  3. Anyone else prefer GTA IV to V?

Been playing through some Rockstar games to get pumped for RDR2. Was going to play GTA V again but then I thought about playing IV instead and got WAY MORE EXCITED.

Don't get me wrong I love V but I liked the darker tone and (IMO) better story of IV. Plus LC is awesome.

Especially replaying this on PC. This game had a rough launch but now runs and looks awesome.

Anyone else share this opinion?

I definitely liked the story and characters better in GTA4. Also I'm probably one of the few that preferred the driving in 4 to 5. I prefer the map in 5 though.

The only thing about better 4 in my opinion is the darker tone and how you can block the hospital doors and shoot all the sick and wounded. It's like a quick game of hatred in GTA, you don't get that in 5. I don't get to enter the hospitals and shoot people as they're lying in bed after surgery. It just doesn't happen.

I prefer everything else about 5, the map, the cars, the way you cheat, pretty much 5 as far as single player was a HUGE step in the right direction. It still has dark tones, but GTAV was a parody of American life, not Russian.

I prefer 5, if I fail part of a mission 3 times. The game will ask me if I want to skip that part. No more replaying part of a mission again and again just so that I can progress my game.

Switching to Trevor can be really funny at times.

Yeah, 4 is my favorite. I think each game in the series got progressively better until 5. 5 was the first modern GTA where I wasn't interested in the story. The split gameplay between the characters was a cool gimmick at first, but it got tedious and held back the story in the long run.
... even on Earth Mode.

V is better in every way for me. IV was too serious.

4 was the worst imho. I remember the controls feeling clunky as hell.
