Have you ever wondered what it's like being a gangbanger? Did you ever ponder whether the pigs who stole your money have been in collaboration with your homies who may now have cause to betray you? Are you a lunatic? Would you like to be one?
If you've answered yes to any of the above questions then GTA: San Andreas might be right for you.
This game is full of gangbanging, chola craziness, big black men ordering everything off the menu, freebird, compton, grove street. Not to mention: skydiving, plane robbing, house burgling, faggio riding, liberty city visiting, heists, casinos, oysters, horseshoes, plantation farming: you name it.
Is this game right for you? Will you love it? In the words of the wise Big Smoke:
"All we had to do was follow the damn train" - which of course is referring to the philosophical insight that we must all follow the damn train or we will become lost on the wrong side of the tracks.
The $4 version of this game for 360 really isn't bad considering that it's 4 fucking dollars.
Given that I don't own a physical copy, I'm glad they released it, even if it is a pretty shameless cash grab.
fucking glitched territory minigame is bothering me. I've been shooting ballas for hours and the turf war isn't starting. I'm at the end of the game there's like 2 territories I don't own.
This is exaclty how I feel about Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines
I still like to play it late at night, it's almost like time travelling, it's the only game that works like that for me
I can still download and play the original san andreas on my 360 by using my download history list i was playing it today, I also have the option to buy the new version from the marketplace
>You will never have a remastered version of San Andreas.
>You will always and only ever have the forgettable cluster fuck that is GTAV.
>not owning the original
>considering cut sound tracks a good deal
>considering massive bugs a good deal
San Andreas was probably the last game I was most hyped up to play and then after playing became even more excited to play it daily.
I wish there was an upgraded PS3 version with some amazing multiplayer features.
I still just love that map. So many different landscapes and shit, cities, countrysides, desert, all that shit.
I feel like playing some right now.
GTA V is legitimately great, though. People shit on it because it wasn't quite what they expected, but there's just so much to do in that game and the missions are a blast to play. Yeah, the same thing could be said about any of the other grand theft auto games (exempting VI's shitty mission structure) but the three character structure of V ended up working very well.
>most music in the original was shit anyway
>>most music in the original was shit anyway
I don't know, I think I would have liked the ending more if it didn't feel so rushed and had all the villains killed in one sweep.
Also just a small gripe of mine but I really think Madrazo should have been the main villain over Devin Whatever-his-name-is, the beginning sets it up perfectly for him to be the antagonist especially with the money Michael owed him and later Trevor kidnapping his wife and cutting off his fucking ear.
I actually liked killing everyone in one sweep. Felt like the end of the Godfather when Michael had all the other Don's killed. And then that scene on the cliff with the sunsetting, it oddly warmed my heart since you finally saw that they'd become good friends.
I still don't understand the purpose of Mike Toreno's character
You big bad fag. Getting a soundtrack at all is a deal even with bugs. My version is a pirated copy I paid with the same amount of money (included with Gta 3 that crashes every time I load a save and vice city which has no sound at all) which barley has any sound except for gunshots car sound effects and a few other things with a few random lines of the clip of the dialouge actually popping up. Also considering how you really don't have a choice assuming on ly on 360 then you're fucked. If this argument seems stupid to you it probably is as I'm really sleepy right now.
I watched David Cronenberg's Videodrome recently and I couldn't put my finger on where I'd heard the main actor's voice before
Afterwards I realised it was Mike Toreno
So I own the original version from GamersGate, and I am pretty sure that the version they use to sell is broken as shit. Every 5 seconds the game freezes on me for a few seconds.
They do not even sell the game anymore.
My modding plans for GTA V PC:
- Replace default army camo with multicam
- Replace carbine rifle with SCAR-H
- Change the Lazer to a F-35A and the titan to a C-17
- Change tank to M1A3
- Switch cars with models from the latest Forza
- Mod in MGSV characters
Going to do a full on realistic run
>Getting a soundtrack at all is a deal even with bugs.
how can you even talk with r*s cock in your throat?
