GTA IV -VS- GTA SA

Sorry if theres already this topic, i've not seen it around.

 

Well all it is, is which GTA do you prefer? San Andreas Or IV?

 

For me its hard. GTA IV has aload of detail, civilians are different, and its well put together. But GTA SA is bigger, planes, more exploring and to be honest i could play it today and it would be fun.

 

I'd say 50/50, but GTA IV is getting a tad boring for me, and its been out 2 months?

I like GTA IV better since I didn't like the features in SA such as hair trims, weight loss/gain, tattoos, and all that other nonsense.

 

GTA IV FTW.

GTA IV is the best GTA I have ever played.

 

But..since I got RROD and cant play it, I'm enjoying SA-MP for now.

yeah it's a tough call, difficult to compare them because of the different

circumstances under which they were released,

SA definitely provided more replay value and fun

but IV provided a more qualitative approach

 

too dificult to say but i'd say SA was more innovative just for the sheer

size and volume of it

Agreed. I would say IV slightly outweighs SA for me due to the story and the connection felt through the characters. But in terms of replay then I would say SA. But that's only because I haven't been playing IV for years (yet).

GTA IV is clearly better with the multiplayer aspect, but without it, it is not as much fun as SA. I didn't like SA initially at all. I liked Vice City better and still do as far as the characters and the story went. I liked the SA story more than Niko's as well. I don't like Niko or CJ. I think the game has become kind of preachy too. In any case while any GTA is excellent, GTA IV could have been way better than it is. So while it's great i's not the knock out of the ballpark I'd hoped for.

IV because of the online(along with graphics etc.)

 

SA was fun to explore with such a large map.. and going rockcrawling in the Hummer..

true, the only reason that this is even a contest is because of IV's multiplayer

I still think IV would easily win even if it didn't have multiplayer.

I agree. And as somebody said in another thread (maybe it was you, Tony?), the fact that there is even a comparison between SA and this next gen game doesn't speak well for IV.

It is true that there are many people who didn't like SA solely because

CJ is black,

And I'm sure they're in the small minority as there were plenty of good reasons not to like him.

No, I hated him because he was annoying fa**ot with no brain.

 

And he was such a tool. It's like

 

- Hey CJ, go to this&that and I'll tell you something about your imprisoned brother!

- NO WAI NIGGA. AI DO IT OK?

*time passes*

- Thanks CJ, I'll give you $100 for giving me the newest military plane, now here's a thing about your brother: yep, he's really in prison

- THANKS DUD I'LL DO ANOTHER 992312131251 MISSIONS FOR YOU NIGGA ASS

That was me.

 

SA is clearly the more innovative of the two games and if you compare them purely on a gameplay level and take technical advancement out of it, SA is clearly the better game.

 

Sure, muliplayer (true, official, gameworld multiplayer) is good, but it would have been a joke if R* hadn't included considering how many have been clamouring for it for so long....

the storyline was better

 

What the hell? Did you even play IV? San Andreas had the weakest story of them all.

 

 

there more ways to use money u earned

 

Maybe, but you still had like 200 million after having 100% and you had nothing to spend it on.

 

 

and u could do more stuff like haircuts and tattoos

 

No comments.

 

 

and i felt more close to CJ and other characters in SA than i did in IV

Essentially, quoting a particular piece of someone's post

and answering with 'no comment' while clearly inferring

your disagreement is in fact a comment in itself.

You may just as well have said "Gay"
