One time, I went to my friend's house and saw him playing Grand Theft Auto 4 on PC. Can you do that? I tried downloading it on PC but they said on Google that Grand Theft Auto 4 can be only played on XBOX. Is that true?

Your way of Googling is odd. When I google 'GTA 4 PC' I get a hit from Wikipedia, and the rest of the result list is filled with shops selling GTA 4 for PC. Plus when I hover over your grand-theft-auto-4 tag, I see it's available for PC. The reason you obtain downvotes is the obvious lack of research effort in your question. –  Joetjah Oct 8 '13 at 8:56
I went to my friend's house and saw him playing Grand Theft Auto 4 on PC. Okay, fair enough. Can you do that? - what, can you do that thing that you saw? –  Archer Oct 8 '13 at 10:28
Are you sure you are asking about GTA 4? GTA 5 is the newest game in the series and it is not on PC currently. GTA 4 has been on PC for a long time now. –  Useless Code Oct 9 '13 at 14:18

I got the whole series for a couple of dollars on steam. Forgot if it was 3th party bundle or a steam one. Nevertheless i would wait for another bundle or deal. –  Menno Gouw Oct 8 '13 at 7:29
I bought GTA 4 on PC and I must say I'm not too happy about it. Don't get me wrong; I used to play it on my Xbox 360 and enjoyed it a lot, then I decided to buy it for PC on Steam as I've sold my 360 quite a while ago. The game's framerate is shockingly low for running on an i7 3770K & GTX 680 even with minimum settings and SD resolution. Add to it the fact that you need Steam and GFWL to play and Rockstar Social Club if you want to go multiplayer, needless to say: We were not amused. –  Nolonar Oct 8 '13 at 17:19
