    The median in this case is 214 days so PC gamers are really looking at 7-8 months with 90% accuracy.

    If I remember correctly console version of GTA IV had FPS dips to around 15 fps quite often in some places in liberty city.
    Pretty much like PC version has FPS dips to 40-ies in same places. All that with huge draw distance, huge detail distance, huge vehicle count, high res textures, high res shadows, high res reflections, better water and night-time headlight shadows.
    Pretty consistent behavior with all platforms if you ask me, just not as optimized as it could be in general.
    From what I see on you-tube GTA V is much more optimized.

    I did exactly as video instructed, but I can't set anisotropic filtering to 16x.
    I used blonde Barbie, maybe that's it.

    Eh, I did that with GTA IV. Then never was able to get into it on PC since I already played it so much So I think I'll wait, it'll be sweeter later rather than satisfying now.

    I did that too, and the same results happened. Although It had something to do with GTA IV not really having a high gameplay value once you finish the story, you can't do anything worthwhile anymore after the last mission, mods made me play it for some time like the LCPDFR, but constant crashes and performances issues kept me from playing more.

    In GTA V's case there's alot to do in the game. I'm gonna get it for Xbox 360 for the missions, story and messing around. Then I'm gonna get it for PC for the multiplayer, mods and increased performance. Although I might have to download a game-complete save to jump start my progress on the PC version

    Really wished they would have released it alongside the 360/PS3, I would have pre-ordered. 400K people signed a petition, so there was a demand for the game.

    I'm leaving the country maybe next month or November and will not be taking my rig. I'm really tempted to buy it for my nephews 360, but I'd rather not buy a game twice.

    Guess I'll get it during the next Steam sale when I come back :D

    Rockstar doesn't want to shut up and take my money, I suppose.

    GTA 5 is so much fun. Excellent story and SOO much to do. Can't wait until the online play begins.

    I bought LA Noire on PS3 because of that...

    Really pissed me off when it came out on PC a few months later

    Funny... GTA never really had good GFX, especially compared to other offerings...

    Thats like comparing Wolfenstein 3d to FarCry :rolleyes:

    IMHO MaxPayne 1 & 2 along with FarCry & HalfLife were just to epic! We got spoiled. Now, we're getting f0ked :laugh:

    Did absolutely the same thing and bought it cheap on Steam and have never gotten around to actually playing it again on PC...

    I'm not sure thats the point, an 11 year gaps a pretty big one.

    I'd say yes to this post.

    a good optimized game isn't about running it on max settings on an intel 2000 chip, but being able to play it on decent settings, 30 fps, on A LOT of different systems.

    I think the point of the picture was to show the GFX between a very old PC game and the muddy washed out version of GTA 5 for Xbox 360

    an 11 year old PC game with a similar graphical style, looks superior to this game everyone wont shut up about.

    really does say it all - i found skyrim on xbox 360 to be nauseating to look at, and this is no different.

    Pretty hard to do when there was so much physics in the game.. Although if it had adjustable physics i bet that would of helped a lot but to me that would spoil the game to me..


    GTA 4 was more about physics than any thing else, and considering whenn my brother came over to the US and played it and said it looked and played much better than the xbox pretty much said it all.

    I am sure they tweaked it more now and more people have better systems to run. I just hope if theey do bring out a GTA 5 for PC that they do not nerf the physics as that was the thing i loved about GTA 4
