Re: Why do you love/hate Grand Theft Auto IV?
The story is very dry in GTA4 and often gets dull in spots. The main character is not very interesting. The city is too repetitive when compared to the varied environments of GTA:SA. Having to constantly do buddy-buddy things (or dates) with people to maintain your relationship feels like a waste of time.
I don't hate the game, I just think it wasn't as good as San Andreas or Vice City. They improved the graphics tremendously, but the rest of the game suffered.
