Grand Theft Auto 4 players celebrate the 15th anniversary, sharing stories and screenshots

15 years ago today Rockstar Games has captured the game world by releasing Grand Theft Auto IV for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Now, all these years later, players share their love for the game, publishing screenshots, stories and sincere memories in honor of the fifteenth anniversary.

Released on April 29, 2008, Grand Theft Auto IV returned players in Liberty City through the prism of Niko Bellik, a former soldier from Eastern Europe, who moved to the USA to avoid his criminal past. This was the first part "Universe HD" Grand Theft Auto, which now includes two spin-offs, The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned, as well as Chinatown Wars, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto: Online.

Depending on who you are saying, Grand Theft Auto IV is often considered one of the greatest games in the entire GTA series. Even 15 years later, fans are still playing, reviewing and simply admired how well the game has withstood the test of time.

One of the users Reddit shared the sabredite of the games by several intra-game screenshots from Grand Theft Auto IV and the subsequent spin-off of The Ballad of Gay Tony.

While the other simply wrote: "With the 15th birthday, one of the greatest games in history, Grand Theft Auto IV".

One of the users shared the story of how Grand Theft Auto IV was the first game that he pretended.

The first game that I have ever preceded. Mom took me for a midnight release, some guy gave me Xbox360. And although the next day I had testing at school, I did not go to save me to play the game for an hour. Until now, years later, this is my best birthday.

Another fan called Grand Theft Auto IV "the most deeply incredible game", which he ever played. And the other even explained why he considers the game revolutionary for that time:

GTA 4 was as revolutionary for games with the open world in 2008, like GTA 3 in 2001. The transition from San Andreas to 4 was huge from the point of view of the interactivity of the map and how alive the world of Liberty City seemed alive, and then they released 2 DLC packages, which were also good. Despite its shortcomings, this is a classic Rockstar.

Many commentators agreed that Grand Theft Auto IV still withstand the test of time and is an excellent game even today. However, many were shocked by how old the game turned out to be, and one of the users said that "can not believe at all", that Grand Theft Auto IV is already fifteen years old.

Some hoped that Grand Theft Auto IV would be released to the anniversary "Definitive Edition". But after the unsuccessful release of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is poorly believed that Rockstar Games will want to go along this way again.

He rummaged and found his face) the truth is one disk flew off, but the key was activated without problems.

What is really XP installed ?

I just have 2 systems with one with Windows XP and Windows 10 and the second modern iron on Windows 10.

On XP simple iron, Fufix 8350, RAM 16 GB DDR3 (XP sees only 3.46 GB) and the GTX 780TI 3GB video card, I will change the vidyuhu on the GTX 980TI because the craftsmen found a way to run 970-980 of the Windows XP by editing the driver. Although the latest version of the Driver on XP was version 368.81

It is not necessary to write about this. a dozen does not require modern iron, unlike the 11th axis and then according to the TPM 2 protection module.0

Until now, the best in the series

Agree! In principle, all GTA is good, but specifically the fourth is the adult and serious, or something. Plus, the scale is amazing.

P.S. Jacob is the most frenzied character in the whole game)

Gorgeous game! I really like car physics here. It is a pity that in 5 parts the physics was a little simplified. IV part recently repaired. I enjoyed trips around the city by different transport 🙂

Some hoped that Grand Theft Auto IV would be released to the anniversary "Definitive Edition". But after the unsuccessful release of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is poorly believed that Rockstar Games will want to go along this way again.

It was just necessary to develop the forces of their own studios, and not to outsource to the guys who only engaged in porting. Yes, and GTA 4 is a full remake: with a change in gameplay mechanics, adding new content. There is absolutely no sense in the remaster, since the graphics and animations are perfectly preserved.

Yeah, especially the graphics, which compared with the five faded

I agree, but I would like to tighten the textures, I can redo some things at all (for example, a mobile phone), the animation animations, improve the drawing range, otherwise small items appear in two meters, and the microfrisis is still not cured.

Normal graphics, especially for its years, the five and later came out in the 5-hazardous sunny weather, and in 4 at least another time of the year and the graphics are suitable for this time, although the textures can be slightly tightened

The norm there is a graph, I play the ultras) Yes, there are micro moments in the graphics, they were even on the average settings when I played on the old system .Apparently optimization is very strongly lame .But with traffic there is trouble and sadness, you put on full traffic, fun begins there . The best option is to put half the traffic .

