Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Stories is Rockstar's Latest Game, released in 2012. It is set in the ficitonal state of San Andreas. This is by far, the largest and most complex PSP game, and definitely without a question, one of the biggest Grand Theft Auto Cities. Like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, San Andreas consists of three fully-realized cities: Los Santos, Las Venturas and San Fierro. The game is set in 1988.



Ryder, The Protagonist of San Andreas Stories.

In 1988, the leader of the Grove Street Families, Carl Johnson, moved to Liberty City in frustration of Sweet accusing him for the death of Brian Johnson, his brother. It's now up to Ryder, Sweet, and Big Smoke to lead the Grove Street Families. The Grove Street Families have almost been defeated by the Ballas, and the Ballas is making the city tear apart with gang trouble, drugs, and corruption. While he is leading the Grove Street Families, a few corrupt Grove Street Family members frame him for working with the Ballas. Ryder is then forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family, to save the grove street families, to take control of the streets, and to ultimately save San Andreas and end the Ballas once and for all.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Stories is similary structured to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The core gameplay consists of third-person shooter and a driving game, affording the player to a large, open environment to move around. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Stories is the only "stories" game where you can swim, with the exception of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. San Andreas Stories had the most amount of weapons of any GTA game to date, and the game also has a big variety of vehicles, and also has other "vehicles" such as boats, bicycles, helicopters, trains, tanks, and motorcycles. You may also import vehicles rather than steal them.

Ryder is one of Grand Theft Auto's most customizable protagonists. The player can have Ryder wear hats, tattoos, hairstyle, and even more, and he can even be fat, skinny or muscular.
