Check out this comparison between GTA 5 on PS3 and on PS4. New is better, much better, but is better always better?
Los Santos looks more like LA on PS4. I grew up in LA/OC, and I don’t know if that’s such a great thing.
The ocean looks awesome. There’s foam and white water and all that. It’s a bit rougher, too. I went surfing as a kid. I almost died. Never went surfing again. I still remember the near death experience.
There’s also wildlife and more grass in the hills. Grass that feeds major wildfires. I remember ash falling from the sky on one of those summer day.
The main drawback is the traffic. Lots more cars on the freeways on PS4. I’m surprised they’re moving, but brings back some bad memories of commuting from Anaheim to Westwood. Probably lost a decade of my life breathing that air.
Better is better. More real is better, but not always when real brings back less than better memories.
