One of the very rare cases where DLC was done right. This is what DLC should have been, a proper expansion pack, not what it has become today.
Right, the dlc's were better than the actual game imo
Ballad of gay Tony was great
Back in a time when we got single player DLC for GTA when it was promised
In my opinion this was by far the best part of the GTA IV trilogy. It was fun, didn't take itself too seriously, and was overall a more satisfying experience. TL&D was alright, but it felt a bit dull to me. Johnny was a cool character but something just felt "off" about that expansion. GTA IV itself was good overall, but at times it felt too serious. That seriousness and the "realism" had a negative impact on the gameplay. The writing and performances were a big step up for the series, but it could have benefited from lightening up a bit more often.
I thought Johny was a great character, who was tough as nails, which made it kind of weird to see him killed off in such an easy manner in GTA5.
Yeah that always bothered me. They turned him into such a pussy in GTA V. It just didn't fit him. And the fact that he was back together with Ashley, and started a new chapter of The Lost? It just went against the ending of TL&D.
The glitzy Manhattan atmosphere of this dlc was amazing.

The Ballad of Gay Tony is one of the greatest expansions ever made.
I’m surprised R* never release any dlc for gta5 or rdr 2. Well I’m due to play first time western game and cannot wait!!
Until you see how much money they made selling in game currency for GTA Online and I guess Red Dead Online too
I played it once the final collection was out all the dlc and it was a great experience and just makes the way R acts with dlc now even more disappointing
Man I can’t believe this was the only DLC Rockstar have ever done for a GTA game, IT WAS SO DAMN GOOD.
Greediness is cancer. All they care about is online now so they can sell their sharkcards...
And there are some people that say microtransactions have no negative effect on gaming. This is just another example where they are clearly wrong.
Single player DLC I member. Early Rockstar dlc was and still is my favourite to this day and they charged $15 for an extra 24 hours of content for GTA IV, and rdr. I remember looking at mass effect 2 doc and buying it then feeling ripped off that it was only 2 hours of content per pack but now I'd happily settle for that.
I forgot how good undead nightmare was on red dead
I played Lost and the Damned thought it was boring but I did play Ballad of Gay Tony I thought it was great still have to finish it but from what I played I liked it.
TBoGT and TLaTD were both fantastic DLC. I wish GTA5 had of received that kind of love from the studio.
This and the biker dlc were both so dope. I revisited this game on PC, with a mod bc the base game plays so bad. Lemme tell you, this game was/is fantastic
This DLC was superb.
