Immersion updates I’d like to see in the PS5 version of GTA 5
I know this isnt gta 6 related but i just feel that it’s about a future version of GTA which is supposedly getting overhauled, and I think y’all care more about wish lists than gtaonline
- Fake interiors should be turned into real interiors.
Any store that has fake glass that’s really just a texture destroys any sort of immersion and worsens the game. They dont necessarily have to be enterable but I’d appreciate an actual three dimensional rendering when I look in through the window
- reuse more interiors across the map
There’s several clothing stores, barber shops, etc. that are just a brick with a sticker over it saying “barber” or whatever. The files are already in the game, just put an interior on it
- Terrain and cars should effect each other more
As is, all terrain just feels the same. I wish your car would sink a little bit into sand, I wish grass caused your car to burn out a little more when taking off and kick off dirt a bit.
To add, there should be more destructible terrain. Like trees, walls, etc.
RDR2 has the exact same rage engine as GTA 5 and can handle animals, i think the addition of animals would improve GTA greatly
Clothing doesn’t effect the player all that much, aside from bulletproof helmets, night vision goggles, that stuff
I wish they gave more reason to selectively choose what you’ll wear. Maybe if you dress like a terrorist with all this heavy armor you might take more damage but you can’t run (ala the OG heist armor)
Or maybe if you wore a pimp coat all kill give 100 RP instead of 25, it just gives you more of a reason to want to purchase different types of armor if they behave different
I know GTA is NOT an RPG but they do include RPG mechanics that suck. Stealth as a mechanic sucks and it’s equally impossible to use at level 0 or level 5 stealth. Maybe increased stealth decreases the reaction time of enemies when they spot you
I think the stats like strength, driving, etc should just be removed as a whole
Shooting should be weapon specific similar to GTA San Andreas, making you upgrade your micro smg stat before it becomes drive by available or whatever.
Brand new stats like hacking, lock picking, or drilling could change the ease of hacking, the likelihood of getting caught stealing a car, or the time it takes to overheat a drill
These are the rpg mechanics i want. Not lung capacity
- The map should have the features of the story mode map.
There’s so much color that GTA online dulls down, there’s dialogue that doesn’t get used in online, there population density is reduced.
These new consoles are literally probably 50x faster than the consoles gta online debuted on, so I think they could effortlessly handle the features they toned down from story mode

No matter how good my hardware, I'm scared to use it.
TL;DR: I always play games in lowest graphical settings in order to reduce the load on the hardware, with the assumption that less usage/heat will increase the lifespan and performance of the hardware. How much of this is true and am I just compromising most of the beauty of the game in order to gain a negligible advantage in performance and hardware lifespan?
I've been gaming since before I knew how to operate a computer. It sounds exaggerated but it's true. One of the very first games I played was Doom and I was probably just 4-5 years old (the game was already out for a few years). I wouldn't even know how to control the character and didn't understand how to shoot enemies, but I had the interest and I was good at it. I pretty much finished an entire level from the Plutonia Experiment without ever reading a single word of instruction from the game (didn't happen in one day of course). Didn't even know the key bindings, but still I had performed better at the game than most older kids that were around me at that time. But then again, they didn't have the talent or interest that I did for gaming. But this was a time when games had to be able to run on the average user's PC, and it was the developers responsibility to stay within these hardware limitations. Nowadays it's the opposite. It's the gamers who are constantly upgrading their hardware in order to keep up with the games.
Unfortunately I live in a country where the PC hardware market is not as evolved as it is in the USA or other western markets and as a result we haven't developed much of a PC building culture. It's extremely tough to get the latest and greatest in gaming since the consumers didn't have the need nor the knowledge to create a demand (most people here still have the misconception that more RAM = more power and that's all you need in a computer). Due to this, a good majority of gamers depend entirely on pre-built gaming units sold by the big players of the PC market (Dell, Asus, Lenovo, MSI, HP etc.) and if you want good hardware, you have to pay an exorbitant amount. There was no way around it.
Due to the market working in this way, each individual part was now much more valuable. I couldn't just buy the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, I had to buy a laptop that has RTX 2070. Although there may be people who still managed to build a state of the art high end gaming PC, it's definitely much tougher to do it here.
This brings me to the main point of discussion. To put it simply my current gaming laptop has a 512 GB SSD (windows takes up a good chunk of SSD, with the usual 1 TB HDD but why would any gamer use HDD unless they have no choice?), Intel i7 10th gen, 32 GB RAM and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 but this cost me around $2025. I know that if I had built a PC myself it wouldn't have cost me this much. Because of this, now my hardware is worth much more and I can't afford to replace the hardware as and when I need to (I ruined my last laptop's motherboard by trying to open it up and apply thermal paste so ever since then I'm really not confident in working with hardware myself). Because of this, I find myself playing games at the lowest setting possible in order to avoid overusing/overheating my hardware. To put things into perspective, my GTA 5 graphics settings tells me that I'm using 1.7 GB out of 8 GB graphics memory (this is due to the 8x anti-aliasing, even I can't bear to look at those jagged lines). I just don't have the money to slowly burn away my hardware just so that the game looks pretty, but at the same time I'm not using the hardware to its full potential.
I clearly don't have the expertise or knowledge that most PC/gaming enthusiasts have, so I'm just putting forward some concerns that I feel might or might not be correct due to my insufficient knowledge in the matter.
- Since it's a known fact that the more we use electronics, the sooner it's going to stop working. Similarly, will playing games at the lowest settings guarantee a longer lifespan for my hardware?
- Taking into consideration my GTA 5 example above, will my hardware undergo the same amount of load whether I'm just using 1 GB or the entire 8 GB of graphics memory? If not, then what is the ideal balance between graphics and lifespan/performance?
I know some people would rage over the fact that I have an RTX 2070 and I play GTA 5 like it were San Andreas but I just don't have the heart to put my hardware through hell just so that I can feel pretty about myself and my laptop LOL.
