Which game is just straight up more FUN - GTA V or GTA: SA?

Interested in hearing some opinions on this since many still consider GTA SA as the ultimate GTA/sandbox game.

For it's time San Andreas was great, but my time with that game has came and went. I've put so many hours into it with 8 or 9 story completions, 4 100% runs, and not to mention the countless hours of random free roaming. I own 3 copies of San Andreas. 1 PS2, 1 Xbox Originals download on my 360, and I have a copy installed on my desktop PC along with GTA 3, Vice City, and GTA 4/W episodes

GTA 5 is my now, and what i suspect will keep me busy until we get the next GTA on next gen systems.

For fun you want Saint's Row 2.

I have to admit GTA V is freaking impressive though. I'd say the best game in the series but I "only" have played GTA 1 (fantastic) GTA 2 (fantastic) GTA London (fantastic) GTA III (boring) GTA Vice City (boring) GTA IV (boring) GTA V (fantastic).

So, I've missed the hand-held titles, but also missed GTA SA which sounds like it is one of the best of the 3D versions of GTA.

I'd say I'll get it, but I won't. I have GTA 5 to occupy me. And HOLY MOTORS is it good. It's like driving around in HEAT and TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA and BOYS IN DA HOOD.

Amazing game.

But Saint's Row is the series for out-right fun. IMHO.

That pretty much sums it up. The only this I genuinely miss from San Andreas is Hydraulic Suspension for cars, but even that ruined the camera functions. After playing GTA:V I don't think I would ever want to go back to the whole "must grind missions to unlock the landmass". Function from previous GTA games. Sure there was more useless crap to do (Basketball, workout, casino, ect). But if I really feel like doing any of that I can do it IRL. Cars and mayhem that's what I like my GTA to be and Five does it more fluidly than San Andreas did.

Yeah, no.


The "Fuzz" side-missions alone are more fun than anything ever in any GTA.

GTA V is way more fun and possibly the best game in the series. GTA San Andreas is highly overrated. The first time I played 3 and Vice City, I was amazed. They were fun games. So when I heard SA was coming out, I preordered it and got it launch week. When I actually got to play it, I was greatly disappointed. San Andreas is one of my least favorite games in the series.

SR2 was more fun than GTA 4 that`s for sure but imo it`s quite a stretch saying FUZZ by itself was more fun than anything in GTA

But anyway to get back on topic i`m gonna have to say SA

GTA 5 - I loved a lot of SA, but I never managed to beat it. And I got frustrated with both dating, and with keeping getting called back to defend my territory, when I already had conquered everything.

I get a bit annoyed with the property missions in gta v, but at least I can turn my phone off, or ignore them, without repercussions, like a girlfriend never being available again, and losing their bonus,

I did also like that SA had SF and Vegas, both of which I'm much more familiar with than LA - but I still prefer gta v

That is kind of ridiculous. I love SR 2 and IMO it is way better then the rest of the SR games. Fuzz was my favorite side mission but the gameplay is no were near as good as GTA V. Gun play is way more fluid and smooth in V and driving is also way better. I mean you have your opinion and I have mine but saying Fuzz is better then anything in GTA is kind of ridiculous considering there was things in SR 2 more fun then Fuzz.

On topic I think V is way more fun than SA. The gameplay is way better as is the map. LS and Blaine County are way more detailed and the activities seem to be more fun in my opinion. SA was great back in the day I must of played through it 10 or more times but it just isn't as fun as V. It isn't really a fair comparison anyways because tech got way better and R* has had a lot of time to build upon the GTA series.
