What's on your mind?
Just starting the Trilogy and all I can say is how did I miss these? Amazing.
I have my thoughts on 3. They were mafia bosses and were very powerful in their times and if alive would still be.
#1: Lucky Luciano
Lucky Luciano was the mobster who split the mafia families in new york. Lucky Luciano was the most powerful chief of American organized crime in the early 1930s.
#2: Al Capone
Al Capone is one of the most known mobsters and the most famous especially in Chicago. He was also known as Scarface because at a bar someone had attacked him and left a scar on his face. He was the most feared boss who ever lived.
#3: Vito Genovese
Vito Genovese was one of the most powerful and deadliest Dons. What else can I really say besides he was very powerful?
My favorite is Tommy Angelo.
1. A City based on Cleveland in the 1970s
For those who are unaware Cleveland during the 1970s was the site of the last “traditional” mob war featuring car bombs, drive by shooting, and high profile assassinations. This occurred when capo John Nardi and Irish Mobster Danny Greene felt slighted by the Cleveland Crime Family and cooperated to divide the city among themselves. The violence utilized during the gang way and the death of Danny Greene attracted National media attention which played a substantial part in the decline of the Italian Mob within the United States and would because of this be a perfect addition to the Mafia series.
2. A city based on 1970s Las Vegas
This one is certainly the least original out of my other setting ideas but it’s for a good reason as Las Vegas had gained infamy as a City built by organized crime. A mafia game in this setting could play up real life events in a fictional setting where the main character receives his marching orders from the luxurious suite of a Casino. For inspirational watch the Movie Casino or read up about the infamous mobster Bugsy Siegel.
3. A city based on Belfast in the 1970s
This may seem like an odd choice at first glance as Belfast during the 70s was suffering from the Troubles which was a series of terrorist attacks waged for ethno-political reasons and seems like a major departure from previous games. I’d argue however that this setting would fit perfectly within the setting and here’s why, Northern Ireland and even the wider Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom became a hotbed for organized Crime in the 70s due to no small part of the Troubles. During the Conflict paramilitaries both Republican and Loyalist engaged in criminal activities such as extortion and drug running to fund their campaigns. This backdrop would be perfect for Mafia IV as it ups the ante a bit when your concerned of controlling districts from rival factions as well as SAS reprisal. I may feel this way because I’m partial to the era and find the Troubles fascinating but if handled properly it could make and outstanding story and an enjoyable game.

For someone interested in historical trivia.
I was listening to the ingame radio news report in the Mafia DE mission "Omerta" talking about the real-life tragedy of the crash of airship USS Akron off the coast of New Jersey around midnight in high stormy weather. As also mentioned ingame, the survivors were rescued by German tanker Phoebus. Nice detail hearing about a Herbert V Wiley who was rescued, and there's film footage how him speaking with some very cold and shocked survivors to the press.
Strange though according to the highlighted map icon it says "April 3rd, 1933" except it was midnight April 4th it went down.
I dunno if it's worth, or if anyone wants to add this bit of trivia to the section. Maybe correlative to the storm in the previous mission "A Trip To The Country" even though that was (again according to the map highlight) Feb 2nd, 1933; much before the tragic event.

Apparently this is where Detective Tony Rossi came from:
I remember it used to be on the Empire Bay Police Department page, but we removed it because we couldn't find a source for it at the time.
