Something about playing GTAO at night feels right, especially during the later hours (real-time).

I don't like sitting down at 11PM at my home and it's 10AM in-game and sunny.

However, there's definitely a better visual advantage to playing in the daylight hours, in-game.
Details look more vivid, cars look amazing, and even the NPCs have a better zip to their behavior.

But what's your preference? All day or all of the night? Just more curiosity, from your's truly! Cheers! ;)

It should be like burnout paradise with the real time setting. The game time matches with your real time zone. So morning will be as long as in irl and so on.

Dark of the night because the city looks more bad ass during the night rather than the day. We get to do crime way better in the dark cause we hide in the cracks of the streets, buildings, houses, woods, sandy shores, mountain tops, the sea, the carnival and last the airport while trying to wait for our enemies to make one false step. Driving around the city and the woods are more epic in the dark time. The lights in the buildings, street lights, and car lights make everything more alive and well.

Tough one. In real time, I'm normally on from about 9:30pm till 3am. So night time in game feels more natural to me. But, I like to flaunt my vehicles on a regular basis so daylight is good too.

 

Depends on where you are in game too.

Grand Senora Desert or Raton Canyon during the day works.

Paleto forest at night.

Anywhere in LS looks great at night too.

You can take some nice pics during the day, but the city feels better at night. Although I like some areas more during the day like the area around Franklin's Aunt's house.

 

So I chose option 3, cause you really got me.

Love them both! I kind of like night a little better, not totally dark, but twilight. Twilight is my favorite time in GTA and IRL

night. makes for a darker and more fearful gameplay. just imagine walking in the hood at night with no one around. creepy.

 

oh and also the graphics look better. you cant see all the little details and imperfections like you can during the day.

I prefer daytime because of how beautiful Los Santos is, but the city lit up at night is awesome from the observatory

Nothing does a sunrise or sunset like GTA V. Great photography time.

Night Time is the right time.

 

"So there it goes

Sun's sinkin' down

It's gettin' dark

 

Colors are fading fast

Night covers the sun and leaves no mark"

 

Having said that, the daylight has wonderful clarity and depth, so I'm down with both. :)

So when you're playing with someone from a different time zone, what then?

 

This game looks gorgeous, day or night.

The games at its most beautiful when the suns going down or coming up so somewhere in between :p

 

Cruising around the country etc is better at night or around sunset, but pvp battles I prefer in the cold hard light of day

it makes the game feel more realistic when its at night. because most crime happens at night.

IRL time, it would mostly be during the evening after work. In game, I do like the morning sunrise. It's especially peaceful in paleto bay during that time.

But you said walking in the hood at night is creepy, but you also said when no ones around, so you wouldn't have to worry about the crime you just mentioned, :)

Thats a nice idea but impossible to implement with it being a multiplayer game. The only way it would work is if you can only join lobbies with other people in your time zone which would significantly divide the player base.

During the day if I'm driving a topless car around the winery region, at night if I want to commit crime

Nothing can beat the sunset of Paleto Bay. :^:

 

 

 

Also, I love how you name your threads :lol:

Don't like night time very much. Los Santos looks so much better during the day when it's soaked in the sunlight.

Wow, we must be running out of interesting topics for polls.

I try to make my contributions to this community fresh, new, and interesting, avoiding the regurgitation of the same droll threads I see, over and over.

So, yeah, if providing new, undiscussed content on a forum site is considered "running out of interesting topics," then you may be right.

Of course, I have to disagree with you.

 

Respect. ;)

But 24/7 ain't enough

I need another hour and a day

So I can love GTA 25/8, 25/8

Hard to say really, it's impossible to get a good balance of brightness between the day and night in my opinion. You can make it so the daytime looks more true but then night time becomes to bright. If you choose to make the night time look more true, daytime becomes a little gloomy. I will add this though, if you choose to make the night time to look more realistic, it's to dark at times, can't see a thing. I've tried on 3 different TV's but none of them can seem to balance them out correctly.

I like both but i noticed that im changing my PVs depending on the in game time... at day-time im riding the more classy ones... at night my F&F replicas... it's kinda rollplaying not on purpose but somehow by itself ^^

 

Personal i like the night view more... especially if im up in vinewood or at the mountains - the dawn and night view just look badass ^__^

 

For weather i like the thunderstorm one most... sadly i encounter this weather rarely : (
