Hey everyone! Today I’m going to talk about an old game series that I’ve been playing since I was a kid. The first time I played it, the graphics were not so great. However, as the years went by, games improved and so did the Grand Theft Auto series. While some of the Grand Theft Auto games had HD remakes, others did not and only got a few graphical tweaks. Here are all the games in my favorite video game series and what they looked like:
Grand Theft Auto 2
After the success of GTA 1, developer DMA Design decided to move forward with a sequel. This is where things started to get interesting.
Released in 1999, GTA 2 was the first game in the series to feature a 3D environment and vehicles other than cars (street trucks and helicopters). It also allowed players to choose their characters’ appearance and gender for the very first time—a choice that would become a recurring theme throughout subsequent releases in this franchise.
In addition to these character-based features, GTA 2 also introduced several new gameplay elements: police stations; health meters; drivable motorcycles; changing weather conditions; custom soundtracks; and multiplayer mode (up to four players). The game’s soundtrack consisted of licensed music from artists such as Orbital and Leftfield along with original tunes created by composer Rob Lord.
Grand Theft Auto III
GTA III was the first game in the GTA series to be released on consoles, and it was also the first game to take place in America. The graphics were not as good as they are today’s games, as you can see from this screenshot from 2001:
But it still had a huge impact on gaming when it came out.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
You might be wondering why a game that looks so much better is considered to be worse than one that clearly looks worse. The answer lies in what makes GTA games good.
The original Vice City was released on the PlayStation 2 and GameCube, but it wasn’t until 2005 when Rockstar remade it for Xbox and Windows with HD graphics that we could see how far video games had come since 2002. In addition to improved graphics, the gameplay also changed slightly; for example, instead of having a single main character you play as through most of the game (like CJ from San Andreas), you get to pick from any one of five different characters at any point throughout your playthrough. This gives Vice City an advantage when compared with San Andreas because it offers more variety in terms of what happens over time—and if nothing else has changed about your gameplay experience then why bother playing an older version?
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Let’s take a look at Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The graphics in this game have improved greatly over the previous titles in the series. The characters are more detailed and resemble their real-life counterparts much more closely than before. The world is bigger, too—you can now fly from one area of San Andreas to another using a variety of vehicles small, medium, or large. Finally, the game is more realistic than ever before; not only do everyday objects like food look like they’re real (not just an image), but there are also people walking around on sidewalks who react to what you do! This adds even more fun to playing GTA: SA because it feels like you’re actually there instead of just sitting on your couch playing video games all day long 🙂
The most obvious difference between GTA III and GTA IV is graphics: everything looks better now thanks largely due increased processing power available today compared with back then when developers had less horsepower available at hand when making these titles back then ;). There’s also been improvement made outside
Grand Theft Auto IV (HD Remake)
As a long-time fan of the Grand Theft Auto series, I have always been impressed with how the games have evolved over time. The graphics are much better, the game is more realistic and detailed, it’s more immersive and fun to play. It has been upgraded in so many ways that it’s almost like playing a whole different game altogether!
The graphics are great for its time but they’re not as good as this one. There are also lots of new features added such as dynamic weather effects (which can change from sunny to rainy or snowy at any moment), more dynamic lighting which means there will be more shadows depending on where you are standing when playing (so if there is light coming from behind something then you will see its shadow). There is also an improved shooting mechanic that lets players aim their guns by looking around instead of just pointing them down directly ahead which helps make aiming easier while still keeping things challenging enough that they won’t get bored too quickly while playing through missions or free roam mode
Grand Theft Auto V (HD Remake)
For those of you who are fans of Grand Theft Auto, the fifth installment in the series is known as Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V). This game was released on September 16th, 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It has a score of 92 on Metacritic and 93% on GameRankings. The game was developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games.
The HD remake was released on January 29th, 2015 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with new features such as first person perspective mode, increased draw distance, decreased load times and more!
The graphics in the new GTA games are so much better than the old ones. I cannot wait for new GTA game that will probably be released in a year or so.
It’s true that the new GTA games are better than the old ones. I mean, just look at this screenshot:

It looks way better than any other game out there! It even has real-time reflections and shadows (I’m pretty sure there was no real time reflections or shadows in Grand Theft Auto 3)!
