I see your point Mr Vercetti and I still have faith in the younger generation even if they do praise GTA V.:p

SOL, the same younger generation you keep your faith in praise V, is that a good thing for you? :p

 

Jokes aside, I know some people whine about kids these days not having the chance to play San Andreas or Vice City and all but I think it's a blessing in disguise if anything. Because they know not to expect billions of features in the next installment.

 

I don't see why people go mad when someone calls IV or V the greatest game ever made simply because their recent ones. Of course they may not have played the 3D Era games but it's just a new generation. It was the same back in 2004, when everyone was praising SA and not a lot of people had even played GTA 1 or 2 back then.

 

Trust me, if a person's first GTA is IV, it's a lot better than having SA as first, and therefore claiming it to be the "base" of the series.

 

IV is a generational leap, just like how III was 6 years before.

Exactly, I love the 3D Era games but at one point you just need to let go off them. And that's a problem some people seem to be having.

Everyone was praising SA in 2004? That's not how I remember it (well, not in 2004, I wasn't using the internet fully back then, but before GTA IV anyway), everyone was bashing it for being a departure from VC's direction. I started seeing serious praise for it only after IV came out, when people hated its lack of content. And now that the dust has settled, merely liking SA has become taboo again.

What was VC's direction? SA was just modern time with a black dude who could do everything he wanted, rise from bottom to top. Radios were still good (Ozzy returns with an even better song), shooting mechanics improved, driving better but crash physics worse (although not a big deal)

 

VC to SA, not much of a change except for a ton more content, that said, I loved em both

 

IV to V, massive change, dumbing down, not much good content

I think he's referring to the fact that VC was far more simpler to play than SA.

 

I've seen some threads pre-2008 and it does seems as though more people preferred VC to SA back then than they do now. I know a member who has been on this forum before 2008 and he says the same was happening as well.

 

This forum can never make up it's mind lol.

I was 22 when GTA IV released. I appreciated what R* tried to do back then unlike the whining brats, but now I'm edging my 30s it makes me feel a similar way to how I feel about epics such as The Godfather and Once Upon A Time In America.
 
On GTA IV's 10th anniversary I plan on doing something very special.


What are you planning to do?

Agree with you op. I was 24 when IV came out and it has always been my favorite out of them all. V's storyline replayability has nothing on IV. IV is a serious gritty game, no goofy sh*t with this one. Probably why it & Max Payne 3 appeal to me.

Story and narrative are a different matter where your mental maturity, and capabilities to analyze everything that the story has to offer, as an experience, probably matters the most.
However, when it comes to gaming, gameplay precisely, you don't need as much maturity and experience, as in real life, something that relies on imagination, and the young you're with age, the more you are likely to push the game beyond the routine stuff and approach, test it, try and experiment.
When I played IV for the very first time, I was definitely not happy at the changes IV took on the "fun" areas, and with the gameplay, irrespective of the story.
By the time V released, the feeling of being not satisfied with the product helped me to start playing IV again. It's a situation like this, that also come into play, to make you think and change your perspective about something you ignored, and are now ready to analyze it differently, assuming a lot of things are comparatively better than, for ex: V, and also one would likely have a much better time in this particular game called "GTA IV" now.
With that being said, IV would be easily commendable on the strength of story, characters, the setting and in fact, it is considered amazing too.
IV feels unique in the series, and like it for the experience it offers.

In V they just run around like idiots hunched over, or hold a newspaper over their head.

Just like Vercetti42 here, I'm 14 and absolutely love GTA IV. The well-written story, control fluidity, and overall graphics really appeal to me. I was 9 when I first played it and I guess I was too young to understand the story, and only completed like half of the missions. Now that I finished my second playtrough I realized what a masterpiece of a game it is.

I was around 10 years old when this game came out but I didn't own it until 2 years later. Me and my sister played the story mode together in 2011 but I decided to play it myself in 2012. First playthrough I was like "great story!" Every other playhrough after that was even better. What makes GTA IV so great was the detail not only in the world but it's story.
 
An example is when I played the IV trilogy, I was amazed at how the Heroin Johnny and the Lost steal from the AoD is the same Niko and Phil acquire later in the timeline.

holy sh*t
 
when The Lost steal the heroin, that mission is called action/reaction
 
they weren't f*cking around. that heroin caused a lot of things to happen in TLAD and IV's storyline. 
 
 
 
damn... wow.
