Michael was kidnapped by an alien. I mean... Seriously.

 

Escape from Los Angeles and Independence Day are full of social commentaries and emotional moments between the characters. Both are B movies, same as GTA 5.

I don't think the serious scenes are b movie level (by video game standards) in V though. In San Andreas they are, but in V they make serious attempts at dark and emotional realism and characters with depth the same way they did in GTA IV. But because unlike in GTA IV the game also includes, to use your example, alien abductions and stuff, it's a little jarring.

Try Red Dead Redemption one of this days. Way better than GTA 4 IMO.

It’s all personal preferences, i played RDR(2010) and will play the second one as soon as i can. There is no better if you ask me, it’s all about what you like and nostalgia. My favorite rockstar game list is

1-Gta III(would be Max Payne but it’s not really a rockstar game)

2-Gta IV

3-RDR

Fair enough. 

 

My favorites:

2 - GTA SA

3 - RDR

I'd say Grand Theft Auto IV has better statistics, they show my favorite vehicle colors, how much I played pool, player image, addiction level etc. Small details like that make a difference you know.

Side note: how do people say RDR is better/worse than GTA? That's like saying Red Dead Revolver is better Max Payne...

 

I had quite more fun with GTA IV as it has really unique concepts and features never really done before and done well. Many of the new stuff in GTA V has already been done before/done better in the past so outside of the story why bother? (I personally think GTA V story is a bit underappreciated in the forums but oh well).

They also say V was sour mlik from day one. We just kept heating and cooling it in hopes of getting some nutrients out of it. Now R* decided to sell it in form of powder milk.

You have the right to dislike GTA V. But criticizing V won't make GTA IV a better game. It still is inferior to the Red Dead Redemption games and maybe even ridiculous when compared to both of them (in terms of storytelling of course). 

 

I think GTA 5 wasn't serious at all, much less "deep" or emotional. It's pretty much a B Hollywood movie. The whole idea of the story is "don't think too much, just enjoy". It's full of over the top moments and jokes. 

 

Ir's better to be a good to average B movie than trying to be the next Godfather and then failing miserably.

Old post. but I don't even see a significant difference between the quality of writing between GTA IV and the Red Dead games. I love the stories in RDR1 and RDR2, but they're hardly infallible. RDR1 for instance starts to fizzle out by the time West Elizabeth rolls around. It also never dawned on me before that the entire first part of the story is a little silly how John does all these favours for people to gather the resources to storm Fort Mercer to go after Bill and he's not even there WTF? At least in GTA IV Niko's quest to hunt down Florian and Darko feels more believable when he learns Florian wasn't behind the betrayal.

 

In RDR2 Sadie's character development is honestly almost as bad as the some of the characters in GTA V and the entire Guarma segment almost derailed the story IMO. As far as I'm concerned this is more of a taste thing and it's like saying do you prefer Goodfellas or Unforgiven? Both of them are great for different reasons.

 

Most people don't even regard GTA V's story as a good/average B grade movie. It's just sh*t to them plain and simple. GTA IV's story might have its flaws, but nothing will change the fact that its story is commonly seen as the best one in the series and it must be pretty good to compare to the Red Dead games because lords knows no other GTA's story is.;)

The characters and story in GTA IV were better developed.

 

And now, GTA IV is just more true to the franchise than GTA V is. Rockstar has thrown so much Saint's Row kiddie crap into GTA V's multiplayer that it no longer feels like a GTA game. GTA V is just being milked to all hell especially given the fact that it's released on three different console generations.

Well, Algonquin Assassin quoted you late, so I will too, because this needs to be said: 

 

See that bolded bit? Yeah that’s total bullsh*t. RDR and GTA IV are like apples and oranges. 
 

You didn’t like IV and that’s fair enough, but i’ll use some of your own dumb logic on you; downplaying GTA IV’s story as a failed attempt to be the next Godfather (which it wasn’t nor was it intending to be, though that comment is along the lines of what I expect from people who have thoroughly failed to actually understand GTA IV’s story, hence why i’m sure V’s appealed to you so much but hey ho...) whilst propping up RDR and V don’t make them better games either.

I don't even get it when people say it tries to be "The Godfather". I mean yeah it's probably a bit more serious than most GTA games, but it still contains R*'s classic tongue in cheek humour. Niko himself says absolute golden one liners, but unlike GTA V, GTA IV's humour feels more organic and natural usually coming at the expense of irony or something messed up.

 

There's even an entire genre for it called "black comedy".

Man at least gta iv didn't have f*cking shark cards and actually had some f*cking good content added like the lost and gay tony dlc. You don't see kids flying oppressors in GTA 4

A well written story with engaging and memorable characters.

 

The best shooting and dynamic physics in a Gta title so far, personally I think the driving is the best too but I understand the criticism it gets.

 

A densely packed map with plenty to see.

 

First Gta to bring in stranger missions, and the best stranger missions imo.

 

Has two quality expansions which cost the same as a handful of cars in GTAO. TLaD is another gritty and dark tale of crime in LC, and TBoGT has a more light hearted approach with more ott weapons and vehicles added to try and cater to fans who prefer a game tonally more similar to San Andreas.

Because GTA IV obviously has better characters, story, etc and is definitely a fun game to play and GTA V felt sorta boring.

 

And Niko is more preferable than the whole V trio combined.
