I understand that side quests are a major factor in GTA - since It's a really big game -, but my god, why are so many deviating from the main story?

I got hooked by the premise and have played for hours on end just to make progress in what really matters to me, and it's incredibly time-consuming. After the betrayal of Dimitri Rascalov, I feel like most quests lack development. After 20 hours of gameplay, I did myself a favor and quit. Perhaps that's why most people choose to ignore the campaign and do whatever they want, besides following the game's instructions.

Unfortunately, GTA 3, VC, SA, and 4 left me with the same feeling of wasting time. I loved playing them as a child, though.

i was only a child when i played this so i did not shit myself because i was freshly potty trained. However, i gurantee if i or you played through this masterpiece again we'd both shit ourselves. 10/10
I was 14 when this game came out, so i was the exact target audience.  And they definitely hit the target.  Great soundtrack, truly impressive scope (for the time, not at all now), and some great writing for a video game.
Niko Bellic and his cousin Roman, GTA IV is a true masterpiece, great story, graphics, controls, everything but one thing... the PC port, IT SUCKS! a 2008 game cannot be run without slow frames and braking bugs after a thousand updates since then.
9/10 - The first GTA i really finished, really great game, Niko is my favorite GTA protagonist.
