I loved San Andreas; three cities, the introduction of countryside/desert, loads of cool new features and side activities etc etc.
But part of me now wishes the game never released, nor even existed.
Why, you ask?
Well because ever since SA released back in 2004, it seems to have created a vast array of fan(boy)s who just can't seem to let go and move on.
First, GTA IV released, and the amount of bitching and whining that followed was phenomenal. Yes, IV had many features cut from it, but what the whiners could never understand, was that it was R*'s first full game on the current gen systems, and they were in the early stages of experimenting with RAGE.
I still thought IV was an excellent game. The upgrade in graphics was great, and the new euphoria physics were extremely fun, not to mention the great story and interesting characters. But the SA fanboys looked over all of that, and were angry because they couldn't get haircuts or tattoos....
Now V has released.
R* were now more familiar with the hardware of the current gen systems so could do alot more with their games. They heard the complaining surrounding IV and did something about it in regards to bringing back features like car customisation, tattoos, haircuts, a huge choice of clothes, planes etc, as well as adding a huge amount of features and activities, not to mention a MASSIVE map.
But no, this wasn't enough to satisfy the stubborn SA fanboys...
And this is why I sometimes wish San Andreas never existed. Like I've said a hundred times on here, every GTA just gets better and better for me personally, and I genuinely feel sorry for anybody who feels otherwise.
If it wasn't for San Andreas, there'd be nowhere near this level of bitching and whining.
