GTA San Andreas is a game full of crime, violence, corruption, and gangs. The state of San Andreas is notorious for its gang violence. There are many gangs in San Andreas, and the gang war mechanic makes the game most intriguing. Unlike previous games, GTA San Andreas' storyline revolves around gang warfare, mainly members of the Grove Street Families versus the Ballas.

The gangs in the game make things more interesting as players need to understand gang turfs while roaming the streets of San Andreas. Getting caught in the wrong turf ends with members ganging up on the protagonist to shoot to kill. There are quite a few significant dominant gangs in the game with a few smaller local ones, but messing with any of them ends with a barrage of gunshots. Each city in the state of San Andreas has its gangs that run their crime gig.
