I'm surprised I haven't posted a proper reply here. I posted in many other similar topics though.

 

My most memorable moments in SA:

- Tenpenny dropping you off in Angel Pine. Great storywriting, had a huge impact on me (a wee teenager back then), leaving a bustling city behind and starting a new life in a quiet village

- Looking for myths. There were too many to mention, but I had amazing time looking for them.

- Approaching SF for the first time in the hippie van.

- Driving a pick up truck through the countryside, empty road ahead with "I love a rainy night" on a radio, and it actually raining

- Sunset over (or rather under) Oram bridge. Spectacular.

 

I bought myself PS2 the other week together with a collection of GTAs; and here I was saying for many years that I will never buy a console. My only purpose of buying it was to re-live my first moment breathing in the hot LS air. So far it's been going great - I'm running around, doing odd missions, but mainly looking for tags and spraying them. SO far found 50 out of 100, but discovered so many places I forgot about. All that in a glorious orange evening glow.

Man when Tenpenny dropped me at angel pine and he told me:in the middle of f*cking nowhere! I actually felt it. The whole section between LS and SF actually made me FEEL I'm lost and in middle of f*cking nowhere. No video game has ever done this to me.

-Driving at full speed listening to ''A Horse with No Name'' on the highway.

-Having a brawl with the police at the countryside gas station while they drive into the pumps.

-Driving the train full speed. Watching it come off the tracks. Making a barricade of cars and driving into them.

 

I thought about buying myself a PS2 just to play some old GTA games and few other favorite games. I don't even know if I should get a refurbished, fat or slim (I think I had the fat) buy used or new. Any ideas?

Man I'm going through the game for the "I don't know anymore" th time and hearing the SA theme with the 'mission passed' sign just feels like home. It's so nostalgic. 

@flgta

Just buy the trilogy on PS4. it was one of the best decisions I made. Bought them all for 15$ on sale and been enjoying the heck out of it.

San Andreas' theme, Vice City and lll are all nostalgia lane for me.

 

Man, that's a great deal. I guess I'm a bit of an old game snob and want the experience of the feel of PS2 game, plus it had Vigilante 8. I literally kept the original Vice City and playbook since 2002. 🙃 I'll consider a PS4 esp for first person.

I usually flip between San Andreas and Redemption when defining the peak of my Video Games experience. Surely I played much more advanced and expanded games after San Andreas, and V is the one to mention here, but it's more about the complete Experience package, including things like my age. If I was as old as I'm now and SA has just released, it'd surely not have the same effect on me years down the road, and most likely I won't spend the same amount of time exploring it. Age is the primary difference, and that's of course what nostalgia is about. 

 

Time moves on ... and we also move on.

My brother had a slim one, I bought a fat one. Fat one makes way too much fan noise compared to the slim, but other than that I have not experienced any major issues.

 

One thing to consider is that it only supports a small resolution, so if you have a large TV you'll need to sit quite far otherwise it will be uncomfortably pixelated. I'm shortsighted, and sitting 2 metres away is fine.

Yeah similar to mine since I have a flat screen TV. But mine has a sh*t load of settings that make the resolution just a little better and not as pixled. I have some color changes as options between Cool, Normal, or Warm and playing SA with Warm settings while the in-game clock is at 21:00 Is so gorgeous :inlove: It's beyond the orange atmosphere. Just right. I guess it all depends on which type of TV you have.

 

About the original Fat PS2 indeed it's pretty loud. Right after 2008 I remember I started noticing a loud noise coming from it. Bought my PS2 slim around 2009 and It's currently the one I still own and use. Still works like a charm :^:

Lol can't help but think back to San Andreas whenever I hear about Big Smokes order. 

Really enjoyed driving around listening to the radio. Missions where fun and a good story. Despite some people saying it wasn't good. Sure it got pretty wild with the some stuff and it was a little out there at times, but it was really fun either way. Its always nice to return to Grove Street once in awhile.

I have a photo from way back when that had a shot of my old PS2. It was the fat one. I would be wary about buying used, though maybe I can find a refurbished one at a store. The price would be paying for a ''classic'' if I bought new. Good point about having a large TV and with the older graphics/resolution. Oh well. I just think having older games are better played on older consoles, IMO. It's the experience and of course, nostalgia.

Back when Youtube was taking its first tentative steps, I remember that my initial experience with the site was all about San Andreas videos. I always liked stunt compilations the most, being awestruck with the things some people were doing by using mods. So happy to find out that this one in particular is still around.

The creepy urban legends of the game, of course, gained a lot of attention back then too. I remember being pretty creeped out by some vids that were edited to make it look like Bigfoot, Leatherface, or a ghost was really there. I'm... not looking back at those quite so fondly. 😛

I used to mod the sh*t out of this game back in 2004-5-6 whatever it was. Since then I kept moving on with each new game, until GTA V has become so damn overplayed I can navigate the map with my eyes closed.

 

Low and behold a local store was throwing away copies of SA for PS3... I figured, why not? I always modded and cheated on the PC, let's give it a crack.

 

It's amazing how f*cking awesome this game still is. 

 

No reason for poisting this, no rewards but your time wasted reading this.

 

After all this time.... it still kicks ass!

Hmmm nice bike

There's no such thing as a perfect game, but San Andreas comes close. The game didn't need mods to have fun in it. I'll definitely stick to playing my original Xbox copy though, since it's a shame that the digital releases have missing tracks due to copyright issues, and the mobile version is just a complete f*ck-up.

Any tips on how to make this happen again? I want to try this myself now.

No way to replicate it unless you staged it at multiplayer or something, getting a plane to spawn with that kind of timing is down to major luck and then some.
