Mafia: The Trilogy

Recommended Posts

A tweet was posted yesterday containing only the word "Family" on the official Mafia twitter account. Today another tweet was posted that just said "Power." The last time they tweeted was on august 24th 2018.

 

Can we expect a Mafia 4 announcement this week?

Things are getting interesting.

 

So, before they announce anything, here's my predictions in case I get something right, I can brag about it even tho nobody cares: 70s Vegas, story set around casinos and gambling. Single main protagonist, but a different one in a DLC, Vito is back.

 

Something else that would be interesting is if they decide to "steal" GTA 6's so awaited 80s Miami setting, focusing it around drug trafficking and cartels. It makes sense, there is a lot of nostalgia for that era on the internet right now, if they get it right it would be an instant success. But seeing that Rockstar and 2K are from the same parent company, I think they'd rather give the more promissing plot to the most lucrative company with pretty much guaranteed success.

70s Vegas or 70s NYC.

 

I can't see 80s Miami that was more cartels focused than Mafia focused.

yeah but fu ck New York...

in terms of video games? NYC is so painfully boring. to say 'been there, done that' would be the understatement to end all understatements. it's been done so many times that it's starting to become a turn off.

 

the early days of Las Vegas would be incredible.

the Mafia obviously had significant ties to Vegas and arguably built the entire city into the image we recognize today. Vegas might even represent the height of Mafia power itself. aside from maybe the Prohibition era, the Mafia was definitely at it's most flashy, it's most public, and it's most mainstream when it turned its sights on Vegas. the star power they acquired from Hollywood ties... the legends of the Rat Pack... this might be the pinnacle for organized crime. it's been a long, steady series of setbacks ever since they lost control of the casinos. they went back underground to traditional crime and really stepped out of the public eye compared to the glitz and glamour of The Strip.

 

you know how some people swear by Goodfellas as the ultimate gangster flick? I still say that the epitome of gangster films was Casino.

Goodfellas is exactly like NYC in video games. it might be great. it might be done very well. but it's also super basic and not particularly original. I would love to see 70's Vegas.

If it's a new game, it better take it's clues from Mafia 1 and 2, and not from 3. I reckon it could possibly be a very good thing, but I'm not very hyped.

The Italian Mafia chapter in New York/Chicago has already been explored in the first two games. I'd definitely love to experience that era again, but I believe that this time the game should explore a new chapter. Vegas would be a perfect setting to explore, not only because of how influential the Mafia was in the city during the 40s-80s period, but also because it is unique and underrepresented in video games, including the whole Nevada desert backdrop. 

 

As for this teaser, I believe it mainly has to do with Mafia 2 remaster. A Mafia 4 announcement could potentially happen in Fall 2020 with a Fall 2021 release on next-gen consoles. However, given the ongoing global pandemic, plans might have been pushed as mo-cap and voice recording sessions must have been put on pause until further notice.

I warmed up to Mafia 3. It needed more to do in the open world for sure, and at first I wasn't into the story. On a second run through, I realized this is more Godfather 3 than Mafia 3, and I mean the Godfather games. In the second, you run around Florida and New York taking over different rackets, promoting and upgrading crew members etc. If they lean into that for Mafia 4, and spread out the big budget cutscenes again in favor of gameplay, I think it would be a solid game. The dream is of course to get another classic story like the first two games, just don't see that happening unfortunately.

I hope it's a new game but I wouldn't mind if it was a Mafia 2 remaster. Mafia 3 was very very very repetitive BUT FUN, but I'd rather have a linear story (with a free roam option) instead of go shoot go steal go take over that go do that and stuff.

i really hope its mafia 4. i really liked mafia 3. i know it got a lot of hate. but i never felt that way about it. i hope that it would be a mixture of mafia 2 and 3. i also love the idea of a vegas setting. as long as the setting is unique and not a location that is overused i will be happy. i love how they did new orleans.

They really need to overhaul the gameplay. I don't want a repeat of Mafia 3 again. Copy GTA if you have to with missions go to a mission marker and actually have mission givers and cutscenes. I don't want to take over racket after racket with a couple of unique missions thrown in.

I'm partly hyped about this, because somehow I'm hoping that they will find the perfect balance to create the perfect game. I'd like to see Mafia IV as more a blend of Mafia I and II - rich story-driven game with open-world aspects here and there. To throw in the open-world aspects, they can improve some of the few good features of Mafia III.

