My goodness it's hard going back. Lazlow was talking about how he forgot that you have to save pretty much all the time and if you don't... :blink:

Max Payne 3, considering the combat is exactly the same. Gotta practice with free aim, I refuse to play with lock-on.

I never played SA. Downloaded it on PSN (it was cheap) a couple months ago and tried to play. Couldn't. Gameplay and controls haven't aged well.

 

I've played the sh*t out of IV, so I downloaded Max Payne 3 (it was also cheap, and it's the fancy edition with bells and whistles). Enjoyable enough. Even the multiplayer seemed OK, although lots of superomghardcore maxed-out players.

Ironic that people are saying it's not a good idea. I skipped SA and went straight from VC to IV, and man I am loving SA. Beat it and now play it daily just flying around in a Hydra having fun. Can't do that in GTA IV anymore.

We just finished SA in preparation for V. Only reason we went back to prepare was because we wanna compare and contrast when V comes out and notice any nods they throw in there. Ima try to beat 4 in a week. If not oh well. But SA was good.

I'm on the Amphibious Assault mission where you have to get on the boat for Woozie.. man is it tough. I kind of miss that the older games, even if it was because of how difficult aiming/etc was, challenged you to player smarter and use your resources carefully. Especially losing guns when you die, etc.

How could you play SA and expect it to "prepare" you for V?

San Andreas was hands down the best GTA as far as content goes.  It still boggles my mind today that there was so much crammed into A PS2 Gen game.  You just simply can't call yourself a Grand Theft Auto fan without at least playing it through once.  It would be like saying you're a Star Wars fan, but refusing to watch the original trilogy because the special effects weren't as good.  I will say some of the missions are awful (Zero's missions are pretty much the main reason I went through two or three PS2 controllers from 2004 to 2006) but its still a classic.  I just picked it up again the other day and it really makes you appreciate how much GTA has influenced gaming, and how innovative that game was.  I really hope that V is the San Andreas of its generation, because it's nearly 10 years later, and San Andreas is still a blast.

I have a routine that started back when GTA 3 was released. Basically I play the old school GTAs (1, 1969, 2) for about an hour or so and then move onto to all the 3d ones and play those for about 1-2 hours. It's kinda crazy that GTA IV had the main game plus 2 DLC's so that adds time to the overall experience. It's refreshing to see how far GTA has come in just about 1.5 decades :)

I'm avoiding Zeroes missions like the plague but might not have much more of a choice soon.

 

Also what's up with the immediate 5 star wanted level when you go to a certain part of San Fierro? Is that considered a port or something?

I'm fairly sure that you don't have to complete all of Zeroes missions to run through the campaign, only if you want to get 100 percent completion.  and yeah there is a military base in San Fierro, just above the airport.  If you get near it you get stars.

I agree. When I downloaded GTA: SA for Xbox Live I dread playing all of those missions again.

I remember when I first played through those missions way back when.  I believe i was about 14.  After failing the 2nd Zero mission for about the 8th time I screamed "f*ck YOU DAVID CROSS!!!!" And I heard my mom go "David who?"

 

good times :lol:

Don't you have to beat them in order to be able to acquire businesses?

Yeah, once you finish his missions, you earn money over time from his business.
