The lack of checkpoints. Lemme demonstrate.
- You're doing a mission and accidentally do something wrong? Restart all over again. (Like exploring in places where you shouldn't be or doing stuff you shouldn't do just for the lulz)
- You're doing a mission and, at the end of it all, that trick enemy gets you right in the face? Restart all over again. (In "Hostile Negotiation", next to the part with the RPG-wielding guys in the rooftop, there is a gas canister which will be likely to explode due to the concentrated fire. Most times when you are close to it.)
- Difficult mission and still getting the hang out of it? Restart all over again. (Say "Three Leaf Clover", per example.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Helicopter controls also just plain suck. I mean, they suck on GTA V too, but at least there you could actually handle them.
Accidentally doing that fricking Sixaxis mission when meaning to type your cheats. Which transports you to the airport. Best part? The part where you are controlling a helicopter with Sixaxis. That is a big no-no for me.

EDIT: Fixing the separation stuff as posting in mobile is quite bad.

Police spawning, an issue in all Gta's imo. Specifically to IV the spawning of the police boats, the minute you hit the water with a three star wanted level you're swarmed by them.

Don't play GTA V then. It is the same, only in water, ground, air... I've seen some videos where they even entered bugs. THE FRICKING BUGS. Add that with a overpowered police AI. Have fun.

QUBED.

 

I never bothered with it until the the night before last because I played it once or twice back in '08 and didn't have patience. Decided to give it ago on the Xbox One and I was determined to beat it. It's actually a very fun game. It took me about 1-2hrs but I got the high score the other night. "A"

EDIT: Just seen a video with someone using the special moves. I saw them but didn't know how to use them. Damn. They would have been so handy!

You can prevent it when climbing, just keep holding move forward key.

Yeah like when you meet a friend the camera just points towards them. It's a little annoying. I like to keep control of the camera at all times with the right thumbstick as I like having the control of looking around.

Really? I thought V's radio was way worse actually. The good soundtrack during the missions made up for it though.

V had some really good stations but some annoying ones as well. The only station I don't like in IV is San Juan sounds and I don't like that kind of music anyway. The rest of it just sounds like New York.

I kinda dislike how you can only switch your car lights to high beams and not turn them completely off. This is actually something GTA V fixed for once.

Some of the long journeys in Francis McReary's missions. Moving from one car to another to pick up a sniper rifle before shooting a guy.

The fact Niko slants while running it's pretty f*cking odd. The camera on cars it's also too low, sometimes i can't see what's in front.

Really? I thought V's radio was way worse actually. The good soundtrack during the missions made up for it though.

 

the problem with gta v's music is that it was set in an era(2013) when music was dying what I dislike about it is  the music on the stations are too repetitive. for example every time  I tune into west coast classics "balad of a menace ft mc ren is playing and I hate that song. also that station plays mostly songs from the nwa family tree i.e ice cube, snoop and dr dre, the dogg pound, bone thugs n harmony and the songs that aren't from those artist are bland except for e-40's captain save a hoe.

 soul wax fm is useless unless you are in a race. I don't like radio los santos because of the modern era setting and theres only about 3 songs on that station I like. non stop pop has that repetitive problem also because they play mostly girly pop like Brittany spears and I have to wait through the  whole vanilla unicorn catalog before I get to the good stuff like, pet shop boys  gorillaz , bobby brown, simply red, daft punk etc. los santos rock radio is alright los santos rock is the modern day version of k-dust because they both have a laid back soft rock vibe.  the biggest failing of gta v radio is that there is no r&b station and every gta until v had that. admittedly gta  IV did a good job with its r&b station and even more rand b plays in the stip club unlike gta v that plays mostly girly pop Brittany music in vanilla unicorn. what rockstar should've did was gotten rid of the Mexican station or world wide fm and move those world wide songs to other stations like the lowdown and mirror park

Music is not dying. You can only blame R* for the poor music selection, not the era itself. There's plenty of good music coming out all the time, it's just not mainstream. And this proves it.

After playing V for a while then going back to IV, the character movements feel really weird and sorta clunky. Also I feel like the camera while driving is really hard to get used to again.

 

But those are just things that are bound to happen when a game ages. It still holds up really well to this day.
