It wasn't a terrible game. 10/10, GOTY, and every problem just brushed under the rug and ignored? NO way.
For the record I do think technically GTAV is already looking much, much better than IV. There's is already a lot more value in there compared to IV as well from reports and what we have seen. It also sounds like online no longer is tacked on (GTAIV) and sounds better through out (RDR).
That said, we've only seen 15-25 seconds or so of actual gameplay in all the trailers (we've seen mostly cinematic and cinematic/scripted recorded gameplay). Does it even matter? Probably not, this is going to easily sell 15 million copies by EOL.
Still, I don't appreciate places that purport to be objective journalists just feeding the payola down our throats to garner access and ad revenue. I mean, have you read some of the crockery IGN is already writing (assuming they wrote it at all)? It's embarrassing.
