I've been wanting to create this topic for awhile.
Not sure If their is one already available.

I don't know a great deal about how the stock market works but I heard it can be a great way to make money if you choose wisely on the right stocks to purchase. Looking at the numerous business in GTA IV and the stock market numers had me thinking. If GTA V is about the pursuit of the almighty dollar - whats more awarding then buying stock and reaping the rewards?

No, I would rather just buy businesses and keep a cash flow going, besides, I don't think much people understand stocks too much. It's a good idea, but just not for a game like Grand Theft Auto.

Oh yeah. I mean, just look how exciting it is in wall street kid.



Flying planes? Nah, I want to keep checking in on stock earnings! Especially in a game that has nothing to do with finance.

Can you tell I'm being sarcastic yet?

That's a good idea, but it cant be easier than gambling at a casino.

Nah no offense or anything but I believe this idea should be nowhere near GTA.

Yeah I know its out there for a game. Lol

Hopefully it will have an easier way to play it.
Like through a website of something.

If they do decide to implement it in the future.

No Stock. I don't think that would fit GTA that well to be honest.

Id rather buy business ventures like in vice city, then do missions and get Asset monney. Way better than gambling, to easing to make 999,999,999. With assets you had to wait for the companys to roll in money. Which I liked.

No. Stock influenced by random numbers in a single-player environment? Lmao.

I would like to see it in the game. Fits in with the whole financial meltdown stuff that's been happening the last 4-5 years. GTA V is set in the same time that it's released so 2012/2013.

It would be fine if it was optional. Not everyone wants or knows how to use stocks. It would be a cool way to make more money. One complaint about GTA IV was that you had all this money and nothing to do with it except buy hot dogs and weapons.

So they've been using the conference calls to hype us up so much that we learn all about the stock market, in preparation for the game, lol. It's a funny coincidence that I didn't know anything about stocks until the recent hype about V due to their conference calls. And now you say stocks should be in the game.

It's extremely unlikely though.

Oh, I see what happened - that last question on the conference call was, "what is your most professional game with stocks?" Those TTWO financial execs just heard it wrong.

OP: Great list, wow, I did not realize how many businesses Rockstar has included in the GTA series. I would prefer a stock simulation minigame to the horse-racing gambling minigame, which is also just random numbers.

Actually, what Rockstar could do, is put in some sort of underlying deterministic algorithm for various groups of stocks, and then the smart players who start to figure out the algorithm would get richer. There have been business or management games like this.

It's too slow of a feature for a GTA game. I can't imagine myself blasting through a warehouse with uzis, shotguns and rocket launchers, then going to my house, flipping on the in-game tv and going 'YAY!! My stocks went up 10 points!!'

Yeah I agree.

We had horse races and casino in San Andreas, why not allow us to have a stock market?
Especially if it has mutiplayer capabilities.
Or will that cause inside trading?

Well, I guess it would be ok if no one is forced to do it. That's the key difference between this and something like a hunger mechanic. This would be completely optional, whereas hunger would force everyone regardless of their preferences to stop whatever their doing and go watch a burger eating animation.

I probably wouldn't use this, though.
