Maybe. It is subjective, but this gen I've played numerous open world games that were a heck of a lot better than GTAIV IMO. The game was just too stale and played it way to safe.
Here's hoping Rockstar found a way to impress again. RDR didn't even do it for me, even if I did appreciate the awesome mini-southwest sandbox they gave us. One can only do so many chase and clear the sub-map of enemies missions over and over. They really need to find ways to change up the missions and find new gameplay opportunities in the awesome worlds they build.
