I think these make for a better comparison. Sorry for the massive size but look how similar they are:

Edit: Yeah, they're a bit too big. Better just link them.

GTA V looks immensely better really.

I always said PS3 had more power. I was right

 

flame me PC fanboys.

Are you comparing power of the PS3 to the PC, or are you just saying that the PS3 has more power left in it? Because that makes quite a difference, if the first is true, you're ill-informed and I can present some arguments for that (which I'm not gonna do now because I'm not sure if it's necessary), if the second is the case you're right. Developers can squeeze more out of hardware by thoroughly optimising games.

All the PC fanboys said PS3 didn't have no power left in it. So comparing GTA V to GTA IV PC shows us that the PS3 still has power that developers haven't reached yet.

To be fair, the console version isn't going to look exactly like those screenshots either. The IGN preview said the game didn't look as nice as it does in trailers/screenshots.

Yeah, and you go and listen to IGN, who always say SOMETHING negative about GTA. CVG and all the other gaming sites said its stunning. Maybe not EXACTLY like the screens, but close. It's been 5 years since IV, so there isn't any need to worry. This doesn't make sense anyway, we are still 4 months away from release.

And RDR doesn't look as good as that screenshot I posted above. As long as V looks as good, or hopefully slightly better than what I saw playing RDR on my Xbox, I'll be a very happy man.

PC hasn't been announced, it's impossible to show on PC. I know you are mad, but it will take some time getting used to the fact that it's shown on consoles.

Psychotic Mind
If you take GTA IV and add better (HD) textures and a good enb series mod in 1080p on pc it absolutely crushes the screen's we seen so far from GTA V, its simply like that, literally i haven't seen any game (besides crysis 3 which is next gen) which looks better than GTA IV when you get it to its maximums, there are many screenshots of GTA IV where you can't say if its a real picture or a game, if anyone thinks otherwise i would be more than happy to prove them wrong with comparison

Actually, ENB looks like garbage on GTA 4. I honestly hate those people who think it looks better, and it doesn't. The colours just get brighter and there is more reflection and bloom. And most texture packs are ugly as well. GTA 5 is a mile ahead of what GTA 4 has, period.

BS, enb (and all enb like mods) only looks ugly if you use one of the defaults settings for them, if you take your time to find the enb that suits your pc and take additional time to tweak it yourself you can achieve photorealism (yes) at reasonable frame rates (i get around 80 fps usually, in tense situations it drops to ~60 but never bellow 50 fps), enb does much more than just brighten up your screen and reflection if you know what you are doing and calling it like you did is just an insult to people who spend hours tweaking their GTA to achieve superb graphics, also i agree that most texture packs are ugly as hell, but if you take a look a pack made by someone who knows what they are doing (dkt70 and lord neophyte are my favorite ones) you will get textures that are so much bigger and better than the default ones, lastly here are some half assed screenshots of comparison that i took some time ago with my old rig now it looks better, if you insist i can fire up my game now and make even better ones to show that IV (currently) smashes V in terms of graphics

Haha, I'm sorry but that looks terrible. Everything is washed out, the pedestrians and cars look out of place, the textures look very simple; worse than the default, the colors pop out - and not in a good way. To me, ENB will always just be "bloom + drive-able mirrors = super graphics." All this "improved lighting" and extra effects is complete crap, it may make it look a bit better, but it's still bad looking.

 

You still have 2008 textures and you still have 2008 models. There's more to it than crappy effects that you inject into your game.

you dont have the same textures because you would download a HD texture pack which in some cases are 100 times bigger than the regular ones, also if you insist you can download higher poly models for cars/character etc, but the difference in models isn't that noticable between 2008 models and the ones we have today to the human eye there isn't a big difference between a model that has 6000 polygons and the one that has 60000, also if you still think its just bloom+drivable mirrors take a look at the screenshots in this article for example and say that again Are These Real Photos or GTA IV Screenshots?

Yeah i'm sorry that just looks awful. I mean, the colors are all weird and they don't look good at all. The textures are still crap and everything just looks dated. I take it as an insult to GTA 5 by saying those screenshots look better. Accept it, ENB sucks. And the only good ICENHANCER is 1.2. GTA 5 wins, even with graphics mods on GTA 4.

I guess no one downloaded 2.1..

IDK about you guys, but these 2006* textures don't look so bad to me.

Drain pipes in this pic honestly looked as if somone had smeared their sh*tty ass up against it. But yeah, goes to show that maybe it paid off for them to take a little extra time with V to "polish" it. If they had released V last year or this spring we might have been playing a very different looking game. The 2006 photos looks like a cartoony version of IV.

Are you high?

Because I was clearly talking about:

 

PC GTA IV In game shots VS Bullshots of GTA V that will look nothing like how it'll look on launch.

My bad. I got confused from reading it to quick. I was just about to post that, but i read it again and felt very awkward blush.gif

The screenshots look all nice but I don't like a few things in the first one; the vegetation looks terrible and some buildings are a bit too colourful. But all in all, it looks nice indeed!

Agreed, it's definitely over-saturated, which quite frankly ruins "that realistic look" which is the purpose for the creation of ENB. I really like the road textures though, sibs perhaps you can post/PM a link?

i don't see the hype for "icenhancer"

 

it's just a overglorified enb series config yet people treat it like it is more

Well if people actually paid attention to detail (or just fixed their monitors) icenhancer can look very nice. For example, it is one of the only ENB's to use a bumpmap texture which makes the textures "stand out" if you will.

I agree. As long as V looks as good as IV, I'll be a very happy man. It's all the new features and big map that has me excited for V, not the graphics.

yep, it's too bad icenhancer gets so much attention when there's far nicer looking ENB configs out there.

The only good use iCEnhancer has is for showing off that your PC can run it.

 

Yeah, everything with iCEnhancer looks great...until some f*cking pedestrians walk into frame.

nice job bro, it seems you put lots of effort in it,

only tough, you cant compare ingame footage with a screenshot made on a pc by rockstar, ofcourse the gta V screenshot looks better cause it aint ingame, but GtaV is going to be awesome, only hope they fixed the texture pop in a bit.

 

GREAT JOB! biggrin.gif

GTA V still seems to look a bit better, due to the better lighting system

Well yea, and the better player models, the better particle effects and the better shaders.

I have yet to see a game that looks better than Modded GTA IV.

With the exception of Crysis 3 of course.

This one is just the player merged into a real life picture. Because I just saw some Crysis 3 gameplay and some with graphic mods, and everytime he was close to leafes it looked flat and textured..

 

So yeah..

This is just a small taste of it, you can find plenty more videos and you can download the mod from that link.

 

And this is not even with Crysis 3, they are even more amazing. So don't get so surprised, with the right textures and work a game can be almost like real life.

 

And here's a longer video, but this guy abused in the contrast and saturation, but that can be tweaked:
