Remembering The Original GTA San Andreas Hot Coffee Mod
This feature was disabled from the game before release, but not actually removed. This was discovered by several modders in Patrick W released a modification the Hot Coffee mod to enable it. The name "Hot Coffee" refers to the way the released game alludes to the unseen sex scenes. In the unmodified game, the player takes his girlfriend to her front door and she asks him if he would like to come in for "some coffee. Jack Thompson and other anti-gaming advocates denounced the Hot Coffee mod in the media, as if it were an existing feature of the game that children could easily stumble across. Rockstar was forced to permanently remove this feature and they soon released a non-modifiable 2nd edition of GTA San Andreas, which regained the M rating.
The minigame allows players, as protagonist Carl "CJ" Johnson , to have animated sexual intercourse with a girlfriend. The minigame was completely disabled for the final version of San Andreas , and was not publicly known until the release of Hot Coffee , a fan-made mod for the Windows port of San Andreas that enabled access. Assets for the minigame were discovered in the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of the game, and users found ways of enabling the minigame via console modding tools. An updated version of San Andreas was released with the minigame removed completely, allowing the game to regain its original rating. Rockstar released a patch for the original version to disable access to the minigame.
