GTA: San Andreas HD?

#1 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -

Would anyone like a HD version of GTA: SA? I think it would be great having the best GTA game looking a lot better then it does. On that note, are there any mods on the PC to enhance the graphics? I think it would be great.


Thanks.

Yeah but I probably wouldn't buy it since I already own it on PS2. Best GTA ever.

Indeed it was the best GTA ever. I'd buy it and replay it endlessly.

This must be a mistake. You say the best GTA, but you didn't write Vice City?

This thread reeks of fail.

GTA SA HD with Euphoria physics? Yes please.

#6 Posted by DeeGee (2123 posts) -

God I'd love that, it was the best GTA by far.

#7 Posted by ReyGitano (2467 posts) -

I still need to play San Andreas, though even if they released it in HD, I wouldn't buy it unless they redid III and Vice City as well. I'm stubborn like that.

The best GTA is already in HD =/

I really hope they take their experience and make a new GTA that can beat it instead.

Played SA to death and back.

There are HD "MODS" for GTA SA on pc they add  higher detailed models for cars, peds etc.. but not gunna get you your 1080peez. They would have to redo all the art work for the entire game and i dont see this happening.. maybe a up resed version but really whats the difference just play it in its orginal glory like i am right now on 360 :)

Saints Row tried to be GTA San Andreas but it wasn't enough. Rockstar need to get back to the crazy gameplay in San andreas

Really? 
#15 Posted by Scarz09 (146 posts) -

I know I'm in the minority but I think GTA IV is the best one, but yeah it could be cool.

This would be preferred.  I don't really care for the working out stuff though.

The PC version just supports HD resolutions. Looks crisper and runs smoother.

#19 Posted by HitmanAgent47 (8576 posts) -

I'm sure you can run the game in HD rez on the pc. It's obviously not 480p

#20 Posted by GetEveryone (4455 posts) -

I used to think Vice City was the best, but after playing both a little recently San Andreas tells the better story.


Plus the world is fucking crazy and just great fun to bomb around in.

An HD version surely already exists in the PC version. I mean, sure, the textures are the same, but it's running at a better resolution than its console counterparts.
#21 Posted by shootermcclay (219 posts) -

I would rather see Rockstar focus on new games.  I want GTA V, Bully 2, Agent, Max Payne 3.

#22 Posted by _Horde (839 posts) -

Absolutely. I'd pay full price for that bad boy!

#23 Posted by lockon_one (93 posts) -

yeah really great.  id be satisfied with just GTA San Andreas HD for the ps3 but if they did a GTA collection with Vice city and Liberty City that will be fantastic.

Your not alone. I HATE GTA: San Andreas. Story fine, but it added a bunch of stupid shit I didn't care about and too much open areas of nothingness to drive around in. GTA4 has been my favorite since Vice city. I find it has the best characters and story and its not semi stupid like "burning weed crops" and jet packs. I honestly hope they keep GTA in the same direction theyre going with. Want crazy? get Saints Row.

If they touched up the controls some while they were at it I could be into it.
Played it in the not TOO distant past and thought it handled like ass.
But in the end I'd just prefer they worked out new stuff instead of re-releasing old stuff.

Nah man.  SR2 outdoes GTA : SA on almost every level.
#28 Posted by PenguinDust (12510 posts) -

I don't have too much desire to play it again.  I want the genre to move forward in controls, game play and design, not backwards.

I don't think you are; it's just that a lot of people have nostalgia for Vice City and San Andreas. But from an objective point of view, GTA IV is absolutely the best one; it got so much shit right when the other games didn't.
#30 Posted by SmasheControllers (2550 posts) -

It's good but not the best, but yeah HD would be awesome.


Higher Res HD or using RAGE HD?
#31 Posted by Andorski (5307 posts) -

San Andreas in HD?  I'll pass.


San Andreas in HD + Updated controls = BUY BUY BUY!!!
#32 Posted by DominikPagorek (4 posts) -

Saints Row its funny game.
I love GTA and Saints Row. GTA is more serious.

GTA San Andreas have mods like SRT (whole game retextured)
SweetFX (new effects)
ENB (Like SweetFX but more simple also still great looking)

LOOK AT THIS and start to work over ur GTA SA :)

No way. If any HD remake of GTA is to be made. It has to be Vice City, this is not even a debate.

I thought that's what GTA5 was.

Seriously though, I was driving through the backwater towns and got this sudden flash of exactly how much San Andreas I played in 2004 and 05. Both of those games are excellent at capturing magic time during sunrise and sunset.

#36 Posted by PhilipDuck (546 posts) -

Vice City remake i'd personally prefer i mean we got a taste of San Andreas in GTA V, obviously not as great but i would love a 80's Miami again.

#37 Posted by cbarnes86 (556 posts) -

I think an official remake is past the date of possibility. It has been two consoles since the originals. Your best bet is to get them on iOS/Android. Those versions are actually pretty great, if you can get used to the controls

#38 Posted by notnert427 (229 posts) -

I have not played GTAV yet (I held out for the X1 version and will play it this fall in all its glory), but my understanding is that it's a spiritual successor of sorts to GTA:SA.

That said, GTA: San Andreas is the best GTA I've played, and it's not even close. Vice City's map is tiny, the 80s mostly sucked (though I'll admit that they nailed the era), and Scarface might be the most overrated movie of all time.

#39 Posted by pyrodactyl (2007 posts) -

What a waste of talent and resources that would be for rockstar. This is as dumb as the FF7 HD remake idea. Remakes are boring, big remakes are super expensive AND boring. If you want to play an old game, go play it, it's still there. In the mean time rockstar will be working on red dead 2 (3?) or Bully 2 or GTA6: Miami, the game you actually want instead of a Vice City remake.

I always thought that licensing issues for the music was the reason why we haven't seen a GTA collection of the ps2 games. Thing is that they totally re-released that shit on phones with the same music. So they either have great lawyers which made them not pay anything again or they just payed again for the music, which makes me bummed out that they do not want to make hd versions of those games
