 WARNING - SPOILERS

 

I'm a die hard GTA fan, I have completed every single 3D GTA and I own every GTA ever released for the PS2. I love the 3D games, they are my favourite. But I recently got a PS3 with GTA IV The Complete Edition and GTA V, but V is sh*t and boring so I don't play it. I just completed the story of IV earlier today. This is the first game with real emotion, if you know what I mean. Vice City Stories had a little bit of emotion, but nothing like IV. Choosing who to kill and who not to kill, and then facing the consequences added a great depth of emotion to this game. I have only completed it once, with the revenge ending so please don't spoil the deal ending. Watching Kate die at Roman's wedding, and then having to hear the sad 'mission passed' theme just makes this game's emotional depth even better. Although there were some positive emotions, like killing Darko with 12 bullets even though the Combat Pistol can only hold 9 in a clip and killing Dimitri, and especially killing Pegorino. This was an amazing game to play, and I enjoyed every single bit of it. Let's be honest, V is sh*t.

This is exactly how I feel too. I just couldn't get into V, it's a lot different to how I expected it was going to be.
That amazing first trailer of GTA V was how I hoped it would be and I was left wondering what happened? The game wasn't anything like that beautiful first trailer.

Indeed, Grand Theft Auto IV represents such indescribable of eternal struggles and it changes our ways of moralism. It triggers thyself in mysterious ways, even though it is all an illusionary experience or simulation process if you will. Personally, it incredibly impacted my perceptions while playing it for the first time and thus changes my decision on "I shall perish you with my sword" or simply "Spare thyself."  It is quite disappointing that the developers did not extracted the important propositions from Grand Theft Auto IV to GTA V. But we simply cannot forget, how strong GTA IV was. Truly a masterpiece. It has merits, yes, here and there. Gameplay-wise in general and I kind of liked it.

GTA IV reinstated my faith in video games that they don't always have to be about Michael Bay action sequences with forgettable, card board characters you'd forget a couple of minutes after they died. Hell I felt bad for Michael when he died in Three Leaf Clover despite only knowing him for a couple of missions. In most other games I'd just be like "Meh. Tough luck".

 

The thing I like about GTA IV is it's a roller coaster. It reinforces moments of anger, despair and happiness. Not just sadness when one of our favourite characters dies. It's a balance that IMO is hard to get right in a video game, but GTA IV proved it right.

This is one of the reasons GTA IV is the best GTA game. It takes itself seriously (while still having good comedic moments) and delivers very hard hitting emotional moments. 

 

It just feels "real" compared to the other GTA games, the characters feel human and relatable, its a slow burn and not a Michael Bay esque movie like V or even SA. It doesn't glamorize the lifestyle (like Vice City, as great as it is Tommy basically just keeps winning) and shows there are consequences. 

 

The Special Someone is one of my favourite gaming moments, so well executed!

I just think it's too much for some people too handle which is why they say "It's too serious". It's got more balls than any other GTA game to show that being a criminal doesn't mean you'll always get to live a lavish life and ride off into the sunset.

 

It's a brutal reality check from start to finish. :^:

Yeah sadly people want to restrict GTA to being a cartoony lighthearted series with over the top missions. Rockstar back then was very different. Going with something like GTA IV after SA was certainly bold, no way would they pull something like that today where they would rather play it safe.

 

I guess we can be happy that they at least did it once and gave us a darker grittier GTA that showed that being a criminal isn't all that fun (the best crime stories do that, like Goodfellas, Godfather or in games Mafia 1 and 2 etc.).

They may have given us a darker, grittier GTA, but it was still fun as hell! It had that perfect balance, like you said before. It makes you think long and hard, during The Holland Play, I drove to both Playboy and Dwayne's house, until stopping in the middle of the road and deciding that it was, unfortunately, time for Dwayne to end his misery. During That Special Someone, I was thinking about what Darko had done to Niko in the past, but was interrupted by Roman encouraging Niko to let him live. I thought long and hard about Darko, until I thought well f*ck this guy for what he did to Niko and his friends back in the village, and I proceeded to load 12 Combat Pistol bullets into his body. It's that thought process that no other GTA has ever delivered to me .

Yes, the Grand Theft Auto IV is the most emotional game I've ever played, even more stronger than Max Payne's noir, I can feel it, a man who lost his soul back in war time and looking for revenge about a decade, stepped on Liberty City, done many things Niko didn't want just looking for the truth... spare the life or end Darko's pain it's really the hardest choice in the human kind(It's nothing to compare with this, not even Max Payne), I end darko's pain too, we are all lost, who become a killer, or a drug addict... How about make it an end? or let him suffer to get what he deserve? probably make it an end is the best choice, I dunno...

The game itself are fun and serious, yeah, "the perfect balance", and the best story I will never forget

it's like those grunge music back then, really emotional, but too many people think it's too 'heavy' for them...

I dunno why... time's changed... maybe...

I just done the coversation with Kate where Niko reveals Roman's mother got raped instead of being burned like he was told.

Whilst not exactly a tear jerker it definitely struck a chord like when Dwayne talks about his tough upbringing. The friends/girlfriends are a great channel for character background.

Such an under-appreciated feature.

The Dialogue is my favourite part when hanging out with friends it gives the characters more depth and it can be quite emotional & very well-written or if you're hanging out with Brucie, absolutely hilarious...I really don't want to touch your balls Brucie.  :lol:
