The characters' hands...

Recommended Posts

Did anyone notice that the characters in this game actually have fingers? The GTA games released before this had their fingers stuck together. Is this the first game to actually have the characters with fingers?

It was released in 2006. Maybe it was the first game with fingers that weren't togheter.

Well, the Xbox versions of III, VC, and SA had fingers for the characters, IIRC.

Yeah. I didn't notice when I first played the game, but when I was halfway done with the storyline, I took a closer look and saw that there were actually fingers on the characters' hands and they weren't stuck together.

Yeah, definitely, up until 2006 people could make beautiful landscapes, detailed clothing, faces, cars, etc, but not fingers..? :p

Before '06 everyone's hands looked like shovels to me. :p

Obviously the reason for this is because in the GTA universe there was chemical testing in the early 1900's that cause a virus for peope to be born without fingers, and strange nub hands. Thankfully the bomb on the bridge in GTA III released a chemical to counter-balance it and people's fingers started growing back.

For a 2006 game, it's correct.

Half Life 2 was released in 2004. GTAs stood back with cartoonish graphics but more features (SA). The rest were just spin off to keep fans entertained and make money from Sony while they were developing IV.

No, it wasn't a huge accomplishment to have modeled fingers back then.

Hell, Max Payne 2 had detailed hands, and, it was released in 2003.

They wanted GTA to run on most of the PCs. Even on low-end ones, for that period.

They were aware of it too...I read somewhere that they described it as a deformed lobster claw...

Actually looks like R* did notice the problem with the character's hands before GTA SA, hence why some pedestrians have separated fingers with some animations.

Cool find. I never paid attention to this in VCS, but did remember the way the characters' fingers looked like a frog's toes back in San Andreas, and just assumed that took place in the whole GTA III era.

I've just been playing Vice City on the PS2, and am majorly freaked out at how poorly-modeled the hands in cutscenes are, almost like mittens. That aside, I'm pretty sure LCS had modeled fingers as well.

A little off-topic here, but...

Some guys in GTA III cutscenes didn't have faces.

San Andreas was, but in LCS they had to downgrade the graphics so it would be compatible with the PSP

Impressive isn't it? Consider that a PSP has less power than a PS2. At that point though the developers had enough experience to take advantage of the hardware better.

III and VC on Xbox did have more detailed models due to Xbox's raw power.

The graphics were actually better like the realistic reflection on cars and weapons At least the index fingers are seperated

VCS Cutscenes had these seperated fingers if you look at the soldier mission
