It's all a matter of taste. It's no secret that IV is lacking in some of the more over-the-top features that the series has become beloved for. It's easy to dismiss, but there are some activities present even in the 3D universe that you can't do in IV's Liberty, and that's not even taking into consideration your casinos, rocket bikes and jetpacks that seem to saturate almost any GTA:O lobby. What IV does have, and what I admire it for, is a dense and atmospheric environment. It doesn't rely on gimmicks, flashy clothes, pools of money or pink camouflage weaponry to engage you. It's depressing, dirty, hopeless and bleak. It's a side of the franchise we hadn't really seen since III in terms of mood. There's no respite or joy for our protagonist. His ends justify his means. Just think about it for a minute - an immigrant with a tortured past lured to a country that promises a better life by an ever-optimistic and exaggeratory cousin who has a penchant for denial and lies. All that glitters was not gold. It turns out the life that was waiting for Niko was no different in the USA than in Serbia. Is this all he was made for, all he was good for? It's the same story all over again, and his past continues to haunt him, with no real escape until the bitter end. Depending on how cruel your choices are, you either leave him with a hollow victory or the sudden loss of the one thing that made it all worthwhile.

 

It isn't sunshine, rainbows, EDM, drugs and violent raves. If you want and expect that, sure, IV is going to be a letdown. However, for the time it was released it really was a new experience and I feel like if you've joined the series late on with V or even Online, you're going to struggle with IV at times.

I think I´m leaving now and try to relax because I´m starting to have a headache... GTA IV story is far better than GTA V one, it was good, but it will never get the maturity of GTA IV story were you have to make HARD choices and all the story feels like your own nightmare when you feel the hard life of an east european inmigrant that came with that idea of the "American Dream" and he had to face the reality there and try to survive, GTA V sometimes seems like a sitcom show lol, it still has serious stuff, but nothing in comparison with GTA IV mature story, and not talking about the environment response, it so way better in GTA IV than in GTA V, and San Andreas it´s a fantastic game but like I said, GTA IV it´s the most mature GTA ever made and it´s the best in terms of AI and environment response depending on the players and NPC´s actions

GTA 4's open world is based on the story not the opposite like the other games in the series which isn't a bad thing 

But since this is an open world game after all only made to kill your extra time in your schedule ,I won't  blame people for not liking it 

Anyway I re-installed GTA 4 and I will re-experience it again and see if it's still as good as I remember and where the criticizsm is coming from

The people who find this game boring are always the most boring uninteresting people. They find it boring because it has depth and requires a personal investment that they aren't able to give because they're shallow as puddles. The game is actually an intellectual threat to them which is why they've spent the past 12 years lashing out at it.

Even if the depth is lost on someone it still isn't difficult to have fun at all.  It has the most hilarious physics, the most awesome shooting and hand to hand combat, the funniest and best to mess with NPCs, and a wanted system that doesn't constantly spoil your fun. And the story and characters have masses of humour as well as the dark stuff. Whether it's getting invested in the story or just messing around in freeroam I'd never describe it as boring. Who the hell doesn't think this is fun?

Don't get me wrong there are obviously genuine criticisms. Hell I'm the biggest GTA IV fanboy on here and there are even things I don't like about it, BUT I'd like to think after nearly 13 years if some people really do think it's boring shouldn't they move onto something that you know excites them? 

 

Personally I think GTA IV's open world is the best in the series without question. I don't care if it doesn't have dozens amounts of "content" because what it does have is almost perfectly integrated to coincide with the vision R* had for it at the time. With games like San Andreas and GTA V they're fun in small bursts, but when I just want to take a break they don't feel as fun. GTA IV is also better for roleplaying IMO. I always do the side missions to run parallel to where I'm up to into the story.

The things that I feel like GTA 4 needs is more story based content ( more side missions related to the story that's what the game was always going for ) since people see that it needs more content so I don't think that would've hurt but either way I don't really care if it has more or less content since the game's fanboys seem to enjoy it but more content that doesn't destroy the atmosphere is not a problem for me

I always thought that rockstar's vision for the game was to bring the series back to its roots in making you role-play the life of a criminal only more than anything . Even GTA 4's story seems like an improved and dark version of GTA 3's story

I won't talk about GTA 5 because I completed it once with my friend years ago but I do remember enjoying the side content anyway I enjoy all the side content in SA especially with the tips that makes them ten times easier. the one that I felt that it throwed to much sh*tty content was VCS I mean the helicopter odd jobs sucked so hard how did they think that I would waste four hours from my life for each one of them ( which is what I did lmao )

I see what you mean I do the same in San Andreas and I feel like that's how the game wanted to us to this especially that between every mission the game makes you feel like there's a huge gap between them

Anyway I remember enjoying role-playing in GTA 4 like what I once said long time ago GTA 4 non-broken Atmosphere makes walking around as Niko doing absolutely nothing or driving to Burger Shot to order food engaging

I have no problem with criticizing or not liking something /thinking it's boring but trying to change it into something totally new is BS 

Do people really want to ruin something fun for millions  and turn it into something completely new that already exists ?

Anything's boring if you need copious amounts of crap to stay entertained. I'd argue that GTA V without mods has to be one of the most boring GTAs I've played for the sheer fact that there is no depth and everything seems to exist for the "wow factor" which got old over 7 years ago. :rol:

Well, Grand Theft Auto IV is the most immersive Grand Theft Auto game created, it has a believable characters and locations, not to mention weapons and vehicles.

