If all the GTA 5 PC mods (opens in new tab) fun hadn't convinced you already, perhaps these astonishing images from Reddit user InterventX (opens in new tab) will have you throwing your console over your shoulder in disgust. Created in Director Mode with no mods, these screens were taken on a PC with an i7 processor and a GTX 780 3GB graphics card. With rabbits and deer in forest shots that look like Center Parcs adverts, the gallery above shows exactly why it took an extra 18 months for GTA 5 (opens in new tab) to come to PC. It took a lot of mods to get Skyrim to look this pretty (opens in new tab) but GTA 5 might have it hands down with these shots. You can download them as wallpapers here (opens in new tab).
