Does anyone else feel this way? Based on popular opinion on this forum San Andreas has the worst story although I disagree.

But since most people seem to think the story in San Andreas sucked it made me think. Why is the story so hated when it by far has the best selection of characters?

There is no selection of characters from any video game that can match a cast likes San Andreas.

Is the story only hated on because of some of the crazy sh*t CJ does in Las Venturas? The whole area 69 thing, flying school, Mike Torenos crazy missions seemed to draw people away from SAs great story?

What's your thoughts? Agree or disagree San Andreas has the Worst Story but the Best Characters?

I find the game enjoyable above all the others I've played, because there is NO Pressure to do anything.
Most games 'require' some sort of action to be completed before you can even begin to explore. Attempts are usually met with a quick death due to lack of experience, something you don't have in SA.
The Story may be weak, silly, and unrealistic, but that variation make the game playable, and replayable.
It's bright and airy all the time. No gloomy, dark, boring terrain.

Some of the scenarios created by the missions were absurd. Along with that some characters just didn't belong, or were just damn stupid. Toreno and The Truth, come on. And Sweet was dumb as a brick. Plus the idea behind GSF not selling drugs is juvenile. Other than that, the game was definitely fun. Silly as it may have been, it was probably the most fun GTA, at least imo.

I loved The Truth. There needed to be more of him.

The only thing I didn't like was Sweet's obsession with "the hood". That's ALL he cared about.

But in terms of San Andreas having a "bad story"; I liked it. Especially more than GTA III's story.

San Andreas's story is excellent and has been praised highly by critics and fans alike. Some parts of it are nonsense and/or unnecessary, but it all comes together in the end.

That's it? That's the only reason?

You'd be surprised how many people use that exact logic, white and black, as to why they like or dislike characters, particularly CJ. Even the so called nonracists use that reasoning. Pathetic.

That's also the reason why most chicks don't like GTA there is no female protagonists on GTA III era games.
WOOOOOO I just discovered I don't like GTA because there is no Portuguese protagonists. LOLOLOL
Now seriously, the best games it's not about the caracters is about the gameplay, is about being someone else, do stuff you wouldn't normally do. GTA can't be bad because it gives that chance
Well unless you are a "conniving, backstabbing, two-bit thief, convicted psychotic killer, drug dealer, gangbanger" son of b*tch in that case it's just like SIMS for you. LOLOL
