    I'm gonna agree. San Andreas >>> IV.
    They took out too much in IV that was in San Andreas.

    Why do you think this ?

    San Andreas is easily the best GTA .

    &nd I've had/have all of them .

    San Andreas has sold the most between ALL of them .

    ... But they still put a Liberty City based game back out .

    Sales


    By March 3, 2005, the game had sold over 12 million units for the PlayStation 2 alone.[38] As of September 25, 2007, GrandTheft Auto: San Andreas is the best-selling videogame in the United States with 8.6 million copies sold, ahead of its predecessors Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto III,according to the NPD Group.[39] As of September 26, 2007,Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has sold 20 million units according to Take-Two Interactive.[40]Asof March 26, 2008, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has sold 21.5 million unitsaccording to Take-Two Interactive.[41] The Guinness World Records 2009 Gamer's Edition list it as the most successful game in the Playstation 2, with 17,33 million copies sold forthat console alone, from a total of 21,5 million in all formats.[24]

    GTAIV was HORRIBLE. Every single mission was almost exactly the same: drive, shoot, run, repeat.

    San Andreas on the other hand..... [​IMG]

    San Andreas is definitely the greatest GTA game!

    The soundtrack was bananas! I felt like I was back in the 90's again.

    The one thing I say to people is that by Rockstar removing those crazy elements like the jetpack and the "Area 51" style missions is really wherethey f****d up at.They made it a little too real if that makes any sense.

    Imagine if the next DLC brought C.J. to Liberty City, and they end up using that to set up the story for a CJ based GTA V.

    I don't get it, what do you want, a sequel to a come-up story of a guy that already came up? or a rehashed story in a rehashed setting? see, that's whythey make games, not you.

    Lol, I also never accomplished beating it. GTA 4 is decent, nothing compared to San Andreas tho. I agree, CJ & Grove Street > Nicko. Rockstar continueSan Andreas!

    i think one of the things that hurt rockstar with IV is that they went away from pop culture

    3 had this sort of italian feel that was heavy in the beginning but still continued throughout the game with also some asian and african-american influencesalso, especially in the music

    vice city had the 80s miami vice/scarface feel to it

    and san andreas had that Boyz in the Hood feel to it


    --- whats sad is that in interviews that came out before IV was finished, ROCKSTAR developers and directors even acknowledged that they were going away fromthat pop culture feel and atmosphere [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    San Andreas is my favorite also. I'm sure they'll do a sequel.

    Cause it's gay &nd I'm tired of Niko .

    &nd nah eNPHAN it's not even just the Black storyline ...

    It was just overall better , because it was relate-able , and it had a BETTER storyline .

    SA appealed more to the audience ... who wants to be a war veteran from Europe ?

    Like , who can relate to that ?
