GTA has always been known for two things: crazy random destruction and missions. Okay, there are also activities but that’s another topic. Point is people enjoy GTA because of its freedom to do whatever you want in a virtual city full of vehicles. But what about those missions? Some of them were pretty amazing like that bank robbery mission from GTA 4, but some were also difficult and annoying. And then we have Supply Lines from San Andreas which is by far the worst /most annoying GTA mission ever made.
First, let’s break the mission structure. You are given a toy plane that you need to navigate to destroy certain targets. The toy plane is small so at first it seems easy at first. “YAY! I’m going to be flying a plane mission.” You’re setting yourself up for an exciting experience, maybe even something memorable. You pick up the controller. You fly. And then you hit the ground.
So to recap, you have to fight the controls, kill moving targets, and make your way back in an exceptionally short time. There’s no room for error. One mistake will cost you 10 minutes of your life. It’s hell on earth.
Thankfully this mission can be completely avoided in order to beat San Andreas. Cool! Except I didn’t know that back then so I just ended up giving up on the game entirely. I’m serious. I literally never played San Andreas after playing that mission. It was that bad. Maybe I’ll eventually get back to it and make sure to skip it this time.
