Second to last picture isn't good looking. Just look at the grass.

 

The city's graphics look great up close and far away but the countryside graphics only look good far away judging from the pics you shown us.

@Tikhung GTA IV graphics only look good at night.

The Original GTA 4 is sh*t . The mission is boring as f*ck and it is mostly filler mission.There is no fun in GTA 4 because you don't even have the parachute to even start a base jump.

 

Rockstar fixed this in GTA 4 TBOGT.

Odd. Night time is just as stunning for me. Love that bright moon.

 

As for mainstream gamers moving on... To what? It's not like there's a ton of epic games released on a regular basis. We're lucky if we get 2 to 3 great games per year on any platform.

A game doesn't have to be epic in order to be playable. Players will move on to other games once their interest wanes, that's a given.

Eh? Most gamers seem to stick with the few great games they enjoy. They may try others but not with the commitment they seem to find for quality games like V.

I couldn't agree more. I spend all my time in V base jumping! You can't even do yoga in GTA 4, WTF!

GTA IV -> Great story, characters, vibe, city

 

TBoGT -> Worst story, characters, ruined vibe ,ruined city.

 

Overall -> TBoGT ruined more things than it improved. It only added some features, and variety in missions. Other than that suck.

To be honest, GTA 4 ha a much detailed city. You can see props lying even on the streets - a feature removied in GTA 5.

 

The good thing about GTA 5's graphics are the new graphical effects like the much cooler lighting. It fails on Anti-Aliasing and on the LOD part.

 

To be honest, Far Cry 3 makes GTA 5 look like a game from 2006.

Ubisoft did a good job on this, but so did R*. Do you know why?

 

Ubisoft took advantage of the "less objects spawning" characteristic of FC3. It used the HDD more than it uses the RAM. And for that, they've allocated more of the GPU's work to the RAM because it doesn't have to remember a lot of objects 'cause the HDD is already handling that. The only thing that the RAM is handling in Far Cry 3 are the random events and the event nodes.

 

In GTA V's case, this is partially false. GTA V makes the HDD/SSD remember all the "static objects" such as the map and the props - just like Far Cry 3. But, it's VERY RAM-heavy because it has to spawn at least 5 peds EVERY TIME in almost EVERYWHERE in the city. Heck, even in the countryside. Not just peds, but so does the wildlife, the traffic, the AI, and the random events.

 

FC3 spawns much less peds, traffic, and wildlife at the same time, hence it doesn't overload the RAM.

I've only seen one person complain about the graphics on here. Most people here know that GTA V's graphics are amazing.

I don't know where you got the impression that "so many people" dislike the graphics.

They just brag about how it will look beter on a PC and call it sh*tty.

I think the game looks great during the day, but at night it looks a bit ugly.

Have you adjusted the contrast levels correctly and using full range HDMI? That gets rid of the colour banding issues in the night sky that a lot of people have because they skip that part.I don't think I have, but thanks for the tip. Edited by SonOfLiberty

The jaggies and the textures are atrocious.

Still, a great achievement for 8-9 year old consoles.

LOL, that's...just...funny.

 

Jaggies = no AA. Graphics cards settings remedy this. Console limitation people, it's not the game itself.

On the PS3/XBOX 360 it's just ridiculous at how they managed it. The PS4/XBOX 1 and PC version will be upped to higher resolution textures for sure.

The grass textures need to be redone on the next gen/PC version though, because they didn't even attempt on that, probably due to limitations. Maybe up everything in the countryside and boom!

Guys, I really recommand you to read these two articles (if you haven't already). They contain some very interesting details and improvements about GTA V's RAGE engine. It's actually very impressive what R* did pull of with V and make it run on 360/PS3 the way it does.

Graphics are good enough for a Rockstar videogame. People are just looking for more ways to say that GTA V suck and make Rockstar work harder in the next game.

The lighting engine is sublime, and all the game really "needs" for a next-gen upgrade is a steady framerate, 1080p resolution and higher res textures. Everything else is basically there already, just very low-res in some parts.

For an open-world game like GTA 5, the graphics are very top notch, especially for the 360/PS3. However there are a few other games that aren't so "open-world" that do have better graphics, at least in my opinion. One great example is Tomb Raider, those graphics easily beat V's.

You cannot compare open world games directly to linear games. Of course they can have richer visuals, because areas are so much smaller and pretty much everything is pre-determinated.

What does my signature have to do with my post? I didn't said it's colors are bad, opposite i like it, reminds me of Vice City my favorite GTA. But it just doesn't belong to game like IV. It just ruined LC with colors and atmosphere. TBoGT would work better like V's DLC or like new game set in VC than IV's LC.

Only the PC Master Race would whine about the graphics. Since in their fantasy, visuals matter more than the gameplay, story, characters, etc.

Nah, modding matters waaaay more. Graphics in this console rendition aren't bad tbh, so anyone whining is a retard who doesn't understand simple console limitations 101.
