is SA the Most overrated game in history?

Overrated or not, San Andreas is still a fun game to play. You can't deny that.

I agree on SA once being a hell of a funny game to play but not anymore, IMO at least. I admit that apart from VCS this is the only 3D era GTA where i had most fun. Hundreds and hundreds of hours of pure grade A fun. But then HD era came out with great IV and i just leted go SA. And i admit i just can`t go play it again nowadays and having fun at it. If i go play it after prolong playing of HD era than i go literaly sick by it`s graphic, gameplay, character and story. Everything feels so stupid and childish. Unrealistic dumb missions, weak story, centered on some boring cliche-like black gangsta from ghetto. I mean like gangs and ghettos are the only things you can asociate it with some black guy. We are not in 60s or 70s anymore. And that whining little c*nt of CJ who got cried when Catalina kicked his ass with a whip? That makes me sick.So much for some though gangsta killa lol.

f*ck SA, i got enough of it. It was a great game once, for its release day that is, but not anymore.

IMO!

Complaining about clichés in a series full of parodies. I mean like gangs and mafia are the only things you can associate it with some Italian-American guy. Oh, the irony.

I know what you mean but GTA IV for example isn`t centered on italian mafia only, that`s just a part of it while SA is based on that old worned out black ghetto gangsta cliche bullsh*t. Besides the story itself is so f*cking stupid that you just can`t believe it. It didn`t look stupid back then in 2004 because it was so fun to play it that you didn`t even bother with story. But if you look at it today and compare it to HD`s storylines it just feels ridicolous. You can`t miss the fact that R* just didn`t want to put any efforts into making proper plot with at least common sense, they just puted in whatever it fall in their heads that moment.

Ghetto gangsta is breaking into a military base and flying a jetpack for some acid-lunatic hippie? And all that just to get that retarded and braindead brother of his Sweet out of jail so he could giving him a hard time for the rest of the game? I mean just think about it, SA`s story got to be the most f*cking ridicolous in whole GTA series. (Even VCS`s plot was a bit more creative no matter how retarded was the reason that R* picked for the whole story- Vic gathering money for his sick brother Pete). As soon as you leave LS things makes no sense. Altough funny missions begin at that point but it had less and less sense with every next mission.

Try to play MTA (gta sa multiplayer)

 

You can still do things that you dont do in another games, and if you think the "arcade system" ruins it.. You are completely wrong

Nope. The most overrated game in history is any game from the Halo and Call of Duty series. Hell those two series are way more overrated than the GTA series.

Not overrated at all. Would be the greatest game I've ever played if anything.

 

Graphics don't mean sh*t to me as long as it's viewable. I like the storyline, the missions, the big map and all the extra RPG stuff like working out and eating.

I would say SA DESERVED to be higly rated and it wasn`t overrated at all.

The game was a masterpiece of 3D era and for it`s release day it offered even more than V did for a 2013 release year.

 

Just compare the content you had in SA to any other 3D era GTA game`s content. It is uncomparable. You had full of planes, even a military fighter jet, helicopters, boat, parachute, jetpack, tons of great vehicles, lots and lots of stuff to do...tons of customizations and everything

No other 3D GTA can`t even compare to SA. It`s true that the story wasn`t exactly oscar worthy but it`s content makes up for it

 

After 3 and VC, SA felt so awesome i could hardly believed it. In previous 2 titles i couldn`t even drive a proper plane or stay in the air for more than 30 seconds, i couldn`t go far from the coast with a boat due to it`s short boundaries, i couldn`t swim, the height limit was ridicolously low but now in SA i suddenly could flew a fighter jet 5x times as high and parachute it out.

Man it was awesome. I know that each gamer have their own tastes and opinions but i will never understand why some of them hated SA. I mean it had 10x times more to offer than all other 3D era GTAs together.

 

So i think it is right to be overrated.

Hmm..bit of a sensationalist title if I ever saw one.. anyway..

