It's the best GTA in the series.

 

I loved the huge map with beautiful landmarks (I remember when I didn't know about Las Venturas and San Fierro... when I found out I was shocked), sometimes when I have the time, I drive around the map, just looking and admiring the beauty.

There are lots of weapons, all of them are unique. Especially melee weapons.

Awesome storyline I really enjoyed playing through.

Lots of activities (pool, dancing, gym, races, basketball, valet missions, trucking missions, etc.).

CJ is funny in some scenarios. For an example, his quotes when he's fat... which brings me to -

The details in this game... it was waaay ahead of its time.

The pedestrians' quotes are also funny.

Lots of mods.

San Andreas MultiPlayer and MTA.

Lots of interesting vehicles to choose from.

Nostalgia.

I can keep listing...

Simply put: Freedom of choice. 

 

No other GTA, dare I say,  no other game offers as much choice out of the box.

I don't consider SA to be a masterpiece. It's close, but it needs more polish to earn that title. The breadth and scope are incredible though. A real dream come true, especially on PS2.

It stood out because it offered quite a lot at the time. There were many cheats to spice up the gameplay too. Its story was also good and goofy at times

Defining the word "GTA" better than it's predecessors. It's weird to see a sequel capture the essence of the series better than the previous games. It's usually the opposite in the industry. People always use the initial games to describe the core and essence of a game. But SA seems to be the default game for comparisons and descriptions regarding the series because it captures everything this series has to offer in a complete package.

GTA San Andreas was masterpiece because it's realistic, just like CJ be able to hungry, and he be able to change his body shape to be skinny, muscular, fat. Bully was also a masterpiece because Jimmy be able to eat, pee, take a bath, etc. those features I didn't find on GTA V, GTA V is only realistic in the graphics section, but not with features

I think realism not that kind of a thing,when you say realism,i only think about the story,cuz the realism you been talkin about gameplay and everythin in it almost aint even canon.To me,the things make it a masterpiece is gameplay,awesome action,missions,open world,map,dialouge...

Maybe it has to do with the fact this game has so much replayability the stuff you can do is endless. That's why even after 14 years this game is still talked about and videos are still being made about it daily
