Pretty self explanatory.

For me.

-Taxis in GTA IV/EFLC and GTA V. Easily the most helpful feature IMO and something I wish that was included in San Andreas. No more driving to the other side of the map for something that takes a couple of minutes to do.

-Quick save in GTA V. A bit like the taxis. Quick save removes the hassle of traversing the map for a trivial thing. Or in this case saving.

-Back up in San Andreas and GTA IV/EFLC. Nothing more badass than calling in some comrades for some help.

Not sure if it qualifies as a feature, but the cover system in IV & V was an absolute godsend in hindsight, it's the one thing I really miss when going back to the old games.

  • Rockstar editor for both IV and V. Though it can be a bit limiting, it certainly helped make a lot of great machinimas (rip Yeardley). Much better than having to use a ghetto looking freecam mod all the time.
  • Aim down sights. I always found the free aiming in GTA VC and III a bit obnoxious. Probably the massive crosshair in the middle of the screen and how underdeveloped the camera was compared to other GTAs.

- The power-ups in GTA 2 (invulnerability, invisibility, double damage, etc.). Extremely useful for certain missions and kill frenzies.

- Also from GTA 2 are the car garages where you can rig your vehicle with weapons in addition to re-spraying the car. I sure wish they'd make a comeback.

- The bonus multiplier in the 2D games. GTA I isn't really that hard because you get paid during and at the completion of a lot of the missions.

Skip Trips in 3D universe games and those 'replay mission' texts from IV and EFLC (Can't remember if V has them).

Taxi's for mission destination in the 3D era that spawn's at hospital & last checkpoint saved in mobile port's of the Gta titles and of course San Andreas

 

Also Roman's rude cab driver Mohammed that can take you anywhere with a wanted level or even on mission's make's it even easier with a bunch of target's chasing you.

 

Not just that , but also good for trophy hunter's to get the wanted level trophy's

When I close the game or shut off the system it doesn't save anything. I ain't letting pieces of sh*t mess up my deliveries.

Not sure if its exactly a feature but, the game saves your weapons when you die in IV> it's very useful, with it i don't have to buy weapons, or use the weapon cheat every time i die in a mission.

Ability to open the map in the menu (I think it first appeared in VC),it made planning routes in missions a lot easier,especially when I played some game for the first time and didn't know the map well.

Dunno if it can be considered a feature, but I miss being able to choose myself what savegame I want to load instead of letting the game load the latest save. Really annoying when you're not the only one in your house currently playing the game.

Sorry. I didn't get a chance to reply to this before, but hell yes. Going back to the 3D era and trying to have a shootout feels bizarre when no one tries to employ any sort of tactics and stand outs in the open like complete knobs.

 

I use cover the large majority of the time in GTA IV and GTA V further refined it. Though I wish it retained those going into cover animations like GTA IV when Niko would slide or do a forward roll. They were cool..

Waypoints that actually map out a route like in IV and V rather than just a marker in the 3d area. That was pretty handy.
