When so many of Grand Theft Auto V's missions focus on blasting through the world at breakneck speed, it's all to easy to ignore the details, which is an absolute tragedy. That's why I'm glad videos like this exist: videos that take the time to focus on the incredible work being done in this video game. The world of Grand Theft Auto V can be breathtaking at times.
And in hindsight I think this may be why, despite the fact I am enjoying GTA V, I still prefer Red Dead Redemption: a game that seems to utilise its environment in more seamless way. Actually that might be unfair: maybe it's more that Red Dead Redemption was more guided in its attempts to make us appreciate the world and exist in that world. Maybe that's more accurate.
Regardless, if you have a spare five minutes, just sit back, relax and breathe it in. When all the whinging is done, Grand Theft Auto V is such a stellar technical achievement.
