11 years ago on this day, one of the greatest games ever saw the light of the day.

Happy Birthday SA. Continue being a masterpiece :)

Damn, right at 12:00. Now that's commitment.

 

I have to say, for an eleven year-old game, it holds up well. It's given us standards in the GTA community, and in the gaming community in general, that we still hold to this day. I'm constantly finding new things about this game that I didn't know before, as well as other GTA games. For as much as I hate on this game, it was revolutionary. It arguably set the high bar that GTA is known for. This game has given me so much fun.

 

Happy Birthday.

Oh yay!
Happy Birthday GTA San Andreas. :)

This date highlights the birth of the greatest GTA in the series, and brings back all the memories of going into details about the previews, and impatiently wanting to play waiting for the release date. SA blew up all my expectations of a GTA game across the board. No GTA can match the excitement of installing a copy of GTA for the first time, and waiting for the game to begin. SA consumed my life for many months to come, and still enjoy playing this classic immensely.
IV and V failed to even come close to that experience.
The story in GTA SA is the best, an entartaining one on the part of Rockstar, as it is made up of the best engrossing characters, action packed moments, chock full of surprises and events that provide a fantastic balance of mission variety and humour. The amount of fun outside of the story including the hilarious peds and the world around CJ are second to none when it comes to the enjoyment of screwing around and exploring, engaging in various activities, playing the races ( my favorite and the best in the entire series ), and just everything else.
GTA SA has been the most entertaining GTA both in and outside the story.

@ lil weasel - please, don't be so quick to lock the thread again.

yeah okay sure whatever helps you sleep at night

But let's not let opinions get in the way of the birthday of one of the best games ever made, and arguably the best game available on the PS2.
Happy Birthday!

It's great and entertaining, but definitely not the best.

 

Anyways, Happy Birthday, SA! It's one of the few titles that never get old to me, no matter how much time I spend on them (and I don't even consider myself much of a gamer) :)

That's what I said an entertaining one and I find that factor enough to consider it to be the best. If you have issues than kindly mind your own business and stick to your own opinion.
SA story is the best for a GTA game. I don't understand why people can't allow the SA fans to appreciate the story easily without being seen as committed some crime.

The RPG elements proved nothing short of revolutionary for a sandbox game like SA in the series, as it wasn't just cosmetic on the surface but made an impact on the people, around CJ and certain activities that you play. It opens up experimenting with the protagonist more around as a playable character than just see him on the story cut scenes delivering his lines. SA gave so much control over the protagonist that I still am bewildered why Rockstar didn't follow up on the cool concept with more stuff like that.
Here are some of the many customer reviews about this impressive game. Brings back all those memories of reading the critical appreciation the game received and all the gaming craze that took it over the forums everywhere during release, literally made a massive impact as far as open world genre goes.

It's just that it's very subjective as to which GTA has the best storyline. For me, it's GTA III, for others it may be Vice City or GTA V, and in this forum specifically, everyone seems to think GTA IV is the greatest thing in the world. What you're saying is that San Andreas has the best storyline, period, but personally, I disagree with that. Although I like the story, it's my least favorite storyline in the series. It's just too unrealistic and unbelievable for me compared to other titles, and the ghetto theme was not my favorite. Personally, I loved pretty much everything else about the game -- the world, the music, the characters, the gameplay, the storyline I'm currently bashing (although not as much as I like the storylines of other GTA's). If you put "in my opinion" somewhere, in my opinion, nobody would bother saying this or that isn't so (like when saying how much GTA V sucks in every other comment) :)

 

Anyways, let's not fight in this thread. It's supposed to be a birthday party :catloaf:

Happy birthday!
Wow I was 8 or 7 when I first started playing it(sadly that was 2008 and I never could play it on ps2). Many memories are coming from then. Playing samp with friends, waiting for mod packs wich we were thinking are whole new GTA SA games. And my excitment when I first saw the game from a friend who had it. The feeling was like "I have to play this one". You may blame me for this, but I use a cracked copy(that was the way I knew when I started gaming, things are a bit difficult with money in my country).

But yeah, this is a great game, wich you can play for hours, no matter if modded or not. I do not think of leaving this game and even if I do, probbaly I will still come back to it or just continue playing it sometimes, but for now I do not plan to leave this masterpiece!

Eleven years and people still playing R*, do something for this game. Wich of your games lasted that long?

By best, I didn't imply that it's the best in the series, and certainly do not mean objectively better than any other stories, but personally, a unique and an entertaining one to me for a game like GTA. I see III, VC and SA equally the best 3D era entertaining stories of my childhood times.
That's. All.

And yes, celebration time. I found this nice pic.
