L.A. Noire is a very different game. I also believe a lot of people who don't follow videogames as closely as you or I will be surprised as to what exactly this game is. I'm about three hours in. I must say, L.A. Noire is one hell of a game. Team Bondi nailed the feeling have actually talking to people. Mass Effect came close to achieving this. However, L.A. Noire is on a totally different level. Characters emote with realism. I feel like i learn a lot about individuals by reading between the lines of what they say. The face mapping technology delivers a lot of life to this game. But so far, I haven't called bullshit on anything characters have told me based on any nervous impulses they have.
