I Think the Streets Of San Fierro is easier to remember but its really boring. (Unless you are playing San Fierro Cops & Crooks on SAMP)
my favorite part from SF was The Gant Bridge that leads you to Bay Town. I Don't know why but i like that bit of the city.
Los Santos is...Uhmm...OK. I Don't like the Gangster Areas & Hate the docks. Downtown is really confusing & i get easily lost. Vinewood & Other Northern Parts of the City is my favorite place to hang. But what i also enjoy is passing the Skyscrapers of Los Santos with an airplane. same like passing the skyscrapers Of Liberty City in GTA IV. but i'm looking forward to Los Santos in GTA V since its bigger.
but i'm disappointed that Venturas is not GTA V. & if Mount Chillad is in GTA V then San Fierro should also appear but i guess Rockstar Had other plans.

It has been quite a while since I got lost around San Andreas. At this point I am able to find my location by landmarks easily. But when I did, I was quite impressed by the lights of Las Venturas. I quite like cities at night. Not the casinos, but neon street lights and traffic lights. Too bad I got killed soon, but at the time I felt like I've discovered and visited a secret land beyond normal reach. And also back then, the game world seemed without limits to me.
However, I dislike both the yellowish color of "heat" visible during daytime in both Los Santos and Venturas, and the color scheme and openness of the desert, which makes me feel exposed, which is why I did not pick it.
I absolutely hate any hills. Why Fierro then? Well, their hills are "flat", and I am often free to choose whether to jump or not. The rich people in Mulholland evidently don't drive any cars, because their homes in the hills are quite unreachable without smashing the car. Those are my least favorite areas.
When I first got the chance to return to Los Santos after handling my business in Fierro, and kiss Denise infront of my bullet proof Tahoma, I felt like returning home. For a moment. But due to mission related activity, I could never secure my status in the city and had to leave, and after Sweet's speech, I felt that the neighborhood is dragging me down.
I don't have any girlfriends in Fierro, which is why I can take as much time as I like in there and in Back of Beyond, without any interruptions, such as calls from girlfriends or gang activity. In Fierro, I feel like I've escaped the passage of time, which game developers often try to forbid (hey, let's make them age and die!, let's put rubberband AI in place!), and felt secure in San Fierro. The place is deep underground.

I do like LV but it kinda puts me off being in the desert and having sand in spots. I only recently unlocked it and it wasn't as big (or at least not as many buildings or skyscrapers) as I thought there would be as a kid (it was fun growing up with the GTA series).
LS is too dirty in some places for me but has a few cool parts (the houses on the mountain north of it were fun the explore around and that mountain west of the airport was really nice).
Liberty City is pretty cool but it seems a bit dark for me. GTA 3 version never appealed to me except at some parts (haven't play too much of it so there may be some others) and GTA 4 was an improvement but sometimes it looked almost completely Gray and my favorite parts weren't there (I know it's a different Universe so Duh!). I haven't unlocked island 3 yet (third big island) so I may have changed my mind then.
SF was and may always be my second favorite (or first in this case) because it's a city but it also has some nice parks, one of my favorite mini-games (the derby or whatever it is south of the city) cool cars, a whole countryside to explore south of it, my favorite airport in the game and two girlfriends It is simple but I like it. It's got something a little charm to it for me.
If Vice City was up there then that would be my pick. The 80's vibe, the beautiful lights, the beach, the cars, the nice blue deadly water, the cool safe houses (wish you could go inside them all because the exteriors on some are nice), I loved driving through the east side of the city in a burrito (I liked that car when I was younger) with 34% health, a mini gun I "found" and a random 1 star wanted level.
EDIT: I forgot this was in the SA section of the forums but you do have LC in there so I thought I would mention VC

btw OP you ask 'Which is your favorite city' ,then why did you add "All of them" option?
All of Them implies entire San Andreas. And I dont see any reason why people wont vote for the entire state instead of individual cities.
btw, do not take it seriously. Its my personal opinion.

