Certain radio stations being a continuous playlist instead of songs chosen at random. Whenever you get into a car when starting a new mission, the playlist restarts instead of continuing where it left off.

You make a plan with a girlfriend/friend and they give you 1 hour to pick them up, they in Dukes and you in South Alderney, impossible to be in time.

 

Henrique and Mando, they are annoying.

How were they good in 2008? SA has much smoother movement. Niko runs like he has something stuck in his pants.

I really wish Rockstar would get rid of this "tap x/a to sprint" bullsh*t, and wide turn radius'. They need to look towards Max Payne 3 as an example of a game they've made on RAGE with good character movement.

I don't care about the wide turn radius really, but the tap to sprint sh*t was a retarded idea (for some reason, not an issue on Keyboard&Mouse setup but you can't jog in SP without mods then lol)

Liberty City didn't feel crime-infested, gritty, and violent at all, especially due to lack of random robbery, random gang violence, random police chases (things SA and V had) not to mention I barely even know any gang exist in LC

 

I find Southern Los Santos (SA and V)to be more crime-infested, gritty, and violent more that the whole LC and Alderney

 

Awful character movement

 

Enemies in Vigilante, Gang/Drug Wars using grenade, which is awfully annoying when you takes a cover behind cars, then it instantly explodes

That really isn't true. Whilst there aren't random police car chases there are still random foot chases and unlike San Andreas and GTA V the police A.I has the smarts to arrest the criminals and place them in their patrol cars.

 

I agree there could've been some more random crime, but when I think of gang violence I always think of LA. Gangs opening fire in the middle of the street for no reason isn't something associated with the gangs in NYC is it? Not saying it doesn't happen, but I feel if GTA IV was in any other decade random gang violence would be more prominent compared to the end of the 00s. I'm no NYC crime expert, but that's the impression I get.

 

The ironic thing is GTA IV has one of the highest amount of gangs in the series, but they're more realistic in their portrayal and blend in. The only issues I have regarding gangs is in TLAD when AOD gang members never act hostile in free roam around Johnny which is really weird.

^^This. IV's gangs have a large amount of gangs on the streets it's just that like my boy SonOfLiberty mentioned :p it's that IV's gangs try to blend in with the pedestrians unlike in SA and V where the gangs in those gta's take place in LA so gangs are seen together in groups drinking and smoking patrolling their territories moslty in SA V's gangs moslty stay in one place in their hood while SA's gangbangers tend to walk in groups watching out for other rival gang members.

 

IV's gangs try blend in with the regular pedestrians as i mentioned but if you go in their known territories and you randomly shoot a gun there will be at least 2-3 random gang members that start shooting you with pistols, Micro SMG's, and sometimes Pump Shotguns Mostly the Jamaicans, AOD, or Russian gangs that carry shotguns. Liberty City is just as dangerous as LosSantos sometimes even far more dangerous.

When I first played GTA IV it was like playing Where's Wally? to spot the gang members. :p

 

I don't mind it though because they still get aggressive if you provoke them so it kinda gives off the feeling you might be messing with the wrong person. Many times I've tried starting fights only to realise I've started one with a gang member and then all hell breaks loose.

I really, really despise the friend/girlfriend system. I never liked it back when I got the game and up to this date, I still find it to be incredibly annoying to be doing something in free roam only to be interrupted and distracted the freaking cellphone ringing on the lower right and getting a thumbs down for not answering.

 

I also really dislike how you can be heading towards a certain mission and the game suddenly starts a mission automatically and you have to drive all the way to the place you were not intending to drive.

 

I also dislike the thing about missions starting only on a certain time and I'm glad GTA V made it so that the moment you step on a marker, the game advances to the correct time.

 

Motorcycles handle terribly in this game in my opinion, to the point I made sure to avoid using bikes during it and got really annoyed when I was forced to do so.

