I have not played GTA:IV on PC before, because back when it was initially released it was so horrendously unoptimized you couldn't even joke about it.
Nothing has changed.
This is a shameful mess of a game, so 'extremely' badly ported it makes me want to cry.
-You can't log in to Social most of the time
-Rockstar Social uses a heavily outdated version, for whatever reason
-It uses the unholy GFWL, still
-Crashes and freezes galore
-Locks your graphical settings to lowest possible if your GPU is too strong (not ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ you, there is a community fix tho)
-No AA, at all
-Runs like ♥♥♥♥, even on my 970 FTW edition
-The mouse is choppy and awkward all the time
-Using steam overlay is prone to cause the game to lock up, or simply not let you exit the overlay
-May lock up your entire computer randomly upon booting, forcing you to restart (you can't even kill the process manually)
This is from just, like, an hour of 'playing' the game, too.
It's still fun to play a game I spent countless hours on many years ago at launch with the 360, but god damn it Rockstar, how can you mess up a port this badly?
If you plan to buy this game on PC, prepare to jump through some hoops and facepalm at GFWL, among other things, a lot.