I'm curious to see which of the three cities people enjoyed the most. In this poll, for ease, Red County will be included under Los Santos, Whetstone/Flint County under San Fierro and the Desert under Las Venturas.
Which island did you have the most fun doing missions on? Which island do you find yourself freeroaming the most on? Which island was most well detailed? What's your reasoning for the island you chose?
My vote goes to Las Venturas. I love the city itself but the desert has to be my favorite place in all of San Andreas. Driving through all the Desert towns in a Rancher while switching between K-Rose and K-DST are truly the fondest memories of this game for me.
I'm a sucker for Mafia stuff too (If you love Las Venturas, watch the movie Casino), which makes Las Venturas an even more fun city for me. And not to mention what happens when you rack up a gambling debt (I'll spare the spoilers I guess). An incredible little aspect of the game that is easily one of my favorites.
Red County holds a close second to the desert for me. All the different towns, and at night time I often get an eery feeling about the place.
So, which is your favorite city and why?

Las Venturas win by a landslide for me.
As I'm a Vegas enthusiast, Las Venturas is definitely my favorite city in the state. Moreover, R* did a great job recreating the districts surrounding the Strip. I'd have just preferred to be able to visit more casinos (especially the Camel Toe's/Luxor IRL), but for a 2004, it's already very good. An HD version of the city would be mind blowing !
Otherwise I like Flint County, especially Back O Beyond and Whetstone (especially the Shady Creek).

tie between Los Santos/Las Venturas
if Vice City had a better map i would have def liked it the most

I find myself lucky from never having to conclude as "what the heck, the portrayal of the city and many tiny details suck more when compared to their real counterparts", since in real life I've never been to any of these cities to review so closely, and so for me these are just as good as the fictional ones created by the designers through their imagination who have put up a lot of efforts ( considering the hardware, and tech limitations ) to make it interesting enough, and engaging for playing through the game.

I spent most of my time in San Fierro I think. But I did like them all, and even the little sh*t poke rural towns. It was a great map.

Definitely San Fierro for me. I love the big city feel it gives me. It could also be nostalgia for me, and the fact that it was a HUGE breath of fresh air after the country missions after escaping Los Santos. I also love the Pleasure Domes (especially the inside of them. I don't remember if you can go inside or if you can see it during the cutscenes, but I love it haha).
Las Venturas is a very close second to me though, borderline tying with San Fierro. I like all of the cities a lot to be honest.

I like San Fierro because it feels so diffrent to the other two cities. The problem with GTA V is that I don't feel as though I'm travelling long distance but because there was a diffrence in the people, cars and scenery it made the map seem much bigger.

I love all of them and it's really hard to choose, but my favourite has to be Los Santos.
Posted 10 November 2014 - 04:12 PM
Since then, ive changed to San Fierro.generally because id like to visit San Francisco some time, and also because i like the Triads/ Chinatown, the roads that lay out the city, and because in my opinion it has some really fun missions that take place there. (Which does NOT include snail trail!)
Posted 10 November 2014 - 08:14 PM
Probably Los Santos because that's where everything is set. San Fierro would be second because it's just a nice bright city. Driving over the Golden Gate and going through the town. Something about it feels like it's in a world of it's own. Plus I think it had some of the best missions of the game.

Las Venturas. I spent so much time just driving around the freeway loop there.

San Fierro,Hashbury(or something like that),because of that hippy/gay flags and look of county.
Posted 22 November 2014 - 11:28 PM
I like San Fierro. It has a cool racing vibe, a realistic setting, nice roads, and a beautiful suburb (Bayside).
Favorite district of it? Well, oddly enough, Id say my favorite district is in Las Venturas (Prickle Pine)
Posted 24 February 2015 - 05:08 AM
Las Venturas. My favorite parts of Las Venturas is the Pirate Ship and the Casino.

I just loved the atmosphere there, especially around the Grove Street/Ganton area. It feels like 'home' when you go down there. Also I love the change of atmosphere in the city. For example, you've got the ghetto, then you've got the docks/industrial areas, then your downtown shopping districts and then the beach.
I liked San Fierro when I used to install car mods as the Wheel Arch Angels was down there. And the Wang Cars showroom is a good addition.
