of clothing options.