>Gta 3 that crashes every time I load a save and vice city which has no sound at all
lrn2computer i can play both on a shitty laptop ffs
>If this argument seems stupid to you it probably is as I'm really sleepy right now
shitty excuses i'm drunk and i can come up with a better argument. the gta sa "remake" was a fucking cash grab and everyone knows it. they just ported the ios version without even putting any effort into it (not to meniton the fucking bull shit patch that came out for steam versions). its just r* of david being fucking greedy as usual. id sooner play the ps2 verison with shit frame rates than any shit updated versions
>tfw trying to sound like big smoke in my car while repeating "They'll remember me, Big smoke" and the fast food order segment but now my voice hurts
How do you make a rough voice whitout inducing damage?
>PC master race!

I KNOW A PLACE AT THE EDGE OF THE RED LIGHT DISTRICT WHERE WE CAN LAY LOW, BUT MY HANDS ARE ALL MESSED UP, SO YOU BETTER DRIVE BROTHER
And he's a fantasist
He can't even do any of that
The first part of this game in LS is god tier, the only detrimental things that I could think of is the fucking gang territories shit but the rest is top fucking notch.
>tfw always dropping playthroughs after getting to SF
Yeah, but Smoke shoots Ballas 2 missions after "Drive-Thru" in "Drive-By".
So, he's just a fat ass for the most part.
>Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums (C.R.A.S.H. for short) is an anti-gang unit of the Los Santos Police Department. They serve as the main group of antagonists of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The gang is led by Frank Tenpenny, who is flanked by Eddie Pulaski and Jimmy Hernandez, and was formerly associated with Ralph Pendelbury. The unit's name and self-given-description make them out to be gang-stoppers, however the unit is extremely corrupt. Although the members of C.R.A.S.H. are all among the antagonists of the game, Frank Tenpenny is the main one.
Why does GTA have the best lore? It started as a game about vehicular robbery but San Andreas's story was just so interesting and multi layered.
Because that's when they hit their stride in writing. GTA III was barebones as fuck in comparison to now adays. Vice City was an improvement, and a damn fine one at that. And like you said, SA is top quality. However I could see someone enjoying VC more than SA purely because of the setting. Those are two fucking phenomenal goddamn games.
Initially they weren't going to have Ryder side with the Ballas, but they ended up having him do so. That's also why after CJ finds out they betrayed them he only mentions Smoke.
I had the original game that came in that booklet. Beat it. Modded the fuck out of it. Almost all my cars were different. Also SA:MP.
I never got hot coffee either because I'm not a virgin autistic loser
What was the general consensus on TBOGT?
I liked it just for those theme song beats: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oV8Ol5EoBo0
I loved both TBoGT and TLaD. Those are the DLC's that are worth paying for, and worth the wait, ect. unlike map packs or something to that effect that costs literally the same amount of money. Insane how solid those two games are. I have to say, the new Liberty Rock Radio music fit TLaD perfectly. It gave me a boner riding around Alderny with "The Seeker" blasting into my eardrums giving me tinnitus.
>not player self insert the character, Franklin
At least Trevor had a character and wasn't just a reference to SA and a fish out of water trope.
Franklin has next to no dialogue and by the end, he literally has no part to play.
I don't mind that. Kinda showed the degression of Johnny for falling victim to loving a druggy.
Well shit. I may have to check up on the tracks then, since I'm a console pleb and they combine the songs from both the DLC's and the base game. I remember the Deep Purple being thrown into the mix there as well, ehh whatever.
Arguably Trevor is the self-insert of most GTA players.
Franklin was so bland I forgot to hate him.
You should try conquering the whole map after abusing the glitch that covers it in gang territories.
>I don't mind that. Kinda showed the degression of Johnny for falling victim to loving a druggy.
It's more my hatred of Trevor.
And the fact R* have disowned tLaD and any form of biker DLC despite tLaD actually having a solid story.
I suppose you're barking up the wrong tree with me in that I really enjoyed GTA IV and Gay Tony's stories, so you know, I disagree with TLaD being the only one with a solid story. But I get where your coming from with the biker DLC business, although remember, 5 years have taken place between GTA IV and V's story. So in theory, a DLC could take place sometime in there.
>So in theory, a DLC could take place sometime in there.
R* claimed to hate tLaD, though that's maybe just a rumour I picked up off /v/.
GTA is going the way of Saints Row anyway, sadly.
