Will we get a GTA with a Mob focus again?

I prefer a protagonist with no allegiances to any one organisation. Mobsters are so pretentious, it is always better to be the guy who will happily do their dirty work for money but is not about to be swept up in all their personal politics.

The personal politics is what makes the Mafia interesting though.

As much as I love mob inspired plots or themes. I think R* should get with the times and implement a more modern organized crime theme. Yes, there was in IV and V. IV was more of the old school tradition while V had only a small glimpse of organized crime.

True and the Sopranos is one of the best shows, but I prefer protagonists who see through it all and not get caught up in those politics.

Working as a 'soldier' or a hired gun would be the most fun and applicable to gta, higher up mob guys wouldn't be taking all the risk as you do in gta missions. 

 

Also working with/for a variety of criminal organisations sounds good to me, not just one. 

 

But yeah hopefully this is a direction they go toward instead of more government crap.

Absolutely. Yeah the politics are interesting. Nobody sees through it all like the other chap suggested. It affects them all. You have to play the game to move up the chain. And it can be really dirty. Love the power moves. The who is next in line etc etc and how the politics effects relationships and exciting business deals, especially between families like in the Sopranos how Johnny Sachs and Phil Leotardos power vacuum and destabilisation leading to the war between New York and New Jersey.

A two city game could work with the Mafia.

 

You're a mobster from Carcer and the family sends you down to Venturas to handle it's Casino operations. You travel between the two cities.

I wouldn't want a mob focused storyline unless it was a period piece or unless they go the GTA 3 route and totally divorce the game world from reality and what I mean by that is; no mention of real life people or celebs, no current issues political satire, no cutting edge tributes to television shows or movies that were released in the last few years. GTA 3 was more of an overall satire of American culture and media and how outsiders view it. It wasn't necessarily specific to a certain place or time period. It wasn't realistic and wasn't meant to be so having stereotypical mafia goons walk around with fully automatic combat shotguns and engaging in shootouts with overall clad Triad members wasn't really something that felt out-of-place.

 

They couldn't do a contemporary mafia story if they are going to rely too much on satirizing the current state of the U.S. because, frankly, the mafia has no real relevance as a criminal network or as a source for popular culture anymore. However, if they went back to their early 3D era roots I believe they could pull it off.

Thats why we need a game set in the past. Back when the Mafia had power.

When you say mob focus are you just speaking of just the Italians? Or mob as in any mob? Cartels, russian mob, yakuza etc... I would like to see rockstars take on the cartel orginization. I mean have you guys been seeing whats going on with the mexican cartels lately. Reading the news about them is like a script out of a movie.

I've been wondering the same thing for years Zello. While GTA has always touched on the Mafia, never have they gone so in depth that we felt apart of the Mobster lifestyle. GTA IV was pretty good about it getting us involved with em, but we were still just a fresh off the boat killer. I think the problem lies in the unavoidable comparisons to the Godfather and Mafia games, as well as the fact that if they went classic Mafia with it they would need to reinvent many aspects of GTA to fit the time frame, but I wouldn't want to play as the Mafia in current times. That said, sooner or later they'll get back around to it but if GTA V proved anything, it's that they're trying to take a break from the typical theme of GTA.

Gta liberty city stories was very mob focused as you played as made man Toni Cipriani who worked for the Leone family. But since then I agree there hasn't been much around it not in HD universe at least.

I've had enough of Italian mafia in GTA to be honest, been there done that. A focus on crime/organised crime yes please, and maybe the mob could be involved in some way, but I'd rather it wasn't the main focus and not to play as an Italian mobster again. Playing as either a member of another type of gang or a criminal not affiliated to a gang would be preferable. 

 

Mob focused would still be better than government agency focused though, anything but that.