 

The reason people compare a 10 year old game with a GTA V is that San Andreas raised the bar. Previously we enjoyed III, Vice City (in the 3D world) and San Andreas gave us not one, but 3 cities with each city having it's own feel/weather/sky colour aesthetics. San Andreas was a title that gave us many of the things we now take for granted in a GTA such as flying a plane.

 

It was a land mark title. Vice City replicated the success of III and gave us some new features, new location and colour palette but San Andreas revolutionized the whole series with multiple cities, car modding, clothing that we can choose ourselves and not just preset outfits, we could get tattoos and haircuts for the first time (leading to lots of roleplaying as we could customise our character to suit our gameplay) , property purchasing was more prominent, it was the first time we could swim and explore the ocean and rivers, the collectibles for the first time had meaning related to the theme and story (tagging up turf), we could fly a plane for the first time, we could learn new fighting techniques and we could recruit other NPC's early on in the game, we could take photos for the first time, we had countryside and desert to explore for the first time, parachuting was new too as was muscle building and I consider it being set in the past a feature in itself. We also could claim back our cars at the police impound, we had girlfriends that could give us awesome gifts (if you wanted to), we could go in to a betting shop or a casino and gamble our cash away and even get in debt for the first time. We had a mountain for the first time. How many people spent hours driving RV's off mountains? It was so much fun.. Actually, it's probably the first free-roam game to give us such a mountain in such a "every day life" scenario.

 

So you see, San Andreas captured our imaginations like crazy back in 2004. If gave us so many "first time in a GTA" experiences that fans remember so well but a lot of us seem to forget too. It was a mammoth game at the time, in the media, amongst friends. GTA was wild an unstoppable beast back then that broke the rules, gave two fingers to society and paved the way for so many games.

Aren't all GTAs a bit overrated? It's all III era vs IV era vs V all over the internet.

 

SA is awesome IMO, with some annoying details, but whatever, nothing is perfect.

GTA SA isn't overrated for me simply because it still remains truly an exception itself, and the only open world game of the series, so far, with such scale so large and the widely addictive content rich gameplay, most often associated with as the master of compete entertainment, unfortunately we don't see such greatness today, despite technically possible to blow us away even furthermore :(

I remember first time playing SA when CJ is taken by Tenpenny and Pulaski out to 'the middle of fn nowhere' I was like "Whhoooaaaah wtf is going on here? Where, where Am I now? That feeling of new, undiscovered territory. Than later on BAM, San Fierro! Wow, there's another WHOLE CITY! So you meet all these cool new people and do some crazy missions there for WuZi and then BAM, Mysterious PHONE CALL. Cross the Garver Bridge to meet Toreno again and you feel like a SECRET AGENT doing some sort of spy missions out in the desert. Then, BAM, JETPACK and Las Venturas yet another WHOLE CITY!

This is how I felt playing the game the first time and it still blows me away to this day. After quite a few months of not playing, come back to it with fresh eyes and you won't be disappointed.

People think SA is overrated because butthurt HD era fanboys start saying things like 'SA's story was crap!', 'The graphics are sh*tty!', 'WAAAAAH! CJ is a pussy'

 

Truth is that 90% people didn't understand SA's story. It's an incredible journey across the state, meeting epic characters, doing epic missions. And in the end you are the KING.

 

CJ is a pussy?

The thing is that CJ LET himself to be pushed around and took his chance when it came. He knew violence is not the answer to everything. He bided his time, did jobs, asked no questions. Then the time came and he killed Pulaski. A pussy wouldn't do that. He worked for Salvatore nd robbed his Casino. A pussy wouldn't do that. A pussy wouldn't singlehandedly take back Grove St. A pussy wouldn't volunteer to go into a Ballas filled place alone and fight Smoke. A pussy wouldn't go to LC alone and wipe out the Forellis.

 

Face it. SA is the KING.

And no GTA or any other game comes close to the Legendary Trio: III, VC, SA.