>GTA: Vice City story is Scarface with literally every negative of being a crime kingpin removed
>GTA: San Andreas's story is about loyalty to family, friends, and your hoods
>GTA IV's story is CAHZIN and Niko angsting about how he is forced to be a bad person despite him not actually trying to change or make an honest living from the moment he leaves the boat to the moment he kills Dimitri
Where did it all go wrong.
AYE AHM NEEEEKO BEEELIK
>There will never be a gta featuring only Little Jacob, Badman and Dwanye
First time he did that, I thought I was supposed to get the shotgun.
I got my fucking face blasted off I repeated that mission like eight fucking times and kept failing on it because I still hadn't grasped the idea that you can stunlock the pizza asshole if you lock on him and keep hitting him nonstop I didn't touch the game for like a year after that because the simple thought of it made me fucking mad
When will the GOAT GTA character make his return?
Ballad of Gay Tony 2 pls Rockstar
When will the true GOAT GTA character make his return?
SEE MY KNEE? THAT'S NOT MY KNEE
San andreas was the last great GTAesque game. So many memorable characters and funny quirps. GTA 4 was too serious, and 5 can't decide between being serious or over the top.
Truth was the best. Sweet was an asshole
>Sweet was an asshole
I think you mean nigger. He legitimately thought CJ did jack shit while Sweet was in prison. Then all he wanted to do was roll up on some Ballas, and CJ was trying to show him the error of the gangbanging mentality.
yeah I never liked that fucktard either
like why the fuck would you go back to some shithole just because you grew up in it when you're rich as shit and own properties all over san andreas
I kept thinking this during gta4.
I think there's even a part where you get a job interview at a pretty nice place but kill the interviewer.
Niko keeps whining about having to do all this bad shit but it's like, you're here because you want to be
4 had the shittiest radio.
Everyone I know turned it off as soon as they got in the car, I literally can't even remember a single part of any of the songs because they were all so unmemorable and many of them were just plain bad.
>there are people who genuinely feel this way

Literally every goddamn station was listenable. From Jazz Nation, to the Russain station. Shit was cash all around.
best song in GTA V coming through
Are you even trying?
Exactly, that's how shit GTA V's soundtrack is.
In all seriousness, here's my favorite.
>tfw instead of Led Zeppelin, we got Robert Plant solo
For what purpose?
That's funny because I thought the ending was one of the most disappointing excuses for closures I've ever played out of a GTA game, and that's coming from somebody who legitimately likes the game and will be upgrading it.
Would've liked to hear this number in the game.
Also, this on a semi-unrelated note.
The justification being that 'New York Groove' was in GTA IV. I won't touch the places in SA's soundtrack that were referenced that weren't actual places in game.
I'd let it slide though. They really didn't have much money for music, and it came out in 2001. Besides, its Chatterbox/Lazlow is GOAT. In GTA V, you'd expect the stations to at least be Saints Row 2 tier, but instead we get absolute shit.
I have no problem with newer music, it's just what they chose is so bland imo.
GTA III had the best soundtrack simply for MSX fm alone.
If this was /mu/ we'd all be talking about hipster music nobody's ever heard of which is why it's cool and what our favorite "album" is because actually listening to music is still hip for some reason
>brother and I use indestructible car cheat code on a flaming car
>It's now infinitely flaming
>Turn on riot mode and ride around town causing havoc
>This song comes on
All those… moments… will be lost in time, like tears… in… rain.
"Running Down A Dream"
"Woman To Woman"
"You Dropped A Bomb On Me"
>Radio Los Santos
"I Don't Give A f*ck"
"Killing in the Name of"
"Ring My Bell"
"Don't Let It Go To Your Head"
"Rock Creek Park"
"Soul Power '74"
So, lots of good ones
>people actually want a remastered San Andreas
Jesus Christ, how unoriginal can you get? Why can't Rockstar come up with new ideas?
>tfw a GTA based in the desert with Route 66 and Las Vegas
Cap your ass! And your ass! You want some too!? Ice cold, baby! I knew I was the chosen one!
though not as good as Homecoming
>San Andreas comes out
>get it day one
>me and my brother have seperate saves
>he fails the Follow the Train mission and I do it for him
>he's stuck at Follow the Train
>talk with people in school
>another one stuck at Follow the Train
Seriously what the fuck is wrong with people, Robbing Uncle Sam was much harder because you had to keep the fucking nigger Ryder alive and then escape rubberbanding cars. The only thing you have to do while following the train is to keep a good distance so that fatass can actually shoot the guys and not shoot the train.