The entire game is covered with Sepia, for 2023 the graphics are outdated

I was 20, I bought a new computer on my blood and saw GTA4 on a shelf, we did not have an Internet in the village, so I almost drowned, TC did not know what was after SA part. How much I spent behind her. I remember the first impressions when I flew out the car window))))))

And then I studied in the sharaga and bought a pirate so they also faded when Nie was getting drunk and how funny they stood with a novel on their feet

Feel like an oldist. "Why eat cabbage if there is a potato?" Yayayaya-BDA-BDEEEE. I am in Soviet times ooooo. and I am in the console time ooooo

I have already passed all GTA 4 on x360. I had times, played for pleasure

This is one of the few games that took place several times. The actually standing game was for its time

Oh yes, I remember these beautiful hours spent on this game. Once I decided to strip a club to go and order a girl. And at the same moment, an unauthorized assault consisting of my relatives was arranged in my room.

The best in his series. And probably, it will remain forever.

I remember how in the 9th grade, we walked home with a friend and went to the store with disks to let down the saliva on the way. Saw a pirate disc with GTA IV. Naturally, there was no money. And about the fact that the new GTA had no idea came out. I ran to all pairs to my grandmother, ask for money. We ran to the store with money (with a friend, not with granny) and I bought a disk. With shaking hands, he inserted into the drive and began to install. The installation took all night. And the game did not go, because my Windows XP was SP2, and the game required SP3. Of course, at that age we did not understand what Windows updates are. And they referred to the fact that it was not an ancient computer, but the disc is fired. Changed in the store for another copy. The result is the same problem. But then, bring a friend of the hacker. He put Service Pack 3 from his disk and the game went. My house gathered in my house 12. I shared the first launch with such a company) and began to play under the exclamations of friends. This is not to convey in words. But now I remember, on the night before the exam, I completed the plot.
Golden times.

What can you tell here.
Well, for starters, the soundtrack in the very start of the game and download – masterpiece. Further, you can only list what it is only worth putting on the GG into a tracksuit and clench from the cops under the Tsoi or the uploaded "Bi -2 – no one writes to the colonel"

I met a game in 2008. Relatives gave the first computer, and on the computer. The table lay a pair of discs of which was GTA IV, the same version with a drunken camera and cars with a stalled engine) low settings – soap, but stable 60 FPS.

Further, already at the end of the era of the fourth part, they presented a license disk. Then the network game reluctantly lived, playing was still fun)

I remember how I downloaded a bunch of patches to GTA 4 on PG for a long time. The patches were different – some had to be installed sequentially and cumulative.

And here I am GTA 4 download

Ha, and I have always been downloaded)

This is Stemovskaya?! She’s cut there.

What is it cut? Gfwl was cut, cleaned online. Who needs him in GTA 5 people go.

There is any version in Steam, with any patches and radio stations. You just need to put Dawngraid Patcher.

As I remember now, that I was working on in the summer and spent everything accumulated on PS3 and on a disk with a game in 2008-2009 (the computer was at the level of potatoes, and that it was better to find out on the Xbox360).
It was a brain removal and eager for the fact that it was a real pancake of non -stagen. Animation Euphoria, all sorts of little things in the game, a detailed city, a serious plot, etc.D. Unfortunately, the five did not pass such a test for me and was an evolution, not a revolution.
Now, after a thousand of a watch, I have a couple of assemblies with the most necessary mods, but for some reason there is no desire to play with ENB. In 4K-5k goes well enough (if you still put DXVK).I launched even in 10k for the sake of jokes and if not for the textures, then no remasters need.
Who wants to play now and not to install much, put it: put it:
Download patch with a fresh version of Steam up to
Fusion Fix (or Zolika Patch)
And for Visualiv or Sweet Autumn visual.
As a result, you will receive a good enough expire with a minimum of the spent forces.
We will not see a remister or remake in the near future. I think if they would do it an update the game on Rage, but they did not allow left -wing people such as crooked Grove Street Games to this engine.

Here, the person made a cool selection. What do you think?

Good selection, there is just what I said. You can add here from Visualiv in the Bonuses mod on More Peds and Cars, install Realsitic Driving and Flying, Cge Shadow Fix, Project Birds, Liberty Rush and HD Metallic Car Paint and get good assembly.
Further it will be possible to taste scripts.
He tested these mods on patches – works well.

