GTA IV screens steal our attention, then beat it to death

We're not going to lie -- when the first screenshots for Grand Theft Auto IV leaked out onto the interwebs, we thought the game was rather fugly. Nothing against the folk at Rockstar or anything, we just didn't really think they looked that special. We've got some new screenshots for you to look at now and the game seems to be improving in visual quality. But really, who plays the GTA games for the graphics? It's all about the stuff you can get your character into and that seems just as top-notch as ever. We're looking forward to seeing and hearing more!
