Even a decade later, few open world games have come out with the personality, the realistic visuals and almost perfect complexities, and relatable and engaging characters as GTA IV. Unlike this game's successor, GTA IV did not try to be all things to all people. Music is indeed a weakness, and I did miss the GTA:SA flying and gym, but other wise, a more accessible, less cumbersome game than V. Especially with each of the different things the DLCs add on individually. SA is still best, but GTA IV is the unsung hero of the entire franchise.
Rockstar, give us a remake already. Or at least a PS4 port.
