List what GTA V does better than its predecessor. Do not discuss what IV does better, because that's not what this topic is about and there is already a thread about it here.

It would have been easier to have a shorter list of reasons why IV is better. Obviously V is better.

There is a thread about it in the GTA IV forum: Reasons GTA IV is better than GTA V.

 

Let's keep this one open and see how it goes, shall we?

You can enter restaurants/fast food places.

You can turn your car engine on/off.

The car damage is more realistic.

The physics are better.

 

Am I doing this right?

I got one thing GTA V has that pretty much makes everything GTA IV did better totally pointless and insignificant. GTA V HAS UPDATED GAMEPLAY!

After playing GTA V and going back to GTA IV, it felt like a total downgrade. Niko controlled awkwardly and animated even worse, driving feels like the roads are made of ice and shooting had the worst lock on i have ever experienced in a 3rd person shooter. You could argue GTA IV had a better story or say its better just because of some insignificant details like turning on the engine, its still a game that aged poorly and a game i would not bother coming back to since GTA V (gameplay wise) is a step up in almost every direction. The only reason I would come back is to play the story (which ill admit is better than V) or explore LC.

 

And let's face it guys, the only reason you are defending GTA IV is to spite GTA V much like how people defended SA just to spite IV. And I feel confident people will start saying "GTA V was way better" when GTA VI comes out. Now would we stop comparing the GTA games already? Because there is not one single unbiased opinion in the entirety of the GTA Forums.

 GTA V is superior than IV in many ways in gameplay, only story is what lacks....

 

 

 

Better character customization

 

Better weapon customization

 

better things to spend your money on

 

better vehicles

 

better details on map

 

Better clothing options for each protagonists

 

better boats, and other sea vehicles

 

better car customization (Is this even a comparision???)

 

Better side missions

 

better shooting sound, and effects

 

better car effects

 

realistic effects in the environment, such as when you break the glass of a car, and when you step on it: it actually makes sounds that you are stepping over broken glass.

 

MUCH better motorcycle driving psychics

 

More and better melee weapons.

 

 

 

 

 

 

See? Now to all you GTA IV fanboys who is gunna come this thread and try sarcastic and annoying jokes on how better IV is better than V, and to all TLAD fanboys who is gunna say that GTA V automatically sucks because Trevor killed Johnny: please, f*ck off.

GTA V does almost everything better except for the story, which some people can't seem to get over. Also, it's lacking some good crime related side activities but it gets pass because it does everything else very well IMO.

The graphics, animations, framerate, and shooting mechanics are all smoother. Although it sucks how people downplay that because "that's expected after years of development". Like? So? Those things are crucial, those are things that are not easily overlooked when going back to play an old game like IV. Yeah the story or side activities might be better, but it's not as fun to play with the outdated graphics and clunky controls/physics.

gta iv was completely forgettable with horrible characters and a setting that was incredible for about the first ten hours... and then exhaustively repetitive

Graphics is the only thing that is truly better. Everything else is opinion and personal preference.
