With both the ENBSeries and Gionight‘s graphics mod both turning heads throughout the modding and gaming communities, the race is on for a place in modding history. With the aforementioned two making the rounds on the internet, graphics enthusiasts watch with excitement of varying intensity, waiting which will be ready first.
What’s this? A new challenger appears!
SweetFX is the name of the newest mod on the block, and the name is quite accurate. GTA V is a damn pretty game in its own right, even, even, on last-gen consoles. This was the game that players called the “first true next-gen” release. This was the game that proved in April that the Xbox One and Playstation 4 still fall way behind the PC. Unmodded GTA V running on max setting in 4K produces screenshots that could be mistaken for photographs.
And then came a few crazy, crazy people who decided that that wasn’t enough. Talented coders and modders sat down sat down in front of GTA V and said it does not look good enough. Instead of spewing hateful bile on some forums though, they decided to actually do something about it.
We’ve seen the release of other ENB mods, such as the one for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Gionight has also worked on the same game. The guys behind SweetFX have also released mods for a metric ton of other games, making countless titles that much easier on the eyes. They’ve also done a great job with Rockstar’s latest open-world hit. It will be damn difficult to proclaim a winner in this particular unofficial competition considering the minute difference, and who knows how many others will join the fray.
What do you guys think of this graphical mod? Does it trump the other two? Do you even care?