 

So, if you don't want to immerse yourself then perhaps the game could be... umm... boring, but... even you don't immerse yourself in video games, then the game is not boring, because of... story, characters, location... everything.

 

Anyways, not to waste your time: Lol.

I've been hearing the same thing since 2007, yeah, one year before of the game realease.

 

It had been revealed that there wouldn't be planes in the game and one of my friends and I were talking about it, well I stated that they were unnecesary in an totally urban map where planes would have zero utility, then he answered -and I remember it as if it had been yesterday-: 'You have to improve the saga with the new games not downgrade it', then I replied: 'Well I don't see how maintain an useless thing is improve but you don't see giving it a new focus, with more story-depth and more realism, the supposed accurated New York replica they are claiming to have done among other things, as an improve.' and added something like: 'And you all (I was refering to people who complain about planes) aren't looking for improvement, just want planes in the game to crash them into high buildings, terrorist style.' He looked at me surprised, as if I was stating something obvious and therefore, unnecessary to be said, and said: 'Of course I do'. For some people (many people indeed) lack of content means exclude features which they can do this kind of things: crashing planes, doing crazy massacres, mad extreme stunts, flying bikes, jetpacks... And they claim and claim that GTA has always been about that, but it isn't the case, even in the first GTA you have an attempt of story, yeah, you can beat levels without doing main missions since you just need to achieve a concrete amount of money, but even yet doing them is the fastest way to achive it, and same with GTA London, only in GTA 2 we can say that there wasn't a real plot. After these ones, GTA III came out and the story got a bigger role as you have to complete it in order to unblock all map zones and some side-missions and mini-games, so story wasn't something accessory, and this mechanic was maintained along the entire 3D era. I must add that until Vice City the most over-the-top vehicle you had was a tank, just saying.

 

So as they already did with GTA 3, with IV they went a step forward and did a deeper story and focused all the game mechanics around the plot, and also tried to add more realism into the game, which was the logic development, at least for me as very people seems to disagree, because of the open-world claim previously stated. Yes, it's an open-world game but with a story that revolves around it, and no, removing stuff that detract this by kicking your inmersion out isn't a downgrade in any way and doesn't make the game boring either.

 

But I think this kind of 'freedom-to-destroy-and-nothing-else' thoughts predominate within fandom, and I think this is why Online is so popular.

 

GTA IV has failures, as any GTA or videogame, but it isn't a boring or bad game, and is BS to claim that it isn't GTA-related as if every previous GTA were just stages of a race whose finish line were San Andreas, being that last one not only the top of GTA series' expectations but open-world games broadly, creating thus a standard for GTA games in which any deviation is seen as a detour from purity path. Giving depth or realism to GTA is not moving aside from what series meant to be, it is, in fact, the opposite.

The thing is that you CAN do crazy things like this in GTA IV (obviously minus planes and jetpacks etc), and it has the most over the top and funny physics and the most fun shooting/fighting so you can do it better than ever. You can't fly a plane into a building but you can break off a helicopter tail on a building and go spinning all over the place before crashing spectacularly. You can't fly a jetpack but you can turn on TBOGT and use the parachute to fly around (there's even a glitch where you can tap the pull up control to fly indefinitely), or just use the awesome climbing in IV to explore high buildings. You can do extreme stunts by driving or flying at high speed, doing jumps off roads/slopes/ledges, bailing out, crashing through the windscreen, doing the swingset glitch etc, it's always funny and entertaining thanks to the crazy physics that are much more over the top than SA or V, and when you die as a result you get to watch the full thing until your body stops moving, unlike in any other GTA. Going on massacres is also better than ever, the behaviour of cops and other NPCs is complex, unpredictable and amusing, running people over or shooting or fighting them is satisfying thanks to great physics and combat mechanics, explosions are awesome and can knock you over or make your ears ring, you can shoot guns out of people's hands etc. The well designed wanted system means you can have some fun at lower levels without it always escalating to higher levels if you don't want, and losing it isn't a chore. It's super fun to mess around. 

 

I get what you're saying, people complain about IV having less stuff like the number of different weapons, car customisation, over the top vehicles etc and I agree that those things aren't what make a GTA game great. But as far as having fun gameplay I really don't see what people are complaining about, it is THE most fun GTA game to do dumb sh*t in.

Yeah, you can do all that, I wasn't saying you couldn't do all that stuff I listed, I was trying to point out that it seems that, for many people, if some of them are removed from the game, then it's boring, yeah you can do crazy massacres and the physics engine can provide a better experience, but 'f*ck off the physics, just give me a flamethrower, or better yet, an alien laser-gun.', you can do extreme stunts (and for me IV's ones are the best of the entire series), but 'Argh, car physics sucks, give me back arcade driving', this kind of mentality is what I was talking about and that's why I told the anecdote with my friend. I summed up the examples because I thought it was clear enough and in order to not to enlarge the post even more.

 

I also don't get why people complain so much, you still can do a lot of things in IV and EFLC that could be done in previous games (even in an improved way as you stated) and they have a lot of new and funny things to do.

So you commend trolling? Looks like I was right. The OP only made an account to make a couple of posts and f*cked off lol. It would be more commendable if he actually provided reasons why he thinks it's boring than the typical "derp, derp IV is boring cuz it isn't San Andreas or V" rubbish instead of running away like a bitch.

 

Takes me back to 2008/2009 when the GTA IV hating trolls infested this site. Ah those were the days.
