When I replay the GTA IV Saga Tbogt really sticks out. IV and Tlad have such great compelling stories so when I get to TBOGT its just so lacking in comparison.
I like that its not as dark as those two, that part is fitting but overall the story & characters are just awful. It feels like a preview of GTA V, obnoxious characters, childish humor, no consequences for anything (the ending was so cheesy), over the top missions for the sake of it etc.
I dont mind that they went in a different direction with GTA V, its a new game but really wish that the GTA IV Trilogy would work well together.
