I think we shouldn't have random events, or rather more specifically have them, but don't call them random events and don't make them seem more as a random event that you can participate in, but rather as some cool thing that happens in the world.
The best example I can think of is probably a music festival. Imagine a beach that's usually empty, but then one day you turn on the in game radio and hear about said big music festival going on, and you go there and it is actually happening. This big ass stage that appeared out of nowhere, people dancing around it and streets filled to the brim with parked cars.
Or even gang warfare that's sort of invisible? I think I've made my position on this clear in some other thread, but basically the gist is that GTA V had this gang culture in South LS but never bothered to use it. If for some reason a gang war happens randomly, it should shake up the nature of the city: perhaps one gang increases their territory over another gang? sh*t like that.
What would also be cool is to see some heavy traffic. In GTA V, sometimes when you switched to a character they would spawn in gridlock traffic. That should just happen randomly sometimes. Especially around rush-hour. Sure it would get annoying, but it's certainly better than having empty streets with 5 cars on them. (Imagine Liberty City like that...oh god)
