| Game: GTA San Andreas|
Time: 12 noon - 2pm
Sticking up for the hood, shootin them Ballas, going all gangsta again. Sorry for that, but GTA San Andreas never gets old even after playing the same linear story for about the 4th time. The story started on a serious tone where CJ visits the funeral of his recently deceased mother. Living away from home for a while, he notices how his 'hood' loses its power over the community and decides to stay around and fix things.
The old aliased graphics felt a little annoying at the start. But as I played more, the story drew me in and I started focusing more on my character's role than the graphics. The cut-scenes were ever entertaining and juiced up the setting of the game even more. After about 15 minutes since I started playing, I felt a sense of responsibility and loyalty towards my 'homies'. The dialogues amongst the NPCs and CJ gave a sense of a reunion of a family after a long time. The light abuses also added to the vulnerability of the characters showing the long term friendship. The disconnection between me and CJ broke and I played every mission like I was battling for my own hood.
