Marketing graphical fidelity is one of the main selling points of the new generation of consoles. And with console exclusive titles trying to outperform one another in order to prove the superiority of their respective host platform, you would think that the Forza (Microsoft) and Gran Turismo (Sony) franchises would have the best looking automobiles in the industry. Especially considering how they are both racing games, as well as Forza being one of the Xbox One’s launch titles back in the day, with a sequel in the works.
Well, you’d be wrong! Here we have GTA V, which is not only a multiplatform game that launched initially in the previous console generation, but cars aren’t even the primary focus. Sure, they’re kind of a big thing, with “Auto” being the A in the title and all, but they aren’t as much in the spotlight as cars would be in dedicated racing games such as Forza and Gran Turismo.
Now, lest we be accused of being biased, we all can agree that both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are solid platforms, and their prospective games look pretty damn good. Discounting any and all opinions, however (keep the console wars out of the comments, please), the PC’s hardware capabilities allow for high end desktops to outperform both – especially when mods are taken into account.
We bring to you, in the following Rockstar Editor video, the best looking car models from the gaming industry, straight from GTA V. The video makes use of a modded PC version of GTA V, with several graphical mods installed to up the visual quality, as well as a few of the recent real-world car model mods that have been in part enabled with the new ZModeler GTA V import/export feature.
What do you guys think of the video? Impressive, right?
