So, I've been editing on another wiki for quite a while now, and thought I might be able to help lend this one a little more depth. This article shows what I would ideally like to do. Please, anyone respond to let me know what's not feasible, what's not necessary, and what would be left over to be implemented. --GuildKnight 00:19, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
Update: With a little more thought, I've realized this should probably actually be at San Andreas:In The Beginning (mission). Of course, all missions would not need this disambiguation, only the ones like this one and San Andreas:Big Smoke (mission); the ones that would have another page with the same name (i.e[[San Andreas:Big Smoke (person)). --GuildKnight 00:23, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
Pedaling home is not a mission
The mission ends when the player enters the bycicle because the player can buy properties and do vehicle missions and others, so cycling home is not part of it. --DT-boy 06:57, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I haven't seen one hint that these cutscenes are titled "In The Beginning" in any way. The perception I have is that this portion of the game, like that of GTA3 (which doesn't even have an article), is untitled. - ZS 10:57, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
- I agree on that point. However, nobody is going to search for "Introductory Mission" - whilst it's technically accurate, it's not common phrasing. Howabout something like First Mission (GTA SA)? Then we could have a simple central First Mission page which outlines what the first mission is, and gives a link to the first mission of each game. Gboyers talk 23:21, September 30, 2009 (UTC)
- Some of the opening "missions" aren't missions to begin with (such as in GTA III and GTA LCS), but they are left out in this wiki, cutting out plot points as Give Me Liberty and Home Sweet Home mention nothing about the turn of events in these cutscenes. I've renamed it to something more general. - ZS 05:48, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
The game is programmed to have a save title "In the beginning" when no previous mission is passed, a leftover from Vice City. Players normally don't encounter this "correct" name.--Spaceeinstein 16:23, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
