Why Can’t All Games Have Graphics Like Gran Turismo 5?

What you’re about to see is a gallery of screenshots from Gran Turismo 5, the game that’s taken forever to get here but has finally arrived at long last.

I think there’s no question that these are in fact the best graphics to ever be seen on a console before, but my question is how? How is Gran Turismo able to render this level of detail, but say, Grand Theft Auto, with the same-type cityscapes and cars cannot. I’m sure there are a million technically explanations for this, such as Gran Turismo NOT being full of pedestrians and open world maps and cars not frequently blowing up due to volleys of automatic gunfire, but I just wish than other game could get to this level.

It’s entirely possible a few shots of actual cars slipped in here, because honestly, in some of these its pretty damn hard to tell the difference. Is photorealism the final frontier for games? And when will it finally get here?

Check out the gallery below:
