Will we get a GTA with a Mob focus again?

Recommended Posts

GTA never really had a Mob "focus", they were just kind of there.

 

It's an excellent question though and I hope we will.

 

The Mob itself isn't really so visble these days so a story aroud an up and coming young Mob guy trying to re-establish the Mafia would be a good idea.

 

Thanks for the great idea,
Michael.

Not quite true. 

 

GTA III - The nearly 3 quarters of the game's main story revolved around the protagonist Claude working for the Sicilian Mafia under the Leone Crime Family. Claude even nearly became an official member of the Liberty City Mafia (made man) before he was betrayed his employers. 

 

GTA Vice City - Well that explains itself. The protagonist, Tommy is a Mafioso in the Italian-American Mafia under the Forelli Crime Family, and he goes to Vice City to eventually set up his own Mafia empire. The whole game and it's main story is awash with Mafia focus. 

 

GTA IV. The first quarter of the game's main story is Mob-focused, although not in the traditional Italian-American or Irish-American sense, but in regards to the newer Russian Mob. The second half of the game's main story wholly

revolved around the Mob - Italian-American Mafia, Irish Mob, and Albanian organized crime. 

 

As for GTA San Andreas, yeah the Mob was 'just there', and put as side add-on to the main theme. In GTA V, they almost don't exist.

From a realism point of view (realism is a core part of GTA's theme), I don't think it's a good idea as it just would not make much sense, and it would feel too superficial. Say the next GTA game takes place in modern Vice City, I can't see the Mafia gaining control of the streets of modern-day Miami with all the powerful Hispanic drug/crime cartels that dominate organized crime there and the street gangs running amok selling drugs and engaging in turf wars in the city's ghettoes. 

 

I'd rather something relating to realistic scenarios.

Not really. The Forelli's only show up in the beginning of the game  and then at the end. The traditions, rituals, and how the Mafia operates is ignored the entire game. Tommy pretty much goes Rogue.

Lol come on stop nitpicking. 

 

Its only a video game, it did not need to show such intricate details into the inner workings of the Mafia. Tommy needed no ritual either as he was already made if you paid attention to the story. Tommy’s real plan all along after a certain point in the story was to create his own Mafia crime family and empire which he did eventually that was what going rogue was all about. In real life many Mafia wars erupted because one faction wanted to breakaway from another larger faction. So yes, the entire game revolves around Mafia themes along with Latin American drug cartel ones.
