21. Better ragdoll physics, I still lmao when people fall after I ran into them or in the train station stairs.

22. Pickable random objects and you can throw them at people.

23. Pool.

24. Bowling.

25. A lot of friends and better friend activities and things to do with them, even if they don't like something you can still go there and do it.

26. Better subway.

27. Funny cops (fat cops mostly).

28. Beaten mode in pedestrians after the bars in the health circle are gone.

40. No unlikable protagonists. (Luis is a cantidate actually, but I will cut him some slack because 25 missions may noy have been enough to develop him as a character. Besides, the guy is f*cking hilarious. "Oye you making my eyes water man, you ugly". Also, I like his screams for some reason. "SHIIIIIIIIIIT! NO, NO, NOOOOOOOOOO! AHHHHHHHHH!" Plus, I really liked when he stood up for Brucie.)

 

(Niko and Johnny need no explanation for why they are awesome. Michael is O.K. but his character is sometimes inconsistant. Franklin is f*cking boring, and Trevor is the worst of them all.)

 

41. YELLOW CAR!!

 

42. You can kick people in the nuts as one of the fighting moves for when you dodge and counter-attack

 

43 Much more fun to ride a helicopter. In V it was not fun because you had that stupid turbulence. The turbulence should at least be removed if you max out the flying stats of your character.

 

44. Focus was on SP rather than online.

52. Better music, radio stations are done better. More talk radio, too.

53. Cars sound a lot better

54. More variety of law enforcement vehicles (NOOSE Cruiser, NOOSE Patriot, Annihilator, FIB Buffalo etc) that are utilized and sent after you

55. Cops try to chase you realistically, not just ram you. They also pit maneuver you realistically.

56. You have to find the best supercars and not just buy them. Owning them is more rewarding.

Longer, better written and more meaningful story. Characters to like and actually care about. Cars actually get deformed when crashing. Better selection of cars (more sedans and coupes, with tuner variants) and more diverse controls. Motorcycles are actually useful in IV, and more fun than V for that matter. V has way too much super cars and the cars all feel the same, they all drive as sports cars. A wooden AK and better gun selection. Combat Pistol in IV was a Desert Eagle, in V it's a USP or something. Better gun sounds. No military and government interactions, except for the UL Paper contact - but he wasn't exactly making you do Call of Duty-esque missions (i.e. GTA V's "Monkey Business") and he actually helps you in the end. More realistic ragdoll and pedestrian damage effects (they can limp away after beaten too hard and hold their wounds after being shot too much compared to V where they just die.). Better melee combat system. Better map (V is bigger, not better. Don't confuse the two). More minigames, such as pool and bowling, more friends to hangout and more meaningful conversations with them. More interiors and an actual eating option. No health regeneration. I prefer simple cops over terminator cops, so the cop system is better in IV. Better soundtrack and Lazlow was actually funny. Richard Bastion was pretty good too. More side-jobs. An online mode more focused on fun and less on milking their fans for money.

 

Honestly, the only thing V does better than IV without question is graphics... V came out 5 years after IV, so OBVIOUSLY it's going to.

Every. Single. Other thing. Is arguably (remember; arguably) better in IV than it is in V.

I can't over-emphasize the driving and the overall lack of a dumbed down mainstream feel. Yes I know that GTA is cultural phenomenon that is indeed mainstream but GTA IV feels gritty and more grounded. Those two aspects are important to me and what I absolutely love about GTA IV.

74. More Challenge in missions

75. Feels like the GTA that started it all

76. Roman Bellic

78. stranger missions have more use to the story (Certain characters become a random character mission if you let them live)

79. Weapons were better and balanced (let me explain, in GTA V, some weapons feel useless such as the combat pistol compared to the pistol. However in IV you only had 2 of each weapon type, each had their own advantages and disadvantages.)

The voice acting in IV is miles better than V's mediocre and uncreative and at times weak voice acting. Michael Hollick in IV was a phenomenal voice actor and personally I think he deserved more than $100000 for his voice acting.

81. More action and badass fights moves in cutscenes (Niko breaks Dardan's arm/defeats Brucie twice, Johnny punches a guard/kicks Ray's gun, Luis kicks the Chinese Mobster's gun and knock him out with a punch...)

82. Better developed and unforgettable villains like Dimitri, Vlad, Bulgarin, Billy.

83. Dancing.

84. Rain ambient is better.
