gta san andreas is overrated
China Lolfeminists 
- did not age at all - bad graphics, even for 2004 - awful controls and gameplay - awful ports for pc, have fun installing fixes for this - overrated story, like with all gta games there's a reason the people defending gta sa all come from poorer nations, lol.

for its time it is very good, but it just doesnt hold up to gta 4 and 5. most of the praise for this game comes from nostalgia i guess

GTA IV is not even that good IMO, boring story and Liberty City is pretty mundane. Though I like to go bowling with my favorite cousin

idk man imo it was the weakest GTA IV despite its good lengthy story. It didn't have the GTA identity because you could do fuck all in the world, you couldn't customize vehicles, there were very little unrealistically fun elements, the weather was UK levels of depressing, the driving was terrible and the optimization, oh boy. Albeit the game was basically Rockstar's leap into that era's next gen physics it was so poorly polished.

gta sa very good I think but probably because of nostalgia, Gta 4 was pretty bad I'd say. But if Gta SA was released today I wouldn't like it so I think its safe to say its all nostalgia.

2020-11-01 15:44
agree with all but the story was not overrated it was fun and entertaining and about graphics just keep it mind that this game was released during the end of the ps2 console cycle, they had to downgrade a lot of shit for it in order to run on ps2, and going from vice city to this was a big deal, i'll never forget the first time i got this game and played it

dude you have idea that gta san andreas had the best graphics for the date, gameplay, it had a ign classification on 98/100 it was proven to be one of the best games in ps2, about pc i dont really know. if you didnt play on ps2 dont even talk about it, when you have no clue

half life 2 wasn't an open world game unlike gta san andreas, and half life 2 didn't come to the ps2, it came to the original xbox, but graphics were highly downgraded as it should be, ps2 wasn't powerful as the original xbox to run HL2. watch this walkthrough: as you can see, it's like GoldSrc 1.5, impossible to run at ps2. but i kinda agree what you said about gta san andreas' graphics, but ps2 version had the best visuals.

It didn't look good back then and certainly doesn't look good now, the story is what it is and it has some regular crashing tendency on modern systems but nothing too serious. But the gameplay is just right and the game is fun af. Radio stations are awesome and the map is well though out.

2020-11-01 01:57
Like most older games it has better mechanics than the newer games which creates alot of fun. I certainly didn't play it for the graphics or story . Speaking of graphics the current young guys who play CSGO are going to be faced with kids younger than them saying the same thing about CSGO. "Graphics bad therefore shit game, just nostalgia".
2020-11-01 02:10
You must be young. The game was ahead of it's time, and to this date it's pulling off numbers. Fun fact, I have well over 5k hours in that game.

Haha, no. I didn't play GTA V but by what I've seen it's no match to SA either, easily the best part of the series, attention to details is influential and almost exceptional.

I have to agree with you on the graphics, Half-Life 2 and Serious Sam 2 both came out in about the same time as San Andreas and they both look much better, but I'm fine with it, it's not the worst thing ever Controls are great, but the sensitivity on the guns when you aim down the sights is pretty high I don't mind installing fixes if it makes the game better and more playable, it only takes about 10 minutes in total

SA - Funniest game and story. A lot of cool features who was kinda revolutionary in the series. VC - The most entertaining story imo, since I like Scareface. IV - Didnt really like it that much. Story was kinda funny, but too many useless and annoying features game wise. Gta V - A bit dissapointed, but probably because I was kinda old when it came out. Fun missions, but a bit inconsistencies in the stories. Gta 3 - Very underrated game. The story is almost as credible as a good movie.

2020-11-01 15:40
A guy who considers GTA SA as one of his favourite games here: I can take all other criticisms but I must draw the line on the story. Only games that have surpassed SA on the story were God of War and RDR2(Of course it has to be R*). But they follow more of a drama story so I'd say GTA SA is the best at a story with comedic foundations. Getting aged is also debatable but my observations tell me that game is aged like wine. MTA and SA:MP are still stacked with player, memes are still made about it and people still talk about it either in a positive or negative way like yours. Gameplay and level designs were revolutionary for 2004 so I don't know what are you talking about. There is still no game that you can make your character either a buff chad or obese fuck through going to a gym or eating food. And controls are changeable even though they are not even bad and just a classic control scheme for that era.
2020-11-01 15:41
2/8 bait however If you look at the graphics, at least do it in the same context. All 3D era GTAs were designed for PS2, so you can't just compare GTASA with HL2 or other PC/XBOX games from that era because they had other constraints and requirements. Given all the content (open world, BIG map, a lot assets, very customizable) they had to fit in the game and the constraints of the system (PS2 - 300MHz CPU, 32MB of RAM, DVD so very slow seek times), the developers did a great job.
