The game’s vast vibrant state of san andreas with three cities based loosely on Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas became the perfect playground for players to have CJ and his cohorts survive gang shootouts, high-speed police chases, and frantic sprawling heists on foot or in dozens of different vehicles. GTA San Andreas also introduced RPG and survival elements into the series for the first time, like tracking what CJ ate or how much you worked out and adjusting his abilities accordingly. While all of the GTA series are classics in their own right, San Andreas is one of the most robust and memorable open-world games ever made, and the pinnacle of gaming experiences on the PlayStation2.
