It’s been just over 20 years since the first game appeared in the Grand Theft Auto (or GTA) trilogy and during that time, technology has advanced so far that Rockstar Games thought it was time to rework the trilogy. But the trailer for the matches left fans feeling upset.
GTA has become an iconic franchise in the gaming world and has developed the popular trilogy that was released during the early 2000s. With so much popularity, Rockstar Games decided to remake the trilogy, but the first trailer for the remastered games left fans disappointed.

The original game became an online meme featuring graphics that now look poor compared to today’s technology (some characters didn’t even have fingers). The rework of the game is set up to give a new modern look to its cute graphics, however, the new look has been compared to the likes of Roblox online.
The new trailer posted by Rockstar Games via Youtube With a video of comparison clips from the original and remastered versions of the game. The video has already garnered more than 7 million views and showcases modern graphics in new games. The redesigned trilogy will also include new and updated controls inspired by GTA V, new textures, a redesigned lighting system and better accuracy.
Players responded to the announcement on Twitter, and the comments were somewhat negative (and sometimes hilarious). One user tweeted, “Sounds like a terrible ad for mobile games,” and another user asked, “How could a billion dollar company so miserably screw this up?” However, some praised the graphics, one user explained that they liked the “spicier” look of the new games, and another was excited about the nostalgia experience.
GTA: The Trilogy is a one-day purchase. I loved these games when I was a kid. I also didn’t expect these games to look so stylized pic.twitter.com/31TH8AzXlNOctober 22 2021

While the new look of the game has caused some unease among the gaming community as fans expect the graphics to look like GTA V, it is assumed that Rockstar Games wanted to preserve the cartoonish charm of the original trilogy. We think that while the graphics aren’t as modern as those in GTA V (or as realistic as those in Ride 4), they are reminiscent of the original games, which is a nice touch.
The trilogy isn’t set for release until November, so until then we’ll have to wait and see if the mod is as successful as the original games. But for now, why not check out our guide on how to pre-order a PlayStation 5, or our best deals on Xbox consoles.
