I decided to pick up SA and play with it for a while. I still enjoy it. I don't know why I think I still like SA more. I think it is the variety in everything. There are some things you can't really do in IV because of the physics, like riding on top of a train or car. No cool planes etc.

i coulda sworn you can ride on top of cars...

i think the graphics and physics make up for the lack of stuff IMO.

planes, ehh id maybe want a small cessna (AKA dodo) or soemhting but no huge ones or stunt planes or anything just something simple that i can fly around with...

I haven't played any GTA IV predecessors since its release, I haven't even gone a day without playing at least a little GTA IV since its release (although I've yet to today actually). I'm sure it's going to be very weird once I do pick up Vice City or something again..

The phyics and the driving in this game will ruin any experience for the gtas previous, All I ever wanted was ragdoll physics and I finally got them and running people down will never be the same on the other games. I recently got to try Saints Row and I just want to say wow the driving in that game is soo terrible lol.

GTA-LCS is an unknown quantity at this point
As previously stated, the overall awesomeness of GTA IV makes it near-impossible to go back to playing its predecessors. It takes the cake when it comes down to the physics, the graphics, level of detail put into everything. Yes, the other games were classics, but you can't beat perfection.

The Graphics weren't a big issue when it came to playing SA on PC. They wasn't as big of a jump as I thought. It seems like IV has just more stuff, and higher texture res.

And better shading. And better lighting. More vivid coloring. Wildly improved water. The list goes on. It wasn't just a small leap. GTA IV's graphics are incredibly improved from San Andreas. Sure we might be spoiled by games like Bioshock and Crysis and MGS4, but GTA IV's graphics are about as good as can be considering the type of game it is and how much is going on. I think The Getaway 3 will have some nice graphics if it ever comes around, but until then GTA IV has the best for a sandbox.

tbh.. i didnt really want to play the old ones again.. but my friend and i had our psp's in college the other day and we both had LCS in our psp's. so we decided 2 have a MP match.. even tho i have been playing GTA IV online i still had a lot of fun on LCS MP.. so i think there is probably life still in the old ones... even if they dont look as sexy as IV, they r still amazing games in all fairness.
