Take a look at these GTA V: Los Santos City vs Real Life Los Angeles comparison screenshots.
I just showed 4 of these to my parents and asked them to tell me which was real life and they got them all wrong haha! Incredible from Rockstar!
Why do I find this hard to believe? XD There is a huge minimap in the bottom of the screen. If I recall correctly, real life doesn't have minimaps but I could be wrong.
Not everyone's parents are computer literate ;).
I don't think you have to be computer literate to see the map XD
total load of bollocks lol. his parents are obviously either lying to him, blind, or this never happened.
Right there with you, especially considering there is a giant map and hud on the game pics. Not sure who would think real life has a hud...
Lol! In some of those pictures, the radar is the only way I can tell which one's a game and which one is a real life picture.
I dont know, the first time i played GTA5 my girlfriend asked me what movie i was watching, and that was on the PS3
the game looks great, no question. but even without the HUD, it's blatantly obvious which ones are screenshots and which ones are real life. GTA games have never had top tier lighting, and the textures aren't that great either. GTA graphics have always been impressive because of their scope and attention to detail. those things bring the world alive when you're playing the game. but in screenshots, many other games look better than GTA.
Haha why would I lie?.They just have no concept of video games and didn't even notice it, pretty impressive!
Should have gone to specsavers.
lol yeah right. while its impressive there is a huge difference regardless of map
I'm sorry, but both your parents need to visit an optometrist, and fast.
Pretty cool. However, some of the trees in the pictures of Los Angeles look strange. Almost like they put a filter on them or something... Still an incredible job Rockstar.
I was playing the game and my mom walks into my room saw me playing and instantly asked me if it was LA. My jaw dropped I was like wtf how do you know. Mind you my Mom is 60 and doesn't know a thing about video games.
Your mom is 60 and she walks in your room while ur playing? How old are you? What did she have you in her late 40s? Lol sorry just sounded odd I pictured this 40 year old living with his mom
Nothing is perfect and that's why I would never give a game a 10/10
:S I first saw these posted on my FB, and I thought they were last-gen vs current-gen.. whoops. (granted I only glanced) The first pic seems oddly matched with the wrong bridge.
Used to drive through Beverly hills daily for work. That first whole drive down Wilshire is pretty spot on; from the rounded Sony bmg building, all the way where Spago Beverly hills would be (canon drive)... Rockstar did a great job recreating it and it's a fun trip down memory lane. Sunset (up by the laugh factory) is pretty great too.
the fact you people looked for the mini map just proves how life like the images are, and if you deny GTAV doesn't look like real life then youre the blind ones. Amazing comparison and detail.
looked for it? when you look at pictures do you just stare dead center of the image or something ?
Great game and pretty good recreation of the feel of that city, but I still don't understand how the americans, especially the ones who dwell in LA, apparently don't realize that it's actually a tiny tiny tiny caricature of that city and find interest in wandering through Los Santos. The real LA is a gigantic sprawling city that spreads on over, I think it is something like 700 square kilometers. In GTA V it's like they took most of the well-known sceneries and landmarks of that city and stuck them together to form a much much smaller version of it. It's nice to wander through the in-game city, but at some point, you realize it's pretty small. Now if only they had gone with the real LA like in that game that came out on the PS2, True Crime Streets of LA, and kept the game the same, same characters, same scenario, same missions etc. GTA V would've been even better I think.
