If your like me and, A) Do not live in america B) Have absolutely no idea how big a state is, then do not fear for I am here to show how big a state is.



Evidently some states are bigger than others but there is a clear average of state size.

Lets take the state 'WY' and compare the vice city map to it.



Wow look how big a state is compared to Vice City. This game is going to be massive.


I now notice this no way helps anyone at all get a perspective of the size as no one knows the size of WY in real life and I just resized all the images to a scale that suited me therefore there is no real logic or anything relevant in my size comparison.

Please don't close this thread just yet. It's been so long since I started a thread, and you can see I have no good ideas for new threads.

Compare the size of the united states to Europe and then see the size of the states compared to the countries in Europe (or wherever you live) and you will see the massive size a state can be.

I think when he said "WY" he meant "Wyoming".

WY is Wyoming and I have no idea what this topic is about. Yes, San Andreas is big, but Im sure it wouldnt be as big as Wyoming itself. You have to think from a video game perspective.

Can San Andreas be bigger than the State of Rhode Island? From what I heard, Rhode Island is the smallest state in the USA

Yes but it's a game. I think if you put Rhode Island in the game, it would be huge compared to the real life RI.

Well, you can cross Rhode Island in about an hour, by car doing about 65 MPH, so I think if we were going to think about San Andreas in regards to size of an actual state, it would probably be AT THE MOST, an 1/8 of the size of Rhode Island.

But that is still huge for a game. DRIV3R wasn't the size of Miami.
