You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I have been playing GTA:SA on the XBox after picking iit up recently.  I play on a normal TV (no HD or even S-Video, for that matter).  That being said, I really have a hard time seeing the little radar down in the bottom left or even reading the map which you can pull up.  I have never really ever had a problem like this with a vidoe game before on my TV, but I don't think the games I have played have such tiny fonts and maps.  Even the radio station names can be hard to read when I change channels.  This is all viewed from sitting on the couch.  Does anyone else have any problems viewing text and such with this game on a normal TV?

This was a big complaint with the original PS2 version.  The different colored blips and whatnot tend to be obscured by the dark background of the game.  I had hoped this would be relieved somewhat with the Xbox version, but apparently not...

it's not as bad on HD; the icons are viewable if you really look hard. (except barbers; those effen scissors are ass)
