Uh screens like this just make the game look like shit, low res textures everywhere, look at the wall in pic 3 PSX era texture :D It will look much better on a TV in 720p.

Not sure if serious.

It will look better on a TV in 1080p lol

What I meant to say it will look better when viewed on TV from a distance so all the little flaws get hidden :D Since when I play stuff on my console I sit like 6-7 feet away from the TV but when I play something on a PC I'm like 1.5 feet from the monitor :)

And bad frame rates are more cinematic too ;)

Well I hope this won't have bad fps on consoles :p

looks terrible, the normal mapping method used here is just garbage

Says the dude who bitches about BF3's graphics. The game looks great.

Uhhhh, what? Based on...?
And the game looks fucking fine you whiny trolls. First of all, most of the textures are great and very sharp, and the best example you had was a fucking door jam. On top of that the game is being built to perform well, not rival BF3 or Crysis. Not every game needs to push the limits in picture quality. If the game looks fine, plays great, and runs well, that's enough for me.

Going by previous Rockstar efforts, getting a good framerate would be nice for once.

I'm guessing by "previous Rockstar efforts" you mean "GTA4," and I'm pretty certain this isn't an open world game. Granted, there's a lot more detail here. I guess we'll see.

WTF? Is there some sort of "fucked up eyes" virus? What is looking like shit? You know...when You capture the screen that big of any game and put it fullscreen, most of popular games would look like shit. This game looks great and its gonna be great. Just dont know, whats the reason of that never-ending bitching about everything. Wait for the game to be released.

Great? Haha give me a break dude, Uncharted 3 destroys this game visually. If Uncharted 2 or Uncharted 3 were on PC they would be light years ahead of this.

On the PC scene, Witcher 2 and Alan Wake are way ahead of this is as well.

Seriously that normal mapping on the characters is pathetic. It reminds me of early Xbox 360 games and it looks worse than GTAIV PC. Oh BF3...yea it doesn't hold a candle to Crysis :P

PSX era? Really? Stop being so childish. PS1 textures were 64x64 pixels.

Me thinks these shots were set up. How could you play in a wide objective shot like the 4th picture?

Nevermind the graphics, I hope the gameplay is there. It's starting to impress me more and more from the looks of things.

And RDR, LA Noire, San Andreas. Of course now being a linear game, framerate might be stable hopefully.

How can you even tell that when you can't see any real-time dynamic lights hitting them?

They take "high-res screens" very seriously at Rockstar.

Max Payne does seem to be getting alot of hate and that's odd considering R* track record.

Oh, are we talking about consoles? My bad.. since we were talking about good framerates, I just assumed you meant PC :P

Isn't that a given? XD

I really cannot understand how some people are so anal about the graphics.

I mean if you think this looks awful, then how did you guys play any games for the past 5 years let alone prior generations?

Graphics are just numbers. But there is a real artistry in maintaining a level of readability within a set technical limitation.
