Would the story make sense? Would you miss on something?

  • I haven't played any of the GTA games, but I'm 100% confident in saying "Yes, you can play GTA5 without playing GTA4", because I don't think the games have any connecting story.

  • The only things I could think of are minor eastereggs and references to the previous games. Usually GTA games have completely individual stories.

  • Yes. GTA5 does not require GTA4 for installment. Also the story does not build upon GTA4

The stories of GTAV and GTAIV are entirely separate. You can play either without the other and the story will make sense.

    There are a few very minor references and nods to previous games, but you are not missing anything significant if you start with 5.
