So, I’ve been re-playing GTA: San Andreas for a while now, and got all the way through the San Fiero mission strands, but decided to take a break when it came time to do the three Zero missions. I think it was probably the memory of spending many frustrating hours on those missions the first time I played the game that filled me with dread.
Nevertheless, I am pleased to announce that last night, in less than an hour’s playing time I completed both remote-control plane missions (shooting them down with the minigun from the roof, and flying one to take out delivery people), only needing roughly two or three attempts each. I think the wide-screen television helped a whole lot with both of them. I seemed to get much better aim and sight of the planes when I sat up on the coffee table right up close to the screen. It was definitely a better experience than the hours that I recall spending attempting to beat those particular two missions the last time I played them (as anyone who has played through the game can attest to). Anyway, it’s on to Las Venturas!
