I haven't played a game in a long time. I'm getting old and have grown sick of the same old - same old being regurgitated over and over. The last game I played and enjoyed was Fallout 3. I tried Badlands and thought it sucked...entertaining cut-scenes and flashy npc introductions, but otherwise, been there done that...yawn. The fact that everyone seemed to rave about it made me think my PC gaming days were over. In fact, I pretty much only visit this site for the "Out Of The Blue" section (which is usually fascinating and/or good for a laugh). Yeah I know, I'm a big old downer with a soggy diaper.
However, reading about Mafia II has suddenly changed my outlook. I'm totally F###ing pumped about this game! Mafia 1 was an absolute treasure of a game created by people who obviously know how to entertain and is without a doubt one of the very best PC games ever made...at least in my opinion. Old jalopies, tommy-guns and an open bustling city are just the bee's knees. I would buy this sequel even if it was merely a mod of the first title with a new story. This is one case where even regurgitation would be delicious....yum yum. I can't wait to get my stiff wrinkly hands on this baby!
