Added DiffLines:

** Should the player be chased by ''any'' AI characters, notably police, the AI will simply run or drive to the exact position of the player. Cue players hovering along high cliffs in aircraft, watching as the AI throw themselves off of the cliff in an attempt to reach the player. HilarityEnsues.

Added DiffLines:

*** ''Gray Imports'': Rather than having to chase down the arms dealer through the warehouse and out on the streets, it's possible to get just the right angle on his office door that you can see (and shoot) him before the game triggers his fleeing.

A UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 version of the remaster was released on December 1st 2015.

** There's one in the Woozie mission "Mountain Cloud Boys" (reported to occur in at least the PC and PS2 versions). After you take Woozie around the block to the [[spoiler:ambush]] Triad meeting, once you get out of the car and the cutscene plays, you won't be able to control CJ, the camera, or do ''anything'' except go to the pause menu. Fortunately, you can defuse this one by stopping at the target before Woozie stops talking about the Vietnamese gang, thus preventing the cutscene from running.
** One of Zero's missions involving using a radio-controlled toy airplane to kill a team of couriers is rendered next to impossible by a glitch that depletes the plane's fuel at a steady rate instead of only being used when CJ hits the gas, which means there's no way to conserve fuel; on the PS2 version, it's basically impossible to finish Zero's missions without cheating.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: ''San Andreas'' for the PS2 was lightly touched on above but deserves an official spot. The biggest game environment for its time? Perhaps, but it took quite a while to bring it up. The title screen alone took several minutes to load, so much so that it almost seems that it freezes. And if you go inside or outside a building during the game? At least thirty seconds.

* NintendoHard: GTA forums contain numerous accounts by players who have abandoned the game due to inability to complete a number of levels, with "Wrong Side of the Tracks" (a mission requiring the player to drive a bike alongside a train while Smoke, a terrible shot, attempts to shoot enemy gang member off the top) and the "Flight School" (aka "Learning to Fly") missions being declared impossible by some. The latter is affected particularly on PS2 and PC versions by poor controls, and forums include accounts of people making ''hundreds'' of attempts to complete just the third test (circling the airfield).

Added DiffLines:

** Airplanes will occasionally crash randomly for no reason. Reportedly this was a bug the developers left in because it was funny, even though it's not as funny for players who end up being killed (or a rare ride destroyed) because of a random plane crashing into them.

* DeggansRule: The game has a black main protagonist, CJ. His family and gang are also black, but the supporting cast beyond that is fairly diverse. The only time the subject of race is brought up is when his brother Sweet and sister Kendl argue over her dating a Latino, Caesar, but the relationship endures and Caesar becomes one of CJ's most loyal allies.

** In the countryside one of the men seeing walking the streets looks like the villain from the original TheHillsHaveEyes. (This man also makes a cameo appearance in the game as [[spoiler:Millie's gimp]].)
