Could GTA V be the prettiest game ever?

From the water effects, dust effects and other technical elements to the sheer beauty of the art style - GTA V looks to redefine how good games can look. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

I dunno, I'm still gunning for Red Dead Redemption, regardless of it coming out two years ago. Perhaps that's just the arthouse student in me that loves a beautiful western landscape. Either way, I'm looking forward to GTAV, even though I despised GTAIV.

Pretty? This is GTA not my little pony

aside from gta's adult content and strong language, GTA is also known for it's beautiful breathtaking scenes, remember how beautiful and gorgeous not from a technical standpoint, the beach, dias's castle, it's tropical and stunning, remember how peaceful and beautiful the country side felt in san andrease, especially at a foggy or a rainy night, look at gta 4, it has some breathtaking places, rainy weather at night listening to the journy fm etc........

Grand Theft Auto has a great art style and feel to it and that what make it special from it's competitors

It is a step above anything we are currently seeing this generation

I think we should wait for actual gameplay first before jumping the gun people. For all we know all the screenshots we've seen so far are possibly bullshots.

@ first1NFANTRY

I understand your concern about getting over excited, however as far as GTA and R* they don't really have a history of using bullshots.

R* always use the ingame engine to create their trailers and screen shots, at least as far back as I can remember and just going by GTA and RDR, there was nothing they showed of those two games graphically that was deminished in anyway when the final product came out.

The only thing you don't really get a feel for, or the only thing you cannot judge is how smooth it will run. Issues like frame rate can become a factor.

Now I think about it prob the only other thing you don't always see in their screen shots is jaggies.

Apart from jaggies and framerate, usually what you see is what you get when it comes to R* showing off their games.

Well there's little doubt that it's a great looking game. I mean anyone that games at all can see that. But let's wait and see how it performs, how good the gameplay is, and how good the AI is. Pretty isn't everything you know.

I don't have a horse in this race but you can bullshot trailers even with in-game video.

until i see it in motion, no

i still think god of war 3, mgs4, uncharted 2/3, and killzone 2/3 are the best looking, at least on PS3

Did you see the water in that one shot??
Sevir  +   1192d ago
Did you see the Water in Killzone 2 and 3, especially 3
With all the ice and such in it?

Comparing a finished game from a couple of years ago to one picture?

Video or it didn't happen.

I always thought the screens of every GTA looked good but every time I loaded up a new GTA I encountered a choppy frame rate, pop up and horrible aa issues. I can't see it changing with this one, I just wish I had a gaming PC :/
Nocturne147  +   1192d ago
What i want is optimized port.
OmniSlashPT  +   1192d ago
This guy clearly never played Uncharted 3. It has the best element effects I've seen in a video game (fire, water, dust, sand).

Besides, GTAV characters still seem uncharacterized and generic as seen in the screenshots, just copies. I wouldn't mind some character detail.
iamlegend9999  +   1192d ago
Those new screenshots did give me a slap in the face. Especially the one with the plane. Water looked like something you can drink out of xD.
Hicken  +   1192d ago
Probably not.

I mean, it COULD be, but I doubt it WILL be.
Megaton  +   1192d ago
Maybe, after the mod community gets their hands on it like they did with GTAIV.
SpinalRemains  +   1192d ago
Is this a joke?

How can any multiplat, let alone a Rockstar game be the prettiest ever?
black911  +   1192d ago
It's on the 360 so NO!!!!!
tachy0n  +   1192d ago
its on consoles so NO! /S

what a fanboy you are.
MysticStrummer  +   1192d ago
No. It will look worlds better than SR3 though.
Sevir  +   1192d ago
lol... not in the longest
Watch Dogs, The Last of Us and Beyond look above anything coming out this year or next. R* games are good but severely overhyped. GTA4 proved that.

GTAV does look stunning but not better looking than anything we've seen this generation!
GrandTheftZamboni  +   1191d ago
Yeah, if not bullshots those could be a PC screenshots for all we know.
nihonlight  +   1192d ago
I hope R* show just how incompetent Bethesda is.
You know GTAV will be lag free and virtually bug free.
PygmelionHunter  +   1191d ago
Since when did games that try to go for a realistic look become "pretty", sure the tech behind them may be impressive but if I take a short look through my window, I know these games actually look like **** in comparison, now, on the other hand, if I play a game like say, Okami for example, it's actually appealing in a totally different way because of its unique art style and how it's something you will never see in real life.

To me, that's what games are all about, experiences of joy and art that take me away from reality, that's not to say I don't play games like Battlefield 3 but, there's no way those games can be considered "pretty" IMO.

look its ok to be a fangirl and defend a game but not like this lol...gta was never pretty and this one wont either compare to other games
spektical  +   1191d ago
idc about the graphics, if the main character doesnt have personality this will be another overrated GTA4.

hopefully rockstar looking at Vercetti and CJ
nik666uk  +   1191d ago
I still think GOW3 has the best looking water
