You guys keep complaining that GTA IV has left out many things. But do you realize that they actually left it out in order to make the rest of the game, perfect which is more important than some useless things that were in San Andreas. I can tell you that GTA IV is the only GTA game they've ever made that has reached this quality of perfection in every area of the game.
Every game gets boring, but I feel that the fact that GTA San Andreas had some things that GTA IV didn't makes GTA San Andreas worth the few hours of playing still. It still allows the older GTAs to retain their fun factor and replayability value.
