SPOnG.com has a long story up about their recent hands-on demo of GTA: San Andreas. This game sounds totally fucking gonzo. You need to eat? You need to exercise? (Oh, the irony of gamers working out at a gym in-game). Swimming! Cars that disappear when you walk off for too long can be retrieved (read: re-stolen) from the SAPD impound lot. And there are far more interesting features hinted at and detailed.
I’m definitely looking forward to this game, although I’ll have to wait a while, since I’m not really willing to buy a PS2 for it.
