Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a video game available for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC computer platforms. This game is based on the popular video game Grand Theft Auto 3, which features an open world and immense player freedom. Grand Theft Auto 3 is considered to be one of the most influential games in the area of open world design and emergent game play.
In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, players assume the role of CJ, a low-level gangster from a poor neighborhood in a fictionalized version of Los Angeles. Through the completion of story missions, the player can rise up in power and assume the control of a gang. Once established as a gang leader, the player can recruit homeboys. Homeboys are gang members that can be taken on missions and provide backup during combat missions.
GTA San Andreas Homeboys is a piece of software that embodies this aspect of the game. This software serves as a screensaver. Whenever a computer is left on standby, a portrait of a homeboy from the game appears on the screen. This can help immerse the player in the game world, as well as show his devotion to the Grand Theft Auto brand.
