1980s Miami would be cool. It is actually perfect for Mafia game because there are so many gangs trying to control drug market.  Colombians, Italians, Mexicans and others and groups within these groups fighting amongst each other. Early 1980s and late 70s was the wildest time in Miami. Late 70s/early 80s is time I'd go for.  Miami in 80s was like Chicago in 20s.

 

I have not played Mafia 3 : that's why I voted for music :)

What's so special, so deserving about Mafia III that we need even more of this mediocrity ? Sorry but III is not good, if IV is going to be as good as III then i say pass. Ok, soundtrack was ok but, to listen olden goldies i dont need this crappy game. Missions in Mafia III sucked balls hard, seriously uncool :( Modern graphics are nice, but gaming lost its magic - fun that is, sad trend these days :(

Take it back to the game being about the mafia, none of this special forces sh*t. if i wanna play as a special forces character i would go play ghost recon or cod.

1970's set it in either Las Vegas, New York, or Chicago.

I'd like a return to Lost Heaven in the 70's modeled after Chicago. You have the RICO act being passed and everyone ratting each other out.

I'd like to see the 20s/30s, the booming years of America and the rise of organized crime. The rise of new music genres, the prohibition, the Great Depression, it could lead to some interesting storytelling. Mafia was always about the classic mafia style of organized crime. I'd like to see them return to that. Changing the setting for Mafia 3 was a mistake in my opinion.

I like to see Mafia only go into future with each game until they reach present day. I would love a 80s themed Mafia.

Present day would kinda suck though the mafia doesn't have much power and is pretty much dead. The latest I want to see them go is the 90's and give us something like The Sopranos and even by then it was kinda dead.

70s New York, when the city was a dump full of crime. Sort of this GTA concept, that I think would fit more a Mafia game than GTA.

 

And Mafia III was basically an excuse for Hangar 13 to use a random Top 50 1960s songs they bought the rights for and kinda forgot about it later, so of course, the music is great.

They can't possibly go wrong with a 70's Vegas. While Lincoln's story was great, take it back to being a member of a true Mafia family. I'd say it's time to take the gang, load the baggage in the trunk, pick the shovel and get the suits dirty in the desert sand.

Agreed with Zello's post. These days it's either all legal or some shady paper business. That wouldn't make an interesting mafia game.

Maybe a present setting drug distribution ring would work. I'd rather see how the dope spreads throughout the city than a south american cartel though.

70s New York would be golden. All the creeds and colours of the city with an underlying gritty plot set amongst the rampant crime, economic turmoil, drug epidemic.

A city which grew too fast for it's people and quickly left many of them behind amongst the rubble and the dirt. One of the few ways to get out was illegitimately.

actually they've just gone back in the shadows and far from dead. The Genovese Crime Family is still the biggest and most powerful organized crime group in the US.

well if you think about it. Alot of there old rackets are legal now due to the government. like  Protection money = Insurance, Numbers =  Lottory , loan sharking = pay day loans. you can go on and on .

Kind of off topic but I'm dying for a Watch Dogs 3 that exposes exactly those issues along with other corruption. WD2 exposed and parodied modern day consumerism so I'd love the next tale to take care of less obvious corruptions like these and politics.

--

70s New York would be amazing as well. Maybe even better than Vegas if you think about it as it'd make a really dark and gritty Mafia game. Las Vegas with it's casinos has potential, but at the end of the day you sit in a bright casino along with other rich f*cks. NY would express the poverty of that time era and it'll be more reasonable to take a criminal path.

In my opinion, Mafia 4 should continue the legacy of 1 and 2. The development team should approach the writing and design the same way the original studio at Czech Republic did. I was turned off by Mafia 3 since the original CG trailer, and to me, it looked and played like a lower budget game compared to 2, but mind you, I didn't play it and Youtube videos were enough to turn me off more.

I really want to see another cross-decade Mafia game like Mafia II. I love how Mafia II started in the 40s and ended in the 50s. It was cool to see how the city, people, cars etc changed. Mafia III felt far less epic in that regard being stuck in 1968.

 

So for me my ideal Mafia 4 would be starting off in the 70s as a young mafiaoso in Vegas working his way up and ending up in 80s New York City. Who says it only has to be one city? ;)

 

Or alternately just use either of those two cities in the 70s and 80s.

The series has so much potential on telling story about the rise/fall/struggle of an organised crime.

