The Truth > Omega. Truth is far funnier, deeper character and more interesting overall . The Truth is just one of the most iconic character in the history of GTA.

REWARDS!

 

Virtually every single side activity in GTA SA has incentives to complete them. You get vehicles from schools and stadium events, weapon pickups from collectibles, and so on.

 

Meanwhile, you get practically nothing for completing such side activities in GTA V. The only thing of note is the Space Docker. . .

The sheer scale of the experience combined with total freedom, huge map, engaging and immersive open world and a roller-coaster storyline that takes you all over the state of San Andreas.

GTA games are famed for freedom that no other games can give. By that SA is the king of kings cause it offers more freedom and content than any other game. Arguably the best open world game ever.....

- The driving mechanism are actually really nice. Really balanced the arcade and real-life simulation elements.
- The diversity on the quite large map actually making it's ten times bigger than it was, really well made map.
- Side missions variation is high. Sure they didn't fit CJ character, but atleast side mission is side mission. No relation to main storyline whatsoever.
- Customization, oh GTA San Andreas is truly the king in this part.
- Mission rewards in this game is more satisfying than any GTA game ever was before IV.
- Cheats diversity! Every starter favourite. I've stopped using those though, but it's still quite nice for those who still new in the game.
- Lots of well made character.
- K-DST, K-ROSE, Radio X and SF-UR. Four of my favourite genres is there, in just ONE computer game. It's truly is a glory.
- Missions surely are challenging and they're quite different from each other.
- Great vehicle designs. Nothing can beat the beauty of a modernized Cheetah or a brand New Turismo :D

Giving the player ultimate freedom to explore the map.

There's no stupid restrictions like in GTA 4 and 5 where you get 3 stars for entering airport.

You can complete the paramedic sub-mission in a village which makes this activity way less annoying.

What I still love is they are still accessible without cheats unlike VC. I remember first time I discovered LV. I just got the game in early 2006 and after a few days I was driving the train and stopped at the barrier in the intersection. I decided to try swim and it was the most pleasent disvovey, I MADE IT THERE. And as soon as I started exploring I had the 4 stars and was soon shot dead by heli. But still I could make it there and access so much stuffs there, same with  SF not long after. I was so in love with the huge SA map, and till this day consider it the best game map ever....

-The Driving to this date is the best in the series. Ridiculous for a 15 year old game. 

 

-Most fun side missions with a lot of variations. From criminal side activities to others. 

 

-Best mission design in the entire series. Minimum filler ratio. Fun, varied.

Contrary to Tommy Vercetti who waits like a pussy bitch for his enemies to attack his companies CJ manly attacks his enemies to control the city like a true kingpin. 

Yep, because only a pussy is too smart to throw the first punch instead of instigating the altercation like "real men" do. (sarcasm)

It's just a wink to those who keep their time denigrating CJ compared to the "badass" Tommy Vercetti.

Map. Probably the best map in the entire series, although it's kind of unfair to compare it to the other titles which mostly consist of a single city, SA still nails it with the different areas that have their own ambience and vibes to them.

Well doing the same thing to Tommy ain't any better either. They both are badasses in their own ways.

San Andreas to me is a jack of all trades. It doesn't necessarily do anything perfect but it does everything pretty well.

Driving, shooting, exploring, flying. All these aspects are done pretty great.

The ability to make a lot of money very easily from the game start (at least compared to 3 and Vice City), just kill some dealers, bet in the Inside track office and you can become millionaire in a fingers click then buy the Mulholland safehouse. All these elements give a good overview of the improvements San Andreas gives compared to Vice City.

The achievement feeling when you reach the 100% competion is much bigger than in Vice City.

 

In Vice City:

  • you didn't create any solid alliance with any other gang,
  • the Haitians want you dead and their leader is still alive,
  • the Haitians and Cubans regularly make intrusions in your companies and all you can do is struggle again and again to protect your business
  • your stronghold contains at least twice more corridors than rooms and its entry hall is a junkyard

 

In San Andreas:

  • you control at least 35% of the gangs territories and can always wipe out the Ballas and Vagos forever,
  • you eliminated the Ballas' and Vagos' respective leaders Kane and Big Poppa
  • you prevented the Ballas from expanding their influence in San Fierro and destroyed the Loco syndicate with its drug factory and Jizzy the powerful pimp
  • you defeated the San Fierro Rifa and killed their leader T-Bone Mendez
  • you defeated the Da Nang Boys and killed their leader
  • you fooled the 3 mafia families without they even dare to retaliate
  • you stole the army, attacking a secret base without Uncle Sam retaliates
  • you created a solid alliance with the Varrios Los Aztecas and the Triads
  • you destroyed the corrupt and powerful CRASH that once dared to blackmail you
  • you eliminated the traitor and druglord Big Smoke
  • you freed Sweet from his prison
  • your business empire is spread on 3 cities

One particular thing for me :

 

THREE VERY DIFFERENT CITIES, and many countryside towns or settlements. 

 

No other GTA even has this yet, and San Andreas has been out since 2004.

To add on to what has been said above, that sense of exploration is done best in San Andreas imo. Future GTA maps may have been denser or bigger, but the variety in terrain in SA made me have the most fun exploring its map. 

Also I think SA has the best or the most convenient cheats as well.

- Map. The way they designed it so cleverly to make it seem bigger, and the fact they managed to cram in three cities on those consoles and still managed to make them detailed and more diverse. Especially Las Venturas. I love the little areas like Area 69 as well.

 

- Weapons. They are really fun to use IMO, and I love the dual wielding in this game. 

 

- Driving and vehicles are both really fun, a lot of great and memorable vehicles.

 

- Vehicle customisation, clothes, accessories etc. I felt like there was a lot of things to spend your money on.
