San Andreas Nostalgia!

Recommended Posts

Dee.

..In a good way! This may be R*'s most ambitious game to date. What they managed to pull off running on a PS2 is nothing short of a miracle. Havent played the game since 2015 and I recently started a new game. Theres so much to do and so much to see. I guess this is a SA appreciation thread ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

What is your favorite thing to do in this awesome game?

Starting a new game is always so special. All of a sudden there's so much ahead of you to do. As for my favourite thing? It's more of a combination of things. I don't quite go for the starter save but I definitely get a bulk of the side missions out of the way. It was a great way to get reacquainted with the city and earn some extra cash early on. Don't bother even buying weapons because you'll end up with nothing by the time you reach the countryside. Save it for properties and businesses later on.

This is back in the day when R* weren't greedy f*cks with D*ckTwo. Back when they made gta games with heart. IV was their last grate game imo. V was good up until their online sh*t. Then at the end R* was f*cked with T2 making their moves with the modding.

 

 

OT: What's my favorite thing to do in SA?

 

Just play it...that's all. Playing this in 2017 and will for years to come. SA was the sh*t for it's time in 2004 and still is. Makes you realize R* weren't always the way they were as they are today. T2 made them worse in a whole other way.

Femme Fatale

My favorite, and most nostalgic GTA game. Here's how it went.

 

Hello darlings! This thread is dedicated to sharing your good or bad memories of playing GTA...SA is definitely the most nostalgic for me, mainly because it's the first "official" GTA game that I played...And despite the fact that the disc is more used up and worn out than my asshole, I still keep it safely in its box, and in my game drawer...Why? Because of all the fond memories I have of playing it...And it happened during summer vacation, so I didn't need to worry about homework, or my parents telling me to go to sleep because it's a school day tomorrow...This was also the same summer that I got my first computer(ergo, my introduction to internet), and started listening to extreme metal...So the whole day I was playing the game, looking for random sh*t on the internet(most of it related to SA and R*, and doing research on extreme metal), and listening to the aforementioned music while taking notes on its sub-genres and their respective bands...Yep, it was the best summer vacation I ever had, so what stories do you guys have?

As for my favorite thing to do, cause havoc with the hydra, gamble, drive through the whole state, the little things, you know? :)

Driving a train across the whole state for the sub-mission. Even if the job is very easy with the passengers' train and doesn't give anything fancy it's very agreable. I love trains in general and seeing the landscapes of the countryside, the desert, the lights changing with the day time, the sound of the train, it reminds me good memories.

Back in the day GTA San Andreas was way ahead of its time. A whole state recreated with 3 cities and nearly a dozen small towns and ghost towns. Couldn't believe what I saw! I remember the first time I played it. Such a different vibe than that of GTA Vice City but with its own charm. It took me a few days to get used to the movement controls (cars steered more slowly in comparison to those in GTA VC) but after I got that under control I fell in love with the game. I still play it every now and then and I got to say, there is no game in the world that can give me the same feeling as GTA SA still does.

To be honest, I wish for R* to do one thing only; recreate GTA SA with the GTA 5 graphics and release this game again. Man.. would that be awesome.

Playing the vigilante sub-mission on a HPV-1000.

 

The bikes' handling is much better than in Vice City, with the code to explode the vehicles on touch, an invincible CJ, infinite ammo for my SMG and minigun (among others), nearly empty roads and the alternations between cities and countryside this job is very pleasant although it takes a longer time than in the other episodes.

Playing around with cheats, using the flying cars cheat with a tank, indestructible CJ, like Superman with all the bullets bouncing off him. Radio X and KDS-T playing when flying the Hydra. Good times playing this game.

Everything is random in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, Thanks to it RenderWare engine this game successfully always make me surprised.

For example:

If you're on the middle of El Castillo del Diablo you might see a Ranger chasing random car/bikes, Random Rustler plane crashing into arches and (might false) ghosts.

That's why i relly love Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. I still have 1.0 SA on PC and i consistently making videos of it.

Mike Andrews' commercial. I love the way it caricatures the right-wing mentality and the way Andrews speaks compared to his speech's content, it's just so epic. It's my favorite advert in all the GTA's I have.

Los Santos, specially downtown and glenpark surroundings. Love driving like a maniac in LS with an infernus equipped with nos, shooting down tons of helis, 6 star mess, riding in BMX, increasing stats, grinding criminal rating, I love so many things about this game ❤.

Same. That always was a grate feeling. Whats even better is that i created Grove territory in all cities :D LS obviously SF, and LV. So grove controls certain parts in all three cities. SA is still on my top favorite gta's.