 

The cover system is horrible. I like the cool animations Niko does when you run into cover but they're simply too slow and can get you killed, but worse than that, is just how innacurate it is to get into cover. Sometimes I want to take cover behind something, but Niko ends up taking cover at the wrong spot of it or somewhere completely unrelated to where I wanted to go. GTA V did the cover system better, though it is still a bit innacurate sometimes.

I rarely have an issue with the cover system, 99 times out of 100 it works as I intend. I prefer it to V and RDR actually.

 

I don't understand the hate for the friend/girlfriend system tbh, it is entirely optional for one and the phone has a sleep option to block all calls for completely uninterrupted gameplay.

The only thing I dislike about the friends/girlfriends is the insanely short amount of time you're given to get to them and 99% of the time they're on the other side of the city. Last night actually I was heading to Dukes so I could ring up Packie to hang out and when I called and finished I had to go back to Star Junction to pick him up my reaction was as follows...

R* of course fixed this in EFLC giving you 2 in game hours instead of 1 making it far less of a hassle even if you had to go to another borough.

Yeah that was annoying, if the friend spawned in another borough I just cancelled it and tried again until they spawned nearby. Worst was Jacob spawning on Charge Island.

Ammunation selling RPG, Railgun, Parachutes and Stungun doesn't makes sense

 

But a underground black market doesn't selling any suppresed weapons and forcing us to buy loud weapon even in such terror threat is far more difficult to believe

  • Wasn't sure if it was a bug, but if I already had two cars saved at a safehouse and drove to them in another car, the two cars saved would despawn. So to counter this, I'd grab a cab, set a waypoint a block or two from the safehouse, and sprint the remaining few meters there.

     

  • If a car tapped you, your sunglasses and/or hat would fall off.

Missions in Alderney such as the Fixer's or "Smackdown" because I'm supposed to get into shootouts with the enemies to complete the mission. But most of the time I'm greeted with a wanted level, so I have to kill this cop here, finish off the enemies there, and escape a 3-star wanted level after.

Does Michelle count? I hate that bitch.

 

Also another cheaty kinda answer, I also don't like the port. It was pretty shaky when it came out, it seemed to get a little better, now it's just getting worse again. I wish I didn't have to put this game on life support.

For me, it was the handling of vehicles, the handling is jerky for me, never took corners well and handbrake turns never worked for me and it never felt right. It took quite a bit getting used to on the PS3 and now I am playing on XBox 1 I am getting used to it all over again.

 

Apart from that, I loved the game

No clear reason for killing enemy on mission

Tbh I never know why I have kill a target during mission, because most mission doesn't give you any explanation on why the target have to die, so we ended killing bunch of guy for no reason during 90% of IV mission

 

I really hate TBOGT sh*tty humor, it feels like the characters tries too hard to be funny

It's not the game's fault if you don't pay attention to the dialogue and if you don't know why you're doing it. Saying 90% of GTA IV's missions give no reason is bullsh*t.

Well because 90% of the mission involve killing guy, it made me a bit confused

That doesn't mean the reasons for killing them aren't explained. Just pay more attention to the dialogue and maybe you wont get so confused? It's not that hard.

Sometimes people f*ck other people over, okay? And the people that f*ck other people need to get f*cked with. Especially people that go into hiding, before they can get on the stand and put a lot of guys inside for a lot of time :p

Those were probably said by others.

1) 200 pigeons that give you no rewards like in the 3d era (i.e. getting weapons to spawn at your safehouses after collecting multiples of ten packages). The Annihilator on top of the MeTV building doesn't even count.

2) Hanging out with friends. When I wanna hang out with people I do it in real life, not in a game. Also, this isn't The Sims.

I hate how glitchy the parking space at the Hove Beach safehouse can be. Each time I save Michelle's Merit and/or the Laundromat van there, the next thing I know, they'll be replaced by a Chavos.

That's because of the mission Ivan the Not so Terrible.

 

If you approach the cab depot from the north and not from the intended waypoint a Chavos will spawn on the parking during the chase sequence.
