Real Life Los Angeles Looks A Lot Like Grand Theft Auto V

The way we record video footage these days is different. Drones, time-lapse. A lot of these new techniques, combined with an increase in graphic fidelity, means that quite often real footage can start looking hyper real.

Real footage can start to look like a video game.

That’s certainly what happens in this awesome video.

It’s a collection of time-lapse shots of various spots in Los Angeles and it’s superbly well put together. It also gives me a new appreciation for just how well Rockstar recreated the vibe and feel of Los Angeles in Grand Theft Auto V. Los Santos might be the best virtual representation of Los Angeles we’re ever likely to see in video game form.

It’s when you see a video — a real-life video — try to capture the essence of Los Angeles; when you see that and notice, hey — this looks a lot like Los Santos. That’s when you realise just how good a job Rockstar did with Grand Theft Auto V.

Anyway, this is very cool. Worth watching.
