GTA4: the comic book?


Recommended Posts

I doubt R* would license out the GTA property to comic book houses (maybe they have, I dunno), but I was trolling through some of the screen shots and something about the look of the game settled with me. I'm not sure if this has been brought up before, but I finally realized that the style I couldn't really put a finger on was that of a graphic novel.

You can see that the image in frames such as

this one

look very blurred and yet feature high-contrast lighting. It looks very much like a frame out of the "live-action" comicbook cutscenes for Max Payne, except in motion!

What do you guys think?

What do you mean? You don't think that it was an intentional choice? Or you don't think it looks like a graphic novel.

Regardless, there is something stylistically hyperbollic about the graphics. The way that the image bleeds adds a cool film noir feeling to the game.

Anyone? dontgetit.gif

The Special Editions of the game come with 'The Grand Theft Auto IV Art Book' i guess we'll have to wait and see what they have in store for that?
