I've been watching Super Best Friends Play L.A. Noire, which is highly entertaining, and it's bringing up fond memories I had with L.A. Noire, what I think was a pretty flawed but one of the more interesting ideas from last gen.
I think this is a good game with interesting ideas that save it from mediocrity. The game was clearly made with a lot of passion and hard work behind it. I'd even say this game is very ambitious...so ambitious they barely know what to do with it. The open world is empty and a lot of the shootouts are boring. But the Ace Attorney-esque interrogation and investigation segments are a lot of fun. I also really love the main detective characters and even the performances from those particular actors. Oh and it's a no brainer the setting is fucking baller.
I don't know, maybe actually playing the game would leave me less positive about the game but it's been on my mind lately and I can't hep but think of the possibilities of a much improved sequel. New York Noire? I'd really like to see Rockstar do this again but a real knockout. At least 9/10 tier.
