I've never heard a better reason to go console.

Most of the time while I play PC games my girl is watching Lifetime.

I don't really know what people might mean by "bugs". Apart from poor "Alt-Tabing", taking a while for the computer to start functioning after exiting GTA IV and bad performance I can't think of many "bugs". I have not completed the whole game though...

The biggest gripe for me is that it can stutter so much. :/

PC blows it away.
But think about this too: The PC they used in that video is a really high end machine. Compare that to what I have in my sig and you'll notice that I'm not able to run it that smoothly. I'm not complaining, even though I wouldn't mind a little AA and a tad bit better framerate

BTW, when it rains on the game, my FPS drops significantly.

Which is why I put "for people with low fps" at the end.

I don't know if I'm being "srs" about it, I've just seen a lot of people say the game "runs like crap and doesn't even look better than the console version" and this video clearly and obviously shows the PC version looks a whooooole ton better than the console version.

If someone still prefers the 360 version for its actual benefits, like plug n' play or less expense, then I have no problem with that, I buy console games myself a lot of the time.

I personally don't think the graphical improvements over the 360 version are significant enough to warrant the crappy framerates. GTA4 actually doesn't look that good at all, and I'm pretty sure other developers have had way better, more efficient ways of implementing a real world environment like GTA4 without all the heavy memory restrictions.