So I'm fine with anything especially when they yet again show a middle finger to pop culture view on 'mafia'.

All the "hurrdurr mafia must be italian gangster" cries are funny.

"Mafia" is a very broad term. They might do a 180 and bring in focus on the Russian Mafia for all we know.

I like the mafia 3 story but i wish they would have continued the story of mafia 2 , but they changed it completely. maybe the next game will be better (less bugs and stuff)

Well the 70's was a decline of mob in Vegas, in the 80's FBI ended mafia rule in the city. But who says we need to go forward with the years, they can easily go back to 50's.

 

As far as NYC goes, I don't know. Empire Bay was suppose to be Mafia's version of Big Apple, just like Liberty City is in GTA games, but they f*cked it up and acknowledged that NYC and Chicago exist within that same universe.

Imo there was a reason why people liked Mafia that gave us the typical definition known by most people of the term "Mafia". I doubt there are many Mafia players that have never in their life played GTA before so Mafia was the good alternative. While GTA focused on various types of criminal organizations and lone wolf individuals in-between, Mafia has only a couple of secondary gangs and focuses on the raw, feared and well known Italian Mafia.

I'm not one of the guys who hates Mafia 3 for playing as a black guy and "hurr durr no italian wtf", because I loved the story and storytelling of this one. This game gave us enough insight on the structure of a mob by taking it down piece by piece and more than enough interesting side characters one can connect to a Mafia.

So yes, M3 certainly was a Mafia game BUT the lone wolf rambo sh*t made me feel like I'm playing a GTA instead at times.

Italians have a certain charm to them and that's it.

Mafia 3 was ass, they should bring it back to actual missions and story style of 1 and 2. The next mafia NEEDS to be in new york, just like the next watch dogs needs to be in new york. So much you can do

First, to talk about Mafia III, unfortunately I am not able to play the game on my own system because my graphics card is sh*t. However, I played the game around six hours at a local internet cafe, having taken River Row back for Vito. Judging by how much I played, the game is enjoyable and I'd give it an 8 out of 10, but most of the people who say that Mafia has lost touch with the third installment is also kind of right. In spite of all the cool soundtrack and thrilling storytelling, the missions get sort of repetitive apart from saving your lieutenants and final boss fights for securing each district. I'd not definitely say that Mafia III is a bad game, but there are some good things from the past game they didn't include even though Mafia III has come up with new stuff that is cool on its own. For example, the missions should be inducted to the game in the way how Mafia I & II did, then each part of the story feels unique in contrast to generalization we have in Mafia III.

 

There's a lot of options when we talk about a setting for a Mafia game. It hadn't slipped my mind until I saw some people around here talking about 70's New York. That'd be nice, as I always thought we should pay Empire Bay another visit, given the dynamic mob policy down there. 70's New York was the exact definition of sh*thole, a city crumbled with high crime rate, drugs, popularized sex trade scene, corruption, economic falldown, racial tension etc. From what I've learned, everybody was on each others' throats back then. So imagine you're in the shoes of an ambitious, young mafioso who ends up pulling the strings of many stable powerhouse to reach the top. Given 70's New York, and that kind of a protagonist, that's worth all the money I have.

 

I'd also like to see a Mafia game set in 80's Philadelphia, known for inner turmoils within the mafia, AIDS epidemic, a high penchant for hard drugs - especially heroin and methamphetamine. Specifically, Nicky Scarfo, who briefly ruled the Philadelphia mob during that period, was notorious for being a stone-cold, murderous mobster. As a matter of fact, he became the leader of Philly mob following a series of civil wars, but his regime was accompanied by more bloodshed as he ordered many of his underlings to be whacked out of fear and paranoia. And, a Salvie Testa type protagonist, maybe?

 

I've never really thought about it, but seeing 80's Miami being hyped here, I just say 'why not'. As far as lucrative cocaine rush of 80's Miami is the concern, I can understand that Mafia was very eager to get a slice of that pie. Besides, although we have witnessed 80's Miami with Vice City and Scarface: The World is Yours, I'd like to specifically see Mafia's take on Miami of that period.

I'd like to see a 1980's Miami. Generic? Yes. Cool? Yes. Though it doesn't have to be the 1980s. Just a Miami setting would be amazing to see. IMO, Mafia 2 and 3 had a great setting and atmosphere. Mafia 2 is basically bliss. If I could I'd legit live in the game. But yeah, I'd love to see Miami or somewhere in the South again.
