I finished my recorded playthrough of Mafia 3. It’s definitely the longest game I’ve done a Let’s Play for, and I won’t lie that it wasn’t a bit of a chore to get through.
I usually do these videos as pure gameplay (no edits or cuts) but I had to do a lot of the missions offline simply because the mission structure of the game got sooooo monotonous.
It’s a shame because I think the gameplay really let down a great story with interesting characters.
Mafia 3 might be the best evidence that a great game must have equal parts of Good Story and Fun Gameplay. Because it fails so hard on one side, I can’t even bring myself to recommend it to my friends.
Still, I’m glad I played it. And hopefully it resulted in a worthy Let’s Play video series!
