    just thought i'd ask because they mentioned in a article on a different website that the main character (vito) and his fat friend were spoofs of 2 characters from the goodfellas movie

    Henry reminds me of Jimmy Conway
    Vito reminds me of Henry Hill
    Joe kinda reminds me of Tommy

    There is the scene in the first trailer of Frankie Potts dead in the trunk, almost a replica of the opening scene of Goodfellas with Billie Batts.

    i'm not mad or anything. i was just wondering why it was such a big deal but now i see why you were surprised. i don't pay attention to a certain game until 2 or 3 months before it comes out so i don't know some of the characters names

    Mintz hit it right on the dot.. and I think that's what they were kinda goin for. In a Mafia 2 developer note.. it said that Joe's kinda the guy who acts before he thinks.. who did that? Tommy. Henry's the top dog, the smart guy. Who was that?, Jimmy. and yeah Vito is Henry Hill. it's gonna be awesome.

    Vito cant be Henry Hill since Henry never killed anyone in the movie. Also he was half Irish without an Italian last name, and therefor couldn't be "made".

    I understand he isn't exactly the same, I was just drawing comparisons.

    If the game turns out to be anything like the movie then we all know what'll happen to joe.

    Them lil short-tempered midget bastards always get theres

    and why is that such a big deal? its a video game so i don't have to know the guys name
    Eh you dont gotta know the guys name but when youre talking about him it helps to know rather then refering to him as
    "the fat guy with the tropical shirt" on seond thought.. forgeddaboutit youre alright.

    Did anyone feel Mafia 1 also had a really strong Goodfellas vibe?
    Tommy- Henry Hill- obvious reasons (witness protection program)
    Paulie- Tommy- hot-headed, got what was comin to him
    Sam- Jimmy- Paranoid, took care of possible squealers
    Don Salieri- Paul Cicero- He looks just like him

    Sam looked and (towards the ending of mafia) acted more like tommy(pesci's character) and when he robbed that bank it showed he wanted more for himself and lost his cool then the inevitable happened.. He was killed which is almost similar to when henry, brought in jimmy and tommy to help him sell coke behind the bosses back. Except no one was killed but paulie C did turn his back on henry when he found out.

    WOW to many spoilers lol but it helps not to spoil you mooks incase you havent seen the film yet which if not youre crazy cause its a very good movie.

    I figured so, dont know why i was thinking of sam.

    Its been awhile since i played the first game. Last time i played it was a yr ago.

    Yeah i still got the game and i watched GF twice(right now) watching it on spiketv again. I really love the movie its what the mob really is none of this fantasy bull****, it is what it is.

    thanks for correcting me on sam.

    no prob. Goodfellas is great. If you liked that, read the book that it was based off of, Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi
