        kids who were born in 2000 were much more likely to play gta iv as their first gta at around 8 years old. millennials were around 14 years old when gta sa came out and around 18 when gta iv came out and had likely played the other gta games before then. big difference when it comes to nostalgia and knowledge of the series.

          The nostalgia of the millennial is the reason why the series reverted back to goofy shit, it seems.

            just in my personal opinion, gta shouldn't take itself very seriously. it's just not that enjoyable to me. so i don't see them reverting back to goofy shit being a bad thing.

      You are severely mentally handicapped in every regard if you genuinely believe that 4 was better than San Andreas. There's a fucking reason why everyone always talks about and reminisces about San Andreas and Vice City, meanwhile only zoomers think 4 was the best, because that was their introduction to GTA.

        Well my introduction to GTA was 3, loved it, loved VC, hated SA like I've rarely hated a game, loved 4, disliked 5.

        This is the only place I see people discuss SA.
        And the zoomer argument makes no sense, "they like 4 only because they started with 4" is the same as "thr only reason you like sa is because it was your first".

          Your list is wrong. The only thing better in 4 is all the underlying tech and systems. The actual characters, story, missions, music, locations, overall vibe, etc. are vastly superior in San Andreas/Vice City compared to 4's boring ass characters, boring ass city, boring ass music, etc.

          I remember when it came out and most people couldn't even be bothered to actually finish the game because of the combination of how boring it was + how horrible the optimization was.

              Its not a gimmick anon, gunplay and destruction form a big part of the game. Cutting down on the types of weapons you could use hurt more than help. Of course I'm fine with them getting rid of the gimmick shit like flowers and dildos, that was dumb.

              GTA CTW had drug dealing and it was awesome because they got rid of the stupid hidden items, meaning you had to buy your own guns and armor. IV improved on the vigilante missions, I wish they did the same for those crappy firefighter/ambulance missions.

          Honestly, the premise is what kills it. Tommy is supposed to be this mob boss on the rise in VC and the game plays it out like it does, but in realty what we're doing is chump jobs for the other mob bosses in the area instead of actually being Scarface. Its like in Skyrim where you're the Dragonborn and everyone is supposed to suck your balls, but outside of the barebones story, everyone treats you like a chump.

            Most open world games have that problem, I know for sure Saints Row 2 did. You're the boss but still doing so much leg work. Then again I don't think they can have a good open world crime gang where you sit on your ass doing coke and telling your underlings "Hey go kill this guy and trash his house" and then wait for them to report back. Even shit like having a driver and laying low constantly like bosses do would be boring in actual gameplay

              What they should have done instead was keep Tommy as a Forelli enforcer and continue the "find out who busted the deal" story line while building yourself up in VC through new connections, fight the Colombians and carve out a slice of the pie.

              Becoming the boss sounds cool but in reality playing as the boss means no more missions and becoming a glorified manager. I can't think of a game that has done the boss angle right.

                Yeah I think it only works in movies and tv, just becuase of the drama and all the shit that can go wrong. The Scarface PS2 game kinda had some steps in the right direction with having staff you could call to bring stuff or sending them to pick up shit, but when your territories got attacked you as the boss seemed to be expected to always show up and shoot it out

                Scarface also fell apart because the same thing that happened to VC happened to it. Halfway through the game, you'll be making more money than you will have ever spend, but Tony is still doing the drug runs HIMSELF despite just getting his shit together but I give that game some slack because it was never finished.

        I can't think of much other than things that didn't really contribute to the story such as customizable cars, learnable fighting styles, driving/flying schools and such. Instead of making the game a Yakuza-style theme park full of minigames, they chose to make IV realistic and focused on the immersion.
        Younger me preferred Saints Row when it came out even though it looked worse because it felt more like San Andreas, the older I get the more I appreciate IV for what they were going for.

            I think 4 does a great job of being serious with the main story while still having plenty of fun, comedy, and some wackyness. The Liberty City documentary on the TV was some of the funniest stuff they did, characters like Brucie, Roman, Bernie, etc. provided lots of comic relief, then you had the comedy club which was fun. There's plenty of serious and funny to go around.

            I think most with nostalgia for SA likely haven't played it in years. I still love the 3D era games, but the gameplay, and gunplay specifically, has aged rather poorly. Playing IV with it's cover system and diving/rolling animations made the game feel like you were playing a movie, which I think was always their goal.

    I really wish GTA4 had done vehicle missions. I wanted to drive the garbage truck around and go to the different Mobs where they would throw bodies in the back and every time you used the crusher you risk more blood and guts flying out and attracting police attention.
    The fire truck with the game's physics would have been great, just drive around putting people on fire out, but you'd have to be careful with the fire of the hose, or you just blow people down the street into traffic to get run over.
    Vigilante was pretty fun. Some sort of boat mission would have been fun, maybe running drugs from Alderney to Bohan or something to go along with Jacob's stashes.
    The base game lacked side activities, but BOGT added some fun stuff.
