GTA V looks incredible compared to SA. I think it's time people let go of their uber-love for San Andreas. It was great for its time and I had a blast playing it, but that game is obsolete by today's standards. If it were released today it would get horrible ratings/reviews. That's the way technology works. What's amazing one day is crap the next. 10 years from now we'll be looking back and see a horrible game called GTA V and wonder why we ever thought it was that great.

Terrible reviewsjust because the graphics / physics engine? Seriously, so that's what matters for you? GTA IV is a sh*t in terms of gameplay, features, optimization, etc compared to GTA: SA.

There is still thousands of people playing GTA: SA and it's better than GTA IV for many people.

No offense, but graphics and engine are a big part of every game. They create the gameplay itself. Don't be a video game snob and act like they don't matter. They do matter. A lot in fact. If you can't see the good qualities in GTAIV then you need to actually go back to San Andreas and try playing it again because I bet you haven't lately. After playing GTAIV it's just not fun anymore going back to SA. The driving is terrible, the shooting mechanics suck, no real-time car damage, cartoony violence, and it'll make your eyes bleed in the process.

I really don't understand why people defend that game so adamantly. You're looking at it through rose colored lenses if you ask me. I for one am always glad to look forward and see the gameplay evolving.

Sorry but I have been playing GTA: SA since 2005 to 2012 ( http://sa-mp.com/ (53.000 players online at the moment when I write this thread) and http://www.mtasa.com/) (thousands of players online more playing) while I played GTA IV just a month and then it got boring (no, I don't play it).


If you think that the graphics and physics are the important thing about a game then you don't know nothing about the art of games. Why do you think there is still A LOT of RPG 2D games and games, awesome indie games like minecraft or 0x10c and a lot of games that are not photorealistic but epic, like GOTY 2012 (The Walking Dead).

You probably don't know about sa-mp and mta:sa or you are 10 year old so that's why some people here can't appreaciate games like GTA: SA and the games already mentioned.

Tbh, playing SA on my PS2 looked just as good as most of those screens.

The only ones that look better than the actual game imo are:

We'd probably have much different speculations about GTA: San Andreas if this were 2004 and these were real screenshots. Bravo!

Wow.. clever little boy, aren't you? I'm 25 years old, jackass. I appreciate SA for what it was. When I was younger and that was as good as it got, it was a beautiful game. Looking back at it now, it's not so pretty. And like I said, the game's engine and the graphics create the core game itself. The gameplay spawns out of that. In actuality GTAIV created gameplay elements that SA never had or could've hoped to have. If you think it's just the pretty graphics that make GTAIV such a huge leap above SA, then you're sorely mistaken.

You're probably the type of jackass that likes Saints Row 3 over GTAIV. Go ahead, enjoy your mediocrity. I suppose everyone's entitled to their opinions, even idiotic ones.

People base their opinions on San Andreas - purely through the principle of being Nostalgic. Everyone loved 2004 and we all had a great time playing SA in it's day, but the butt f*cking needs to stop now.

Amen. If San Andreas were a person, I bet this is how it would feel. http://www.tubechop.com/watch/1161695

Nice job on the comparisons by the way, I still can't believe how good V looks on current gen. It's crazy. And I love how CJ is just standing there in his normal pose like, "whuddup?"

SA's gameplay sucks compared to IV's. Quality > quantity all day, every day. sh*t, this CTCCoco guy had to mod the f*ck out of SA just to enjoy it, what does that tell you?

Great thread! I'm still impressed with San Andreas. It was such an ambitious game for it's time, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I have spent more time on THAT game, than any other. Replay value for San Andreas was better than GTAIV, but GTAV looks like it's going to smash any other game in terms of hours spent playing. I never thought i'd see a better game than San Andreas, but Rockstar just keeps upping their game.

Why are you assuming that they aren't?

Look at IV/SA pre-release screen shots and then try and find something that you may never have seen in the game.

Granted, the camera angle/situation may have been orchestrated by R*, but I'm yet to see anything which is above and beyond what the series has delivered in the past. So why should I be sceptical of the future?

But you are right that professionals took the photos at the best angle which does make a difference. This page has decent comparisons, not great. But many of the pics on the first page aren't even close to comparable.

Not after playing GTA IV and other games up to date I must be a graphics whore because SA looks terrible now we've such a long ways since 2004.

I play GTA SA more than I play IV

Much funner game even if the graphics are not modern.


I love this thread anyway. Best thread around.
The Vinewood sign is up so high now.

The fire/explosions are worlds apart from SA. Why are people complaining about that.
