I don't think he's Italian. Looks more Irish to me.

Who said that? It does add up. I'm not confirming anything, I'm just assuming. Being honest, when Michael is wearing a suit, it shows more of his Mafia side, lol. He looks like Ray Liotta and Robert De Niro in that movie, Heat. Someone in the Mafia can mastermind and participate in robberies just like Sonny Franzese.

Here's a long list of many mob bosses. Note how they are not all italian.

http://en.wikipedia....gory:Mob_bosses

Yeah, there are mafia/mob clans all over the world, like the japanese or russian mafia clans but to be a part of an italian mafia clan, you have to be
italian OR you must have italian ancestors. The same in Goodfellas Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) is born american with irish ancestors = no chance for him to join the "family".

Michael seems way too independent to be in an organization like this. This doesn't mean he's certainly not italian, though. Might be. Then again, it doesn't really matter as I don't see him in the mafia or any big organization. He likes money to go into his own pokets.
Bank jobs are not something the stereotypical mob guy (not even a high ranked) would do for a living...

...the reason I said this is because Rockstar is trying to make there game as realistic as possible and the the theme of the game is the recession we are in and its based in socal. If you guys new anything about socal, THERE ARE NO MAFIAS IN SOCAL ONLY CARTELS

That holds no weight.. R* still found a way to incorporate them into GTA:SA..

Still I don't think Michael has any connection to the mafia, whether he is Italian or not.

Op they said he was a bank robber.. Bosses dont move like that

Well, if you remember Phil or Ray in IV, they were doing those kinds of jobs to gain the mafia's respect in order to get made one day.

Goodfellas, also. With the Lufthansa heist and everything.

Maybe it was a way for him to start?

Nobody in Goodfellas was a mob boss.

The closest were Paulie and Batts, but Paulie was only a Capo(consigliere later), and Batts was only a street soldier.

So, you're wrong.

GTA:SA is a different world and GTAV has nothing to do with GTA:SA if you knew what you are talking about, you would know. Rockstar has been trying to make there games realistic with a theme since GTAIV (facepalm). EDIT* In conclusion, GTAIV AND GTAV are in a different universe . The older gta's are set in a different universe. UNDERSTAND NOW icon14.gif

Right.. Michael just moved to Los Santos to hide from someone and start a new life.... in theory, he could be hiding from the mafia. He comes to Los Santos because there is no mafia in Los Santos and he feels he will be safe. Following me here?

Oh yeah I def agree and that makes sense but look at my Edit post. P.S. The mafia would get destroyed if they stepped into cartel territory so I doupt that's the case. He's just a simple Bank robber trying to get away from the past

Why do same of you get so offended with these racial topics?

First of all this is a video game, second of all, you can't deny the italian Maria's place in history.

And most importantly, italians tend to be a lot less offended n these topics as you guys, I've talked to many italians about this topic, they tend to not be as sensitive.

If Michael is a Mafioso, he's probably the rank of a soldier or maybe he was associate of a Mafia crime family. It's highly unlikely he was a Mafia boss.

I really hope Michael is a Mafioso or connected to the Mafia in some way. It would make his story more interesting.

Not necessarily true. The Mafia have very little influence and presence on the U.S West Coast, this is well-known. However, this does not mean that the Mafia does not exist there anymore. The Mafia in America operate so low-key and underground these days that its so hard to tell their current status in various U.S cities. I'm sure the Mafia still have some kind of very small presence in California. And in real life, many Mafia guys relocated to the West Coast in recent years.

Trust me...OG already knows that.

He was only talking about Michael being possibly connected to them.

I watched a documentary about mafia families 2 weeks ago, I think this guy is pretty cool.

And this is NOT true, he didn't sell out anyone. That's what he said himself in the documentary. while in prison, he made a decision to walk away from the Colombo family and organized crime.

If he is, that means he might had been a mob boss, but we can't tell because we don't know his last name. nervous.gif

Or he may be italian and just an ex-bank robber working on his own.
