The Godfather - Don's Edition, a 2006 open world action-adventure video game developed by EA Redwood Shores and published by Electronic Arts, is my pick for the Best Game ever made.
The culture significance of the movie, had inspired EA Games to develop an amazing game. Below are some listed remarks of the game:
GameSpot's Greg Mueller scored the PC, PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions 8.1 out of 10, calling the game "a satisfying, lengthy adventure," and arguing "it remains faithful to the classic film while managing to create a compelling story of its own [...] it handles the source material respectfully and manages to offer enough new content to feel like more than just a by-the-numbers adaptation of the movie."
IGN's Douglass C. Perry scored the PC, PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions 7.9 out of 10, with the Xbox version finishing as runner-up in the March 2006 "Xbox Game of the Month" award, losing to Far Cry Instincts: Evolution. Perry praised the concept of placing a new character in the existing narrative; "Much of the story is carefully untarnished, so when you see pivotal scenes, they will be left relatively untouched. You'll hear and see these key scenes unfolding in front of you, but you'll be in the house, the car, the church, or the hospital as a close associate, rather than a bystander. You'll feel like an insider who's part of a great powerful narrative, and the feeling is eerily remarkable." Although he was critical of the melee combat and the driving portions of the game, he called the extortion system "awesome fun." He concluded, "people looking for a perfect game will be disappointed [but] there are elements that totally stand out from any similar games in this genre, from the extortion system to the business take-over model. Despite obvious areas in need of improvement, I had a blast playing The Godfather."
GameSpy's Will Tuttle scored the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions 3.5 out of 5. Praising the use of the license, he wrote "the game is best viewed as a complementary addition to the Godfather universe," calling it "an ultimately entertaining sandbox game that doesn't really do much to help or hurt the license."
EA Games completely made a mess of The Godfather 2 (Video Game). The game was boring, too easy, ugly and felt like an unfinished sandbox game. Thus lead to poor critical and commercial performance for the game, and EA decided to scrap The Godfather 3 (Video Game).
Rockstar Games, the best open world gaming franchise of all time, has the best team to rectify the situation and give us the game we deserve. This petition was made for everybody that would like to, not only relive the movie, but to reinvent it in a way that will transcend through the generations.
The Godfather (Movie) was the highest-grossing film of 1972 and was for a time the highest-grossing film ever made. It won the Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor (Brando) and Best Adapted Screenplay (for Puzo and Coppola). Its seven other Oscar nominations included Pacino, James Caan, and Robert Duvall for Best Supporting Actor and Coppola for Best Director. It was followed by sequels The Godfather Part II (1974) and Part III (1990).
The Godfather is widely regarded as one of the greatest films in world cinema and one of the most influential, especially in the gangster genre. It was selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in 1990, being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and is ranked the second-greatest film in American cinema (behind Citizen Kane) by the American Film Institute.
I call upon every person, who enjoyed the movie and appreciate the cultural impact the film made, to kindly sign this petition and have Rockstar Games re imagine our beloved movie in a video game format. Rockstar Games shares passion and creativity through art, and I strongly believe that no other gaming franchise would do our movie justice, when adapting it into a video game.
