you dont even have to call it Godfather if you dont want to but for God sakes, bring it back. Godfather 2 did alot of things right with giving you power to send your guys out to take over rackets, customize their clothes and weapons, and paying men to protect rackets, it really made you feel like a true mob boss. NO OTHER MOB GAME has captured this kind of mob goodness in a freeroam fashion.

....and do it in Vegas, its gotta be Vegas....the casino's, the women, the gambling....heck, make the whole strip and make every building and restaurant enterable since itll be next gen. give us the modern day suits, the fedoras, the leather jackets, you know, all the good stuff....bring back the tommy gun, the revolver, you know, all that good crap.

i personally think Next Gen is RIPE for this type of game, the last mafia game was Mafia 2 and it lacked in EVERY area. this needs to come out.

As long as you play as a new guy with an original story.

I liked the first one's feeling of climbing through the ranks. Once you're at the top, it doesn't feel like there's much to do.

Scarface was a really good Mob boss style game like Godfather if you have not played it yet.
Original Xbox game but runs better on the 360 in BC.

I'm all for this. If they add a co-op story mode, then it's a day one purchase for me.

yeah a new guy and new story. there doesnt even Need to be a story though, youre a career criminal, you recruit other criminals and you takeover and control rackets and locations.

id love to see a Mob Economy though...like each mob have its own budget and when you take a mobs rackets, they lose money until theyre Broke, in which case you can A. offer them a truce and maybe Work with them and increase your numbers or decide to wipe them off the map Completely.

and All the old stuff from the old Godfather games: paying off cops and agents, hitman missions and favors and a feature that Randomly has a mob family send a single hitman to attack you in public or at a safehouse.

i actually Have Scarface and it is a GREAT game that does basically everything i like and it Looks pretty good, the ONLY THING i hate about it is i could stand infront of a guy with a pistol and hed shoot me in the chest 30 times before i died. the Godfather games were good with Damage, if a guy shot you in the shoulder with a shotgun, 80% of your health would be gone. if he shot you in the CHEST directly, you were Dead, no question.

but i LOVED the death and money system in that game, it was Perfect. if you died with $50,000 on your person and you didnt get a chance to put it in the bank, you would LOSE IT ALL and be set back to a previous save, ALL games should have that death system.
