With the release of San Andreas and it's massive map with a deep story line which encounter issues we experience in reality, what has GTA San Andreas taught you as a whole? Example, the way CJ dates his girlfriends could change the way you look at dating when you step outside your front door, into the real world, or, that drugs are a real problem and you need to watch out for them when by your own. Anything like that.

San Andreas didn't really teach me anything... it's just a game. I usually don't learn from games.

Getting dating tips from games is a bad idea.

Carl: "Here, have a dildo!" *Pulls dildo out in the middle of town*
Denise: "Ohh thank youu baby!" *Horrnny*

I learned that San Andreas is a good game. xD

Ah, IRC, where men are men, women are men, and 14-year old girls are FBI agents.

Lol, yeah I was using it as an example, although we should never treat women in that way ;)

Well I barely knew about dating real people since I only had a girlfriend for 5 Years before she moved school. But it has taught me not to take Girlfriends to shitty diners.

Interesting question! :coolthumbup:

  • You can work your way up from the bottom
  • Never quit trying
  • Just because you fail one time (or more!) doesn't mean that you are a failure
  • Sometimes things turn out differently from what you expect
  • Sometimes you have to change your strategy
  • You can't count on everyone you consider a friend
  • You can find help in unexpected places
  • The opportunity exists - but it's up to you to take action on it
  • You can overcome some very difficult obstacles
  • There is no 'instant gratification', work is involved in real successes

Agreed... Actually, one thing that I've learned from SA is that drugs can be a real pain in the butt for your group, gang or friends, since the GSF is anti-narcotic...

That's true, I didn't expect many of the characters in San Andreas to help CJ out, such as Mike Toreno which is an asshole in a way :lol: but San Andreas in a way can be a reality check for those who don't do much...

actually, the best thing i ever learned from this game is to try and try until you succeed... such as those hard missions really gave me the lesson of being a patient dude, before that, i was a really hot-tempered person...

I guess that's something we've learned as well; the Pilot school pissed me off pretty bad when I first tried it :lol: now I look back on it and I laugh at myself :D

Although San Andreas is a pretty easy game to be honest.

Yeah, San Andreas lacked any challenges in the missions but that was made up for with the endless list of activities that Rockstar put in in which has kept me playing the game ever since!

I also learned that shotgun wounds hurt ^_^

And as we know, letting games influence us can be very dangerous. :P

Same though.

I didn't learn much from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas other than the fact that I suck at Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. :D

True that, never mess with the cops! They'll send wave after wave of officers fearlessly!

Also:

Never leave your car parked in the street if you don't want someone else driving it
Money isn't THAT easy to earn
Never rely on a loading a saved game system in real life...
And cars aren't that easy to steal!

If there's one thing i've learned from San Andreas, it's this:

Gaining a wanted level so high that the national guard are in pursuit of you is fun, and gives the opportunity to steal a tank and go on a murderous rampage :)

That's likely the primary charm of the game - you're allowed to break the 'rules'.
