Take Two has announced that Grand Theft Auto IV has sold over 20 million units.
over 100 million all together for the gta series. good job R* earned it for there hard work and not sending us out rehashes of the same game.
i do need to finish it at some point ive finished all the others,just this one bored me to tears anyway well done R* you changed gaming as we know it
I thought GTA IV was the best in the series to date! The graphics, combined with a much more believable storyline were what sealed the deal for me... not to mention the inclusion of MP! Don't bring up the Saints Row argument of there not being enough action. Sure R* could've done a better job after you finished the game (nothing really to do) but don't go saying it wasn't fun like SA was. It took a different more realistic direction which added to the game, while retaining what GTA is all about... mindless violence :D and besides if your looking for SA style fun I feel the TBOGT more than filled that need imo
Caleb I agree with you, however my favorite thing about it was the euphoria engine. That thing is just amazing to me. I could just ride around for hours hitting people with the car just to watch them tumble realistically. It’s the same with RDR, I love the way the NPC react to their environment.
thats whats good about gaming opinions we all enjoy different things bubbles to both of you
I didn't know what these guys were talking about... till I tried to play it through again! Got halfway through and was like... F&^% THIS!!! But pushing people down stairs and in front of trains was great fun!
Hopefully, the Grand Theft Auto series won't suffer from the same hate as the Call of Duty franchise does.
they don't release same thing every year. :p
I loved GTA 4, so many people hate it for many different reason, I know it isn't San Andreas, but it a great game in it's own right.
Yep only GTA game I ever got into.
It was the only one I enjoyed. I written off the series due to immaturity of the previous titles. I got the game and dlc for cheap last year after I heard it was different. I hope the next game doesn't take a step backwards.
Great sales, but GTA IV was over-hyped and its not the game many were hoping it would be(myself included).I hope GTA V is better.
But that's because people were hoping it'd be San Adreas 2.0. Considering it was the first game on the current gen of consoles taking the series in new directions, it thought it was an epic game. Things can only get better from here on out, I think.
GTA IV on pc is the best becuase of mods etc.
I don't have a PC powerful enough for gaming anymore (my last one took to filling up my room with smoke then exploding), but I have to agree with this. If I still had a monster PC, GTA modded in the only game I'd ever play.
Where did you get those pics? They look awesome, especially the first one.
There my pics i take with fraps. But the only trouble with the pc version is you need a powerfull pc becuase it not optermzed very well.
Give me Vice City and San Andreas over IV any day of the week.
amen to that brother
its still a good game
Forget GTA IV, Vice City or San Andreas. Give me GTA V and blow my mind once again R*. Edit: I do like those games, but think of the future!
Like killzone 3 and halo reach
Congrats T2 and Rockstar. Just beat GTA IV two days ago for my 4th time and now on The Lost and the Damned. One of my favourite games this gen. I've easily put over 150 hours into GTA IV alone. It's my favourite entry in the GTA franchise and I can't wait for the next one.
Yeah GTA 4 was the only GTA game I have ever beat and I played all of them. That being said im done with the series.
great game , people hated it because it's not like san andreas...
GTA San Andreas Love !
While i acknowledge this is a great game, there was a number of elements that i feel somewhat scuppered my overall enjoyment of the game. These include most dammingly the repetitive nature of the mission structure. Assassin's Creed and Far Cry 2 for me suffered the same fate. The game developers built these incredible worlds (toy boxes ) for us to play around in but got somehow lost in crafting a varied mission structure in said games. Assassin's Creed remedied this in their sequel. The mobile phone (for me) just became a hindrance. Having to break off from a mission to take a girlfriend for a meal just became a chore in the end. Ps3 owners got the shaft from Rockstar with a sub HD game. A feat they would later repeat with Red Dead Redemption. When i have paid 420 pounds for an HD system i would expect at least parity with the cheaper and older Xbox 360. Rockstar were content to use their engine that had been used on Xbox 360 previously on a table tennis title. This engine proved detrimental to getting the optimum full use out of the Ps3 hardware. If Rockstar go for the hat-trick and shaft Ps3 owners again i WILL NOT BUY your future titles. The hand to hand fighting mechanics felt broken. The shooting mechanics felt somewhat broken. A lack of fluidity. A sense of over the top fun seemed to be lacking in this installment. Taking all of the above into account, i do however give kudos to Rockstar for creating a detailed and incredible world with great storytelling and characters. I congratulate them on their success and i hope their next game can be a huge improvement for the GTA franchise.
I have both GTA 4 and Red dead redemption for ps3 and both look great.
I agree with you. I have both for the 360, and I watched all the comparisons. Yes the 360 versions have a slight advantage in a few areas, but all and all the don't make the PS3 versions "bad". They are still great games and the very minor differences aren’t enough to write home about. I know the "WAR" gets heated on this site and people use anything they can as ammo against the other side, but really the few small differences aren’t that big a deal. Their for sure not a deal breaker in my opinion.
If you expect parity with the cheaper and older Xbox 360, why don't you complain to Sony? Big open world games require a lot of video RAM, and unfortunately that's something that is lacking on both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 - but in the PS3 just a little more because the OS is more resource hungry and because the memory is split. It's not Rockstar's fault that you agreed to pay more for a console that has less available video RAM. I'm personally still surprised at what developers can do with so little ram in open world games and how far the optimization works. It's not just Rockstar: Just Cause 2 for example actually manages to run beautifully on consoles with just 512MB of total, while the PC version requires a minimum of 2GB(!) system RAM for the lowest settings (and that's not including video RAM) Your other complains are obviously valid and I share them: something doesn't feel right compared to some other shooters and melee combat games (RDR is better in that regard BTW), but I think that it's still tremendously better then the old GTA mechanics (which people simply completely forgot about how twitchy they feel after we got used to this generation of games). I think that this still doesn't take away from how brilliant GTA IV is - the best in the series side by side with Vice City IMO. The game is absolutely awesome on the PS3 and the graphics are just the icing on the cake
Sorry but gta 4 is the weakest in the series, but by no means a bad game, infact it is a huge technical leap. the next one should be fantastic. RDR was a little better than gta 4, LA Noire is looking like it will be better than RDR. Rockstar gets incrementally better this gen with each game.
Wow, it's taken nearly 3 years for GTA4 to reach 20 million, Modern Warfare 2 did that in 6 months. Just shows how massive the COD brand is even over juggernauts like GTA.
well... i wonder how this crappy game sold so much... oh wait! overhype and 10/10 from across all the reviewers.
I enjoyed RDR more than GTA4, but yeah, Rockstar deserves every last bit of that money. Amazing quality on their games.
I have the original GTA4 and i plan to the get Complete Edition soon to play the DLC
The DLC is great man, well worth it :)
