The Week in Unbelievably Gorgeous Screenshots: Grand Theft Auto IVS

Since we ran a feature on Duncan Harris, the groovy "video game photographer" behind the website DeadEndThrills, I've been sharing some of his work each week here.

This week Harris brought in some great shots from a modded version of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV. Let's take a look!

(Small note: This week, the full 1080p images were a touch to big for us to host. So, most of these are only at 720p. If you'd like to download the full HD images, head on over to Dead End Thrills.)

First up, up top we have:

Another World

I love this shot of the GetaLife building, certainly one of the most iconic buildings in Liberty City's Skyline. The textures on the sky here are amazing. Bonus points for a classic game shout-out in the title!

"Glow In The Dark"

Great night shot of Star Junction. I'd love to mod the crap out of the PC version of the game just to see if I could get the lights to look like this.

"The Surface of Things"

Another shot of downtown, this one during the day. Dear lord, this game certainly never looked like this when I played it.

"The Crossing Guard"

Nice shot of Algonquin (I believe?) in the rain. Again, with the insane amount of detail that was packed into this game. It's an incredible feat of game-making, even four years later.

Tools and tricks: iCEnhancer 1.25 ENB Series mod, antialiasing (injected SMAA), 2160p rendering, game resource check overrides, Simple Trainer 6.4, Cam-Control mod, time and weather control, no-HUD, custom FOV.

"Invisible Ink"

The thing I dig most in this one is the graffiti in the background. Again with the details. I remember when I first played GTA IV marveling at the Grafitti, and wondering how Rockstar managed to put together so much good stuff.

Tools and tricks: iCEnhancer 1.25 ENB Series mod, antialiasing (injected SMAA), 2160p rendering, game resource check overrides, Simple Trainer 6.4, Cam-Control mod, time and weather control, no-HUD, custom FOV.

"Hill Street Hues

Fantastic shot of the Dukes branch of the Liberty City PD; this one actually looks just a biiit like Bully, which makes me wish all over again that we could get a sequel to that super amazing game. Anyway, this picture is cool.
