GTA: a history of cheats

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

San Andreas is to cheats as former Disney stars are to addictive substances. Possibly a new landmark in cheating, GTA: San Andreas contains a whopping 94 distinct cheats. All of the classics are included, as well as a few more specialized codes, such as “All Pedestrians are Elvis.”
