Of course, I haven't played V for a while because I'm re-100%ing this game again.

No, Los Santos is much better than liberty city.


Of course. That is if you're legally blind and have no taste.;)

Mmmm no. No, it's you who is blind SOL. You're blind due to your fanboyism. I hope DM can straighten you out and make you realize that V is superior. DM and I are saving you, from yourself.

Go back to GTA IV? Watching the trailers for V I thought I would never pit it back in my console. However, several hours into the game I couldn't wait to finish V so I could replay IV again. Beat it within a month and haven't stopped playing IV since the end of October (with a break after XMas - brand new PS4 and ACIV took up a great deal of personal time). Why? It feels far more like a complete product, together with TLaD and BoGT, there's more atmosphere and personality to the city, much better protagonist and supporting characters. longer and better scripted story, better and far more enjoyable driving and damage physics, better utilised Euphoria engine etc etc.

 

The only thing V did better was improve on the combat mechanics and graphics. IV was far more immersive than V and there was more detail in the world, it feels alive. I tend to role play in most open world games, I couldn't do that with V.

Who is the fanboy? Liberty talks about how much he likes GTA IV in the GTA IV section. You go into the GTA IV section to attack the game and say how much better GTA V is, not because of the good things about V, but the "bad" things about IV.

 

Get a life, man.

I was joking. I don't know why people are so damn serious on here. Hell, even SOL knows that I'm joking. If I wasn't then he would've sent me a warning or something.

To be completely honest, I haven't gone back to play IV.

I have no need to because I'd rather just leave it as it is. It was a great game in the series and had an amazing storyline but going back to play it again would leave a sour taste in my mouth. Not only because the graphics aren't that amazing (not saying they are bad) but mainly because why would I want to play it again. I played it once and I deemed it a classic. You can't play something that is classic as you did the first time you experienced it; doesn't work that way, well for me at least.

I would have missed so much of the game if I just played it once. I discover little intricacies and plot details that I missed in my first play through everytime I replay the game, which makes me appreciate the brilliance of this game alot more.

 

Now 6 years later, I'm still discovering areas and things in LC that I've never noticed before. This is a game that you need to playthrough thoroughly to truly appreciate.

 

The graphics are great even by todays standards, the only thing that annoys me slightly is the choppy framerate but its easy to overlook that

Oh it's on. Me, you, 50 pages of greater-than-symbols. YOU WILL LOOK AT THEM UNTIL YOU BELIEVE. YOU WILL BELIEVE. I might throw in something about GOTYs making the game objectively better. Maybe I'll use M$ instead of MS cause I'm edgy like that. f*ck I'm such a rebel.

I personally kinda like to get back to IV every now and then, especially since I haven't yet played V much and don't own it yet. Being quite a fanboy of San Andreas, probably one of the most "non-realistic" game of GTA-series, it's nice to go back to dark Liberty City. Also, there's a lot of unfinished business left... Darn achievement hunt!

And, just for comparing, I usually tend to aim for a bit more realism in San Andreas while modding it, and I like to play IV to get some reference about what I'm aiming for, how I could improve existing mods, and what would be nice to try to implement in an older game.

Playing The Lost and Damned brings me deeper into the cruel world of Liberty City, where gangs either kill, or get killed. A bit exaggarated presentation of real world gangs, but fits well in a game. When it comes to The Ballad of Gay Tony, it brings me a bit closer to third era GTA's with it's more rampage-styled attitude. "Take this golden helicopter armed with missiles and take down those guys!" Loved that aspect of the game, nice contrast to an era that is otherwise so gritty and realistic.

I'm sorry. YOU'RE NEVER THERE. I couldn't help myself.

 

OP: I can't anymore. It feels like a major step down. The feeling will pass in a few months, but right now, it's just unplayable for me. Basically the same way I felt when Vice City came out, when San Andreas came out, etc.

I got you a new copy of GTA IV for you for our honeymoon and now you're telling me it's going to be unplayable?

Thanks for crapping on my heart, thanks a lot.

I need to be held by some big strong arms right now.:(

I did. If you'd search for your new copy, you will see that it disappeared.

 

Plz don't tell the LCPD.
