I've read plenty of ideas talking about little things like new weapons and additions to car customization, but what about major topics? Things like entirely new game engine settings, control schemes, the ability or option to play the game in 100 percent first person mode.

I for one would love something like that. It would make use of every in game car mirror, add an all new sense to driving and peripheral vision.

Anyone else want to see some big changes?

A first person option would be cool. Biggest thing would be a working economy and reasons to use it.

I've always wanted a legitimate use for money.

I'm honestly inclined to say, I'd probably enjoy a 'Realistic' type mode that makes you buy food and such. Just anything to make the economy not feel entirely one-sided. Perhaps if you get 3 stars by blowing up a helicopter and two cop cars, you're forced to pay more for "Damages", etc.

Landscaping and such for venues you own, or houses you have, could also be another expense.

Saints Row had car dealerships, but they were usually cars you could already find on the streets. It'd be pretty neat to buy a Bughatti Veyron type car for over 2,000,000 in game dollars, and it could only be bought there, not stolen or found.

This may sound really odd, but I think if they added a Sims-like aspect to buying property, then the economy would be put to use. Say you buy a house on, oh, let's go with Grove Street. Want to put in a pool? A few thousand dollars. A playable basketball hoop? One hundred. Want to take out that dinky TV and put in a flatscreen? Another thousand. If they put in home decor options and landscaping, then our cash would finally be put to use.

I would like to see some selectable business missions. Say you buy a vacant warehouse. You could choose from a few options like counterfeiting money to drug manufacturing to making fake brand clothing items and pick what the warehouse would be used for. Then you could have a few missions regarding what the warehouse does, like laundering the counterfeit money or delivering the fake clothes to ghetto stores. It could also add some replay value if you couldn't change your building's use on a whim.

That would be pretty cool.
Sure moving into Madd Doggs mansion on Vinewood hills was fun, but imagine customizing it the way you like it. I would use the lot customization.
I like the idea of setting a counterfeiting building. You re a criminal in the game, might as well give us more ways to commit crime.

Buying properties (including stores and restaurants) is something I would like to see, as well as being able to enter more buildings.

i have to admit i kind of like the idea of customizing a safe house or home like that,could be fun to do,not sure if we will get that but who knows, i did enjoy doing the businesses in vice city stories so maybe they will use something like that for gta 5.

What about difficulty modes?

I was thinking a "Classic" and "Hardcore" mode.
Classic being more along the lines of what we're used to, and "Hardcore" upping the realism, so you can only carry one large weapon along with a pistol, cars can be totaled after one good hit, and your health is affected more realistically.

That would be awesome, Rude_Boy_Loves_SKA. The Hardcore mode, that is. To add on to that, how would you feel about very limited ammo capacity, and having to eat/drink occasionally in game, breaking limbs (a la Fallout), etc?

I would love a separate mode like that.

Going to combine a few ideas here on what I'd like to see. I think it would be cool if you could buy a house(s) and actually had several to choose from in several areas instead of just one apartment. You could customize it to a certain extent, invite people over for parties maybe.

If you could buy cars (that you could not otherwise get), there needs to be a way to save them. If anyone is like me, I just steal a car, drive it around until its too wreaked to drive or just abandon it and run around for a bit. In the end I usually have a different car after 10 minutes. I'm not going to buy a car if I drove it out and decided I want to run around for a bit then lose it. I think that after you buy it, the car should always be in the garage at your house. That way you dont have to worry about bringing the car back to a save spot every time or being really careful while driving.

You could even have a 5 car garage or several parking spots around your house that you can set as spawn points for a certain car.

Not so sure about eating and drinking, but yes. It would be awesome if you're in the middle of a police chase, cornered on a bridge and having to decide between fighting it out, or jumping, breaking a leg, and trying to limp away.

Great idea.

As long as the police suffered the same damage and injuries as the player that sounds like an awesome idea. I would also like missions to have designated checkpoints in that case. No way do i want to get 13 minutes in to a 15 minutes mission, died then have to taxi ride back to teh start again. I'd rather play Sonic The Hedgehog.

A nice bonus to that is that During police chases you could shoot out a tyre causing a terminal/fatal crash rather than having them unrealistically ram you for 20 mins.

I really really really want a working economy with business management and such. The whole 'buy business, collect money, repeat' doesn't work anymore. I wanna steal supplies from competitors, wreck their deliveries, buy out their employees.

What would be really cool to have is an empty shop that you can buy and decide what is sold there - clothing, weapons, car mods, whatever... that way you can shape the city to your needs, but it would also deteriorate or enhance the neighborhood it's in. A gun store would promote more gang activity and more random shootouts between peds (this is GTA after all, that's pretty common)

Yeah, like you i only want this done if it seems like a genuinly well planned and built game mechanic. I do not want to stand in a rotating neon circle, select a menu option then have the place generate money for me with no future interaction.

I probably wouldnt be very interested in that. They have to make it an in depth, variable and thought envoking system.

I'd love to own my own Garage in it like we did in GTA:SA. But this time i'd love to tune, design and sell cars to improve the business. I'd like to hire more mechanics and source parts distributors from the games internal internet and stuff. I'd like to have to steal rare cars for re-sale and things like that. And i'd like the business to feel real and alive, I'd like to converse with my mechanics and get discounts on my own cars and stuff. Maybe even have my own office with an armory and savehouse in the building. I seriously doubt that but its an idea of what im talking about.

That sounds like a good idea too and sounds like something I would enjoy doing. They really should have something like that in the game
