So while playing the game, I noticed that the forests and parts of the desert were a bit isolated. Would you have liked to have had wildlife in the game that interact with you like RDR and GTA V? Personally, I would have loved seeing deer and bears in the forests, snakes and hawks in the desert and cows and chickens in the countryside.

 

Also, I'm talking about solid animal NPCs, not the props you find in the water and in the sky.

I get my Wild Life in "Skyrim".

At the time of the GTA San Andreas I think they did not have the code, and were fine with aquatic and birds.

If they did there could have been a "Hunting" mission.

Maybe a complete redo might have them.

No, not needed. I like SA the way it is.

I would have liked it, but the truth is SA simply did not need it, simply was not neccessary or essential, especially due to the nature of the theme and overall design of the game.

No, you can easily freeroam in the mountains without fearing of a cougar popping out of no where and bite your neck.

I think the woods in the game were kinda like a margarita- it's great but you can't stop feeling that something is missing.

Anyway, I'm not asking for a huge amount of wildlife, just a few ones like bears in the forest as the woods being empty is really weird as San Andreas is based off of California which has many bears (lol). Them not being present in the game was kinda disappointing but them not being in GTA V was even more disappointing as RDR had many assets to bears so there was no excuse for them not to be in that game. (That's a different topic, I know, but thought it would be interesting to mention)

I would have at the least would liked to have seen farm animals. That would have been good for realism in the countryside towns and farms. V f*cked up bad by not including bears. At least I hoped the enhanced edition would have included them when they added more animals, but no.

I think the lack of wildlife actually creates a heighten sense of isolation. Whilst it would be more realistic to have wildlife roaming around the lack gives the countryside/desert its unique character in a weird way. If you get me.

Voted no.

 

I really wanted the wildlife, but seeing how they did it in V made me realise that it is best to leave it out. SA offered great opportunities for exploring, as the above poster has said, creating this atmosphere of isolation with only the eagles circling high above you and fishes far below.

 

In V you step out of the car for a minute and a cougar kills you. Also, deer, deer everywhere. Maybe California has deer and rabbit overpopulation problem, but you can drive a game mile and come across a good dozen of beasts. I wouldn't mind seeing one or two deer in the whole of Back o Beyond, but more than that will ruin the well-balanced atmosphere.

There's wildlife in SA already in abundance. The ridiculous amount of fun, and wild and crazy stuff you can do. It's so much fun than hunting animals, or babysitting dogs. This isn't something I am posting because of GTA V, but in general, I don't find the need of wildlife in this series.

It's good to see some wildlife in V as it adds to the immersion, but what really excites me about GTA, are the amount of crazy stuff I can do, from playing the role of a criminal to flying jetpacks.

Voted don't care.

San Andreas was fine the way it was.

Maybe adding a pet dog like chop or random street dog like in bully would have been nice.

But considering how SA took PS2 to its limits I can understand why they didn't add that.

Having horses, wolves, bears and other cougars would have been fun and add to the immersion.

Personally I wouldn't have liked wildlife. It wouldn't have bothered me if it was in the game, but it's better that it was left out. If you're like me and refuse to take the roads, often times you will be driving straight through Back O Beyond, a bump will get you and your car will be destroyed. Getting mauled by a bear in the woods is literally the last thing I would want, especially since every single mission in that story arc involved travelling thousands of miles just to start it.
