whats up niggas? So I got gta san andreas during the steam sale and holy shit this is dope. By far the most immersive fucking game I played. The city is so fucking alive and so much shit you can do. Just picked up OG loc. fuck this shit is fun as fuck I actually feel like a nigga
why are games like just cause and other open worlds so devoid of everything if older games had all this shit to do? How do you regress so fucking much from this type of shit?
>post yfw Big Smoke was stalling for the Ballas
>pretty good way to get killed is to sit in the vehicle thats getting shot at
The Ballas were never meant to attack CJ during that mission. They were headed to Grove Street. Although you are right, because during his mission strand, he tries to get you killed when you're on the sports bike with him as the Russians attack you.
fucker who cares if the story is fucking dope as shit
>mfw listening to freddy taunt loc
More to do isn't necessarily better. SA has a lot of superflous shit. For IV, they stripped a lot of it down but made interacting with friends/girlfriends much more of a focus, so it felt more "alive" on a deeper level.
I'll just ignore the fact that you'd have to be underage to not have played San Andreas before.
San Andreas isn't really much more alive than your usual Just Cause or Far Cry or Assassin's Creed. It does have character though, that's what makes it good. I replayed it recently in english actually paying attention to the story, and enjoyed it even more than I did when I was younger. It really makes you feel like you're a nigga.
>It really makes you feel like you're a nigga
Only the first part
The story really dips hard in quality after the main grove street stuff is over. It picks up a little with Woozy but nothing else in the game is as fun as those first few hours in Grove Street doing gang shit
What? I thought the mobile version was just for consoles.
I was trying not to ruin it for the OP.
If this is true, man, do I envy you. You've got lots of catching up to do and many good games to play through that I'll never experience playing for the first time again.
I think the biggest thing that gives this game character is the attention to detail. For example, while JC has civillians, SA has civillians that randomly say funny things, have a chance to attack someone, steal a car, and get chased by the popos. There are radio hosts doing their thing, you can find gangs, drug sellers, whores and other shit. If you get bored of killing and blowing shit up, there are other things to do, like dancing, dates, or basketball. Hell, just the side missions are often unique enough to make sure you don't get bored.
Meanwhile every game today boils down to either 'race niggas' or 'go there, kill/steal shit, gtfo'.
Carl, what do you want? You gotta eat to keep your strength up, man.
Dude really? 99% of my experiences with SA had nothing to do with the fucking story.

Alright, /v/, here's the ultimate, offical guide to experience GTA: San Andreas in the most complete and best way possible. (On PC of course)
1. Download GTA SA from Pirate Bay or wherever and install the English version.
2. Download "Things to do in San Andreas 'till you're dead and install the mod.
This mod adds tons of cut content back into the game. Entire missions, voice overs, vehicles, mini-games that didn't make it into the final version of the game are accessible again. The story of the game is much more fleshed out like this. You'd be suprised how much more R* had planned for GTA:SA and is on the disc but isn't used.
3. Download the fixes to "Things to do in San Andreas 'till you're dead" and install all three of them.
4. Download ASI Loader and install it. Download Silent Patch and install it. (http://steamcommunity.com/app/12120/discussions/0/34096318964479523/) Tons of graphical improvements that improve performance and look of the game that R* could have easily made if they weren't such incompetent devs.
5. Download and install the PS2 Timecyc (http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=20208). It adds the original PS2 sky colours and lighting that are otherwise missing in the PC version. Without it, everything looks much more bland and dull.
I just tested this stept by step approach on my own PC, so it should work.
========================================================1 of 2
Hey, I'm the guy who made this guide a thread ago and this guide is fool-proof if you follow it verbatim. There's a reason why I didn't mention the different versions, because the first mod "Things to do in San Andreas 'till you're dead" will automatically downgrade every version of the game to 1.0, no matter which you have (1.01 or 2.0). And v1.0 is necessary for modding. I quote the read me from the mod:
>All is not lost however, as installing the mod will also automatically 'downgrade' your game version to V1.00 so that it can run mods properly (see note below). This also means that if you have patched the game to V1.10 then the game will revert to it's pre-patched status.
I don't think that this guide works with the Steam version, though. If you've bought the Steam version, I'd advise to torrent the game.
Also, I want to underscore that it is imperative that you install the three fixes for "Things to do in San Andreas" (Point 3) , otherwise the Silent Patch won't work with the modded version of the game you have and you'll most likely end up with a botched installation.
Maybe you guys who saved this copy pasta should add these points as well for clarification.
I am going to take out all of the expletives and racial epithets in your post and replace them with fruits & vegetables.
I'm also going to correct your syntax.
Whats up apples? So I got GTA San Andreas during the Steam sale and holy bananas, this is dope. By far the most immersive artichoking ybygame I have ever played. The city is so avacadoing alive and there is so much strawberries you can do. Just picked up OG Loc. Broccoli, this carrot is fun as plums. I actually feel like a sweet pea.
>why are games like Just Cause and other open worlds so devoid of everything if older games had all this aparagus to do? How do you regress so cauliflowering much from this type of grape?
>Broccoli, this carrot is fun as plums. I actually feel like a sweet pea
YOU'RE EMBARRASSING ME IN FRONT OF MY 'EFFING FRIENDS DAD.
I HATE YOU.
i enjoyed going to the gym and learning new fighting moves.
GLORY HOLE THEME PARK
>MFFW LISTENING TO THIS FUCKING RADIO SHIT HOLY FUCKING SHIT IM DYING
>your flying level is too low cannot access the airpot
>park car by wall
in any modern game this would be fucking blocked by and invisible wall holy shit im guckin loving this shit
Tally ho fellow limeys, and a rather dapper day if i do say so myself! I recently purchased San Andreas as part of the stealm sales and I must say, it is positively charming in every spiffing way possible! I have never in my limey life felt this much immersion! The city part of the game is, for me, almost as if it is a living breathing world, and I never tire of it. Just met this african american fellow who calls himself OG loc. I actually feel like an actual african american, and I dare say Ive now had this much fun in an age!
Why oh why had gaming regressed from it's original form? why are modern games so, shall we say, dull and devoid of life? Wot Wot!
>>hydra dog fights
Its all coming back now, fuck the dogfighting in this game is amazing
>get hit on left wing
>kill the fucker
>jumping before it explodes
>other hydra comes and allahu akbars you
They do that so faggy reviewers don't go bitching about "muh immersion", Sonic 06 had the same thing and it wasn't even that much of a big deal, yet people saw that as a bad thing
TIME FOR THE ULTIMATE BATTLE /v/
GTA 5 ruins shit like doing tricks on chiliad because as soon as you would hit a death threshold it just auto kills you.
i loved seeing my body get tossed down the mountain after fucking up a sweet BMX trick.
WCTR is without exaggeration the best fake talk radio station ever created for a video-game. I say You say, The Maurice Show, Travels with James Pedeaston and that fake NFL punditry show I can still remember verbatim years later.
These are the songs that got removed

Fuck me. Those songs were some of the best.
Hood Took Me Under is in the game, though. I was literally listening to it earlier.
I can live without RATM. I listen to their music pretty often and Killing in The Name is one of their worst songs.
