I’m guessing because of the size of the world and everyone in it(GTAV)?

Dark Souls has FAR better graphics than GTAV and my laptop runs it just fine.

But I have to bring down the settings in GTAV pretty low just to get it running 1/2 way good.

What’s the deal?

gtav is far more demanding

dark souls graphics aren't technically better than gtav at all

Because it was poorly optimized, just look at 4, it has many issues running and usually has to be modded, I would expect no less from 5, but fanboys gonna buy it so it likely wont change

Without providing your system specs/game settings it would be impossible to give you advice.

the game is continually in the top selling on steam, well after it was originally released, which means its well after the fanboys have all purchased it but it still keeps getting bought. critic and user reviews for the pc version are overwhelmingly positive. and guess what, the majority of gamers aren't gaming on high end hardware. so it doesn't seem like you have any clue as to what you're actually talking about.

gonna second this. back when it first came out on PC i was able to get a steady 60 fps on medium/low settings at 1080p on my 760 so i don't think optimization is a problem.

that said, i get like 45 fps on average on my laptop with a 950m in dark souls 3 and i have no intention of seeing how bad it'd be in gta v, if only because gta is a far more demanding game.

Get your eyes checked. Sounds like you might have some sort of vision deficiency.
