The Godfather Sequels?

Computer and Video Games (thanks Frans) has word that plans may be in place for sequels to The Godfather even before the mob movie tie-in hits stores. According to the speculative story, they may even make a third installment in the game series (ignoring the object lesson offered by the third The Godfather movie). Word is:
Speaking to BBC News, Godfather executive David DeMartini revealed that he plans to work on at least two more Godfather titles, and that he hopes to establish it as one of EA's biggest franchises. "We went into this venture taking into consideration the establishment of a brand new franchise," he said, "Our intention is to make two and three."

I've heard that "The Godfather" is quite lifeless and lacks a soul.

I'm not expecting much myself (will hold out for Mafia II for that), but one thing I've read that intrigues me is that the game actually follows the movie very closely, and really doesn't mess with key scenes at all, so they're all in the game.

Meanwhile, you're not playing one of the key characters in the movie - more of a background personality - so the result is that you frequently find yourself playing along and then suddenly realizing that you're now taking part in one of those classic scenes from the film.. As a fan, I think that could be pretty cool, actually.

..except, of course, for any of the scenes featuring Michael.. Good thing he's not really an important character Or a recognizable personality I'm sure it'll hardly be noticeable

Anyway, as I say, I'm not really expecting much, but I still might give it a whirl if only for the chance to recreate some of those scenes..

I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now, even though you broke my heart and killed me.