>I actually had to start listening to stations that play genres I don't like
I did too and liked pretty much all of them, even the ones with genres I don't normally listen to.
I especially liked the country station.
>San Andreas was just a dream
>The real CJ's last fleeting moment as he OD'd on heroin in Liberty City, unknowing that Ballas killed Sweets, Ryder and Big Smoke as well as rest of the crew
After ending the Lost he blew away his chance of a new start and let himself be convinced by his skanky girlfriend to become a meth head.
How did he not deserve to die like a bitch?
You could download those songs and put them in the custom user radio station
But you would be missing the between-song DJ banter, which apparently has been ruined anyway as songs just repeat randomly post-update
That's just the tip of the iceberg with the "update" anyway. Bugged saves, mods don't work, missions don't load, missing textures
>yfw when Rockstar was so lazy they ported the iPad version onto Steam, replacing the proper PC version irreversibly even for people who bought it years ago
I hope you choke-a-doodle doo.
honestly the cluckin bell guy is my favorite thing in san andreas
>people actually listened to the music stations and not talkback/Lazlo
I preferred the nigga who worked at Burger Shop in IV
>WELCOME TO BURGER SHOT MU'FUCKAAAA
>Anyone who does drugs deserve a quick forgettable death
All the protagonists in V do drugs. Probably not enough meth to make them as weak as Johnny and Ashley were, but they aren't straight-edge like you, nerd.
>You can make Franklin and Michael smoke weed
>The weed side missions. Franklin has such a high tolerance, he's the only one who doesn't trip and go on a rampage when taking a hit from a blunt
>When switching to Trevor, sometimes he is in his trailer doing drugs.
>Numerous references to Trevor doing drugs
I didn't object to Johnny dying, but I hope they keep Luis and Niko alive. Niko's definitely alive, McReary and Lester only think he's dead because he dropped out of the crime game.
>Carl makes a man out of himself and has a successful business
>Sweet goes "NUH UH BRAH MUH HOOD"
What a cock
>first mission in the game
>fail it like 10 times because I couldn't avoid the Ballas drive-by
Probably a protection racket, it's the most classic way a gang makes money. Though you'd think it'd be mentioned at least once in the game as Rockstar made sure to have at least one mission in both 3 and VC with a protection racket to show how the dosh was coming in.
This was my least favorite part of tLaD.
He didn't deserve it.
If you think about it, the biker gang mechanics could've been expanded on in a GTA6 or something based on biker culture and socal/the nevada dessert.
Because of the tunnels, which forces you to close in and angle wrong with Big Smoke's shots and lets him hit the damn train instead of the asshats. Doesn't help the fact that the AI fire in sporadic bursts, so if you time your approach wrong, you'll probably get fucked up with the tunnel. I finished it the first time too, but after some replays, I got that problem as well.
That said though, the easiest way to deal with it is to just jump on the train instead of following it and forward fire your own SMG.
>hardened on the Vice City chopper RC mission
>Zero missions not such a big deal
When it takes the first 90 degree turn, you can jsut ride up a small incline and jump on the train. I didn't save the webm but there's one floating around taht shows how retardedly easy it is
>I LUH YOU
>NIGGA I SUCK YO DICK
Lamar talks like all the white kids did after playing San Andreas.
I'm not sure I'd say its the lore. The myths in the 3D games were out of control awesome, though
>Gay tony and Luis move to San Andreas to escape the mob
>End up meeting CJ
>CJ is a tech magnate now
>Still speaks the same
Why dont they make this??
I failed the first mission in the game because instead of driving down the road to the helicopter I tried to drive across the field.
Confused, I restarted the checkpoint and followed the road only to realize it failed me for no reason other than I would have skipped a scripted sequence just up the road. That was not a good start
Post best intro:
>tfw Tommy has never appeared again or even been referenced outside of SA
>mfw this song
I'm really appreciating CSR in this playthrough I'm doing right now
>tfw still haven't heard the talk stations in their entirety
