    Take-Two also DMCA'd old GTA mods. Remove old mods then force this, possibly unmoddable, Unreal Engine abomination.

    Literally any 3D game with huge maps? Quarantine? Daggerfall? Terra Nova: Strike Force Centuri? And hell, why not Driver too.

    Even 2D open world games such as classic RPGs are important for comparison; technological breakthroughs mean fuck all without good game design to accompany it, and the game design of GTA3 is unimpressive and was back in 2001. Only simps were impressed. Not a bad game, but I certainly don't consider it a classic. Technologically it didn't exactly reinvent the wheel either. It wasn't Ultima Underworld or Doom. Almost any high profile game back then was making steps forwards regarding technological progress you dummy. And plenty not so high profile too.

    It sounds like you just fell for the marketing hype and buzzwords. I remember all that shit. It wasn't that impressive.

    WTF? I hate this soulless remaster shit. They all do the exact same thing: lots of needless graphics whoring for the awful graphics whores, and also add a few dumbing down features for the casuals that whine, never anything that instead increases gameplay depth.

    People need to stop buying this remaster shit but they just consume. For no reason. Takes two seconds to acquire the old games typically in better condition and with mods for better play experience. Oftentimes these people even own the original game but buy the new version just because it is new and offers tasteless graphics whoring.

    So I do not have all of the old GTAs on PC. Where am I supposed to get them now outside of illegal means?

    Fuck I hate what this soulless sellout shitstain of an industry has become.

    Can you elaborate? What new engines? Are they compatible with the hundreds of mods out there in that case?

    Essentially reverse engineered versions of the original GTA 3 and VC engines. Sadly they didn't get around to SA and Rockstar/Take-Two are suing them but it's worth a look for how well made they are since they fix the modern compatibility issues people could run into.

    So not compatible with mods? Don't think I could stomach playing them again without some heavy gameplay incline. They're not exactly very replayable with their auto aim shit, rigid missions, and good but not great baseline gameplay.

    Is the source available? Maybe I should make some incline for it. Every time I go looking for GTA mods I get overwhelmed by garbage anyway. A few caught my eye but they are buried underneath hordes of trash.

    This is amazing. Those stylized models clashing with the amped levels of texturing, after-effects and reflective lighting is the epitome of graphical tackiness and stylistic bankruptcy.


    Ere's your Duffenetuv Edistion remaster bruv, year of our lord 2021.

    If the mods are reliant on the original binaries, they're obviously not compatible. If they're not, they should work. Stuff like widescreen/silent/aimfix and the rest of the basics is already included.

    It kind of sounds like you're the one who needs to play more games, not me. In what world are Daggerfall and Terra Nova relevant to GTA? They're all entirely different genres.

    That's the biggest fail across the entire industry: colours and lighting. Every game looks like plastic, remaster or not.

    Biggest fail is the gameplay being dumbed down to retard levels.

    No. It's just just worse for the gamer.
    But the colours/lighting are a solved problem, and the solution would be easy to implement. Gameplay is not quite as easy.

    Both are no accident though, and simply are evidence that we are no longer the target audience. Braindead negroes, faggots, NPCs and cape shit fans are.

    You wanna know how you know this isn't true? The characters are exaggerated in GTA and GTA2. It wasn't a stylistic choice because of the 3D polycounts, it was just a stylistic choice. If they wanted the drawings they put in GTA, or those little talking heads in GTA2 to look realistic they could've done that, but they didn't, instead they made the characters look like this:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now they may have stayed with that stylistic choice because of the PS2, not that there weren't games on the PS2 that same year that looked better and had characters with more realistic proportions, but these were stylistic choices they made for GTA before 3D models ever figured into the equation.

    Also GTA4 and GTA5 came out on the exact same generation of hardware and GTA4 is still using exaggerated character models but GTA5 isn't really anymore. You put a character's face from GTA4 next to a character's face from GTA5 and they almost look like two different series.
