GameNTrain Author Simon Marshal writes: As far as gaming series go, gamers normally have fonder memories of the games which preceded the latest release. Everyone reminisces about the wonderful mechanics of Assassin’s Creed II compared to Assassin’s Creed III and the same goes for franchises such as Dead Space and Bioshock. With one of the largest releases this generation in Grand Theft Auto V, why has it become so popular to think of Grand Theft Auto IV as being a terrible game which everyone hated? What has happened over the past 5 years for the community to suddenly turn its back on something which was considered a masterpiece at the time? For me, the game did lack something that was clear in previous Grand Theft Auto games but it is still an excellent game and should not be dismissed so easily now that the sequel has arrived.
