Why is more interesting investigate myths in GTA SA?

Hello. In GTA San Andreas it is more interesting investigate myths and legends than GTA V. Why?

What do you think?

Is more interesting in GTA SA because in GTA V there are very little evidence. Think. If there are evidence,it is more interesting..

Another thing is that in GTA V there are very little storms and fog and the forest has little trees and is imposible climb the Mount Chiliad walking.

Personally it's because the countryside feels much bigger in San Andreas to have all these 'possibilities'

The one in V feels too open easy to navigate.

Because SA has a more creepy atmosphere at times, plus, it's all a mystery, nothing's really ever been discovered in SA, but people still search, that's what makes it fun, I think, the unknown and the creepiness of it. Grand Theft Auto V's myths are just, I don't know, easy to go by? Also, the atmosphere isn't that creepy, really...I remember SA's Back 'O Beyond, it scared me sh*tless when I was younger.

Because there was an actual forest, an actual creepy place where you could feel apart from the noisy city and highway... I don't know, that's how I see it. There were myths in GTA SA but in GTA V there are Easter Eggs, which have a different meaning.

 

Places like The Panopticon, Back O' Beyond, Shady Creeks, Fisher's Lagoon, El Castillo del Diablo, Las Brujas, Mt Chiliad, etc, were all pretty creepy back in the day.

Because people were more ignorant back then and now realize such things would not exist outside of the easter eggs Rockstar already put in.

Yeah guys. The principal reason is that in GTA SA there are a lot of creepy places...

In this aspect GTA SA is better.

I gotta say in this, back then the internet wasn't as big as it is today so a lot of edited pictures and mods came up to light and people believed them to be real. Given the game's landscape people would often come up with things such as the Las Brujas witch or the infamous one, bigfoot.

 

In this game a lot of the myths are actually real things, such as the infinity killer or Jonelle Cranley Evans. After those there ins't a lot of things to investigate except for the Mt. Chilliad mural which caused people to believe there is a jetpack in the game.

San Andreas has a creepier vibe. Even though the map is smaller, it is definitely creepier. The lack of animals in San Andreas made the woods feel more isolated.

I'm not much of a myth hunter, but I would find something more interesting to investigate that I don't know that exists opposed to something I know that does. As someone said there's a difference between a myth and an easteregg which I think is a common misconception with GTA V.

Because it was much easier to fool people with faked pictures and rumours about games back in 2004 and also there were many more people looking for stuff systematically this time, so stuff got found quicker, and it was talked about much more, plus SA now is not as popular as V is now, so people who like that feeling of exclusivity (i.e. that they're doing things other people aren't) will be more drawn to searching SA.

Honestly, I did not even know there were any myths in SA until last year, and I only know of them from Youtube videos. I have never seen Bigfoot or an alien item when I played the game. Never even knew they existed until someone asked me if Bigfoot was in GTAV.

Because of multiple reasons. You see, SA is the game where myths really took off in GTA and in gaming in general probably. It was the first game in the series to incorporate a vast countryside. And there is a logical reason here, the countryside in SA felt more crowded, more shady, more creepy. The atmosphere was just really creepy overall, there were no sounds other than the planes flying around, and at night when it was foggy and raining, it looked like a horror game quite literally and the thunder sounds were kind of unrealistic but very creppy. There were also very little open and empty areas as aposed to V and the low draw distance made it look even bigger, creepier, it just helped it a lot. So far, none of the big famous myths has been confirmed, only the ''Woods Creature'' still remains an unsolved mistery since Rockstar stated ''There is no Bigfoot, like in real life, but there IS something in the woods''

 

Nobody knows what Rockstar was reffering to and it's most probably just a troll and there really is nothing but despite that, SA investigations still remain a lot of fun to watch especially. The raining/thunder and fog effects were also not really too advanced like they are today and so they were creating many illusions of something moving around. In GTA V, there is that static ghost on Mt Gordo I think, so everyone knows it's there, it's confirmed and it's obviously not that fun anymore

 

Investigators such as DavidDustin and DarkMythHunter have stated they will make more GTA V investigation videos once it hits PC.

SA is not only the most searched GTA game but probably the most investigated game of all times. It has been like that since it came out and it still continues today so what you said doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

I remember the feeling of playing GTA SA when it was new, when it was largely mysterious, when the myths were alive and to us, the fans, GTA SA was truly the greatest game on the planet, chock full of hidden meanings, ghosts and government conspiracies..


I remember when I first broke into the airport and flew an aircraft in the locked area of bone county and saw the Big Ear for the first time before being shot down. I was convinced there were deeper meanings to The Big Ear, the unmarked graves, the deserted churches and the spooky abandoned ruins. I was convinced there would be answers to the many questions.


I remember waiting in the woods at midnight, listening for the chainsaw killer, waiting to be attacked by a nightmare....


This was the first time I had experienced such mythology in a non-mythology game. After all, this wasn't Tomb Raider, this was GTA but at times, it actually felt like Tomb Raider...


I just haven't had that experience in any GTA game since GTA SA.

