Gangsters have always attracted the attention of the film world. Among the films that we see as the best in history, The Godfather series is always mentioned. This theme, which has attracted the attention of the cinema world for many years, has of course also found reflections in the gaming world. There are those who handle this theme with their own story and have released games of famous movies, and we have come across many mafia-themed games. In this list, we have compiled the games that successfully represent this theme.
10. Scarface: The World Is Yours
While we usually don't think of good games when we think of film adaptations, the examples we come across are quite successful when it comes to gangsters and the mafia. Legendary actor Al Pacino's film Scarface, which is engraved on all our minds, and its funny lead role: Tony Montana. A game that appeals not only to fans of the movie, but also to all gamers who like this theme, Scarface: The World Is Yours.
9. Mafia II
Mafia II, where we witness the story of Vito Scaletta, going to prison and rising in the criminal world; is the best game of the series according to some with its vivid world, impressive story.
8. The Godfather
As we said in the introduction, when we say the best movies of all time, we can't not mention The Godfather series. Of course, it is natural for a film that has been so successful on the white screen to be recreated in the game world. The Godfather game, made by EA in 2006 and based on the rise of a fictional character named Aldo Trapani in the Corleone Crime Family, is one of the best adaptations.
7. Sleeping Dogs
It is also necessary to mention the continent Asia when we talk about gangsters and mafia, it would not be appropriate not to include Sleeping Dogs in this list, which handles the criminal world of Hong Kong beautifully. Does the story in which we saw an undercover cop forget his mission in the criminal world sound familiar to you too?
6. Saints Row: The Third
If Saints Row is a series that is on its own line and goes into the best, the third game is a turning point. The fact that it is about a group of charismatic gangsters also made us put it on this list. Saints Row: The Third, with attractive graphics, non-stop action gameplay and story.
5. Saints Row 4
Take all of what we just said about Saints Row:The Third and multiply it several times. We are no longer just a mafia; our character starts as a head of state and is also a superhero. Saints Row 4, where we fly around the city and fight aliens.
Mafia has always been loved since the day it came out with its impressive story. The outdated gameplay and graphics were no longer useful for playing, so perhaps it turned out to be the best remake in the history. We had the opportunity to look again at the story we liked with its current gameplay and eye-catching graphics.
3. Yakuza: Like A Dragon
When it was learned that the seventh game of the Yakuza series would be a JRPG, it was met with prejudice by everyone. However, when the game came out, it also turned out that these judgments were unnecessary. Yakuza: Like A Dragon is a different gangster game than we are used to with our different and fun main character Ichiban Kasuga.
2. Yakuza 0
Yakuza 0 that changed the series to its old settings. Among the games about brutal gangs, as we said a little earlier, the Yakuza series is somewhere else. After all, giving karaoke machines a place in such toughness and villainy is not something every game can do.
1. Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2, where we see the ruthless gangsters of the Wild west, the tragedy of the Van der Linde Gang; is the last member of our list with its magnificent story about Arthur Morgan and visuals that could be works of art.
