I've only ever played GTA IV on console, but anytime I can wish this masterpiece happy anniversary is a good thing.


Happy 10th anniversary GTA IV's PC version.👍

Sad, but true - the quality of IV PC port is far from perfection, and we should not expect positive movements regarding this in near future ...

Ten years ago, the whole nightmare started for us PC users, lol.


I still remember to this day how in the days after the PC release, hundreds of people complained that GTA IV didn't run properly on their laptops. And I was like, WTF? Did they really expect a game this heavy to run well on laptops? Not even today our most powerful gaming PC's are capable of running GTA IV well, and a lot of water has passed under the bridge in ten years.


I got retail copies of IV and EFLC many years ago, but my current installation of IV is a mess, and I'm thinking of getting them on Steam with the modern patches. I would need some fixes though, like the music thing. No way I'm playing a GTA IV version with cut music due to greedy Rockstar.

Did you see the frightened ones? Did you hear the falling bombs? Did you ever wonder...


...why we had to run for shelter when the promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?

Even if RDR2 became my favourite game overtaking GTA IV, it still remains a masterpiece in my eyes. I've lots of good memories on this game, it's really a shame that GTA IV 10th anniversary didn't receive any attention by Rockstar (a part the infamous "Song Removal Update").

GTA IV and EFLC will always be installed in my PC even if I can't play them with a decent framerate. Very recently I changed my 1920x1080 monitor with a good 2560x1440 display without replacing my GTX 970: I had to modify all the settings in every single game, except GTA IV that runs at exactly the same FPS as before. So happy birthday GTA IV PC Version!
