If expanded upon then yes. If we can influence it to our advantage outside of missions then it would be awesome. Blowing up business trucks, going on a rampage and later support the business and have connections to manipulate the market would be a great, never seen before feature.

GTAV's stock market was lame and it's only purpose was to look up a guide to max up your cash.

The stock market and manipulations to get rich works in gta 5 for me if i save the assassinations, side stuff, and property purchases for after the last heist and final deciding who lives mission where i have all 3 survive. That is i do the story first and save everything else for after. Also it seems R* structured the game to be optionally played that way.

Stock market in gta 6 ? I would rather have more fun ways to make lots of money. Vigilante, stealing cars, burglary, ect.

Nope, gambling and burglar missions would be better.

I would love to see the Stock Market make a return in VI because it's something you can do, it's not forced upon you.


I also want to make money legitimately too, it's not all about that crime life <3

As we all know the stock market was a primary way of making money in GTA V, but is it something you would like to come back?

For me no. Side missions felt pointless because of their low payouts and it was tedious trying to make decent money outside of the heists if you didn't know all the tricks.

I would rather have underground type gambling like illegal gambling dens to go to actually engage in activities. If it came back as an alternative money making method I could stomach that, but not as the primary way like it was in GTA V.


I wouldn't mind it coming back. It's another new feature. I wouldn't mind taking a gamble on it if I knew I was about to do a certain mission and I might be able to influence it. Or if you could earwig on downtown investors for tips, could be cool. 


Having said that I prefer illegal gambling dens but does it have to be one or the other? I'm greedy. Can we have both? :D


Playing poker in Watch Dogs is so much fun also in RDR. But Watch Dogs high-stakes is great and although you can easily win big bucks games can go on for quite some time.So I think they should be in GTA. I mean poker is a game of skill, it's not just gambling and if you win money fair and square, I don't see why that can't be a source of income in a new GTA.


Inside Track Betting was another great one. I remember betting millions and winning millions on the horse racing. Ok, I may have cheated a little and loaded my save game and gambled but some times I liked the play realistically and blow my money, if I win I win, if I lose, well tough tits for me. Bad thing about V is that if you don't do the stockmarkets workaround by not completing Lester's assassination missions, would you actually be able to afford all the businesses? I think that's how we know properties and businesses were an afterthought. Because although V claims to be "pursuit of almighty dollar" it's actually quite limited to revenue streams. OK, you have businesses but San Andreas had them 13 years ago even Vice City with Sunshine Autos. Off-track betting and Casinos in SA. You don't even have these in V. Lame.

Honestly no, it felt like missions and side missions in V had low/non-existent payouts in order to drive the player to abuse the stock market, but the problem is, it's such a boring way to make money. Give me more drug/arms trafficking, that's entertaining, not messing around with fictional corporate stocks.

Okay, they can bring it back, but it definitely can't be the main effecient method of making money like it was in V.


This indeed. I'd have very much preferred gambling, drug-dealing, car theft for cash, mini-heists/robbery side missions if it meant omitting stocks and shares from the game. I ain't gonna lie, when I first heard it would be in the game, I was very excited at the prospect, but on finally playing it, it turned out to be such a boring feature that it became highly insignificant for nearly all of the game. I would not miss it all. 



Yes, ofcourse we need it. It's a good way to remember all the companies that are in the GTA V universe. Rich people play the stock market, because it seems to be a sensible way to invest your money. There's a lot of rich people in LA last time I checked. And after getting a sh*tload of money irl, it's really stupid to hold on to it, or to spend it, because it could produce more money invested into some financial products and then you could buy more stuff. There are other products than stocks and shares to invest too.I enjoyed the hit jobs, but TBH I would have liked more of a blackmailing for insider info type of missions.


Ofcourse I would enjoy some gambling too, but irl, the casino's want their money back and they have means to stop you from winning. In financial markets the only way for the losers to get their money back is to sue, and you need evidence for that.


TLDR: Hell yes!


* In GTA, the protagonist generally does not start off the campaign as being rich, he starts off as a typical career criminal that seeks any opportunity to illegally make fast, easy money, so the stock market is highly unlikely to be his chosen method of achieving his objective. Even Michael was not that rich at the start of V, and it was very clear from the start he was only concerned with making big money fast from big scores, he was not interested in the stock market, even when Lester tried to put him onto it. Stocks and shares are very traceable forms of financial investment, something a criminal would want to avoid while trying to hide illegal earnings, as it it's easy to get caught - a criminal is more likely to invest their financial earnings in a business/company as an owner/co-owner or in real estate, not in stocks and shares. 


* The fact that there is a lot of rich people in LA does not automatically mean that the majority of them are into investing in stocks and shares. In fact, you will find that a lot of rich people are like most average people regarding stocks - they are not that clued up about it and they don't fully understand the system enough to want to take big financial risks/gambles by investing in it. LA is not really a hub for stock market activity in real life anyway, New York City and Chicago are the cities for that. Rich people in LA are mostly rich from owning very successful businesses in entertainment, technology, real estate, consumerism, commerce etc - being LA, I'd say they are more likely to invest in real estate and other business ventures, not stocks. 


If you have illegal gains you need a front to invest them in anything legal, so your point is moot.

You didn't get it, don't worry. I can't help you understand what I'm talking about, maybe it's because English is not your first language, I'm not sure. Either way, just forget it.

I don't see why it shouldn't be there for the ones who work at it. The more ways to make money the better.

I don't understand why everyone hates it so much... Personally I loved it and would really like to see it make a return. It could be more realistic though.

Obviously yes, Stock Market is the most important feature in a masterpiece like V, it's a good way of making money (providing you are smart enough to choose which one to invest), it's really a cool feature in a masterpiece such as V. Howeverthey could be expanded, like destroying the company rival allow the invested company to rise up.

Short: Stock Market should return, with improvement
