What with all the flaming going on at Jevrio's blog post, I think it's almost necessary to kick off a discussion thread on L.A. Noire.
I personally was not even going to touch this game because I was under the impression that it was another Rockstar open-world GTA-esque game. I was not a fan of GTA IV. I appreciated it for what it was, but I got bored relatively quickly because it was not my type of game. This is why I ahve also not played Red Dead Redemption. Two days ago, however, I decided to actually go out of my way and find out what L.A. Noire was, and found out that it was an adventure game, not a shooter. I haven't played it yet, so I can only limit my opinion to what I can get from reviews, but it looks like something I've not really seen before, and that makes me excited for it.
Everyone's opinion is respected, so feel free to put them out there. Be respectful to others, though. I've been guilty of not always being respectful myself, so call me a hypocrite if you like, but at least I know I am. Most of all, say what you think of the game.
