The fanboyism in this thread is contagious.

Figure that'll change with the PC version this fall. But until then, I agree. Very atmospheric. Especially with lightning.

I think this hasn't been mentioned yet...

 

94. Those badass pistol executions. Not just shooting a character like a random pedestrian you can shoot every time you want, that's basically what Rockstar did with GTA V. It's quite boring, I prefer those little cutscenes in GTA IV because you really feel you put an end to the characters.

 

95. A lot of emails to answer on the Internet Café. Niko's mother, Roman, Brucie, Johnny's brother, Luis' brothers...

Holy sh*t, how can i forget this from my previous post?

The whole diamond, heroin and cocaine crossover stories. Especially the diamonds. A guy on YouTube put together all missions from IV, TLAD and TBoGT that involved the diamonds, and it's over an hour and half long.

 

 

I also LOVE how Rockstar showed the chef hold the diamond to the screen in the first cutscene of IV and then Kapowitz holds it the same way in the last cutscene of TBoGT. The whole diamond story was just epic.

1. Better written characters

2  Better story

3. Better driving physics

4. Better damage model (vehicles)

5. Better melee fighting system

6. No recovering health

7. No overpowered special abilitys

8. Only one playable character

9. Faster loading

10. Better ending(s)

11. Better crowded city

12. More and better moral decisions to make

13. No social media & smartphone bullsh*t

 

 

 

 

Got more ?

 

All of those reasons are purely subjective with the exception of nine. Whenever I load GTA V, I do something else for a few minutes. Are you that bored that you can't occupy yourself?

Better melee fighting system, better vehicle damage, better crowded city and more morale decisions aren't subjective, either. So 5 of his 13 are completely true.

Well 6, 7 and 8 aren't subjective.. GTA IV doesn't have health regeneration, only 1 protagonist and no special abilities. That's not an opinion.

Well, it's still subjective that those things make IV better than V, i must say.

Okay it's pretty clear the thread is really incredibly fanboyish. Is this really needed? We've had millions of topics about this already and this is nothing but a nesting place for fanboys.

Don't click on the thread if it annoys you, dude.

True. They refuse to entertain the idea that anyone could dislike GTA IV.

 

I don't even dislike IV. I thought it was a fine game, but the worst GTA game.

I've already written about it extensively. Look through this forum. Basically, these fanboys don't accept others' opinions.

What are you doing here then, mate? If you dislike people who like a game more than another, why are you posting here? Or I guess you're so tough to provoke troubles disrespecting players, calling them "fanboys" in a "nest". Guys like you make me sick...

You weren't saying that a week ago.

 

 If it bothers you to entertain the idea that people could possibly like GTA IV over GTA V or any other GTA in its home forum I don't even know why you've bothered clicking on this thread quite frankly.

107. No stupid mario kart power ups in GTA Race
108 No catchup in race
109 No slipstream in race

Chill out Bucky.
We apreciated V too, but just prefer IV over it. Here is the reasons why we think like this, and im failing to see it as being fanboyism.
It is called preferences friend, and we all respect you prefering V, or any other game over IV.. Why cant you do the same? Just respect everyone's thoughts shared here too, and lets make this forums better.

Good to know you think IV is the worse in the series, and i have you know that i disagree with this. You have you reasons for it, and this thread is some reasons i personally thinks it is better than V.
Thank you.

Who are you to tell me to "chill?"

No s&^t, Sherlock. I haven't said anything to make you think otherwise.

I've yet to see such respect.

All I've seen is subjective beliefs posted as though they were the gospel. It comes off as a bunch of fanboys moaning rather than intelligent people trying to have a discussion on why they prefer one game over the other.

 

i have you know that i disagree with this

 

Again, no s$&t. Why would you be responding to me in such a manner if you didn't? I don't care if you agree or disagree.

I really don't understand the hate on multiple protagonists. I mean asside from a few different things to have access to it doesn't change the gameplay. And the only reason it f*cked up the story is because it condensed three seperate stories into a lesser number of missions, some of which were just "steal this car," "buy these masks" "do up the getaway car that's not even a getaway car".

I think in future if we have the same number of missions and same quality of story as IV, but with three characters, Rockstar can really deliver a stellar and twisted plot.

NV112: I remember before GTA V's release being somewhat sceptical about the switching mechanism. For me it's an interesting concept, but not as good as it could be. I think when we hang out with all three protagonists we should be able to switch to whoever we want, but that's not the case.

Sorry if I've come across as a 'fanboy' Bucky...

I was under the impression that this was just a light hearted thread expressing the good points of GTA IV as opposed to V, not a deliberate attempt at a war between IV and V fans.

Sorry but that feature is sh*t. It becomes too easy to win then, especially if the race is started with Supercars. Would have been better if people respawned with their cars, would have been more fun.
