5 Ways Grand Theft Auto IV is Better Than GTA V

It goes without saying that we at Gamers Heroes love Grand Theft Auto V. However, we feel like Grand Theft Auto IV did some things better than Grand Theft Auto V. Here are five things that would make Grand Theft Auto V an 11 out of 10 in our books. (Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

gta v is overall better than IV no doubt but IV still has better aspects

1-physics, car handling in gta v is more responsive which is a plus but the physics are a bit dumbed down due to of course the console limitations (i missed IV's detailed crunchy yummy vehicle physics), bikes in TLAD are waaaay better than in V

2- shock value, GTA IV was absolutely shocking when it first came out, gta v looks amazing, lots better than IV and one of the most if not the most technically impressive game in this gen but didn't have the same shock feel as IV, u feel like IV truly deserved that IV number, V feel like an upgraded IV

other than my whining, GTA V is absolutely phenomenal

No kidding about #2. I remember when GTA IV hit in 2008. There weren't many sandbox games out at the moment, so needless to say GTA IV made a huge impact.

I think everything about GTA V is better...including the things listed here.

True, this is an opinionated piece, but I really hope things like the rumored PC release pop up.

I do, too. I would love a PC version...if I can get a decent PC. My tower is borked.

I agree with some of his points, but saying there's no punk music???? Channel X is filled with punk bands.

I liked the radio stations in GTA IV better and the ability to stream my music from my PC on Independence FM. Also, the lack of cops in ordinary traffic and patrolling the sidewalks is kind of odd in GTA V. Other than those things I am really liking GTA V.

Im still amazed that no option to use headphones for constant music exists ... Annoying when good song is on and then u get out of car .... Which also brings up another point I disagree with time as part of criteria for gold, silver , bronze mission rating ... Time taken has no bearing on how well or creative u are in completing a mission ... They are related because I often miss the news casts due to having to rush missions ....
Flight controls are pretty bad overall ,
Thats about it tho , the game is amazing !