There is one point in this assembly.

What to do with the file "scripts"? It has no expansion and does not allow you to create a folder with the same name.

And why should you use exactly 0.7th version?

Honestly, this assembly did not download this xs, but these are most likely scripts that need to be placed in the Scripts folder in the game directory (there should be files with NET extension.DLL), and files with .ASI scripts in the folder itself with the game where an exoshnik but you need ASI Loader.
From personal experience,.0.7.0 or, but usually I have everything worked, I and put it. For ENB mods, as a rule, in general, patch is needed (there were many suitable ENB on it at one time).

I was just surprised when I could not create a Scripts folder, due to the presence of a file with a similar name.

In general, thanks for the help, more or less became clear.

The first game that forced to change the system and demanded 3 accounts (MC+XB+SC) and a disk disk, after the purchase I was able to play only for 4 days, after 3 days of suffering. At the exit there was a very poor optimization of 15-20 FPS, but this did not interfere with enjoying the game, later and the optimization was corrected. At that time there was a computer with an Intel Pentium processor with one core and two flows for 3.6 GHz, DDR operational 2 on 2 gigs, and Vidyuha Nvidia 8600 GT for 512 megabytes, at time was time. The last normal patch for the English -language version of the game was released with the release of additions, everything that came out later – spoiled the game.

Yeah, time is mercilessly running. I still remember how I bought a disk, a long installation, then I remember that the game was not preserved, I read on the Internet that you need to create an autonomous profile in the Games for Windows Live app, then attempts to roll patches, patches were put, but fresh grunts on the pirate were more often with "drunk camera. Attempts to somehow improve the optimization of the game.
I have not played for a long time, I should go again, besides, maybe on another PC game will work better. And the episodes generally passed by me.

Good game. At one time after San Andreas, he spat, but recruiting in 2020 he realized that the game was wonderful. Especially now when you see GTA Online.

Oh, these brown tones in all games of those years. Something was even in this.

What is the cada there remaster.

On consoles it was better optimized than on a PC)

If only on Xbox 360, on PS3 soap and resolution below 720p

Physics of machines is many times better than in 5-ke

The best part of GTA.

Then this is how GTA can be described each part)

Immediately visible – did not play.

Che, fan of San Andreas?! You can immediately see you per kilometer)

Firstly, this person completely edited his comment, and the meaning there was completely different, and secondly, where do you come from with your stupid conclusions from the ceiling?

Firstly, what he did there on the drum there, I will not comment on it, but you,
Secondly, the fanatics of San Andreas do not recognize the rest .Well, if you look at posts in the form that are now, then you seem to deny that the best part.

I love this part because of my straightforwardness. We are shown close to the whole world of criminal, namely the fact that Happy Enda will not be after contact with crime. If in the past parts, we obviously won and became essentially the master of the state, then here you are in any case lose your loved one and sacrifice to many. True, GTA 4 has two main disadvantages for me: 1st – Perekalova was not open enough to be the main villain. He appears only in a few missions or by phone, and shows the functions of the chapter only in the end of the transaction, there he was revealed in full
2nd-the ending of revenge does not make sense due to Kate. For some reason, they kill her, although in fact she does not need despite the words of Nico and his attachment to her, she is not even our girlfriend, but a maximum best friend.

In any case, I love GTA 4 and every year I pass it with episodes. I hope GTA 6 will also have many adult moments in the plot

Standing series !Not long ago again began to go through a new one, there is such that it catches in it .Below and so much wrote, and I agree with them .I like it more in the fourth this is the physics of cars!When the fifth began to play in the first, for me there was a shock, as they cut the physics of cars .In general, the four turned out to be standing, despite her nuances .

Eh what is all the same who is awesome by his atmosphere and elaboration, especially released after some 4 years and what a breakthrough was hellish, in the schedule, physics after San Andreas, and the atmosphere is what a pancake wooh. Alas, the game became history, and America presented in the game at that time left. Crises, Svmisis of the agenda and others, killed nafig. At that time, I directly dreamed of giving a walk along New York, feel the atmosphere. Now there is no mention of such. I write not from what is better or worse somewhere, but I just share my sad moment of thought and memory.

