Owning Businesses?

In Vice City I really liked how you can own businesses like the Print Works and Malibu Club and how they had actual seperate missions with videos but I don't understand why it didn't return in San Andreas. I think it would have been even better for places such as CJ's garage and maybe taking over Jizzy's club and to have missions.

Who thinks it would be a good idea for that to return in the game?

Hmmm, I read somewhere that in GTA IV, you don't get rich like the previous protagonist's. I thought it said a while ago that it was a rags to better rags (or something along that line), so if you had several businesses across Liberty than I think you would get a lot of money.

Unless, you mean that you get assets for certain things you do for places. For example, in San Andreas you would get an asset for doing Valet Parking or doing the bike missions for Hippie Shopper..

I think that this won't be returning, but I hope you and Roman get to do some missions together for the Taxi Hub. That's how the game will probably start of and Niko will start to make his connections.

This is really out there, but it'd be cool if (for the sake of adding more outcomes to the game + wicked replay value) you could spend time driving around the city and find a place for rent in a good location with rent in your budget and buy the place. You then could open a business of choice (maybe you could choose from anything like clothing to automotive) and then customize it (design clothing, create cool wheels, etc.) and manage it (sales, employees, etc.) and see where it takes you. You could even make it where the store can get robbed and vandalized if it's in a bad area of town. I think it'd be fun...

I may be getting a little too detailed, but I could see my self enjoying putting some time into a business on a rainy weekend. It could make you some extra cash too...or you could crash and burn... =p

Just a crazy idea that'll never happen, lmao. I should just go buy mall tycoon...jk.

Yeah that's creative but to have that much detail that would pretty much be a game inside a game. Mall tycoon isn't a bad idea until this game comes out though. lol

Haha, that would be hilarious. Knowing EA, we'd probably sue R* for stealing our Sims Expansion Pack idea, lol. I'm kidding...I want to keep my job... =p

I believe we will be able to own businesses, but in a much different way then we have seen before.

I didn't care for Vice City Storie's Empire Building stuff. Maybe if they made 1 very focused thing in GTA IV that you had to build that'd be fine, but I want to do some killing and driving not Sims-type stuff like picking out tables and hiring the right people.
