GTA San Andreas Stories: A never-released SA prequel

Recommended Posts

871761

My third topic here. I've heard sometime ago about some GTA III era prequels, the famous GTA Stories series. As everyone knows:

 

GTA III was released in 2001, and it is set in 2001.

GTA Vice City was released in 2002, and it is set in 1986.

GTA San Andreas was released in 2004, and it is set in 1992.

 

Now, after 2005, the GTA prequel series started.

 

GTA Liberty City Stories was released in 2005, and it is set in 1998.

GTA Vice City Stories was released in 2006, and it is set in 1984.

 

After that, GTA III era officially ended, and HD era started with the release of GTA IV, in 2008.

 

One of things I don't understand is: Why GTA San Andreas didn't had a right to a GTA Stories prequel?

 

I heard that SAS wasn't released and will not ever be released, probably due to the fact of SA map files not fitting on a UMD, a PSP media disc.

 

If SAS would be relased, which differences would occur on SA map?

 

And which year it would be set? 1990? 1989? 1988? Or maybe 1987, the year of the death of CJ father, Brian Johnson?

Right. But the problem is that I couldn't find it on YouTube.

Usually the story games would be set 2 years before so would SAS take place in LC?

I am actually curious to see how R* would go about this if they were to do a SA Stories. I mean I believe in their quote of the many different "universes" they had left the door open for a return for the 3d era. If they were to do so I just wonder what engines they would use, how detailed would the graphics be, and what the differences would be. I am all for this BTW. It would be a bit of a gift to the spirits of GTA's past.

It would be nice to have a SAS, but in my opinion, it should have another protagonist, not CJ . Something like a Varrio's OG, friend of Cesar Vialpando and Jose, safehouse would be somewhere near Unity Station, an oceanic parked near the safehouse, the first mission being the return of the protagonist from Mexico and so on.

I have been thinking about this, and they simply did not want to do one because they already went on development for GTA IV. A GTA San andreas stories was not needed actually, we already got that DVD special thingy if I remember correctly

I think it would be set 5 years before the events of 1992, because CJ says "After five years on the east coast, it was time to go home." so it would be Carl Johnson in Liberty City.

San Andreas is the greatest video game of all time.

 

If I ever invent a time machine I will go back and force them to build San Andreas Stories

 

...

 

 

Damn. I guess I didn't.

Would a good choice for the main character be Cesar Vialpando http://gta.wikia.com/Cesar_Vialpando

 

He has his own gang and didn't really accociate with Grove Street and cj until the events of San Andreas in 1992 so setting the game in 1990 with that character would make sense.We could then see how he formed the gang and became the leader. This would create a new storyline open up unique missions and for a bonus to celebrate the release of the game Rockstar could add a mission where you fly to vice city and see some of the changes like they did with San Andreas and cj going back to Liberty City to wipe out the forellis.

Rockstar officially said that he will never release a SAS. Because that's the reason they had put an introduction video in the first place. Or else they wold have had to make the pltos and other stuff again.

just letting you know, all of San Andreas could fit on a UMD, except the Audio. Without Audio, San Andreas PC is only 1.4gb.

Even though I feel that "The Introduction" fulfills that need, I am interested in what the story, and environment of SA would have been like. No doubt, it would have elements of the growing decline of The Families gang in the city of Los Santos, and it would have also covered the theme of rising police corruption, in particular of the CRASH unit.

I know if they released an SAS the Special Vehicles in it would be insane. San Andreas and Liberty City Stories, hell, even Vice City Stories, have SO many Special Vehicles.

 

Furthermore, the Stories GTA Games have more features which save in Garages unlike how they are eaten in III, VC, and SA. Properties like Heavy, Pop Proof, Tip Proof, Water Proof, Unique Handling, and Permanent Color.

 

It'd be amazing if this ever got released, but it won't happen. Long live the classics (III, VC, SA, LCS, VCS).

There were other protagonists in LCS and VCS, should be the same in SAS.

If San Andreas stories was set in 1987, then there would be changes.

 

1. The Mako Span used to be a pair of Truss Bridges (it looks like the fallow bridge) before the current bridge was built around 1989-90, prior to the old span's demolition in 1988.

 

2. The collapsed Freeway near Garver Bridge was supposed to be a part of a now-cancelled freeway, and wasn't built in 1987

 

3. Hunter Quarry had started operations in 1987, so the change may be noticeable

 

4. The Pilson and Blackfield Intersections used to be trumpet interchanges, prior to them being rebuilt to what they look like in 1992.

 

5. The Four Dragons Casino had just started Construction in 1987.

 

6. The Los Santos Highway between the airport, and Red County exits was under a major-reconstruction.

Hi, would you like to elaborate? I would like to hear more about this. :)

Is there any other reason you play GTA other than for the Special Vehicles?
