Arguably the greatest compliment we could give to Grand Theft Auto IV was that it was always fun to play.
One of my favourite games of all time. If it were not for this game, RDR1, Gta5 and RDR2 wouldn't be the games they were. This game had set the base for Rockstar's modern open living worlds. Also, it still has the best gta story.
People forget the lines around the block for this game when it came out. Articles calling it the greatest technical achievement of the last 10 years bar none.
The TBOGT dlc was perfect.
So weird how opinions can differ so greatly. The greatest compliment (?) I could give it is that it helped redouble my beliefs of not getting wrapped up in hype, giving professional reviews a *healthy* dose of skepticism, & to NEVER preorder. I wasn't going to get it, but finally bought into the immense hype & near perfect review scores. Preordered a copy the day before release, got it home and...was really underwhelmed. Just really just didn't get it. And it didn't help that things which were said to be much improved, like shooting, still felt exceedingly awkward. It was an impressive open world, but it wasn't filled with anything I found particularly engaging. But the lesson it taught me has stood the test of time - didn't preorder CP2077, and now I can wait & reward them with a purchase when the game is finally a complete, functional product...and probably save 50% in the process.
My least favourite game in the series. And yes, I'm including GTA1 and 2.
It still has the best story and protagonist in the series
