San Andreas has sucked me back in. Hadn't touched it since before Christmas. Got hung up on the Green Sabre mission near the start, thanks to the still-cranky GTA targetting system, and when Halo 2, Half Life 2, KOTOR 2 and every other damn thing came along I just sort of drifted away from it.
The other day, with Doom 3 boring the musk from my man-breasts, I decided to stick San Andreas back on - if only to blow away the claustrophobic linear cobwebs of Id's folly with some free-roaming, open-plan goodness.
Aced the Green Sabre mission, got dumped in hillbilly town by Sam Jackson, and am back in full throbbing love with the game again. So immersive. Such a wondeful, dynamic gaming environment.
