One of the more surprising Gamescom reveals for me this year, Mafia III has been announced for 2016 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Mafia III stars Lincoln Clay, a Vietnam vet with a passion for family and revenge.
I must admit that I did not expect Mafia III to be anything like this. Kudos to Hangar 13 for trying something new in a sea of Italian mafia movies, games, and TV shows, but I’m not sure how I feel about any of it.
The main character seems to act more like a despicable villain than anything, and while yes, men in the mafia are generally horrible people, the endearing thing about a story around such men is that they somehow manage to be like-able.
I guess I’ll see how much I care about Lincoln when the game drops next year. For now, I’m hoping that Mafia III will capture the same magic that Mafia II did a few years ago, as I still think about some of the more wonderful aspects of that game to this day.
