I don't think the driving in GTA is 'good', it falls along way short of the driving experience you get in 'real' driving games, what it is though is easy.

Supercars can drive over grass and rocks, supercars are better off-road than off roaders, you can adjust the pitch of your car in the air, the classes are a mess, you cannot drift or manually change gear, you can roll your car from its roof to its wheels, rain is not available in any races that use a stunt prop, curb boosting ruins stunt track races, I could go on...

However the driving in GTA is good fun, and I believe this is because it is so simplistic and has got that 'Hollywood' feel to it. Despite all my above gripes I have more fun driving in GTA than other games as it is less realistic. I can drive around doing nothing just taking in the view, enjoying the car and having near misses with NPC traffic.

on the topic of bikes the way IV balanced bikes was AMAZING, if you want more grip and manuevarebility use a chopper if you want more speed use a sport bike, in V they all handle the same and the best bike is the fastest bike, no nuance, I remember learning to drift with the double t custom in TLAD and winning races in a totally 'rad fashion ,you had to apply different strategies for the type of bike you were using, in V there's no reason to use a sanchez offroad when a hacuchou handles the exact same only faster, or a hexer instead of a bati through sharp corners because it has f*cking antigravity technology, in V there's literally one factor when it comes to driving and that is speed ,the same for cars as well why use an ACTUAL offroad car OFFROAD when you can use supercar.hopefully they try to make it better next time.

In my opinion the only game that can compete with GTA: San Andreas in terms of arcade driving is Driver: Parallel Lines.

GTA IV has driving physics out of this world, and I struggle to find an equivalent racing game that can compete with it.
