I loved GTA IV, i am playing it as i write this, ok its paused right now but once i hit submit thats what im doing again. PC, with mods to improve textures and really not any huge great thing. Picked it up in the steam sale and as the acheivements apply to my gamertag, why not
But saying its gfx at the time were good when there was alot better out is something different, i respect that its a big game and also open world but this simply was not the case, bugs, glitches were just to big. I'm an avid Elder Scrolls fan so i know how big things can get and i know how easy it si for bugs to get missed, this wasnt the case, this was simply framerate and gfx issues throughout most of it. It played fine so to speak, but drops and glitches were quite obvious. No game is perfect, but this had big issues at lauch, some were fixed in later patches, others not at all. Google it, ignore the muppets but there is legitimate responses that detail things that could of or should be fixed, alot still not fixed to this day.
You're saying the GTA IV looked the same as Xbox...?
Maybe if you were playing on low at 1024x769 reso.
Playing 4 at 1920x1080 Ultra and it looks grand spanking.
GTA 4 on xbox lagged like a motherfu****.
