This topic was updated on 21.03.2020
The reason for update is this - my original opinion about best GTA IV version has changed
Thing is, it's been almost 2 years after I created the original topic, and during those 2 years I somewhat continued to digging into different GTA IV versions, and this lead to discovering another interesting aspects and features of IV patches
So, for anyone interested - I'm leaving the original topic almost untouched,
