Exclamation God, I hate you people...

who are getting to play GTA IV maxed out on your PC!! I see all these screenshots of how it looks maxed out and think, "Oh, I guess I'll just go play my blurry console version."

Now my eyes bleed [again] when I play. My computer is damn fine but lacks a video card (read: has NONE) so I can't play it at all.

I keep seeing these crystal clear screenies with a draw distance that isn't 50 feet and am entirely, completely, and fully jealous of you people and somewhat pissed off at myself.

You people! Youuuu!!!

In other news, I'm not the only one who hates you.

P.S. - Watch ya back.

Don't feel left out, I suffer from this problem as well. I'm just not as violent about it.

Baaaah! You and your unflinchingly cruel logic, Rappo!

Looking at these screenies almost makes me not WANT to play the console version. There is such a noticeable difference in even the Medium settings, in terms of clarity.

GTA IV literally burned my eyes when I first got it and after ogling these screenies for so long and going back to the console version, they are again.

Yeah it really didn't occur to me how blurry the console versions were until I looked at some screenshots the other day. At the time it looked great to me, but after playing GTA IV on PC, I need clarity!

i play on my xbox 360 and it looks pretty good on my 22 in 1680x1050 pc monitor, i do notice some blurring and graininess once in a while especially in GTA IV but i'm sure if i had a high end PC i wouldnt wanna tolerate my current setup

TimBud is infamous around these partsTimBud is infamous around these parts
^^^it is indeed.
But ulimately the game will always be better on PC because of the modding potential and how purty it can look.
Although the price you have to pay for that does not balance out with what you get from the game imo.
The consoles have the upper hand for now imo

... you people? What do you mean "you people?"



Yes to reiterate what rappo says, yes you need a video card to play video games. Maybe you could get away with like Pong though.
