GTA IV has a good atmospheric feel as you're just walking around but the NPCs (outside of the main characters - nico's cousin etc) are just well executed scenery. They generate randomly and generally just dislike you/fear you. To be critical of GTA IV further, I feel the main characters were padded out with cut scenes - I don't feel making a movie counts as NPC interaction.

However, GTA IV NPC physical movement is somewhat better than Oblivion.
