The Definitive Edition of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has got a glitch that means players are not able to save their games manually, causing them to tear their hair out when they realise their last save was many, many, many hours before this point. Ouch.
In a different universe to our own, the remasters of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas are released to meet with luminous reviews. Refreshed and revamped with a new art style and aesthetics that align with the feelings of the originals, they are optimised to run as smoothly as possible. Lifelong fans and curious newcomers are bowled over by these classics and praise is heaped and heaped upon Rockstar Games, as well as impressive sales statistics.
Maladaptive daydreaming, eh? There's nothing like it. I suppose that's the point. Check out these wins and fails from the Definitive Edition below!
Of course, in our universe, we've got a glitchy and derided trilogy of games which triggered the mother of all headaches for the developer and publisher. You win some, you lose some. Rockstar Games issued an apology for the state of the remasters and admitted that the classics "did not launch in a state that meets our own standards of quality, or the standards our fans have come to expect." It also affirmed that Grove Street Games and Rockstar Games would be supporting the games with updates that resolve the bugs and glitches, yet it looks like this one found by Reddit user Agozzo97 has slipped through the net.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas uses an autosave system, however, the player is able to manually save with floppy disks in the character's house. Well, they would, if that feature was working. As shown in the short video above, CJ collects the floppy disk at the Doherty Garage in San Fierro but no save screen pops up. This is not an isolated incident either as sympathetic players offered their fixes for the glitch that could cost someone several hours of progress in the game. To add insult to injury, the community seems to conclude that San Andreas is the buggiest of the three remasters, meaning that players' woes likely won't end there. Here's hoping that a developer at Grove Street Games or Rockstar Games has already resolved this prickly problem and the update is imminent.
