Recently, there's been a bunch of comparisons showing up online of how Grand Theft Auto V looks when measured against Grand Theft Auto IV. Check out some of the best comparisons here!
Recently, two comparisons between the graphics of GTA IV and GTA V have grabbed my attention. They're interesting because they do a very good job at showing the advancements in technology over the past few years. Two screenshots side by side don't really do it if you want to make a proper comparison, and the two comparisons we present below have understood that, going to great lengths to be accurate in their demonstration.
The first comparison is a GTA IV recreation of trailer 2 for GTA V done by a YouTuber by the name of Golonka. Watch them side by side at YouTube Doubler, or check the remade trailer out by itself below. Admittedly, certain things are lacking in the comparison, such as facial expressions or lip syncing, but other than that, there's been a lot of effort put into it. It should be pointed out though, that this version of GTA IV does not seem to be running on maximum graphics settings.
