The world of video games is possibly one of the most hotly debated and fruitlessly argued over when it comes to quality; whether it’s PC gamers’ 500 foot high horse of ‘superior graphics’ or console gamers’ fruitless Battlefield vs Call of Duty debate which PC gamers laugh off from their thrones of self-imposed superiority: the debate is constantly raging.
Whilst more interested people may spend their time debating the nuance’s of a games particular graphic design; I trouble myself with fun, story and general enjoyment when it comes to prioritising my gaming favourites: which brings us to San Andreas.
As the moons continue to pass and GTA 5′s release draws even closer; it’s led to much melancholic looking back on the gaming world before this bound-to-be critically acclaimed Goliath comes to our consoles and the debate on video game greatness is reopened, but before that we look back to an earlier Grand Theft Auto installment; it may not have been the most graphically revolutionary or mature game ever made, yet it’s audacity, skill and commitment to the idea of complete fun not only makes this the greatest GTA, but the greatest game of all time.
