Some people just don't appreciate the immense amount of work that goes into creating a virtual world.
A massive environment like the one we got in Grand Theft Auto V took years and countless hours to create. For a more visual understanding of such an effort, check out GTAist , where you can find side-by-side comparison images for GTAV's Los Santos and the real-world Los Angeles metropolis. Pictures include the Griffith Observatory (Los Angeles) vs. the Galileo Observatory (Los Santos), along with skyline images and surprisingly detailed pics. It's very interesting to see just how close Rockstar got to the real thing.
GTAV has been out for a while, but it did just release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One late last year. If you haven't yet had the pleasure, you're missing out on one of the very best games ever . No exaggeration.
