GTA IV as a First Person Shooter

52 second read


Grand Theft Auto 4 was, putting it mildly,  not my favourite game. While the level of detail in the city was mind-blowing, the change in tone and needless social interactions made the game nigh unplayable for me.

First-person shooters, likewise, are not amongst my favourite games, probably a result of being an active gamer during the FPS blow-out in the mid 90’s. Somehow though, the combination of both seems better – and something I might be inclined to play – even if just for the digital tourism -  if my PC wouldn’t melt and buckle under the strain of running this GTA IV FPS Mod.

After the jump you’ll find a video of GTA IV in the first-person perspective – and the level of detail in the city, always the game’s most incredible feature, is made all the more striking. Instructions for how to install the mod yourself are available on the video’s Youtube page.

    Its amazing how real the city feels 3rd person vs 1st person. Its almost like a tech demo until he starts shooting!

    I love all things GTA so maybe I’m biased.

    It really amazes me at how much more you appreciate the sheer scale of the city when you are in first person

    You also notice a lot more of the detail it seems. I’ve never seen that guy selling his paintings in the game. I hope rockstar takes note and adds a first person view in their next GTA game.
