Since you guys are here, and taking our suggestions I thought it might be a good idea to create want us fans really want in Mafia II...Also please don't mention over disscussed topics like driving, I'm talking about new features to put in the game (while there's still time)...
So I'll begin;
Request Ideas for Mafia II
-Have haircut barbers (ex: give the player options to have swayed back hair, combed hair, flat hair, ect..Give the player a sence of customization)
-Beard Options (to keep this realistic I was thinking maybe you need to grow a beard in the game as it progresses and then you can go to barber and pay for a different styles from a mustache, to mutton chops...)
-Tatooe parlor (now I don't know if they even existed in the 40's & 50's but if they did it'd be nice to get some to show your life story)
-Make an RPG element (what I like so much in GTA: San Andreas was that if you ate to much there would be a consequence, if you worked out alot in the gym you'd get stronger and bigger. So at least give the player a consequence if he eats to much food like Vito runs slower or what, and same thing for the gym let the player also gain muscle while he's there)...
-Make Guns break from time to time (like in System Shock 2)
-Make various NPC police models (I find that in games like in Saints Row, or GTA 4 that they forget to make various NPC police models)
-If you ever get a speeding ticket and stop for the police, allow the police officer to check around the car and in your trunk to see if your hiding anything special *cough* a dead broad for example *cough*
-Give Vito a love angle (and perhaps give the option for him to date girls?)
-Make a mission (or just allow the player in general) to fly in a airplane, or use a speedboat
-Don't cheap out on the ending like some other games (bioshock, bioshock, bioshock, bioshock, did I mention bioshock???)
-Make a nice ending credits like in the movies (please don't cheap out on the end, please!)
...I can't really think of much more...hope you consider some of them (though who am I kidding?)
