Guy Takes Pictures Showing Just How Realistic Grand Theft Auto V Looks

Grand Theft Auto V is set in the fictional city of Las Santos however it was partly modelled on the real city of Los Angeles, but just how much so will blow you away.

GTA fan Dave Michalczul decided to demonstrate just how much the city resembles Los Angeles by capturing snapshots of Los Santos in GTA V and then going out in the real world and trying to capture exactly the same photos in the real world. The results are incredible.

With some of these photos you might find it hard to distinguish between the game and reality. Grand Theft Auto V is pretty much real life!
