Hi friends,

I've just uploaded this video covering some of the things that make Mafia 1 so unique.
No talking in it, just text commentary.

I hope you guys enjoy and consider subscribing

There are many. Here's a few more.

- Using the clutch will allow a car to roll faster than its transmission can drive.

- If you kill a driver while he is using the horn, gas, or brake or steering wheel his body will continue to do what it was doing.

- You can do J turns with the hand brake depending on the handling and power of the car you are driving. You can also do donuts.

None of this is scripted. It's all part of the driving model.

You know a good game when it still surprises you after more than a decade.

Just today while I was goofing around in freeride, I had mobsters as well as police chase me on foot. At one point a cop accidentally shot a gangster in the crossfire, and the two of them actually started shooting at each other. I've never seen that before.

That's strange

I always thought the police were programmed to only target the player rather than the gangsters regardless of any situation, and such a feature first appeared in Mafia 2.

Yeah, hence my surprise. I've tried it a couple times and was able to repeat the situation. Thing is, I only noticed when I was clipping below the roads long enough. Otherwise I'd have been shot and killed myself.

I thought it simply happened when a gangster was accidentally hit in the crossfire by a cop, but on two occasions they just randomly started shooting them at some point.

It's weird how it's only triggered after a while and not instantly, though, it seemed that the cops didn't shoot back at them.

Maybe it's the same bug (?) that causes aggressive drivers going after police officers if the player has a wanted level? Thinking
