What little things have you seen in-game that have impressed you enough to bother to photograph them? This is mine.

I can't believe they've bothered to model the sweep of the wipers. That's insane. Bravo, R*

I can't take a photo but I once saw a man tie his shoe. Whats the point of it? Thats what makes it so realistic when unnecessary things are put into the games.

I never noticed that. Nice. icon14.gif
I don't have a picture, but if you take a convertible
to the car wash, a guy washes the car by hand.
I'd be shocked if 10% of the people would have
found that out on their own (I didn't blush.gif )
But, for those people that do, I imagine they
just shake their head and say "No F ing way".
R* rewards the people that appreciate stuff like that.

When you smash into a wall, it leaves a massive crack. That was pretty cool.

I don't know if anyone has noticed this, but with the cars when you open the door up at a dark time of day, the interior light comes on.

There's alot of cool details in this game, that I've never seen in any other game before.

I love the peds that smoke in their cars and when you jack their car or break a windows a small tuft of smoke comes out of the car.

That happens at any time of the day, but it's still a pretty cool feature.

One of the things i'm always interested in are the blood stains on Niko's or any other peds clothes when shot, you can even see some sort of bullet hole sometimes.

I've also started noticing that when you get shot in certain places, fountains of blood will appear. Niko got shot in the Neck once and blood was pouring out for a good 2 minutes.

Bullet holes are highly detailed and just look awesome.

I like how when you drive through a tunnel, the sound of your engine echoes and reflects your environment.
Also if you fins yourself driving on the beach, and you have a HDTV, go to cinematic view and check out how amazing the sand looks

I was walking by a construction site and there was a guy with a reflective vest and hard hat on holding a sign indicating construction. I also like how when using your phone, if you angle Niko to the side, you can see the screen on it change as you scroll numbers etc

Always the same crack, so there are flaws in there as well.

The blood spurts, on certain bullet hits, I've seen that a few times, luckily doesn't happen all the time!

The audio that was needed for tunnels is what was HIGHLY flawed in GTA3 and after that, it was only marginally improved, but in GTA3, the reverb was plain nasty!

Was just going to say, the rain soaked effects, fire as it leaps toward the sky and billows in smoke, some of the best I've ever seen, PC or console...graphics and for that alone, I love how GTA bashes all comers... It's a long, long way from their so-so graphics going to 3D...there's a lot of future prospect one can really see taking shape.

For one thing, computer graphics in terms of fire and water is not something people pull off easily... on a budget.

You can see a cop searching the boot a some guys car(near the church).The funny thing is the cop doesnt find anything but say something like "I see the tail light broken"(cant really remember what he say but he says something funny)and the guy takes off.I followed that guy for about 4-5 mins.He was driving normally but suddenly started acting weird as if he knew i was tailing him.Then i pulled my car in front his and he came out and started shooting at me. I Nailed that SOB on the spot biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

i think he was a gangster that why the cop was searching his boot.

I like how when you rev the engine, more smoke billows out of the exhaust and i love how the RPG looks when you pull the trigger. inlove.gif

I just started a new game and I only just now noticed the utility men working on various things. It looks crappy, but interesting. Some guy was smacking a light pole with a wrench. Shame they took out the ability to climb them. The little guys just spawn up there.

I like the way people run in the rain. I always hated it other GTAs where it would storm and nobody would react.

A little something that I just recently noticed was that when you take little jacob out to do an activitiy in your own car, as you're driving you'll see the smoke from his weed coming out of the windows. That's Grade-A detail R*!

Well not that I can't really photograph it, but it impressed me nonetheless, if you get a large vehicle in an open place where no peds (Or police!) can see you and you have a helicopter chasing you, as the helicopter sweeps past you can hide behind the vehicle and keep swapping sides everytime it comes past until it the choppers thinks that you must have left the vehicle or something and it leaves to look for you elsewhere. (This works best on that elevated road that has not been completed.)

If you put gta4 in your microwave you can see what looks like lightning and it looks realistic.

I did this with SR and nothing happened. Hmmm...
I've said this before, but it's on of my favorite details.
so I'll say it again. If you give a bum money he will
be your bodyguard against other bums you start
fights with. It's to bad real bums can't play, because
this would definitely be their favorite feature.

If you turn off the music and listen carefully, you can hear the door chime dinging too if the door is open.

I was gonna mention the one with Lil Jacob - Love that one.

Others I have noticed:

Birds Chirping

Leaves fall from trees when you hit them with a car.

When you hit a fire hydrant (with a car) and then try to "play" in the water you stumble around.

The fire truck has 3 different sounds - normal siren, press left thumb for either the fast siren or the trucks horn.

I saw a prostitute proposition a man in a Cavalade the other day, she was dancing around and then hopped in the truck with him.

There are places around the city where a cinematic will show Niko jumping a fence or barrier. If you are flung from a car or jump out of a rapidly moving heli at one of these spots it will trigger the cinematic mode and you will see Niko die in a different view.

As said before, the bullet holes are awesome.

Ahhhhh there are so many, to many to list. smile.gif

I love the way the tires actually go flat and shred, instead of the wheels just "bending" when shot (Vice City, San Andreas). Also the way that the rims leave gouges in the pavement as you drive on them.

Not enough can be said about the amount of detail put into the junker cars. The billowing black smoke from the exhaust, the way the entire cloud lights up when the engine backfires, the rips in the seats, mis-matched body panels and interior trim... fantastic.

If you've ever looked closely at a dirty car, you'll see that the dirt isn't just a shader that add as the car becomes dirty. No, there's actually spots of dirt on the car, very realistic.

Can't forget the way the metallic flake in a clean paint job sparkles in the sun light.

The defroster strips in the back windows of cars is a great touch as well.

How about the way the water from a broken hydrant pushes up a car as it's driving over?

Here's another cool example of detail:
I pulled out my RPG to take out a target during an assassination mission. I fired it, but it bounced off the fender of his car and hit the second story window of a building. The way the car took off when the rocket hit the fender and the way the pedestrians all ducked and then ran away was just so.. action movie.. it was amazing.
