Welcome to San Andreas, 2012. a state where anything is possible, the politicians are corrupt, and the rich and poor will do anything and everything in the pursuit of power and status... and meth.
you play as Frank Morgan. Shot, Robbed of his fortune and left to die by his own friends after trying to pursue a new life in his hometown of San Fierro. He wakes in a hostipal in Downtown San Fierro, heavily in debt and blackmailed by a secret goverment Agency to do thier bidding. Frank goes on a violent rise to fame, power and vengance. on the way he must choose between loyalties, question his morals and answer the question, "can you really achieve the american dream".
Set in Modern day San Andreas. The Game introduces a Number of Themes, Including:
The Pursuit of Power and Wealth - Everywhere you look, from the political system, to the movie industry, to the criminal underworld. Everybody wants power and to hold on to it forever. and some people are prepared to lie, steal and manipulate to get it. This is the Main Motivation of the main Antagonists
The Drug Industry - Drugs are the biggest economy in San Andreas, Legal or Illegal. from Painkillers to Weed, LSD and Even Meth many aspiring criminals are looking at this trade to increase their influence. hobos will beg for money for drugs, you help a number of dealers during the story, and the New Drug-Dealing side missions are back and better than ever.
Morals - Frank Constantly has to make choices through the game that affect his Karma and how people portray him, whether to go the peaceful route or just go on a massacre. Likewise he has to face the consequences of his actions, people may fight him on the street, friends may talk to him differently and so on.
Choice - in almost every aspect in the game you are given a wide range of choices, you are given many opportunities to complete missions, you have a choice to intervene in random events or just walk on by, and the storyline has many different paths to take.
