“Grove Street. Home. At least is was until I fucked everything up”- CJ
Don’t get me wrong I was a big fan of GTA V. I even bought it, beat it, and sold it in 2.5 days. But I am a ride or die fan of San Andreas. Lets have a little throw back and remember crew.
These guys were my best friends when I was growing up. I could run home from my school and jump on my PS2 and always expect my boys to be there fucking shit up. But all joking aside. This game was awesome. I was a big fan of Vice City when it came out and it is still one of my favorites don’t get me wrong. But San Andreas? Come onnnnn. I still remember the gun cheat code. R1 R2 L1 R2 Left Down Right Up Left Down Right Up. Thats how you know it’s impacted your life. It’s been 12 years and I can still tell you cheat codes from a video game.
Another reason I think that I liked this game is because you could work out. Im not a big gym advocate but I honestly felt like a personal trainer getting CJ buff. “ONE MORE” “ONE MORE” “DONT QUIT” he was fucking jacked. I would get all hyped up and just walk the streets of Los Santos and sucker punch anyone looking at me the wrong way.
Thinking back I feel terrible. You know how many times I probably robbed this guy right here? Millions. Kid’s just doing his thing, slinging chicken at Cluckin Bell, and I come in with a Uzi and hold the joint up. He had bills to pay, but so did CJ. It was me or him.
There was so much beef in the streets too. I felt like an OG, probably the most gangsta i’ll ever feel in my life. When I seen the Ballas, it was ON. I used to pack all the boys into a shit box Chevy Malibu and head downtown to show them what Grove Street was made of. Now that I think of it, I actually got in a fist fight with one of my friends when I was younger because I told him he was a Balla and I couldn’t hang out with him anymore. Don’t wear purple to school in the San Andreas era.
Still haven’t talked to that friend.
