Story direction... (Mafia spoilers)
How would you like to see the story go/unfold?
In Mafia we had Tommy telling the story in a flashback situation which saw him rise to the top. Personally, if the same thing happened in Mafia II I'd be disappointed. We already know what happens when you get to the top, and when the family turns on you...
We need something new, I'm curious as to what it is, and what others think/want it to be.
And how do you think it will be told? Through a flashback? Or in character real-time...? I ask because the story of Mafia was, until Half-life: Episode 2, the only game story to ever shock me. It was amazingly good, and the ending... I was shocked. I'd just hate to get a rehash of that in Mafia II, or something cheesy and horrible that I've seen a thousand times before.
Can`t see any spoilers...
I could have said out right "TOMMY DIES," but I figured I'd go for insinuation instead. Also, mentioned that the family tuns on you. Most, if not all, people here have played the game already I imagine, and I only put the warning there out of common courtesy.
In any case... you have no thoughts on how the story should be told/what should be told?
Well flashback isn`t bad idea, it`s nice classical way of telling story, we`ve seen it many times before, but we need something fresh, I think the story will be telling in real time, with a lot of cutscenes)

i don't know about you guys but i just love flashback stories, Flashback story in Mafia 1 was spot on =) Mafia FTW
Well.. flashback is so.. overused form, at least thats what I think. But in the realtime its complicated to show main character's thougts and opinions
well.. i hope that 2k czech will sort smt out
