You know those car videos? The ones where Ken Block gets in some super powered car and drives around a course really, really fast and make a lot of noise? Then they cut to super hi-res, super slow motion as he sort of drifts around and misses a traffic cone by millimetres? Yeah, as much as I'm not really into cars, those vids are really fun to watch. As is the above — a Grand Theft Auto IV video that takes all of those tropes and puts them into the game itself. It's pretty incredible.
It's testament to the detail of Grand Theft Auto IV (and also the mods) but there were times when I legitimately forgot I was watching a video game and just succumbed to the gymkhana experience. Also — it reminded me of just what an amazing space Liberty City was. Regardless of what you think of Grand Theft Auto IV as a game (and I loved it) you can't deny the sheer quality of the city itself — the detail, the look, everything.
I really, really love this video.
