Ehh, I don't like Rockstar's stuff. Never played Max Payne, but I can't stand Grand Theft Auto. Always felt it was directionless and boring. Well, there's one exception--I liked Rockstar's Ping-Pong game that came out on the 360 several years ago. That one was cool.
However, if we're going to point out franchises or developers we want to release games, I'll throw my hat into the ring for Microsoft's games, id's games, and Epic's. That, and ports of Kingdom Hearts would be swell.

I think the Grand Theft Auto series is entertaining, and the high production values are undeniable. That said, I've always thought the games were incredibly overrated. Especially GTA 4 which was billed as amongst the most incredible games ever but really was just more of the same. The series is like the pop music of gaming. They make a huge deal about it when it's released but within a year or two it's forgotten. Rockstar has only been able to rekindle the flame with the consistent release of sequels. It helps, of course, that the thug culture theme continues to appeal.
Like I said, the games aren't bad per se, but nowadays all a game needs is Hollywood blockbuster levels of production for everyone to gush over it. I will add that the original GTA was the best if the series by far; well, let's say it was the most fun.
