Grand Theft Auto IV Now Looks Even More "Next Gen"

Thanks to a dedicated community, the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV has been continually polished and upgraded since its release all those years ago. To the point where, now, it looks like something from the future.

The iCEnhancer series of mods, which we've featured before, are being updated to 2.5 (this is an alpha preview), and the results are amazing.

This looks as good as a quality first-person shooter. The fact that this kind of fidelity can be applied to an open world game the size of Liberty City is just mind-boggling.

DISCUSSION

Does anyone actually like motion blur? Please tell me, because I want to know. More and more games have it now, and depth of field too. Both things I hate. They can work really well in films, but when I play a video game, I want things to look as if I was there as that character.

I also think iCEnhancer looks worse than the default textures and lighting, but I understand that's probably a matter of preference on my part. But motion blur and DoF shouldn't be popular, they just aren't how the human eye works.
