This is what a timelapse day-night cycle of Los Santos looks like in GTA V. That is, if you climb Vinewood Hills, stand there for hours, and take pictures with the in-game phone—just as Plonkey on the GTA V subreddit did. Incredible!

I've never cared for GTA as a franchise, but the amount of detail that's gone into this game— especially considering that it came out on the current generation of consoles— is staggering.

This, plus The Last of Us, really hallmarks what this generation could accomplish, in my mind. It blows my mind to think those games were even possible on hardware from 2005.
