Feast Your Eyes On the Glorious Scenery of Grand Theft Auto V

Strazdas:

I mean making the graphics require less resources to run the same. you know, the meaning of world optimization. the amount of resources versus the amount of graphic we had in GTA 4 was very poor.

Oh right, I see what you mean.

Sadly, yes. And badly ported controls. I want controls to be well ported or made for PC (like San Andreas had).

Hopefully, Rockstar will make a better port than GTA IV, if the demand is high enough, hopefully, they will put effort into the controls.

The game ran. well, it hasnt crashed on me so theres that, but it seemt that they put all effort into graphics and physics (i like physics, but they are demanding thing even for modern PCs) and not into making game more functional. you had less costumization, less choices, less actions and game overall felt much more restricted. when you sacrifice gameplay to cram in more graphics its bad.

I was bothered by how you couldn't buy houses anymore and that you had very limited clothing options. There was plenty of good stuff, the in-game internet is hilarious, hanging out with friends (although it could get annoying at times) Different ways to make money, second most missions in the series, decently sized map, refined controls. But it was missing some things that made San Andreas great.

No, scarp that, it did crash on me multiple times, but it was the fault of Games for Windows live though not the games itself.

Yeah, Games For Windows Live needs to die in a hole.

Fanboying SO HARD RIGHT NOW. /hearteyes

People still complaining that GTA 4 was 'too serious', 'boring', or whatever else, please stop. That game was incredible and this one is looking to be even better.

Pinkamena:
Is it just me, or do the graphics look quite shit?

O.o I have never seen a game look prettier than this in my whole life, what are you comparing it to to think it looks shit?

I mean, look at the screenshots. They remind me of a elder scrolls/fallout game. Nevermind, I'm probably just spoiled by PC graphics >_>

EDIT: And what do I have to compare them to? Oh Idunno, every notable game being released the last few years.

Yeah, that's the first thing that came to my head. If I had nothing to read and just had to guess which new big release this was going to be, I doubt I would get it right. I really would love to see more interesting styles and designs than the same looking 3D engine over and over.

Also, nothing for the PC, so I can't get it either way until someone does it for them. Jerks.

Whoa, WiiU up for concideration!
Apparently Nintendo have done something right in the WiiU since games are being ported from left and right.
Sounds/looks pretty promising.

I hate the way Elder Scrolls games look but this has some of the best graphics I've seen so I dunno what you mean. Looks better than any PC game I'm aware of too.

Allow me to show you something.

Compare this screenshot:

To these:

I'll be the first to say that graphics are not important, but don't tell me that this grand theft auto game "looks better than any PC game I'm aware of". Because honestly, it looks as if it belongs in 2006.

... it looks exactly like GTA IV.

Graphically not impressive, looks to similar to GTA IV. Don't they have the new PS4 and 720 to work with? Does this mean that graphics isn't their priority and they might be putting more effort into the world not being so stale.

I think I just really like the graphical style of Rockstar games (this gen), because while I'm sure those graphics are more technically impressive, they just don't look as good to me. Also you can't jump straight from 'worse-looking than Crysis 3, acknowledged to be one of the best-looking games ever made' to 'belongs in 2006'.

Side-note: for whatever reason this game also looks a hell of a lot better in motion to me, so these screenshots (pretty as I find them) might not be doing it justice.

Well, if you simply like it better, then I have no qualms with that. Personal taste and all that. And I picked Crysis 3 and Metro 2033 (both have incredibly impressive graphics) to really drive in the point that no, GTA 5 does in fact not have better graphics than any PC game you've seen.

But enough with this discussion.

"Pretty but empty" eh? Sounds like it really is shaping up to be a true sequel to GTA IV then.

I am not hopeful for a timely P.C release. Anti Aliasing seems to be a concept not in Rockstar's wheelhouse. I suppose they could use the same mud/blur filter GTA4 had.
