How GTA V stacks up to other Grand Theft Auto games

The Grand Theft Auto franchise has come a long way since GTA: San Andreas was released back in 2005. While fans of the franchise likely hold a special place in their gamer hearts for this iteration of the series, it’s astounding to see just how far Rockstar has come in the last 7 years.

Staying true to these roots, GTA V will once again visit California. The sights and scenery may be familiar, but things certainly look much different than they did back then. A recent comparison was done of the two games via Tumblr, that shows screenshots that were recently released by Rockstar, and screenshots of the classic GTA game.

Looking at the screenshots from both games, it’s hard to believe that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas released only a short time before the arrival of the Xbox 360, a truly remarkable title on the PlayStation 2 and original Xbox that housed some pretty great graphics and a massive open world for the time.  GTA V may be pulling the same trick as this title, launching only shortly before the arrival of next-gen consoles if recent rumors are anything to go on.
