I have played the GTA Series since the third game came out and I agree when you say Niko is not as charismatic as TV or CJ are. Frankly, I like Luis (from the Episodes) more than him. But GTA IV is great when it comes to graphics and, most of all, physics. I mean, when you hit somebody with a car in San Andreas, that poor guy literally flies away. On the other hand, in IV every single action causes a precise reaction.
I know IV was released in '08 so it had to be better than the previous games as far as those areas were concerned. But it's still a great improvement when compared to San Andreas or Vice City, let alone III.
I don't understand why you guys don't like the driving in IV. It felt pretty realistic to me. But maybe it's just because of the mods I installed.
I remember that once I had to play twice SA from the beginning because it was so mod-packed that it would crash every time I would go to downtown Los Santos. Only there! Don't ask me why...
