Ok listen. First off yea, they said its not based off of real life gangs and sh*t but you can obviously tell LIES. Ha, and no crips do not often wear green in fact they have a set called Grape st Crips where they wear purple. Bloods do. Bloods have a set called Lime st Piru where they wear green. Its so obvious to tell Bloods are in fact GSF and Crips are Ballas. Real niggas should know they sets yall gamehead idiots x_x

[*] Pasadena Latin Kings (PLK) are a predominately Mexican-American street gang in the City of Pasadena, California. The PLK was formed by Jose Luis “Snapper” Torres-Sanchez (1971 – 1993) around 1987 -

[*] Colours are Black and Gold.

 

Be aware that the Game is a Fantasy. Proven by many culture and physical errors committed by the Writer and Publisher.

Example: In Las Venturas there is an "Estate Office" should be a Rental Agency. Walk-in Vans with hinged doors, Buses with Left Side Doors.

Nothing in the Games HAS to be perfectly based on Reality. It is even a possibility that the Writer/Designers have no detailed knowledge of Gang Activities in the U.S. and thus are basing their interpretation on Movie depictions with a smattering of the local Gangs in Great Britain.

Just in case it hasn't been said:

Ganton=Compton.

Compton is Crips territory.

GSF=Crips.

 

 

My opinion.

I agree with what your saying. They used a vague understanding of california gangs and ran with it.

Altough the Pasadena latin Kings thing is kinda pushin it. as Pasadena is outside of LA and doesnt show up in GTA SA. there are other gangs in LA that wear Gold besides them. like Barrio Pobre in Long Beach

Bloods came out from Pirus, and many other gangs. They were formed to get more protection against the crips.

It's stupid to think that both gangs will be exactly as it's real life counter-parts. It's just a "based" from thing.

EDIT: << merged "new" topic into existing topic on gangs >>

 

 

Alright I see a lot of different threads about which sets in SA are based of the real sets in L.A. County. Here's what I believe

Grove Street=Compton Piru/Inglewood Families/Hoover Street

Rollin Heights Ballas=Rollin 30s,Rollin 60s,East Coast Neighborhood.

Kilo Tray Ballas=Eight Trey Gangstas,Grape Street.

Front Yard Ballas=School Yard,Front Street,Front Hood,Grave Yard.

Temple Drive Ballas=Venice Shoreline

Los Santos Vagos=18th Street,Florencia,Longos.

Varrio Los Aztecas=Compton Varrio T-FLATS,Compton Varrio 70s,Compton Varrio 155.

SF Rifa=Norte


What do you guys think?

Wow, it's simple, rockstar mixed it all up on purpose.

Grove street is grape street
Moved them to Compton, instead of watts , but watts towers are close to their hood in game.

Wash, rise, repeat.

They mixed colors on purpose too so dumb asses could claim real sh*t in game. So, grove street should wear purple but rockstar gave their enemies purple. Get it?

Ballas are Crips and Families are Bloods. In real life you have the 103rd Ballas they Grape Street Watts Crip and you have Inglewood Families. And Aztecas are Compton Varrio sets and Vagos are like East L.A. Dukes or Primera Flats in East Los Angeles. Also Front Yard in East Los Santos is 1st Street EC NHC.

Wish I would've knew about this post sooner. I'm explaining the origins of the GTA SA gangs in my forum. For example, Grove St Families stand for Piru Street Bloods. Though Piru and Bloods is two different sanctions but under the same kind. Kind of like Relatives or Cousins. Piru being the first before Bloods. The Pirus started in Compton Ca in Piru st. Sounds familiar huh? Yup. I'm from the city of Inglewood aka Idlewood. I just used my common since and my eyes opened to another world of San Andreas. I started to see familiarlarities in the city. Even certain houses and corners. That's when I knew Grove Street was Piru street in Compton Ca aka Ganton Sa. The gang that resides there is the mecca, the original, the starters of the defense against the crips's alliance. The West Side Piru. That told me that the Original Grove Street Families was West Side Groves. Then it made even more since like "Oh so that means the Families in Grove Street Families means the Bloods." The 2nd alliance against the Crips. So u got Grove Street niggas and u got Family niggas. This is not all I know but the rest is on my forum.

Aye bro. < no advertising >  U got it wrong bro.
Grove St is Piru St the West Side Pirus which makes the GSF West Side Groves.
That's in Compton Ca. The real life counterpart of Canton Sa.
