I played GTA since the beginning and I was very eager to play GTA IV on the pc. But like a lot of people, GTA IV doesn't run or runs very poorly on the pc. It's the same case with my pc. After 2 hours of installing all the s**t that was needed to run GTA IV, I finally came to launch the game. To my surprise the first time I went to fiddle with some sound controls and graphic controls I freezed, got a blue screen and resetted. After changing drivers (newest) I did come a bit further, I managed to get behind the intro of a "new game". When I drive a few meters, it just either freezes or crashes back to desktop. There's no way I can play it right now. And I seriously hope they will fix this problem cause I don't think it's just me. Why is it that people with low-end pc's can run it extremely good and I got a pretty mid-high end range pc and it just crashes. IMO I bet Rockstar will fix it sooner or later cause if they won't, they lose a lot of fans and reputation. Securom anyone?
(could be me, but didn't GTA III also run like s**t when it first got released? and after some fixes it ran good?)
