Run from the Mob...or with Them
Face it, we all love a bit of crime, as long as it doesn’t brush against our actual lives. And nothing is more intruiging than peeking into the world of gangsters and mobsters, whether it be on TV, at the movies, or on the news. Take the HBO series The Sopranos and its clamorous popularity. We are fascinated with mobsters, both in real life and on screen, seeking their good sides, savoring their bad deeds, and waiting to see a vulnerable crack in their hard shells.
Mobster games are a way to dip into the world of crime syndicates without getting blood on your hands, or ending up at the bottom of the river with lead boots on. Climb your way up the organization’s ladder with Made in Mafia. Have extortionary fun with gangster strategy games, mapping out heists and programming trafficking plots, while wiping out anyone who gets in your way. For example, become a real-life Godfather like in the Corleone empire, ruling with steel nerves and relentless brutality in Mafia Battle.
Mobsters are known for having a paranoid streak, too. For good reason. Turncoats and stool pigeons are around every corner. Try to wiggle into the world of bootleggers and crime bosses like Al Capone by becoming their trusted chaufeur with Mafia Driver, a clever gangster game. Most of those captured by the Italian mob, La Cosa Nostra, end up in a shallow grave. But if you keep your wits sharp and guns blazing, you may be able to stay alive and pocket some power in our gangster RPG games.
Sometimes the wrong guy gets nabbed and in the case of Cover Orange Journey: Gangsters, it is a case of mistaken fruit. Kids can try to help Orange dodge bullets and avoid criminals, while he searches for a way out of an adventure gone wrong.
