5. Its The Highest Selling PS2 Game Of All Time
12 million PS2 sales in the first 6 months cant be wrong, and on all platforms as of 2011, San Andreas had clocked up a monumental 27.5 million sales, holding it in high regard as the 3rd biggest selling game of all time. Now Im always the first person to say things like just because its popular doesnt mean its good, but in this case, it really is. San Andreas was not only popular, it gained critical acclaim, collecting various awards and gaining 9.9 and 9.6 reviews from IGN and GameSpot respectively, showing that the popularity was justified and not just hype.
