Grand Theft Auto V Trailer

As promised, the new trailer for Grand Theft Auto V is now online to show off the next installment in Rockstar Games' open-world action series. The clip does not reveal the game's subtitle (presuming it will have one), but it seems to confirm recent rumors that GTAV will be set in a fictionalized version of Los Angeles, which may be called Los Puerta based on a glimpse of a road sign for the Los Puerta Freeway. The narration is from one character's perspective so there is no support yet for rumors that it will feature multiple playable characters. The version posted on that page seemed to repeatedly stop just after the one minute mark, so it's possible you may have to grab a downloadable version (as we did) to see the whole thing. There is no indication of when to expect the game's release.

Regardless, it was still a complete abortion of a PC game on a technical level. Whereas Mafia II offered much better graphics and excellent performance, even though the gameplay itself was much more restrictive. Don't get me wrong, I found GTAIV to be a very enjoyable game but it was a struggle to see past the horrible engine.

You can't compare one engine to another like you're doing, but I agree GTA4 had issues on the PC. I think it was just written so specifically for the processor-focused console hardware that it would have taken a LOT more development time and resources to port it right to the gpu-focused PC market than they were willing to spend. Most of the really fervent complaints came from people with average or lower processors and great video cards who didn't understand why the game wasn't playing great at max settings.

The port itself was quite good. They made higher resolution textures, the options menus were robust both in video and gameplay settings, it allowed you to use a gameplad and mouse combination, etc. etc. The only real issue was performance, which makes sense given the focus of the engine. The end-all-be-all remains that GTA4 on PC at low settings is still a much better looking and performing game than the console versions, which were very low-res, covered in a terrible blur filter and ran at 20-25fps most of the time.

I think it's a shame that the reaction to GTA4 on PC likely killed our chances of seeing Red Dead Redemption on PC, and maybe even GTA5. Even if they were identical ports to GTA4 they would still be the best versions of the games.
