There’s something about this trailer for GTA V that amazes me. It’s not that the graphics are higher resolution or more photo realistic. They’re not. I’ve seen new games recently that look much more realistic. Especially when it comes to the people. But the world illustrated in this trailer is amazing nonetheless. It just feels realistically alive. There’s a shot of a guy just crossing the street at the 0:54 second mark that just feels flat out real. I think this shows that there’s more to making a realistic virtual environment than pixel density.
