|I'd prefer 24 hour days with a wait feature a la Skyrim.|
Yes, a 'wait' system would be nice.

|Yes! Days are too short. Start a mission in the sunlight, then cutscene... bam, total darkness. Was I abducted by aliens? Did I stay and have dinner with the mob boss?|
Know the feeling, sometimes between missions and saves you would find yourself only active at night. I would like to see 72 min days, eventually R* will increase days even further.

I would like to see either shorter nights or longer sunrise-sunset transitions to total darkness, however. When I sleep at nightfall in RDR and get up 6 game hours later, it's still dark for several game hours, not so fun.
Also, a short day would be not so fun with a big map - if you have to drive a long way, a good part of the daylight is gone.

this would vastly improve gameplay if a stealth system, NPC crimes, ambient-light dependent firearm accuracy, and/or time-dependent pedestrian presence and traffic was/were to be implemented.

|I think the duration of a day needs to coincide with the size of the map. If V's map ends up being like 3 times that of IV's map, for example, then it might make sense to extend the days from 48 to 60 minutes or 1 hour = 1 day. But who knows, 48 mins may be enough even with a much larger map.|
I think that if you travel from LA to whatever the other cities are, you'd have shorter days to show that you had to drive "all night". If there is SF and LV [or simply San Diego] it would make sense to see the day change quicker to signify the distance.
