That parachute shot really shows how far things have come in just 8 years. The irony is GTA 5 will most likely play 95% similar to San Andreas.

Second this. If it does play like SA, then hot damn! (or coffee)

I hope so, the driving mechanics in GTAIV were horrid.

I actually hope it doesn't. I recently played it, and Going back to that dated control scheme after all the progress we've seen in the genre during the years... well, lets just say it wasn't pleasant. I felt as if I'm struggling with the controls and missed so many of the modern concepts I got used to since then. If I could summarize the controls in one word it would be "stiff".

From GTA IV to Just Cause 2 to Saints Row 3 to the recent Sleeping Dogs, I think it's amazing to see how much the mechanics and controls have evolved in less than a decade.

Truly great to see the evolution of this series. This is one of those games to tell everyone about I'm sure it's going to be GOTY quality R* never lets ME down. I'm glad their taking us back to Los Santos again. really glad. San Andreas is one of my top 3 games of all time. But I'm Really surprised that we aren't getting a Vice City this gen. although i don't think Vice City would work as good as it did outside of the 80's theme so if they do a new one in Vice City I think I'd like it to be in the 80's also. I'm sorry i just realized i got way off topic :P Just thinking out loud now.

San Andreas doesn't even look as bad as I thought it would 8 years later. That said, GTA V kills it and looks pretty great.

Yeah seeing those shots of SA kind of make me want to play it again. I genuinely still think it looks great.

Man it would be awesome if they did a hd collection with this engine to celebrate gta V XD
snowman2149  +   1141d ago
Yeah, even better if its for the vita! San Andreas would look stunning with HD visuals on the vita's screen..

So GTA V takes place in Los Santos?
turgore  +   1141d ago
Too bad rockstar got too lazy to create new cities for GTA games and instead they just remake the old ones.
yeahokchief  +   1140d ago
LAZY?? do you realize how long this game has probably been in development?? they innovate more than any other developer i can think of.

has nothing to do with lazyness ... but since they had to remake allt he assets for this city .. odnt see no reason why they couldnt choose another city
Clarence  +   1141d ago
This looks like the GTA game that we should have had the first time around.
YodaCracker  +   1140d ago
This was not possible on the PS1.
ahamling27  +   1140d ago
Err, you mean PS2? The PS1 games were 2D and had a top down perspective...
PersonMan  +   1140d ago
I hope they keep the driving mechanics of GTA IV. I don't want it to feel like an arcade game. I want to feel like I'm actually driving a weighted car. Saints Row bothered me with how the driving just didn't feel right.
