It's like looking at an alternate reality where... Johnny did copious amounts of pills and bathtub meth prior to the story.

Basically, GTA V. :p

Simple, it was 2008 early new generation, and gta games are developed over span of minimum 4-5 years now (well gta VI more obviously :p) if you look at any gta game from III to V you can see how pederestian models are always lesser quality than the main characters, and the playable ones are always the highiest quality. so most models were developed with less polygons and as years passed most important characters were improved. Same with Gta V , franklin trevor and michael are extremely high quality but some npcs are of lesser quality, the npc in V are highier quality modelwise than IV but that is just technological improvement within generation, expect VI to look better than V

I don't think he's talking about the graphics. I think that he doesn't like European, white men.


Not every character can be a gangster from the ghetto.

motherf*cker that's not what he meant you racist.

Gta4 is not ugly, is as reaslistic as they could make it, which is by far, a LOT.

Go look at the mirror. GTA IV's characters look nice unlike you.

^^^ That doesn't seem like an in-game screenshot, but a pre-rendered still used by the developers during the marketing.

Ugly isn't the right term that I'd use to describe. Almost all the characters appear to me like mannequins in terms of looks and their movements. Sometimes their faces (not in cutscenes, but in game) have weird effects on them. The character models don't look too bad, but indeed lack in quality, in terms of many details seen in other open world games that look incredibly better in comparison.

It is an in-game screenshot, it was taken in the middle park safehouse and it seems like the player was changing Niko's clothes...looks like it is zoomed-in tho.
