So, I got back to GTAIV again last night. And once again was blown away by the game.
It truly is a masterpiece. And not just a masterpiece, but the best game ever made.
The artistic, yet highly realistic and incredibly detailed visuals.
The brilliant, lively npcs.
The atmospheric sounds and great music.
The perfect voice acting.
The unforgettable main characters.
The great, convoluted story that keeps surprising you.
The solid gameplay.
The depth of the sandbox, from internet cafes to radio news to bowling alleys.
The gritty, down to earth approach that made it all feel so real and mature.
Yeah, it really is hard to find fault in this one.
No wonder GTAIV is still the highest scoring game of all time on Metacritic. For everyone who is anyone in the gaming circles, agrees on the undisputed mastery and majesty of GTAIV.
Sure, the game has its share of haters, just like every other masterpiece. But then, can you really expect Fortnite players or DMC fans to have the to capacity to comprehend a true masterpiece?
