Overall Theme: Please start off by making money useful again. Please allow us to purchase homes, exotic cars, legal businesses, illegal businesses, and more. Please make it worthwhile to collect money.
Rockstar, can you please bring back the importance of money? Please! Can you please make it so that gaining money is actually a worthwhile endeavor? Please build in the use of money in much the same way you did Vice City & San Andreas. Only take it up another notch. All of those leisure activities are nice ways to blow money, but we really want to make big purchases that are meaningful to the strategy of the game.
I can't believe I forgot to write earlier...
...how about being able to invest in the stock market?
How fitting would it be for Michael to be able to earn/lose money the "legal" way? How about some price fixing to mix things up, too?
Yeahhhhhhhhhh; I'm looking forward to GTAV. I hope it's a lot better than IV.
I agree with Captn...this is the PSN forum(s) - not the R* forum lol. I do agree with the idea regarding gaining/losing money the legal way...I think it would be cool to have an actual bank account where you can deposit or take out some moolah and use the ATMs that are scattered around the map and the ATMs could charge a fee just like the ones in real life do...and maybe implement TAXES where you have to pay a certain percentage of your total net worth - i.e. the more you have, the higher percentage goes away for taxes. It would also be cool if you have the option to make payments instead of paying in full when you're car shopping. What about the ability to STEAL a police bribe...say if you see a cop enter an alley or some other out-of-the-way place, quickly zip into the alley and grab the briefcase full of cash before the cop does...and then the chase is on lol.

Rockstar comes here, brother.
If you scroll through some of these forum pages you will see clear traces of their existence. I'm sorry that you felt this was egregious. Each montiversary I bump up the wishlist threads to make it easier for all to find & use.
Well, we have just one month left. By around October/November, you can find me in Multiplayer and try put a bullet in me as payback. It won't be easy, though; I can guarantee you that.
