San Andreas is the greatest GTA game and more fun than GTA 4 and GTA 5. The only issue people had with GTA SA is that it had a gang theme and the main character is black, which is why some people's egos could never accept that it is/was the best GTA. The greatest GTA being a "black game" eats some people alive. I always said that if CJ were white and in the mob, people wouldn't even dispute GTA being the GOAT. And people who think one game is better than another because of graphics are "new gamers". Anyone who has been gaming since the 90's [the pre-graphic whore gaming era] would NEVER rank a game higher than another because of its graphics.
Sounds like the person here with the ego here is you, but that doesn't surprise me. In the almost 6 years I've been here the majority of your posts I've seen are borderline dictating. You don't seem to possess any ability what so ever to accept everyone has an opinion and shock, horror not everyone loves SA as much as you do.
As someone said above GTA V has a black protagonist also and speaking of which while I don't rank Franklin quite as fondly as say Niko or Tommy he's still a far better character than CJ ever was. Atleast he doesn't cry like a bitch everytime something goes wrong. That was my main issue with CJ. He was too much of a child and an unconvincing douchebag.
I've been playing video games since 1990 (probably when you were still sucking tits to get fed) and I find graphics are a bonus more than anything, but that's not the reason I find GTA V (and GTA IV for that matter) better games than SA.
I still think SA is all quantity and hardly any depth. It has a sh*tload of features that are as shallow as puddle after a storm. IMO most of the features are sh*t and the few good ones were ripped straight from GTA III and VC anyway.
So no it doesn't make any difference if the protagonist was white and in the mob I'd still feel like it has a joke of story, boring/overrated countryside/desert and features that I largely don't care about.
Does that make you happy?
