I know this is my first post, so Hi.
I've beat GTA SA more than ten times now, on both PC and PS2. I did first play GTA SA when it was "new" in either 2004/5 as I had an older teenage friend (I was in elementary school at the time) who let me play his copy sometimes.
I've gotten into modding a bit, over the years I have tried different mods, but now I am trying to keep my game accurate to the 1992 time period. I only have a few mods now:
1. Hot Coffee
2. Nirvana T-shirt (Nirvana was big then, plus "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was out in 1991 on the "Nevermind" album)
3. I changed the text of "User Track Player" to "Nirvana - Nevermind" and put all the tracks from the Nevermind album in my User Tracks
4. Taxi Mod
5. Gas Station mod (real gas stations)
6. 7-11 Mod (turns 24-7 into 7-11).
I was only born in 1995, so I cannot personally vouch for the accuracy of the game to the time period of 1992, but from what I have seen as in news reports from 1992 and pictures from 1992, of cities, cars, etc it seems to be pretty accurate.
Obviously, a lot of the cars in the game are older, and from the 80's but my family drives a 2006 toyota so, I accept the fact that there's gonna be vehicles from a wide range of years.
Plus, this photo of a parking lot is form 1992, and I do see a lot of similar looking vehicles to the one's in-game:
If any of you are older and remember the year 1992, would you say the portrayal is accurate?
