I really REALLY wanted to like San Andreas, but its faults outnumbered its good points.

The only thing I found fun about San Andreas was strapping on a jetpack and using a rocket launcher aimed at random stuff and/or people.

Why?'s the best stress relief in the world for a bad day.

Your taste in music must not be that great if you think that Green Onions, Express Yourself, Think About It, Low Rider, Mother, Cult of Personality, Welcome To The Jungle, Movin' On Up, Groove Me, Keep On Movin', Almost everything on K-DST, Hey Good Lookin', Amos Moses, Mama's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys, I Know You Got Soul, It Takes Two, ect. are awesome.

I just started the game. I'm really glad I got done with the parts at the beginning where I had to avoid a car full of shooters on a bike. That sucked.

There was 3 huge ass islands in that game! Seriously, I ended up being in the middle of nowhere

I agree with you in everything except the on the radio; the radio in San Andreas had some tight songs in it

San Andreas music is really good

I just found this.

But if you REALLY hate CSR 102.9, something is wrong with YOU.

I mostly just stole a commercial jet from the airport and flew around the map with a full wanted level evading the enemy fighter planes shooting missiles constantly. I found it rather fun.

Samuel J Jackson did a good job as Officer Tenpenny a corrupt self hating black cop would be the perfect villian in a 90`s La game number 7 is the only problem I had with the game
JohnDavidbiehl Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
it kinda doesn't feel like the early 1990's. like less songs from the time period.or bright colored clothing.

2 3 and 7 are the bad part of the game....and 1 4 5 6 are good why would you return to Vice City?
Kenji1801 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012
Yeah, San Andreas is like an active PETA member at a burger party. Or a prostitute at a sophisticated gentlemen's club. It's the odd one out. It just doesn't fit.

Every time you look for traffic to steal a car and when you turn the other way and when you turn back to where you were originally looking, new vehicles come(by the way I like to go skydiving in this fucking awesome game.)Good job on telling us how to playing GTA San Andreas.

Got the game, completed the game, love the game, love the quirks, love the dicking about, love the hugeness of it all.

San Andreas. I still play that game. and this makes me laugh haha!
lovefistfury Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
hahaha when i first played the game i wa hooked cause sam jackson was the asshole cop. but i cant get passed the part where you are robbing this cats house and te part where you are chasing this homo on a motorcycle with OG LOC
TheOneButcher Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013
Robbing Use the "Walk" key. There should be a key to walk silently.
Chasing for Loc. Don't shoot, just concentrate on the chase, don't try to be fast, just follow him sedately until he get's off the bike, than cap his head. And "Wrong side of the Tracks"? Park Smoke NEXT to the Circle, get to the Airport. Jump on a car then on the watchman's booth get into the Airport, steal a plane. Get far far north to a little sandy beach north of the abandoned airport, fly low to evade the rockets, get into the amphibious Helicopter Fly it to the Pay and Spray back home, get into another Car and lose the Heat(Or fly it through all the Police Stars in Los Santos.) Park the Heli down next to the tracks then drive Smoke into the Circle. Take the Heli and Pop those Fools. That's the easiest way.

GTA San Andreas is by far the most fun to play on the slapstick-shits-and-giggles factor. Vice City is the game I most fondly remember from my younger years, and the fourth I thought was a bit too gray and dull. Also, Lazlow becomes increasingly less funy throughout the series.

I really loved playing SA. I couldn't play VC longer then 30min. before getting bored. Can't explain why(Maybe because I was born in the 90'^^) I thought the completly weird story was fun to play, alongside with free-roaming.
I think both games are unique in their own way. Vice City with its (apparently) well written srory, SA with its completly weird story and alot more possibilities to do anything you want.
earthgoggles Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011
why the fuck doesn't he just shoot tenpenny as soon as he rolls up on him? or the time he was in the garage. plot hole there.
Team-Friction Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2011
Tenpenny had some messy connections.

That's why him dieing in an accident was perfect for them.

This is funny, and I love the game. Spot on, especially #4, and #7. I can't tell you how many times I had a hard time finding a car in the woods, especially by Back O' Beyond.
DarkSlayerDante Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2011
I modded the shit out of this game. When your main character can create portals with his mind, turn invisible at will, and cause everything that shoots him to randomly explode, you may consider yourself invincible.
wildtraveller Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2011
By the way, I'm REALLY surprised you forgot to mention the Zero missions in San Fierro, ESPECIALLY the "Supply Line" one with the RC plane. *twitch*

Tried to hang yourself with your controller too huh? - _-
wildtraveller Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2011
Even with cheats, that mission was just... ugh! >_<
wildtraveller Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2011
The most fun I had with this game is the super punch cheat and the one cheat that makes the pedestrians everywhere come after you.

there was one good radio station. which one was it? the one that had that "Saaaaaage" lady and played depeche mode and black sabbath, etc. sage will forever be mah hero.
gluhovsky Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think it was Radio-X. But K-Dst sounded also like a good station (classic rock).

Vice City will always be my GTA home. If only because taxi missions are infinitely fun when you do enough of them that they grant you the jumping ability. In a taxi. That's innovative fun right thur.

The third panel is the most true for all, methinks. -nodnod-
AerikCJE Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011
You basically summed up why I love Vice City. That and the numerous radios station filled to the brim with bad, ranging to AMAZING 80's music :P The only I might not like is how drive-by's play out, its rather difficult to pull off unless you're seriously skilled.
Jester-of-the-Clown Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
Of all of these, only 7 was really a problem. I like the RPG element, and it works for me better than some other silly shit- like the instant turret mode outta nowhere at key points in the game.

However, as frustrating as the stats thing is, nothing is as satifying as getting to Hitman level with Sawn Off Shotguns and going to town on the Ballas, or getting to the point where you can ninja your way through any situation with dual silenced pistols, regardless if the enemy has a minigun or a rocket launcher. It's a genuine kind of awesome.

loool epic!
Tengu-Kitsune Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010
Faults? What faults? And it's not like I don't acknowledge all of the things you just pointed out, but didn't you think that Vice City was at least equally farcical? Maybe it's just that I played San Andreas before Vice City and GTA III, but going from the massive open spaces of SA to the much smaller area of Vice City felt like going from a football field to a shoebox. And again, just personal opinion, but I think that the music in San Andreas was at least 90 percent better than the sh*tfest in Vice City. At times, I felt like it was either turn the radio off, or drown in the horrible sea of 80's pop and hair metal.
