“It’s 1968 and the rules have changed. After years in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth. Family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. “
The only experience I have with the Mafia series is with the first Mafia. You see kids, back in 2010 I planned on attending PAX East, and back in those days I was an avid blogger on IGN. Well, someone at IGN organized a “community Mafia II demo” of sorts, during which we, the bloggers, would have a chance to play Mafia II and have our thoughts posted on IGN.com. PRETTY FREAKIN’ RAD, right?
Knowing this, and having no prior experience with the first Mafia, I drove my ass over to GameStop and found a used copy. I bought it with hopes of “catching up” with the series before my demo with Mafia II at PAX East. I, uh, played for a few hours before I became bored and shelved it. But in the end I went to PAX East, played Mafia II with fellow IGN bloggers and somewhere, my thoughts are plastered on IGN.com.
From what I remember the series played a lot like Grand Theft Auto, but like I said, I only dinked around with it for a few hours. I generally have a hard time staying hooked on modern-era games, so I’m not sure how I’ll do with Mafia III, but we’ll see. The trailer didn’t give us a lot to go off of.