I think it´s because of a few reasons:

-While the map is bigger in GTA 5,the forests and the desert in GTA SA felt bigger because there was not as many roads and highways passing through it like in GTA 5.In GTA 5 the wilderness(other than the mountains)is sliced into small patches separated by roads,so there are no huge forests like in Red County,Whetstone and Flint County in SA.

-In GTA SA there would be fog or heavy rain in the countryside sometimes,so spending time there in that weather was creepy,especially at night.In GTA 5 the weather is clear even in the forests.

-In GTA 5 they made aliens,UFOs,bigfoot,killer shark,cults,ghosts and other mysterious stuff real,so there is no mystery about them anymore,and as there is no mystery,there is no point in looking for them.In SA we had no proof that bigfoot,serial killer or aliens exist or don´t exist,in 4 we had no proof that ratman or alligators in the sewer exist or don´t exist,but in 5 we see aliens in a few missions,UFOs and bigfoot if we complete the game 100%,sharks are in the water,epsilon and altruist cult members can be found in some locations,the ghost can be found on the mountain...

That ''ghost car'' was debunked. That beat up Glendale just spawns up a hill and so it rolls down the hill.

Most of the fanbase that has played both is older now. When you were in your young teens, it was easy to believe they might've hidden some things in San Andreas. But after a certain point with nobody finding anything, you know there's nothing to find.

I never cared for the ludicrous SA myths and never believed them. When they popped up I think it was just a result of people being bored with the game, which seems like a blasphemous statement to make nowadays.

And in GTA SA there are a abandoned cabin. In GTA V no

cuz in gta sa the graphics werent amazing so sometimes you couldnt tell what something was. now the lack of fog and stuff makes the whole place so clear that you would be able to see something from so far away. plus the map was much better created. the forests felt miles away from civilization. plus there were so many things that needed questioning in gta sa. why are there these abandoned cars, why are there random cabins in the woods? in gta 5 a lot of those questions have a reason.

 

a pretty big question is what are the abandoned blown up cars doing by the mountains?

im speaking for everyone by saying that the map is poorly made. it feels less like it was naturally created and more like it was manmade. just look at that sad excuse for a desert the senora desert. feels like a sandpit surrounded by mountains. i bet everyone would prefer the gta sa map in hd for gta 5.

simple, like a guy has told already...

 

In SA, there's a lot of dense florest to explore and deserts and nothing has been really comfirmed

 

In GTA V, there's no much trees or dense florests or another kind of SA mysterious stuffs added to the game due to these rubbishes old consoles that limited R* to do their jobs perfectly.

 

--------------------------------------

 

GTA SA - Real Mystery, not intentionally added

 

GTA V - easter eggs, intentionally added

Well I do think the forest in SA was defiantly creepier. The underwater in GTA V really could hold anything I think.

Hopefully, the next GTA will have areas with lots of trees and dense vegetation with some strange sights and sounds in them.

the reason is that gta SA was the first multidimensional game. We played it on the ground (searching myths in the forest and other places), under the ground (the famous blue hell) and even over the ground (using the ganton gym roof ro reach the sky portals that actually lead you to liberty and other cool unused places)...

Reaching that floating yellow triangle as a door to another world was as creepy as standing in the forest at night.

GTA V in reality is way smaller than GTA SA, because all the myths are "on" the ground, and what goes against it is patched or deleted.

As much as I hate to be one of those "tree and forest guys" that right there is a big reason why the countryside in SA feels more creepy and exciting to explore. It felt like litreally anything could happen as opposed to V where you'll have the occasional mountain lion, wild boar then nothing but rock.

I guess names for areas also play a little part in it too. I don't know, but it just seems like names for areas in V's map feel a little generic (and realistic?). Sure, I guess they're good names but they don't have that sort of "feel" to them. SA had some nice names that weren't so English-y and proper, SA had names like, Shady Creeks, The Panopticon, and Back O' Beyond. Even the proper names (ones that don't sound like they were made up by some nearby community) were pretty good, Red County, Montgomery, Palomino Creek, Whetstone, Angel Pine, Bone County, Tierra Robada, El Quebrados, Aldea Malvada, Las Barrancas, Las Brujas etc... Also, the names for areas were a lot more noticeable on screen, they're just a little dot on the screen in V, I guess that and the SA font kinda went with the mystery vibe sort of thingy.

 

Another thing is, the landscape. In V, we have a f*ck ton of mountains and a highway cutting through all of it and barely any traversable flat or flat-ish land. SA had it's forests but you could actually walk around in them because they were nice and flat with minor hills and what not. Now, in V, the forest area is small, they are basically on the side of mountains. Also, Mount Chiliad was a lot better IMO too, you could actually walk around on it without falling off like a crash test dummy since there were pieces of extra land on it and a bit of forest on it too, I don't think it was realistic but this is where realism isn't really needed. The desert in SA was nice too, but I guess if we ever get a another game (or hell, a map for GTA O) set in a re-imagined LV and surrounding areas, then we should get flatter kinda deserts with cock rock or something, lel. Although probably the explanation for most of this is that V is based off of Southern California which can explain some of things things in the map.

 

Anyway, Glad I got that off my chest, half way through I was going to end the post and put "It's hard explaining it. It's like porn or a perfect turd I just don't know what it is, I can't really put my finger on it, I just can't really pinpoint it."
