Ok, I'll humour you too.
It seems to be at your convience that you've ignored the thousands of times I've said on this forum that every GTA just gets better and better for me personally, and I still love GTA III. So now that I've disclosed this yet again, going by my logic, try and figure out (if you can) why I don't hate SA.
Just because I grew out of all that "gangsta" crap, doesn't mean I can't still appreciate the game as a whole for what it is.
Well you have a funny way of expressing it. But why do you keep harping on about that "gangsta crap" ?? I just don't get it. GTA is a game about crime, which has always included street gangs or that "gangsta crap" as you call it. That "gangsta crap" is not all about street/ghetto fashion, rap music and urban black slang. It's about drug trade, money, wealth, power, influence, murder and prison.That gangsta stuff you so readily dismiss is a very real and serious form of organized crime in it's own way, something you need to understand.
So does that mean I have to like and enjoy it?
I call it "gangsta crap" because that is my opinion of it. If it offends you so much when I say "gangsta crap", then just ignore my posts. Simple.
I don't have a problem with what you write, I don't get upset over it, I challenge it. I'm not gonna get worked up over a video game, believe me bro, I can think of more important stuff to be concerned out. Over time, I learned to ignore most your posts, because you kept on talking the same old rubbish. I hate SA. I hate gangstas, rap music bla, bla bla. But here we are talking about it again, because I chose to, and recent posts have been the cause of me going here again. If you don't wanna talk about it, just say so and I will stop, no need for you to get upset and shed tears and claim that I'm bullying you.
No you don't have to like it and enjoy it, but it begs the question, why you ever bother playing GTA in the first place. The essence of GTA themes are to do with mainly organized crime and gangs, and that sure enough includes what you call "gangstas", it always has done. The only difference with San Andreas, was that "gangsta crap" was the main theme. Without looking at the "black urban culture" I cannot see how that stuff that CJ did was so different to Tommy, Niko, Claude, Johnny or Luis. They are all murderers, gangsters and thieves. Again, I'm not saying you are racist, but you cannot expect every GTA protagonist to be a white gangster, mafioso, criminal or whatever. You can do think and do as you please in discussing this subject, but you just don't make no sense at all.
Anyway, you just need to accept the fact that you are very much in the minority. SA is probably still the most liked and popular GTA in the series for very good solid reasons, whether you like it or not. And I'm saying this as a Vice City fan, with Tommy Vercetti my favorite GTA protagonist.
