LA Noire

Rockstar Games, the publisher responsible for the best open-world console games like last year’s huge hit Red Dead Redemption and some game called Grand Theft Auto (nice official site!), just released their latest masterpiece, LA Noire.  Inspired by 50’s-60’s era film noir cop thrillers, I’d compare this to getting to play your own version of LA Confidential, which is pretty fucking sweet.  Production values are really high too – they used MotionScan tech to capture all the actor’s faces with amazing detail.  It also became the first game to be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival after spending almost 7 years in production.  The chaos is a bit more controlled than GTA though since you do play a detective, and there are some investigative elements too.  Even my wife thinks it looks cool which means I’m going to have her back-seat gaming for hours until she falls asleep on the couch – c’est la vie.
