Certain things you prefer in one of GTA IV/TLAD/TBOGT to the other two

Recommended Posts

Now obviously, GTA IV is the "full" game that got the longer story, but there's no denying that its expansion packs improved in certain things, and maybe the other way around in certain cases.

 

So, are there specific elements and details that you prefer in the standard GTA IV to The Lost and Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony, or the other way around for each one of them? And which entry you overall prefer?

As for me:

 

IV : TLAD

  1. Longer story, obviously.
  2. More diverse missions, consisted of more interior shootouts and chases on both boats and helicopters.
  3. Two different endings.
  4. Locked bridges, but that's understandable to keep them unlocked by default in the expansions since it's not worth it to lock them for like five missions or what-have-you.
  5. The weather color filters.
  6. Less chances of bailing out of car windshields.
  7. Random characters are more hidden within the radar. Their blips don't show up unless you get close enough, which adds for more exploring value.

IV TBOGT

  1. All of the points I mentioned above minus 6.
  2. Story and narrative.
  3. Characters and dialogue.
  4. Atmosphere.
  5. More grounded and believable missions.
  6. Safehouses.
  7. The existence of the backup system.
  8. The existence of friend calls.
  9. Multiplayer mode.

 

TLAD : IV

  1. Additional weapons.
  2. Additional vehicles, mostly choppers.
  3. More rewarding side-missions. Gang Wars reward you with weapons spawning at your safehouses, and each of the Bike Races and Angus' Bike Thefts reward you with bikes spawning at your safehouse parks.
  4. Gang Wars > Vigilante.
  5. Bike Races with basketball bats > Car Races.
  6. Less chances of falling of bikes.
  7. The return of the on-rail mission sequence.
  8. The addition of Air Hockey, Arm Wrestling and Hi-Lo Cards.
  9. Jim's free weapon deliveries.
  10. Friend calls are slightly rarer. But fortunately, still existent compared to TBOGT.
  11. Less flying rats to shoot down. 50 > 200. (not mathematically 😛)

TLAD : TBOGT

  1. Story and narrative.
  2. Characters and dialogue.
  3. Atmosphere.
  4. More grounded and believable missions.
  5. TLAD's criminality customized additional weapons > TBOGT's military-grade additional weapons.
  6. More rewarding side-missions. Each of the Bike Races and Angus' Bike Thefts reward you with bikes spawning at your safehouse parks.
  7. Gang Wars > Drug Wars.
  8. Bike Races with basketball bats > Triathlons.
  9. Angus' Bike Thefts & Stubbs' Dirty Laundry > Club Management & Sky Diving.
  10. Arm Wrestling & Gambling > Champagne Drinking & Dancing.
  11. Less chances of falling of bikes.
  12. Safehouses.
  13. The existence of the backup system.
  14. Jim's free weapon deliveries.
  15. The existence of friend calls.
  16. Multiplayer mode.

 

TBOGT : IV

  1. Drug Wars > Vigilante.
  2. The addition of the Fight Club.
  3. The return of the on-rail mission sequence.
  4. The return of the parachute. Not that big of a deal, though.
  5. The addition of Air Hockey and Champagne Drinking. 
  6. Less flying rats to shoot down. 50 > 200. (not mathematically 😛)

TBOGT : TLAD

  1. The addition of the Fight Club.
  2. The weather color filters. Sunrises and sunsets turn pink, but that's more bearable than TLAD's lasting heavy yellow effect.
  3. Less chances of bailing out of car windshields.
  4. The return of the parachute. Not that big of a deal, though.

 

As for which entry of the three I prefer, I equally like IV and The Lost and Damned the most.

-grenade launcher and sticky bombs in eflc

-relaxing storyline, atmosphere and missions in gta 4, i personally think gta 4 is more refreshing than tbogt with niko’s perspective and other moments of the other characters

SonOfLiberty

I'll keep this short and sweet (like my sex life)…

 

GTA IV > TLAD

 

-Niko is cooler than Johnny. Love ya Johnny, but no one messes with the ice cold Slavic killer.

 

GTA IV > TBOGT

 

-Better clothing options. Always disliked that TBOGT didn't really improve on this and in some ways went backwards from GTA IV. 

 

TLAD > GTA IV

 

-Riding bikes is much easier because Johnny's harder to fall off.

 

TBOGT > GTA IV

 

-Caged fighting is pretty fun and puts GTA IV's awesome melee combat to better use more than GTA IV does.

 

TLAD > TBOGT

 

Gang wars is more fun than drug wars. Plus I can't stand how Luis is always giving Armando and Henrique sh*t in the story for dealing yet he actively helps to do these? Johnny on the otherhand has no reservations because he puts loyalty and brotherhood first. 

 

TBOGT > TLAD

 

The random characters are better and more memorable. I lol'ed at that British woman's (can't remember her name though) reaction to the handjob video playing in Star Junction. :lol:

Self-Destructive Man

TLAD/TBOGT : IV

       -All the additional vehicles, sidemissions and activities.

       -Updated characters models. I really think R* should have updated the DLC characters in the main game.

GTA IV to TLAD/TBOGT:

 

- The fact that the Angels of Death operate in Broker and Dukes, rather than Algonquin. It feels more suitable for a biker gang.