I should replay GTA SA again soon.

 

Damn, what a masterpiece. Infinite replayability.

 

I miss all those old days. Using jumpjet jet cheat and flying recklessly all the time.

 

Too bad both IV and V lagged behind GTA SA in terms of game content and replayability.

I didn't take over all the territories because I won't have no one to drive by at. It would get boring with no enemies gang. I would let them keep like 2 or 3 territories. Edited by 4nsmiley

we don't give a f*ck about GTA 6

 

we want GTA San Andreas 2

 

Ryder and Smoke were back in the story and apologize to CJ for betraying the grove.

 

Vario los aztecas are no longer beefing with grove street.

 

Los santos stays the same but it's changed

 

The game's action is now in 2003.

 

Let's say that, in GTA 3 Catalina low-key survived jumping out the helicopter in water

 

Darkel will also return and give us crazy missions, and ofcourse. He will be redisigned in the style of SA. For example a mission is that we gotta get a RC car and destroy 5 ballas cars.

 

There will be a mission from Caesar to fly in Vice City and clean Diaz's crib. Then it will become a safe house.

 

Liberty City and Vice City will also be cities where you gonna have missions.

 

You will be able to do ilegall street races in VC, LC & SA, but first you can buy your car and customize it yourself with nitro, tuning parts etc.

 

Sentinel XS, Deluxo, etc. all cars from GTA 3 & VC will be restored and even you can have 2 models.

 

III Infernus

VC Infernus

SA Infernus etc.

 

in the style of SA and same models from vc & iii

 

you can wash your car and even rob houses and own them.

 

Give big smoke's house an interior

 

B-Dup & big bear will be main characters.

 

new gang - Front Side Gangsidaz

 

Alcatraz will be restored

 

Fenton, Roller, Float all the unknown removed vehicles will be restored

 

if you find a Psycho Ped you'l get 100$ award

 

On a mission on Liberty City, Shoreside Valley "Not Enough Pennies for Skiing", with Cesar & Ryder as backup you need to kill Tenpenny and Pulaski, all his guards and save hernandez & catalina.

 

Mission fails : Cesar dies, Ryder dies, Wasted, Busted, Catalina dies, hernandez dies, Tenpenny goes away

 

Mission on Liberty City, Portland : Green Sabre True Color, you have to steal the green sabre with b-dup as backup and bring it to Sweet's garage.

 

Mission on San Andreas : You have to steal one of Vagos' "Vagos Hermes", bring it to the bomb shop and bring it back to the restaurant so you will kill the vago. Similar to "Mike Lips Last Lunch" mission from GTA 3.

 

Another Darkel mission, you have to plant a bomb with a RC bandit on a school bus, then, take it to the bomb-shop and put it back, activate the bomb and darkel will also activate the bomb so he can take revenge of schools (since he hated them as a kid) and i do too lol

 

Unwanted Memories : Given by Madd Dogg, you'l have to take-over Cartel mansion and now you'l own it, and then you'l have to chase Lil Weasel (balla member) that will steal a Sabre Turbo and roam around liberty, as a backup, you will have Sweet drive-bying the balla

 

Another mission : Grove around-the-world, you'l have to take 3 territories along liberty city and you'l own them. That will enable gang wars around Vice City/Liberty City/San Andreas

 

Doberman will be exactly like the beta, you'l have to kill Poncho.

 

Snake-car : You'l have a 6 doored gang rancher with the same handling as the banshee and you'l have to drive-by and takeover 7 territories across Liberty City, Vice City and of course San Andreas. The people you'l take in the 6 doored- rancher, Catalina, Sweet, Ryder, Cesar, B-Dup, CJ, with Big Smoke as a driver.

 

Another mission "Vice Liberty", you'l play as 3 characters (CJ,Cesar and Big Bear) and plant boms on all police stations.

 

"Doc-G" you'l have to help Doc-G, a rapper, to be famous, so for that, you need to steal from Vinyl Store 5 discs with rap instrumentals and give them back to Doc-G's house in San Andreas, Grove Street (next to CJ's house).

 

after that mission....

 

Big Smoke calls you for help to takeover his palace, because Ballas planted bombs and locked him inside. You'l have to take the Swat tank to break the walls and go to floor 4 to save big smoke, then he will say that he will re-make the palace soon and give it as your safe place.

The fact that a 2004 game can include a huge amazing map, the best gameplay, kickass missions, memorable characters, an excellent protagonist, a fantastic story, tons of side-activities, a superb soundtrack and a great theme.
