Regardless of how great GTA 5 is and how many exciting gameplay features will be present on the upcoming GTA 6, older titles from the related series will live forever in the hearts of the fans. That’s also the case for GTA San Andreas, and there’s no wonder why. The 2004 open-world game has very diversified gameplay, and this makes some fans believe that it’s actually the best title from the Grand Theft Auto series.
In GTA San Andreas, possibilities are endless: you’re in charge of CJ (aka Carl Johnson) as he tests his luck at the casino, robs houses at night, becomes a pimp, engages in gang wars, buys houses, makes girlfriends, completes lots of side missions, pumps up his muscles at the gym, and many more. And there are still many other ‘crazy people’ playing GTA San Andreas in 2020, so it’s useful to know how you can get the game on PC.
Download for PC
You are free to download and install GTA San Andreas from Steam, as the game costs only 9,99€. Here’s how the notorious gaming platform describes the famous open-world title:
“Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas… a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.
Now, it’s the early 90s. Carl’s got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.”
As you might have already guessed, there’s no need to own a powerful PC to play the game. The title works on even the lowest-end devices, as it requires only 256MB of RAM, 64MB for the video card, and 3.6GB of free hard disk space. It’s true that the poor graphics represent the biggest downfall of GTA San Andreas, but just what can you expect from a 2004 game?
GTA San Andreas is still a gold mine when it comes to sheer gameplay, and nobody can deny it.
