I don't like the realistic graphics

I don't like how it looks realistic. I guess part of the charm was due to the lack of polygons, they were forced to make the world and its inhabitants more stylized. Now that it's so realistic, it kind of takes away from the charm of the series.



While that looks great graphically and all, it lacks that charm. It's hard to describe.

I think the graphics are a good thing! I mean there still not amazing, but for a GTA game, even a next-gen one, there still pretty fucking good.

The realism has quite the opposite affect, actually.

In reality, the hyper-stylized visuals -- dynamic weather and lighting -- helps create the gritty atmosphere of a living, breathing city.This version of GTA actually looks like a real city, whereas VC and SA looked like caricature of the cities they were supposed to be, in this case Miami and Los Angeles respectfully.

Clearly, R* wanted to get branch away from the cartoony graphics and step it up a notch, QED in IV's trailer.

The graphics were not cartoony they were just out of proportion. The environments seem realistic ,but the character model doesn't. Sure its model had realistic shading and coloring ,but it seem slightly stylized. His proportions were off ,but on purpose.

The charm isn't just in the graphics, it was in the animations and the way people acted, which we haven't seen a lot of yet.
