This is where my childhood went! I don't regret it either, one of the best games ever made.

It's buggy in Windows 8 too. Left click doesn't work until you patch in a fix for it.

Fying in SA with a k/b and mouse is stupidly difficult! I always kept the controller on hand to use while flying and then switch back to k/b and mouse!

Wow, the trees popping up at 9:50 is worse than the PS2 version. And looks like he's having a hell of time with the controls. How can people claim these games to be better on the PC?

I like the Afro Samarai mode going on near the end there! The difference between the bj in the backroom and hot coffee was the genitals.

San Andreas was the best GTA in the series. Sooo much fun things to do when you're not just questing it trough. That's where GTA V fails if you ask me.

is gta 5 really bigger than this gta 4 and red dead redemptions maps?

GTA V is a very good game, but watching this reminds me of how much emergent, sandbox gameplay has been reduced in recent GTA games.  Go and try to go on a crazy old-school rampage in GTA V and you'll know what I'm talking about.

I miss this game. I found a street in GTA5 that's really similar to Grove st.

Ah great memories.  It was nice to see Grove Street in GTA 5 as well.

GTA San Andreas is probably the most fun of all the GTAs to just run around in the world and play with the cheats. But my god, some of the missions are FRUSTRATING. Also, I love the character look a likes from SA in GTA 5 hanging around the big "Welcome back to Grove Street " wall. But the actual Grove Street is all purple gangsters now, wth

This is the only GTA so far that I really don't like (haven't played V yet), that "gangsta" thing really ruins it for me. But the show was awesome as always!

Danny should totally do a Carmageddon game, I would suggest Carmageddon 2 Carpocalypse Now as it was the best in the series. This one thought was a bit disappointing with all the crazy stuff you can do i figured Danny's whitty comments would be through the ROOF.

Best part was the fat guy ordering at the drive-thru and then complaining about his large soda being spilled all over the floor.

XD The amount of "win" in this episode is innumerable. Nice! Another impeccable RE for another classic.

I just found San Andreas in a Gamestop dumpster the other day while I was throwing out some trash from my car. It works for awhile then the PS2 stops reading the disc, but I can still progress. Oh well, coolest thing I have found in a dumpster....not that I usually go looking through dumpsters...

Loved San Andreas, played it more than 500 hours.

I have many memory's of that game but in my opinion GTAV has surpassed it in almost every way, the only thing that's let me down a little bit on GTAV is the radio stations:(

@mikemaj82 Because they were on proper OS of the time. Controller for driving/flying and keyb+mouse for on foot and shooting. Perfect combination of control. And sharper graphics with better frame rates.

@coldfusion25 I prefer Vice City. It had its flaws (no swimming for instance) but the vibe was the best. And the soundtrack was killer.

@inso-maniac It is, but three-fourth of the map is virtually deserted.

@inso-maniac If it is, it's only just barely bigger.  Though honestly, after playing Just Cause 2, the size of GTA V still doesn't impress me all that much.

@macaque12 Eventually it gets away from the whole gang thing and you end up pulling a heist on a casino.

Ruins it?  The GTA series' absurd style of parody works well whether you like or loathe the characters they're lampooning...  Part of what makes them great.

@exodus_attack I've been saying the same about a Carmageddon Random Encounter, specially with Carmageddon Reincarnation coming soon. Hope Danny reads your comment!

@ddoggbritt16 I don't care what skin your colour is, if a bike is left unlocked in an alleyway it's fair game.

@jayjay444 You remind me the father of Bulma. "Can`t make up my mind about the speakers location yet" Goku: What???!!!

@snaketus @mikemaj82 what? 

ok, once again, the trees popping up at 9:50 is worse than the PS2 version. And he's having trouble getting into a car.
