A gamer recently unearthed a long-lost Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas animation showing many gang member NPCs kicking and shaking player automobiles, generating discussion on many of the game’s forgotten features and subtleties. After the GTA trilogy remasters a catastrophic debut, many are returning to San Andreas to experience the revolutionary, PS2-era sandbox once again. GTA: San Andreas was the most criticised of the three remasters.
Players have responded by returning to the original San Andreas in order to relive their childhood memories while still enjoying the game’s many features without any alterations or discrepancies. One of the best games of all time, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was released in 2004 and has remained relevant for over two decades owing to its unforgettable characters and famous situations. GTA: San Andreas’ thriving community, which is constantly creating new modifications for the game, has allowed gamers to discover new ways to play and explore the environment since its first release.
Rockstar Games published a series of GIFs to commemorate the release of the GTA trilogy remaster, featuring the meme “Here we go again” from GTA: San Andreas. After playing Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for nearly a decade, Reddit user wili 8262 claims to have uncovered an incredibly unusual NPC animation that they hadn’t seen before. At one point in the video, the player can be seen pulling over to the side of the road and leaving their car. It appears that the Ballas, an opposing gang, motion-captured or animated a violent sequence in which they repeatedly kick, shove, shake, and shoulder-bash each other’s cars until they achieved the desired effect.
In GTA: San Andreas, the gangs have a semi-cut behaviour that only works during particular missions, and one player has pointed out that the animation is new to most players because of this. San Andreas has been around for over two decades, yet fresh discoveries are still being made by gamers that might bring back old fans. Pokemon Easter eggs in San Andreas, for example, contain a number of copyrighted pictures of Pokémon characters that were recently found by players.
For those who don’t own a PlayStation 2, you’ll only see these Pokémon if you have the PlayStation 2 version of the game. It’s hard to believe that GTA: San Andreas is a PS2-era game with restricted functionality and graphic capabilities, yet there are a surprising number of hidden subtleties and a captivating universe concealed within. GTA Trilogy’s remaster has been met with disappointment by many fans, but Rockstar is currently making improvements that might make the game the ultimate San Andreas experience for many years to come.
