HOW'S ANNIE?

IV vs V in terms of atmosphere/vibe

Recommended Posts

IV. The only big thing that disappointed me in V was that even if you play as a drug addict, (Trevor) the world is just full of fake tits, annoying celebrities and people dumb as rocks. IV had the darkest storyline and atmosphere out of any GTA, and I loved it.

I find GTA IV's vibe far more admirable for a crime franchise. It really gives off the vibe of a city dominated by the criminal underworld, whereas sunny GTA V gives more of a holiday (and well, a Hollywood-like) vibe. Being heavily focused on the corrupt side of the FIB rather than the traditional criminal organizations isn't helping neither.

IV does a more extreme job of showcasing its atmosphere but IMO it sometimes goes too far which results in hurting other elements of the game. I personally prefer V's vibe. Suits my style better.

i’d say gta 4. but i’ll give you the other elements. atmosphere or otherwise shouldn’t hurt general gameplay

Sorry OG, but reading this page is priceless lol. It was the first time I changed my name and confused the f*ck out of you haha. Sorry bro.😛

 

Anyway since this is a fairly old thread and a few more years have passed I think GTA V's vibe/atmosphere is pretty good for its setting just as GTA IV's is for it. but I still prefer GTA IV's. It feels more like the vibe/atmosphere you'd get from a crime drama/thriller like Donnie Brasco, The Departed, Goodfellas etc which suits my style.

My affinity towards dark and noir alike settings is clearly putting IV in front of V, subjectively. GTA V is without any doubt a beautiful looking game and not only that, but it is perfectly reflected presentation of the real life setting in its own unique way, just like IV anyway.

Color filters - or however they are called professionally - applied in IV are something that fits just right with my visual preferences. Even that brownish filter. In artistic terms they greatly contribute to bringing certain moods and are perfect form of exeggeration. I cannot help but to state that V's lack of these visual expressions and effects tend to make the atmosphere way too 'sterile'. Beautiful, but kind of mute. Technically, GTA V is more advanced, there's nothing in particular to add to that, it's a fact, but comparison between these two games, their graphics and especially atmosheres, can subtly show why something with 'better' graphics doesn't ultimately mean more visually appealing or better looking.