Also, at one time, he succumbed to the spirit of the manufacturing of the game and the new at that time Xbox360 and PS3.
And as a result, when he himself played was disappointed that the missions are boring and for such a detailed city there are so few shops and activities outside the missions. The game is very languidly uses the potential of the engine.

The same part with which I was fucked up by physics and damage to the machines (from the 5th I also fucked up, but on the contrary, what poppy it turned out with wooden cars).
The plot in GTA IV reminded something of the mafia that only added a plus to a common piggy bank of the game.
The best part in the series in my opinion, it has just been a pity for the crookedness of the developers a little overshadowed the impressions of the port, however, those problems that the players experienced then with GTA IV will not be compared with the current games of the games and their problems at the start.

Thanks to this game for childhood, thanks to Rockstar North

-"Keni! Keni! Luke that garage. "

-"Oh, b *** b, everything is gone, fire, b **** b, everything went to ***!"

Wool gut, sorry when porting on the bakery have been diverted with optimizon, since right now it is much better played.

Gorgeous game! I really like car physics here.
It is a pity that in 5 parts physics was simplified to boredom and yawning..
Recently re -re -recused and passed from start to final.
Enjoyed trips around the city by different transport. 🙂

I remember the day of the first purchase of a pirate disk, as if it were yesterday. Then there was another one, and yet, because of the new fashion cursors that I downloaded from the gambling, the installation broke, turning off the unpacking when hovering, then this same installation freezed. Everything thought that the problem was just with the discs themselves, but in no case that there was no SP 3, and there was a cut Nvidia GeForce 7300, which by default could no longer export such a non -export. I remember how Vidyakha was updated, I came to visit, and we waited all day while this shit was installed, and it was installed only when it was time to go home, and I played from the strength of 2 minutes 2. Then buying a new Vidyakha in a couple of years..Oh, what a fool I was, hoping that the problem was only in Vidaha, but I already managed to play with the roads that were not loading, ritting with the frizes of my cousin Roman (in the pirate he was a Catholic, and I caught a pair of lulz with the signs) under the incendiary) Track Ruslana. After a couple of years in my life, after active work in the summer, I prompting my computer, but as it turned out later, a couple of years ago. Games from the exit of GTA IV went evenly, but now the new ones at that time on medium and some creaks, but went. I downloaded a steep turnip with a rutor with a tablet from the raisor, and entered the game whole..God, it was fine..I am writing, and tears are welling. I went through it all. The game left a lot of impressions. After it, I began to be interested in conflicts in the Balkans, the collapse of Yugoslavia (and they also say that Igor-Glorokha!!eleven!!1. ), I remember even at school I prepared reports on this topic, and all thanks to a cool plot that is spinning around the mental torment of Nico, based on PTSR, describing the scenes of war from his words. On my not -strong spiritual way, at the very end of Pubertat, there was a difficult story of a man who wanted to find peace of mind, and even having committed revenge, he did not acquire either his or a new meaning of life, but secured this state of loss in the world where he could and could and The horizon for the protagonist began to appear, in an attempt to start a new life after cleansing the past, the loss of a person close to him. Even then, being in such a young and tender, according to adults, it was difficult to make a decision about the fate of Plaiboy and Dwayne, and how to correctly decide the fate of Darko Brevich, for the sake of revenge, our hero has done such a long way. Depending on the final credits, you feel devastated. 15 years have passed, a fifth part was released, news about the sixth, but the atmosphere of gloomy, faded because of the flower man, a city specially adjusted for the non-ethnic plot, and a very, very adult plot without any friction, where black humor with shares of local moronism pro "White bears and pope of the Roman, merging in the forest", It has the form of black humor with such an incredible share of cynicism, the futility of being, where the graphic component at the time of exit, to this day, is innovative, and for modern games, also exemplary, to some extent, it can be said with confidence that The game is far determined by its time, and for a dozen years it still has a handicap, to remain the best game in the Great Auto series to steal.
Verdict: eleven Balabanov’s film adaptation of Balabanov about a brother from Serbia to America from 10
Dobro došao kuageri, niko
P.S. Thanks to everyone who reads, I tried

But we are the same time.

How I love this part

I have been playing for a couple of weeks.

Fatger repack with volcano and bug correction. Pure pleasure. (Maybe I got something with the settings, or maybe something else, but it happens that I will start a mission and there is a departure. Restart and all the norms. But..)
