UNICO National calls for release of mobster simulator to be halted calling it "a pile of racist nonsense"; Take-Two Chairman calls game "socially responsible."
...
The organization's president, Andre DiMino, accused Take-Two of "inappropriate and insulting perpetuation of the pervasive and denigrating stereotype of organized crime being the exclusive domain of Italians and Italian-Americans."

Read it all here (http://uk.gamespot.com/news/6274095.html).

Watch, soon this Andre DiMino guy will make Take 2 an offer they can't refuse. ;)

MTV has a show called the Jersey Shore that sets the italian people back 100 years every time it airs, and they're *****ing about a Mafia game?

Sometimes I really don't understand the world.

If it's any consolation; half the time I don't even know what I'm doing here :p

I'm partly Italian and I could care less about the stereotypes in Mafia II.

This is more ridiculous than complaining 'bout sex in Mass Effect...

Lol i remember this , the problem wasn't that they make silly complaints , the problem is that they make complaints Only On Video Games ...

The same complaints could have been attributed to films , novels , culture , but that's not cool , blaming on video games is Manly ! ...
