Niko can never be a "made man" can he?

Just wondering on the possibility of Niko becomming "made" by the mob is? I do remember in the movie Goodfellas that it was stated the character Jimmy (play by Robert De Niro) could not be a made guy due to his Irish blood.

 

Which gives the impression only Italian Americans can be made. However in GTA3....Salvatore did say to "Claude" before the "bomb da base" mission that if he managed to blow up that ship that he "would be a made man, anything he wanted".

 

But it was also clearly stated earlier in GTA3 by Joey Leone that Claude was not Italian.

 

Just wondering what the chances of Niko becomming a made man are.

It's not going to be a Sicilian Mafia only game..Niko will be work for, and against, all different kinds of criminal reorganizations, and i would hate for it to be completly revolved around only one of those groups.

Sorry for saying this, but can someone put me out of my misery and tell me what a "made man" is exactly.

 

There was a mission on LCS and JD was being a made mad but I've got no clue from there.

 

 

 

Please tell me!

A "Made Man" is an offically recognized member of any one of the sanctioned Italian Mafia crime "families" or outfits in the Unites States or Italy.

 

The only reason the Leones told Claude that he would be "made" is because they had planned to kill him. Salvatore was lying to him, basically. You can only be "made" if you are full blooded Italian, or Italian enough that your immediate relatives could be traced back to the Old Country.

in the mafia being made is one of the highest points of respect. you become a captain, you earn a crew of your own, and you basically become one of them in "their thing"

You know the theory that Salv didn't really set him up?

I guess the quote from Goodfellas is the best way to put it.

 

To become a member of a crew you've got to be one hundred per cent Italian so they can trace all your relatives back to the old country. See, it's the highest honor they can give you. It means you belong to a family and crew. It means that nobody can f*ck around with you. It also means you could f*ck around with anybody just as long as they aren't also a member. It's like a license to steal. It's a license to do anything. As far as Jimmy was concerned with Tommy being made, it was like we were all being made. We would now have one of our own as a member.

It was a prime example of sarcasm.

Putting one out of misery - killing, pity, out of.

Now what f*cking sense does that seriously make?

 

Why would an Eastern European be a made man in an Italian criminal orginization. The only way to be made in Cosa Nostra is to be 100% Italian. You can only go as far as being an associate if your not. Now it's really up to the Don to pick who he makes so really a Don could make a black guy or a Russian guy or any guy if he wanted but would he get alot of slack? Hell yea they may even try to kill him just for changing things up so much.

 

Now if Niko is Russian he may get his stars to be a Vor if he's Russian but we don't know what he is.

In a game more focused on Russian/Eastern European gangsters and the Russian mafia, why the hell would Niko join the italian mafia?

John A Gotti(John Gotti's son) was not 100% Italian. His mom was Russian and Jewish. But I don't think Niko can be made no matter what. He's not Italian at all.

No you have to be 100% itialian and be able to prove it. Not that it matters anyways, the italian mafia in the u.s. is made up of has beens. Now 'n days the russian , asian and south american crime families are the major organized crime groups.

Traditionally you have to be 100 %. But when John Gotti was the Head of the Gambino family there was changes made up.

Anyway, Niko can be a made man if a close friend of his/himself starts a mafia. The only people who could be admitted are Niko and Italians.

If you knew they did, then they wouldn't be very good at their professions, would they? There was a bust made on tons of organized crime leaders, all Italian, made just a few weeks ago, I believe. And in the U.S. I think that's proof enough they're still here somewhat, though not as strong as before.

 

Though a lot of them did relocate to Canada, since the police rule on organized crime there is a bit more vague as they haven't had to deal with it as much. Mostly bootlegging of Canadian liquor, I think, but whatever.

 

And on-topic, I don't think Niko's going to officially join anything. He may join a gang or small mob here or there, but eventually he'll probably end up leaving them or killing them for some reason. In the end, as in most Grand Theft Auto games, he'll probably have his own criminal empire, though I think they stated it won't be the same scale as like, Vice City or San Andreas where you own the entire state.

 

We'll see in about a month, though, don't worry. My advice is to not get excited until the last week of time up to the release, then go ape-sh*t. Much less stressful.

No... being made means you become a soldier. You don't get a crew. You just become a normal soldier.

 

THEN you can become a caporegime and get your own crew, if you're good enough.

Well, from what JD said of Salvatore in Libert City Stories, he doesn't care if there's differnt blood in you. The Sindaccos did, because they were Sicilian. So it could be possible. I couldn't see Niko doing that though...
