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

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.


Get banned from online mode, buy another license, rinse repeat.


Deluded cretin.

My 1080 can't run the game at 60FPS with maximum grass.

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


What alternate reality do you live in where this is true?

I don't know, GTAV looks pretty s*** tbh. Doesn't even look as good as 4 in a lot of ways.

Probably because you're running it on a s*** rig with bad settings.

My rig is in my Sig, I had constant issues with it, gta has gone from good to bad and if you are too blind to see that I'm sorry... I'm fixing to upgrade t ryzen but don't worry I will check back in to confirm it needs work.

I wouldn't have issues if it was, I nodded 4 and it ran great, can't mod V online and offline gets boring quick, not much else to consider it being my system as the issue

Doesn't really make sense, we're talking about performance and you just said GTA went from good to bad. So you're saying GTA IV was good performance and V is bad? Or that III-SA were good and IV/Vare bad? Weird, you would think such a poor performing game wouldn't continue to sell thousands of copies per month so far after release.
