GTA: San Andreas HD?

#1 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 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.

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

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?

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.

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

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.

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

#22 Posted by _Horde (838 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 (12414 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.

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


Higher Res HD or using RAGE HD?

San Andreas in HD?  I'll pass.


San Andreas in HD + Updated controls = BUY BUY BUY!!!
