  1. 9 studios and 2000+ people working for them and they outsource it to a dev thats only ever worked on mobile games. they should of handled it in house or game it a dev that has more experience with the unreal engine

  2. My hats off to everyone responsible for this breakdown. I was… really impressed with how in-depth a lot of the breakdowns were.

  3. When the game is this awful on every platform it seems silly comparing the different versions, though I'm sure you do it very well. Still, the first of your vids I've ever passed on, simply because its just a showcase of how inept a dev can be.
    Hope you get put on a better project more worthy of your talents!

  4. Brilliant detective work and analysis, Michael.

    Three of the greatest, most influential games ever made. Three of the most ineptly, carelessly, criminally incompetent remasters ever made. Terrible shame.

  5. I was SO looking forward to this release, but I decided to wait. I'm glad I did. I wanted to get it on Switch to play on handheld, but seeing all the problems it has I don't think that'll be a possibility

  6. Too bad they started developing these “remasters” a few months before releasing (clearly). 3 classic GTA games on the Switch would have been a dream come true, instead we got a living nightmare! 😱🥺

  7. Really disappointing. I'd hoped it would be given the love that Rockstar gives their other games. While I believe they've stated they are committed to fixing the issues, Cyperpunk 2077-style, I honestly don't see this happening. Cyperpunk 2077 made a ton of money in presales, likely enough to cover a lot of the work they still had to do. I doubt the Trilogy will make enough money or sell enough copies to warrant more than a few patches. I doubt these will ever be the remakes people imaged they were getting. You've just demonstrated that more difficult aspects of a remaster may not be technical. Fascinating!

  8. I'm praying for updates for my switch version I was…. very upset the day I bought this game… I'm willing to wait for the updates because I miss these game so much I just can't believe that this has happened, it just really sucks that I'm stuck with the worst version out of all of them..

  9. Let's make a list with the best remasters/remakes of all time for consoles:
    Shadow of the Colossus
    Halo Anniversary 1 & 2
    Gears of War Ultimate Edition
    Fable Anniversary
    Tomb Raider Anniversary
    The Legend of Zelda Wind Wake HD & Twilight Princess HD
    Demon's Soul
    Resident Evil 2 Remake
    Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
    Spyro Reignited Trilogy
    Yakuza Kiwami 1 & 2
    Conker Live and Reloaded (I know some disagree)
    SpongeBob SquarePants Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated

    Some other great remastered games but with the minimal differences of resolution and framerate or some other that don't change so much the look of the games:
    Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection
    The Last of Us Remastered
    Okami HD
    Gravity Rush Remastered
    Bayonetta & Vanquish
    Resident Evil (Gamecube version) + HD Remaster & 0 Remaster
    Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
    God of War 3 Remastered
    Darksiders Warmastered Edition

  10. Maybe they should have just ported the games to the switch as they were already available on the other platforms

  11. I didn't know these games were remastered by an independent company. I understand all the Rockstar studios must be working on GTA6 but the harm this has done to their brand image. They should have done this themselves or not done it at all.

  12. What a useless comparison video. It doesn't matter which version you buy, GTA Trilogy Reforged totally sucks on all platforms. Why even bother putting this video together ign when Rockstar completely [email protected]$ked up this 'definitive' edition. This is one of the few times where rival console gamers can all agree that the game is garbage no matter your platform preference. Rockstar should just refund everyone who bought the console versions of this disaster & bring back the superior original digital versions of the trilogy that they recently removed in favor of this dumpster fire of a 'remaster'👎😒👎
