What do you feel was your single biggest accomplishment in San Andreas?

Recommended Posts

wfank

I mean singe biggest, not finishing the storyline or completing 100 % which is filled with different events. Mine is a tie 1. Completing Learning to Fly with gold in all , the hardest mission ever for me . 2. Stealing truth's indestructible Mothership during Black Project one of the most tedious task ever but worth the effort. So what about others?

I can't decide which one between touching all coronas in "Kickstart" and achieving Gold medal for both "The 90" and "Flying Fish". Such chores.

It's not really an accomplishment per se, but having a route memorised for picking up weapons and collectables as I play through the story is satisfying. Not having to worry about stopping for ammunition because I know where to find the guns I want, or being able to pick off spray tags/snapshots/oysters or horseshoes means I spend less time faffing about between missions to prepare and more time playing efficiently without sucking all of the joy out of it all.

Learning to Fly.

Letting the aircraft fly itself, keeping the throttle open until landing.

for me, learning to navigate in 4 star locked off areas, and getting home safely after completing side missions early

Making those punk ballas the smallest gang while GSF owns the entire SF map mixed with some Vago presence. Can say this took a long time to take over every territory from third party gangs in SF not to mention the many issues I ran into on the proccess throughout time. While on my other save file every gang controls their areas respectively. Still don't know how my PS2 didn't explode from all those hours of gameplay back then :turn:

 

Other things include escaping a 6 star wanted level with just bribes. And completing Learning the fly missions on the first try years back. Nothing special really just random things I done throughout gameplay.

Oooh yeah, that feels good. Watching those stars slowly tick down until all I have is a lowly officer chasing me with a night stick.

When in a single flight with an Hydra passed under a lot of bridges including the two roads in SF to LV highway, small holes and narrow places. That time I successfully made sharp turns over skyscrapers and desert rocks nailing distances and avoiding crash for bare mm. Ended up hitting one of those trees that suddenly appear when going at high speed.

I completed GTA SA more than 9 years ago so I don't remember everything precisely.

 

I don't know if it's an achievement but I completed Air raid on my first try.

Well Air Raid i did find a bit frustrating but after 2 3 tries I did it, way better than Supply Lines. But yes a lot of ppl find it hard so definitely consider it a great achievement. But yeah I feel similar with Tanker commander. I see a lot of ppl find it tough, but kinda miraculously I did it on first try, first killing the two chasers then driving kinda dare devil style going through the high hilly places. On later attempts I had it difficult but soon it came easy. But yeah considering a lot find it difficult I count getting that done on first try an achievement too XD ....

More of a modest accomplishment... traveling around the three cities using the freeways without getting hammered into by other cars!

that is quite an accomplishment! the game loves to make left turns from right lanes and right turns from left lanes and changing lanes right into me! I get SO mad at GTAs driving mechanics. I can't drive even across ONE city without being hammered. ( I make an exception for City Slicking, as I'm extra watchful for that driving test and  expect it.)

Ha ha, reminds me of passing 555 we tip on first try without a hit to the car, I think that was a nice achievement too as many find it difficult and fail by having to fix the cars. I admit I learned my lesson on Management Issues (I pssed on my first try too but fixing the car now and then), I was prepared and did 555 we tip flawlessly. But yeah riding around all three cities and countrysides without taking a single hit is a huge achievement, congrats 😎 !

The issue is that SA has horrible AI traffic. So you got cars, trucks, vans, even damn rigs flying through the freeway and hitting other drivers. Then you have plenty of angry NPC's that step out their car to hit you with baseball bats and Shovels, lmao :lol:

To be honest, it's worth getting a dent or two just to have a cabbie jump out of his taxi and threaten you with a bat! I miss this game.

Thats what makes the game a lot more entertaining. The aggressive traffic was I believe intentional and I just love SA's ruthless never backing aggressive peds, even my own GSF attacks when their cars get hit. Such aggressive nature is part of the reason I love SA so much.....

Learning to fly is the obvious one, but I would say Dirt Ring and 8 track in the original PS2 release version. I’m amazed and slightly appalled that they dumbed the difficulty down so much for the mobile port. In 2 and a half days of play time I’m already back to LS, have a fat bank account from casino money, beat flight school with all gold as well as driving, bike, and boat school, exported the first list of cars in SF and beaten all of the car races for each island. Pretty good even despite the mobile version handicaps IMO.

 

slightly off topic, but just wanna marvel for a second at the fact that I have every 3D era GTA game on my iPhone except VCS. If you told teen me in 2004 that I would be able to play all of these on a cell phone I would have laughed at you. It really is impressive and now a threat to my motivation in life lol, thanks Steve Jobs!

Finally completing Just Business after three months of not playing this game back in Jan '05 lol.

 

That mission was singled handedly the most frustrating thing I encountered in this game back then, that and Supply Lines.

 

Also another proud accomplishment, well two actually are getting to 96% completion on the PS2 version (The races were just too damn hard) and 93% trophy completion on PS4. 

 

f*ck the NRG/BMX Challenges and Beat The Cock marathon lol.

I remember once trying to reach the top of Mt Chilliad using a mountain bike while activating the 6 star wanted level cheat. So many times I got close to the summit before getting wasted by police. When I finally reached, I felt like I had really achieved something lol. May not be anything that great, but I felt like a champ that day.

Yeah even I got an idea from one of the above posters which is to try and evade 6 stars only by police bribes. I'll try to do it for all 3 cities. It's always great to find reasons to come back to these games even after all these years.
