Like the title says do you guys think we'll have a game focused on the Mafia?
The past couple of games we've seen the world of crime through the eyes of a freelance hired gun, bikers,a nightclub bouncer, and a couple of Bank robbers.
We've seen the Mafia in GTA since III with The Leones and Claude doing a couple of jobs for them before finding out Salvatores plan for him and ending his ties with them for good.
In VC Tommy is sent down by the Forellis to set up and expand down in Vice City but you didn't really feel like a Mobster.
LCS was the game that tried to go for a mob focus but instead Toni felt more like a personal errand boy for Salvatore and not like a member of the Mob.
In IV we see the Mafia trying to survive and stay relevant, everything they try to do always ends up failing. As seen with the entire diamond fiasco, and the H they stole from the triads. Most of their members end up ratting each other out and the rest of the city doesn't fear them anymore.
Like Teddy Benavides said in his final moments in GTA IV "Those putos too old. They finished, fool. This city don't belong to them no more."
If R* decides to focus on the mob again how do you think a game could work? Do you even think they'll work on something like this? Their cousins at 2K look like they are handling the Mob thing.
If they ever decide to do a GTA based around the Mafia I'd like to see a character trying to work his way up the ladder and become a Made man.
