Pretty much my sentiments.

Great physics and satisfying driving/shooting but no life in the story and the characthers you interacted were meh at best.

To me SA has easily the best characthers of the series. The only ones that come close in 4 is the oldest McCreary brother and Little Jacob. Only one thats better from Vice City is Donald Love. He is still my fav all time person.

The thing I hated about IV was that you died too easily and cheats were sort of impractical.

Don't get me wrong, I thought the difficulty was good for the missions and whatnot, I just hated how hard it was to go on rampages throughout the city.

I could spend an hour or two cruising around and taking on the ****ing military in previous GTAs, but in IV it was like, "hell yeah, let's **** the town up!... oh, half a dozen cops just killed me. "

The game seemed more focused on the idea of running when being 'wanted', and didn't really seem to consider the idea of fighting those who wanted you, if you get what I mean. Maybe it's just me.

On a side-note, I'd love if the combat were like Max Payne 3. After beating MP3 and finding the storyline sort of empty, I actually assumed it was just a sneaky way of doing a combat-beta of sorts for future R* games.

Really? I don't think you died too easily in IV. It felt normal to me. Maybe you all are just bad.

I also thought the shooting mechanics were fine. Nothing special, but a massive improvement over the horrible shooting in the PS2-era games.

I think lots of people did. It seemed consistent with the release dates of all their major games the past 4 years or so, which has been mostly May. The delay genuinely caught me off guard.

I'm hoping they improve the shooting. RDR was pretty cool so I have hopes

Yeah, I'm sure they incorporate the best elements from GTA IV and RDR. But why do I have to be in school when the game comes out?

I know a guy who works for rockstar in Leith st Edinburgh, and apparantly the whole due date thing (according to him) is just a marketing ploy.

They never had any intention for an early 2013 release.

That sounds like R*.

I really can't wait for it. It's not having an entire engine built for it like IV, so that should mean more time to develop more frivolous, fun crap like was in SA.

Perhaps...

However, I'd give awkward and reluctant oral sex to anyone who could survive more than 20 minutes with a 6-star wanted rating in IV without using incredibly cheap tactics and making it no fun whatsoever. Even with the lame/impractical cell-phone cheats, it was hard for me to do anything like that.

Meanwhile, in SA and VC, I was a walking natural disaster. Shit was more fun imo, yo.

Yeah, one thing me and my friends like to do online is each get 5-6 stars, get into one car, and try to escape while being chased by an army of SWAT and overweight police officers. We usually die, but it leads to some fun times indeed.

It's true. The only good character was Niko, the driving sucked, the story was boring, Liberty City itself was boring, and almost all humor was gone from the game. The Ballad of Gay Tony was SO much better than GTA IV.

Never played IV but played ballad of Gay Tony. Boring game. GTA Vice City/Vice City Stories and San Andreas were hugely entertaining, even when not doing missions. Although when playing San Andreas I always feel a small sadness inside.

Maybe

I mean I guess it fit the feel of the game, but I never felt like an unstoppable badass like in San Andreas. I guess I just expected something different

Nah, that's cool. I realize that I'm in the minority that prefers IV over the other games. As such, I always get slightly annoyed and defensive when I see it get trashed, until I realize that it doesn't matter and get on with my day.

I always found it easier to survive on high stars on IV, and easier to escape. I think there were more things to do on it to buy time. SA was more fun to piss around on but I preferred the combat, driving and whatever on IV.
