I have been gathering my true thoughts LA Noire as of late and I am realizing more and more I don't enjoy it nearly as much as I did during the first 5 hours of the game. I am not going to go into it just yet, as I want to put all those thoughts into a flushed out piece at a later date. The thing that truly cemented this in my mind though is the recommendation to play the original Puzzle Agent. It was 3 dollars on Steam today. The sense of satisfaction I have been getting from solving puzzles in order to get to the next story point is so much more rewarding than the often trial and error methods LA Noire presents.
I know that these are two games really have nothing to do with one another, but I draw the comparison based on the level of enjoyment the 3 dollar game is giving me in relation to the high budget blockbuster product. If you have not played it yet, please go and get the original Puzzle Agent as it is a great experience and will give you both some good laughs and some feeling of accomplishment that you might be missing elsewhere.
