Since the success of the GTA V Mythbusters! thread, I thought I would do a follow up thread but this time, what didn't make the cut into the final release of the game or what simply was not included. GTA V is a massive game with more features than any other GTA game before it. Below are the features that are not in the game so you don't get disappointed searching for hours on end.
 
Important note: Before the game was released, Rockstar have said that information is subject to change before release. Source: GI Reader Q&A
 
Please feel free to reply with any mistakes or things I have missed as it is open for editing by the community.
 
 
Confirmed Features That Didn't Make The Cut:
 
 
Topic:           Zippo Lighters
Source:        GI Magazine and GI Reader Q&A
Comment:    Trevor is able to set things on fire, dousing fuel from canister and lighting it with a zippo.
 
Conclusion:  Pouring fuel from a canister is confirmed in the game however, the Zippo Lighter is no where to be found in GTA V. Instead we have to shoot trails of fuel or use Molotov Cocktails to ignite them.

Topic:           Hydra
Comment:    Was also featured in GTA San Andreas.
 
Conclusion:  The Hydra was cut from GTA V. As it was not in GTA IV, it is possible DLC. The P-996 LAZER is still included.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           Hunter
Source:        This was confirmed in an in-game TV program and the Life Invader website.
Comment:    Was also featured in GTA Vice City and San Andreas.
 
Conclusion:  The Hunter was cut from GTA V. As it was not in GTA IV, it is possible DLC.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           Skimmer
Source:        Was spotted in Trailer 1
Comment:    Was also featured in GTA Vice City and San Andreas.
 
Conclusion:  The Skimmer was cut from GTA V. As it was not in GTA IV, it is possible DLC.

Misconceptions:
 
 
Topic:           Dynamic "State Machines"
Source:        GI Magazine
Comment:    NPCs live their day to day life.
 
Conclusion:  Dynamic "State Machines" did make the cut however, Game Informer misinterpreted the dynamic state machines in the preview. What Game Informer intended to say is: You will find pedestrians doing certain actions like people eating at a venue, people drinking at a bar or an old lady doing gardening etc. Thousands of pre-programmed NPCs would be an absolutely mammoth task and the results would not be worth the time invested in a project like that. I am personally happy with the intended dynamic state machines plus the random pedestrians.

Topic:           Buying Properties
Source:        May 2 Articles
Comment:    This was previously Busted! GI Magazine
 
Conclusion:  Business can be purchased, but houses are not purchasable within single player (Rockstar have said this since the Game Informer preview). They can however be purchased in GTA Online according to the GTA Online Trailer.

Topic:           Human shields
Source:        GI Magazine
Comment:    
 
Conclusion:  Turns out this was for cut-scenes only.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           Attachable Lasers
Source:        Was spotted in this screenshot
Comment:    
 
Conclusion:  The Attachable Lasers were never in GTA V. If you look closely the laser is actually coming from the helicopter and not Trevor's weapon.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           Bus Routes
Source:        Behind Games article of a Brazilian Magazine (PlayStation Revista)
Comment:    For the first time in the series there is Bus routes.
 
Conclusion:  Bus routes were not included in GTA V but instead we have the celebrity tours. I believe PlayStation Revista confused these details or mistranslated it. There is a subway system however.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           Dating
Source:        Previous GTAs: San Andreas, IV
Comment:    GI Magazine confirmed dating would not be included.
 
Conclusion:  There is no Dating in GTA V because Michael and Franklin have partners which we can take out and Trevor is not exactly the bachelor of the year. You can however take out people you know (in your mobile that you meet) around the city with you and do activities with them.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           Gang wars
Source:        Previous GTAs: San Andreas
Comment:    
 
Conclusion:  Traditional Gang Wars was not an activity included on GTA V but instead, are part of Franklin's missions.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           Stadium Events
Source:        Previous GTAs: Vice City, San Andreas
Comment:    There is a stadium in Los Santos
 
Conclusion:  There are no Stadium Events in GTA V however, there is many races and other types of events around the city instead.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           Stand up Comedy and Cabaret
Source:        Previous GTAs: IV
Comment:    
 
Conclusion:  Stand up Comedy and Cabaret was not included on GTA V. Safe to say that Cabaret won't be missed although we do get movie theatres this time around.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           Drivable Trains
Source:        IGN Hands-On Preview
Comment:    Drivable Trains were also featured on GTA San Andreas
 
Conclusion:  Trains are not drivable, IGN misinterpreted this. You cannot jack any trains in GTA V, there is merely a train involved in a mission. You can however bring trains to a stop.
_____________________________
 
Topic:           18-Hole Golf Course
Source:        IGN Hands-On Preview
Comment:    Was first mentioned as a "full Golf game" in the Game Informer preview
 
Conclusion:  There was a "confirmed" 18-Hole course in this IGN Article, but I this was a myth that originated from the "full Golf game" mentioned in the Game Informer preview. There was never a 18-Hole Golf Course however, a full 9-Hole Golf game is more than acceptable.

Previous GTA Features That Were Not Included:
 
Topic:           Casino
Source:        Previous GTAs: San Andreas
Comment:    There is a confirmed Casino in game. Sign on the front says "Opening Soon"
 
Conclusion:  Casinos were not included on GTA V. This was likely left out from the game for DLC hence the "Opening Soon" sign.

Thanks for this, keep it updated :)
I do think there is a Jet pack somewhere in GTA V, maybe not useable but there's must be one, I hope.

Its weird when it comes to property:

November: You cannot buy houses

May: You can buy houses

Yesterday: You cannot buy houses.

 

I wish they would've just kept their mouths shut about property and surprise us in Online. Good game still, just sucks how we have some "fingerless gloves in IV" like features that didn't make it into V.

They changed their mind a few times in the development process!

Well, we can still flip the bird and control convertible tops, which is what some thought would be removed. Hell, even I thought we wouldn't see convertible tops.

 

Is yoga really out? Or do we just reach a certain point in the game in order to unlock it (like purchaseable properties).

I'm not crying too much over the dynamic peds. I thought the interactivity for the peds in the game was amazing enough. Though there may not be a true algorithim, indeed, peds do go around with their daily lives.

I think someone screwed up there in one of the previews. It was always 9 holes.

 

Edit: I think the Game Informer article mentions 18 holes, I'm going to double check.

 

 

Edit 2: Just checked, Game Informer only said a fully fledged Golf game, never 18 holes. It was only a myth.

I hate how human shields was cut. I was totally hoping for a grapple/grab type attack so you could push people. Can't believe they left this out!

I will find the earliest mention of an 18-hole Golf course and include it. Also confirmation if we can actually buy the Hunter would be great!

It would suck if living in the DLC era if we couldn't get those features back, the Casino seems like a guaranteed DLC building, I hope there is some DLC to bring back all buildings and an arson pack to bring back the lighter, if done intelligently they could return all the missing features, I understand they had some limitations but DLC can fix that.

Hunter can't be bought, no datas are on the discs regarding the heli.

 

 

Additionally, there are some leftovers of vehicles in the handling file:

 

Some planes called:

"SpMed"

"SpSmall"

"Napalm"

"Hind"

"Scamp"

 

 

There was also a section for planes, let me quote it, "with vertical take-off". The Hydra was likely to be in there, no leftovers can be found though.

Its depressing that most the features are cut for online or DLC. Come on Rockstar wtf happened to you? I know your just adapting to this modern era of DLC BS but come on 5 f*cking years for this game and you are already hinting at pointless DLC? (vehicles / guns etc)

When crashing at a really fast speed your character will not fly out the front; instead he will lose a lot of life
