Having recently played Red Dead Redemption 2, GTA IV again, the DLC, Red Dead 1 again, I can't help but feel that GTA V's main story is a little short?

Red Dead Redemption 1 was probably shorter, actually, but for a GTA game, I feel like IV was way way bigger. Sure, GTA V has more strangers and freaks and things like that to do, which is great, but in terms of pure main story, it felt shorter.

Now GTA IV of course could be argued had much more repetitive quests, which, it probably did. But I dunno, I still felt disappointed. I've completed the game again in just a week.

It definitely seemed shorter than IV, but I think - and this is just my opinion - RockStar was more concerned with the online aspect than the single player story.  But even for what it was, it was enjoyable.  I mean, even single player felt more like an excuse to do random shit than having a character arc.
