Pointless- but awesome.
Certain developers in our industry have a knack for cramming their games full of detail, allowing players to really immerse themselves in the worlds and environments they find themselves in. And often, these developers go above and beyond, putting so much thought and tiny little details into these games- stuff that we might not even see or notice. Sure, that stuff is, in the grand scheme of things, pointless – to put it crudely – but when you find out about it, you can’t help but be really, really appreciative that at least it’s in there. In this feature, we’ll be taking a look at fifteen such details.
GTA 5 – LIGHT POLLUTION
Grand Theft Auto 5’s Los Santos is a stunning recreation of Los Angeles, and though it isn’t exactly 1:1 for obvious reasons, it exhibits some impressive level of detail in several areas. An example of that is the light air pollution you can see in the game against its skybox at night- look at the sky at nighttime from inside the city, and then from on top of a hill on the outskirts, and the difference will be immediately noticeable.
