The Godfather is a 2006 open world Action-adventure game video game developed by Visceral Games (formerly EA Redwood Shores) and published by Electronic Arts. It was originally released in March 2006 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, and the original Xbox. It was later released for the PlayStation Portable as The Godfather: Mob Wars, Xbox 360 as The Godfather, Wii as The Godfather: Blackhand Edition, and PlayStation 3 as The Godfather: The Don's Edition.

Based upon the 1972 film The Godfather, the game follows a non-canon character, Aldo Trapani, who is recruited into the Corleone family and works his way up its ranks while seeking revenge against his father's killers. The story of the game intersects with the film on numerous occasions, depicting major events from Aldo's perspective, or showing him perform actions that happened off-screen; for example, he avenges Bonasera's daughter, drives Vito Corleone to the hospital after he is shot, plants the gun for Michael Corleone to kill Sollozzo and Captain McCluskey, and places the horse's head in Jack Woltz's bed. Although the game was condemned by Francis Ford Coppola, who claimed Paramount Pictures never told him about its development or asked for his input, it does feature voice acting from several stars of the film, including James Caan as Sonny Corleone, Robert Duvall as Tom Hagen and Abe Vigoda as Salvatore Tessio. Marlon Brando also recorded dialogue for Vito Corleone, in what would be his final acting job, but his ill health made most of his recordings unusable.

Known Issues

Input may stop working after the intro screen

After the intro you may be greeted with a message asking you to reconnect your controller to continue, there's no known fix for this. However, you can try this workaround: after booting the game, minimise the game window and open pad settings in RPCS3, then select on your controller under the "Handlers" dropdown (even if it's already been selected). Then hit save and close the pad settings window and switch back to the game window. Input should start working again after this.
