What does the American Dream mean today?For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape his past.For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.

that moment when game from 2008 runs worse that game from 2015 like Dying light or over demanding games -_- , i had this game a long time ago , and changed pc three times , and still my pc can't handle this game from 2008 at maximum settings with rock solid 60fps, i modded this game heavily , i putter HD texture, ant Natural and realistic ENB with realistic cars , but game looks jagged , the only way to smooth that all jagges is upscale , i put 4k resoliution , ofcource everything sharp but… i get 14-17fps on that resoliution using enb… just terible

I'd say medium-to-low setting for smooth framerate do to the low amount of VRAM in that card.
