Creative Inspirations #5: Rockstar Game’s “L.A. Noire”

Mystery, intrigue, murder, conspiracy, gunfights, romance, and intense interrogations. These qualities are all of the amazing gifts last years hit video game L.A. Noire brought to fans when it hit shelves. Brought to gamers by Rockstar Games, the people behind the previous years Game of the Year, Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire follows in the footsteps of Cole Phelps, an L.A. Detective who rise through the ranks of the Los Angeles police department, connecting the dots on a conspiracy involving L.A.’s most notorious criminals and most famous citizens, all the while solving cases in various divisions, such as Traffic, Homicide, Vice, and Arson. 

This game utilized some of the best features of a true mystery. It had amazing character development for both the main character Cole Phelps and the people he interacted with during his investigations. It had amazing music that reflected both the era and the mood of the action around you. It showcased the amazing scenary of 1940’s L.A., with bright days and gloomy nights that reflected both the bright points of L.A. life and the dark, seedy underbelly of the city during that time. And the plot of the game continued to twist and turn as you advanced, and just when you think you’ve put all the clues together for an answer, the story throws a monkey wrench in your plans and introduces a new crime or new clue that points in a completely different direction. That is the wonder of L.A. Noire, and why this is Creative Inspiration #5.
