Well have you had any history with the previous games in either the Devil May Cry or Grand Theft Auto series? If you have, I'd go with whatever you prefered when playing them. I personally haven't played any of the DMC games and am a huge fan of the GTA series. GTA IV is great, but its severely lacking in some aspects. Think, GTA 3 with a face lift.

pretty much agree with jtickner1, GTA IV is probably still more fun than DMC 4 unless you're a die hard DMC fan.

Yeah. If you are really hardcore into past DMC games - then get DMC4.

Otherwise GTA4 is a great game too. (MGS4 pwns them all)

dmc i'd only recomend if your a real big fan of the series but it's still not great but it's good,
your not missing much, it dosnt bring much new to the series of dmc.
gta iv re-creates the gta franchise in a good way altogh a few people didnt like it.

get GTA4, DMC4 was a total let down. Only get it if you are a big fan of the series and even then you may not like it.

Well, I've only played DMC4, and I'm going to say GTAIV because from what I've seen of it, it is quite a lot better than DMC4

Not to say DMC4 is bad, it's a great game but it doesn't quite compare

The fanboys will be going OMG U FOOL GTA 4 LOL.
But, nah, unless you're a big fan of the older games. (Your sanity is in question if you are.)
I'd go DMC, it's way more fun...
Even though, in my opinion, neither game is great...

GTA4 is an amazing gaming experience. Theres so much to it. Only thing bad I have to say about GTA4 is that im at a helicopter mission i cant get past and its soooo damn frustrating. Overall GTA is super unbelievable and alot of replay/screw around value to it.

GTA4 hands down...if there is a person that would honestly choose DMC4 over GTA4, there is something wrong with them...

You will probably get more game time with GTAIV than DMC4. Also there is online and that's always nice to have in a game.

I'd go with GTA4, i'm a huge DMC fan aswell but DMC4 doesn't feel like a proper next gen experience. It's just a continuation of an awesome formula, but nothing about it feels particulalry new, unlike GTA4 which is a complete revamp

I recon you would have to be a pretty big  DMC fan to prefer it to GTA 4.

But it still comes down to personal preference.

They both are very repetitive and for me, get boring rather quickly. I did beat DMC4 and it was nothing special. GTA 4 is an awesome game but I just got bored of it to quickly.

GTA 4 and there isn't even a debate. My friend who is a devoted DMC fan, wasn't even able to get halfway through DMC 4, whereas GTA 4 is one of the greatest games of all time, in both of our opinions. GTA 4 is more than just a game, just read any of these user reviews to get a sense of what you are in store for, if you buy GTA 4.

Definitely, Grand Theft Auto IV is simply a much better game than Devil May Cry 4.

depends which genre you like.. Although if you're fan of gaming in general, and not a particular genre, I'd go with GTA, as it's a way, waaay longer game.

DMC4 was so disappointing. I loved all the past games in the series.

GTAIV was also disappointing, but still more enjoyable than DMC4. With a lot more replay value too.

I liked GTAIV better. When I had to switch to Dante after playing with Nero the game just lost my interest...but it's still a great game.

Between those two I'd say GTA4 because there's more to do.  DMC4 is great, but even though it has plenty of replay value, GTA4 still stands heads and shoulders above in terms of content.
