    I don't think it really matter what kind of setup you've got because the port was terrible.

    I have to agree, GTA IV was among the worst pc ports that were ever done.

    I am sure if you boil it all down it comes down to money in some way or another. Not enough funding or efforts or something along those lines.

    A lot of people play GTA games on pc, so I don't see any reason why the devs should failed to do their job well.

    I think PC games require a lot of tuning because they have different configuration to test. So it's better to wait in most of the cases.

    Those sound like a bunch of excuses. If they are not up to the job, then maybe they should outsource the work to people who can.

    It's either that or they don't give a shit, which is even worse.
