The IRA is in Mafia 3

Many are offended by this inclusion.

I’m not familiar enough with Mafia to know if this was tackled well. I even have a current debate as to whether Call of Duty covers terrorism well in its Modern Warfare franchise, although I expect the quality of writing to be way better than in say, Call of Juarez or other Deep Silver products.

Here is what Eurogamer wrote.

In contrast, I am interested in supporter of the IRA’s ideas but not their violence writing articles about this. This was covered well in the great Daniel Day-Lewis’ In the Name of the Father. where the government was setting people up on a sort of blacklist as IRA members much like the US, the Red Scare and Communists.
