gta IV is classic so i can't say this is the only place this is popular, but gtaForums is where the most die hard fans of the series are so it is no surprising people that most care about each installment write their opinions here

It's just a hate bandwagon. People want to be apart of the popular opinion because they don't want to be isolated. I used to be like that too until I stopped giving a sh*t about what people think. But I swear, ever since that "GTA IV is better than GTA V" video dropped, I've been seeing more people appreciating GTA IV.

Sadly it seems that we are the only one who loved this game, I always been a fan of GTA 4 since I have bought my ps3 and GTA IV when I was 10 years old. Loved the more "realistic" approach but I never truly appreciated this game until I replayed it several times when I finally managed to understand he story better.

The majority of GTA casual players still hates this game because it's simply not GTA online but like others said, I'm glad that I started to see more people liking GTA 4 after that video.

Don't worry. Kids who's first GTA was IV will start getting nostalgic soon. IV is also one of the highest rated games on Metacritic and has sold over 30 million copies. It has all the tools to be widely loved in the future. Some movies like It's a Wonderful Life and Blade Runner were disliked at release, but now are classics. GTA IV should be like that.

There are a lot of places on the web where people think IV is a very good game, (even though most of them probably thinks so because of the typical hate towards the last game like in every franchise). I personally dont care, if theres is something I noticed now that Im back playing IV, is that it aged pretty well, even graphically (for me at least), and that it will probably be the last game where R* will pour their heart in. Its pretty obvious that R* made this game with passion, something that you definitely dont see in V for example (maybe on the map details, and in some of the lastest vehicles but thats it), so enjoy it boys because I really dont think we will be seeing this in the future, not in a near future at least (I sincerely hope Im wrong though).

No need to be that pessimistic ;-

If I am having more fun in 2008 game more than a game from 2013(or 2015 pc version)there must be something wrong...Also I am started to think gta 6 would feel fake like gta 5, if that happens again this series would be ruined.

Certainly can't talk about it at GameQuacks, those f*cking ducks will report you for just breathing an opinion.

That's good if IV only appreciated here, because I can bash IV anywhere, well.... But here ;)

 

On serious note

The only problem IV had is that it takes itself too serious

The game has jokes everywhere you look. Never got the complaint about being too serious.

Same. I actually think GTA III takes itself way more seriously. Atleast GTA IV had some light hearted moments throughout the story to balance out its serious ones.

I don't remember ever having that feeling playing GTA III which felt like dress rehearsal of Max Payne and Manhunt.

Not that it's a bad thing though. I'd rather a game that takes itself seriously whilst leaving enough room for comic relief than the other way around like some games that insert awkward "serious" moments in amongst a whacky backdrop.

I've always been a fan of GTA IV. But I am a fan of them all and none of them disappoint me. I treat each entry separate and like them for different things. I think that maybe where IV suffers with some people is that it feels quite different to the 3D era in many ways and I think that caught a lot of people off guard, specifically those that don't like change. I think, as others have said, a lot of people just wanted San Andreas 2.0 and that is not what IV is.

 

That's not to say that's the only people may dislike it but from my experience when talking to people about the GTA games it is often the case that I am left feeling that they wanted another San Andreas and where disappointed not to get that.

If GTA IV is popular, then R* should ditch GFWL entirely and even eliminate bugs and make it run smoothly, then its considered popular. Least I still got the PS3 version of it. And the damage could've been a bit more realistic like bumpers detaching off instead of just constantly dangling about. But, still doesn't stop me from having fun with this classic, of course.

if could have more appreciation if rockstar  did a great  PC port, they were on effect of drugs while porting the game to PC, even modern computers cant get stable 60 FPS at low settings

 

GTA IV pc port is awful as batman arkham knight on PC, i always crash like a bandicoot on PCs from the year 2007-2012

Well that's been the case for years. GTA IV is over praised here, but everywhere else it's under appreciated for all the wrong reasons. I don't get why people complain about it being so serious. This game has f*cking crude humor and jokes everywhere. The last 4 mission when sh*t starting hitting the fan, that's when GTA IV got serious.

nope its not overpraised here, its just seen as the great game that it is, even if the pc port is flawed its still got a lot more content than V.

I really don't see how it is at least compared to other GTA games. What do you expect on a FAN forum? I know some people can't stand the sight of GTA IV getting some love (Not saying you in particular), but a term such as "over praise" makes no sense to me in the context of being on a fan forum.

 

It's like going to a sports forum (be it football. baseball or whatever) and saying the people over praise the teams they barrack for.

GTA IV(+EFLC) is a Quentin Tarantino movie and GTA V is a Michael Bay movie
