How would you rate GTA IV now?

  1. 1. How would you rate GTA IV now?

    • Between 8 to 10 (I love GTA IV and voting here proves I'm not a child with taste for fine video games)
    • Between 5 to 7 (Good game, but not really a fan)
    • Between 3 to 4 (Don't like it and I have no taste)
    • Between 0 to 2 (I'm a troll and should stick to playing crappy video games instead)

Like a solid 9.5. Seriously, one of the all time greats. There's something about IV that stick to me that other GTA games dont have(maybe except VC). Idk I just love the artwork, soundtrack, characters, mature story, and the overall dark vibe the game has. Whenever I think about GTA, IV and VC instantly come to mind. 

Another person with this great combination of GTA games.

 

It’s funny because GTA IV and Vice City really don’t share a lot in common regarding their tone, theme, atmosphere etc yet they both still tick all the right boxes.

 

I would also throw GTA III into the mix too. These three games are GTA to me through and through.

I have actually returned to play GTA IV, but the problem is that my laptop is f*cking trash, it's pretty fun tbh, but the problem is you need a powerful PC.

That’s one of the things I love about it. It’s possible to die from NPCs ganging up and it’s oh so sweet when you kick their arses and escape with a slither of health left.😀

The best part is you can't even bail out by running away that easily since they'll run after you fast and relentlessly, even following you into your safehouse.

I remember once a cop chasing me into the Broker safe house and he shot me to death so Niko’s body fell back onto the bed.😛
 

That was an important thing GTA IV introduced to the series. Next to no loading times in interiors allowing things like this to happen making the game feel more organic and realistic. You couldn’t just retreat back to your safe house like previous GTA games until it was actually “safe”.

There's a couple where you can (Middle Park East and Playboy's penthouse - just because of the apartment being an elevator ride away I guess) but yeah I like that there's safehouses you can enter with no loading and continue the action. I always seem to end up with trouble in the Bohan safehouse, I remember having a good fight with a Spanish Lord who chased me in there and said "If I knock your teeth out will you give me a blow job" lol and I've had a lot of shootouts with police from behind the kitchen counter. Definitely makes the city feel more real when you can go in and out of buildings naturally like that.

That's something that never fails to shock me about GTA IV, these guys can run! (faster than Niko can which is weird, but they can run!)

I think when Niko's at full speed he can run slightly faster than NPC's/cops (so it's possible to get away) but he gets tired and has to run slower after a while and they don't. So it balances out nicely.

for most people yeah, but there's definitely some people who uses CJ's running animation and look like the flash compared to Niko. (they're usually black or are janitors)

I remember one time that a Cop stole my car. I was trying to lose the cops and I saw one of them chasing me with my car (Which was a Blue Banshee car).

Just now, I did the infamous Swingset Glitch.

 

I froze the game with Niko sitting in the air.

10 outta 10, it really makes you FEEL like Niko Bellic.

Okay so bit of a story time.

 

A few days ago I got home from Denmark where I worked for almost two months. With me I brought a PS3 which I bought to lose some time when I'm not working. It had a really good price for what it was offering. 2 controllers, 8 games. 1 of those 8 games was GTA IV. After a long, long time I was about to play it back on console again. Since the PC release I only played it on that. 

 

I booted the game and first thing I noticed is the lower fps. It bothered me for about 10 minutes and I never see it now. However the second thing I noticed is that I was enthralled by the game. It's been a year or two since I last played it, but holy heck was I enjoying the game. It literally reminded me of what R* was capable of doing. I love Niko, I love the characters, I love the boat physics driving and I love Liberty City.

 

The game doesn't have a lot of features, but I still like driving around the LC listening to The Journey and having a good time. Back then and now and probably in the future I will rate this game 10/10. No regrets