 

As far as it's rumored, the empire building system will be back. It's good news but they really need to come up with something more innovative. Mafia III's empire building system had some pros. Improving your relationship with the underbosses are important because they give you some perks, like: Burke has the ability to get the cops off your back, you can purchase weapons from Cassandra's mobile gun dealer, you can call Vito to call some of his guys for backup etc. However, something was lacking of core, in general. There was not much charming about expanding your empire (aside from the story reasons and kickup bonus) because the player was required to do repetitive sh*ts all over again - jack a truck full of electronics for Vito, do weed runs for Cassandra and steal moonshine for Burke. 

 

I'd prefer the empire building be something wider, more rewarding and fun to do. What about having different side missions depending on your rackets. For example, if you're running a prostitution racket, you'd be tasked with recruit more whores and taking out rival pimps. For drug rackets, you'd be hit other gangs' stashes, smuggle dope into the city, bribe the cops for safer entrance or set up your own lucrative drug deals. Running a blackmailing racket would optionally require for you to stir sh*t on powerful people - like taking embrassing photos of them, trying to find incriminating documents against them etc. If such aspects are mixed in, the player would have much better to do if they don't feel like progressing through the story... and if the developers want the new Mafia game to be an excessive open-world game, that is a must.

 

Going around the intel on the Internet, a new Mafia game is rumored to be in new development and it's allegedly gonna be set in 1970s Las Vegas - which is cool. All the glitz and gloom of that era Las Vegas sounds promising. I'm getting a real Casino-esque vibe on this one. However, some other sights are also worth exploring...

 

- 1970s Empire Bay: Imagine a Mafia flick that takes inspiration from Goodfellas. I'd like to see a Henry Hill type story. The protagonist is a non-Italian breed associate for one of the Three Families. Knowing that he will never be made, the protagonist pulls daring tricks to be a good earner and keep his head above water. I mean, it could be a good change to play as a family associate who won't ever get made.

 

-1980s Philadelphia: Philly was the battlefield for a series of inner conflicts in the city's crime family during the eighties. Would be a good tool to create a tragic story just like the ones of Mafia I and II.

They better be doing something special with the remastered. They build up for a ten year old game like it's Mafia 4. Maybe it is though and Mafia 2 will go along with it, but it's too good to be true.

Most people say a remaster for 2. I would like to see the first game remastered. But a 4th game would be understandable considering how the third part sucked so they are probably trying to fix their foul up quick with a sequel. But a sequel within 4 years? Seems too short.

I would happily take 2 remastered. I shamefully leave Mafia 2 out of my lists of "favourite games" which is a shame, because the more I think about it the more I realised how much I loved it on my play through. 

I bought it originally without any research or anything, I went in completely blind, and I loved it. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.

After the trainwreck of Mafia 3, this should definitely be a wait-and-see game. Whoever preorders it is a fool.

Meh. This series never hooked me. The only "GTA-Clone" to grab my attention over the past two decades was Sleeping Dogs. That one was good. It felt like it had its own identity. But anyways, if they pump out a good game why not pick it up?

Yeah, a Mafia II remaster for the game's 10th anniversary would be pretty cool. Maybe not as eye-catching as a new game, but defenetly something to make fans more than happy after the... oddities of Mafia 3.

Mafia is arguably not a GTA clone at all.

just because a game has an open world and cars to steal doesn't mean it's ripping off GTA.

This, a 70s Vegas setting would be perfect. We don't really have that many mob stories in that setting (Casino was great). And they really need to make the game like Mafia 2, not like the garbage that was Mafia 3 (a chore to play through)

Sleeping Dogs is great but Mafia 2 is as well (first one has aged poorly) imho, at least if you like mob stories. Its really not much of a GTA clone, much more linear and narrative focused. No parody/crazy stuff

Mafia 3 is one of the most disappointing games of this gen for me, followed my Mass Effect Andromeda

God I'd love a new Mafia. 70s/80s Vegas would be an instant buy for me.

 

Mafia 2 remastered, with all the cut features would be fantastic aswell. I heard they cut so many things.

 

I just hope whatever it is that it will be Next Gen only.
