Why is GTA 4 hated so much?!?!
 

 
Was in the other GTA 4 thread and one of the comments struck me it was of somebody saying they didnít give the dlc for GTA 4 a chance because they hated the original game. And itís something Iíve heard for years about how people hate this game for some myself included i loved this game. I enjoyed a more realistic approach to the life of an immigrant coming to America in search of a new life and escaping their war torn country or escaping bad past memories. GTA 4 took the series in to a more serious approach and if this game never happened I fear GTA wouldíve went the way of Saints Row over the top goofy game violence that you would forget hours later. What do you feel about GTA 4 was it a good or bad step for the series?

Characters
Repetitive Missions

I like gta iv also. I never got why people hate it. I guess it general consensus the weakest of the series but even with that the game still is a 9.90 out of 10. They made gtaiv that way to leave room for v and the nxt coming gta which will be set in a earlier time maybe late 90s.

Like I said earlier I loved it too, but mention it to a group of people and some will say it was horrible. I get the controls or the setting, but the story is just so well put together you get to view people of different backgrounds and seeing how they survive in this huge city. San Andreas will always have a special place for me itís the game that to me was the most creative, but story wise Rockstar has yet to surpass GTA 4!

People gonna smack me but I like gta iv better than san Andrea's and I think gta iv had the best controls in the series.

I like 4 better than 5..... the gunplay, the original soundtrack, the driving felt more realistic, it captured the grittiness of nyc and the storyline was better, nico talking sh*t was funny, the characters were more charismatic....5 was cartoonish to me they dialed down the violence subtly...(5 did have better missions though)...4 reminds of 3 in a way

Like homie above said, I thought part 5 was cartoony and I didnt like it.

Part four will always be dope to me, I'm from the Bronx and they had all the landmarks in that bi*ch! They had fordam road, Bronx zoo, big puns mural, and even Co op city!!!

South Bohan had mad apartments and uptown had more houses.

One of the things I liked best about GTAIV was how the cars had "weight" to them when you drove em instead of the more arcade type feel of all the other games.

I always thought a Twisted Metal game with cars that drove like that instead of the arcade type feel would be dope.

Don't see too much hate for it personally but the times I did it was cuz it was 'too serious' (which was the point of the damn game in the first place IMO). Lotta people must've not liked the fact there were no jetpacks or whatever silly sh*t they were missing I guess lol

I felt like Niko’s cousin selling him a dream to come live in his ocean front property could easily have happened to me. I had homies that lied and lived just like he did. Story wise the sh*t was just realistic as fu*k!

Lol I didnt even think that much into it. I'll never forgot the 1st day we played it, all I could think was glad I didnt waste my money on this sh*t. Basically was not even a step up from San Andrea's besides graphics

Its because it didnt even come close to living up to San Andreas. Even though the graphics and environment blew everything out of the water at the time, the gameplay felt stripped down.

It wasnt a bad game but it wasnt the sandbox experience people became acclimated to after playing San Andreas. I never even finished it and GTA is by far my favorite non sports title.

That game was solid but I do remember it being the least popular of all the gta’s

Probably cuz the character and storyline

Totally get that I mentioned that too, but if we are talking strictly about the story no GTA game has come close to the cinematic feel you get when playing GTA 4!
