2) L.A Noire
L.A Noire is a third person game similar to the Mafia series or Godfather but very much better than both of them based on graphics and authenticity as well as gameplay. La Noire takes us back to the 1940’s where the city is filled with crime and mob wars. The game centers on postwar Los Angeles. The designers have made very good observations while recreating the cities and each detail within it. It is as if we were really back there and at some point we are actually able to smell the air as well. Apart from the games like Mafia and Godfather you don’t get to be on the Mob side instead you are a detective who have to walk through a lot of crime scenes and sad situations where you will have to work out the case and solve the crimes.
Intuitions are a major part of this game, it can be used to highlight and see where the important evidences lie while inspecting a crime scene. There are many gunfights, foot chases and car chases which you can attend to as side missions which pops up on the radio which you can either choose to attend to or not.

There are a lot of forgone vehicles that are bought back into being in this game. The weapons are one of the most important elements to games like L.A Noire and developers have looked into that as well with perfection. The thing that sucks about guns is that there is no heads up display to tell how many rounds of bullets are left, however there is an alert when your ammunition is low. For the Melee Attacks you can use your Fists, pipe and Switchblade and for the handguns you have Star Model P, Colt M1911, Browning Hi-Power, 38 Detective Revolver, Smith & Wesson Model 27, FN Browning 1922, M1917 Revolver.
The Two rifles you can find include Browning automatic rifle, M1 Garand. You do get to mess around with a shot gun The 12 Gauge Pump action shotgun which is pretty powerful and useful at times as well. And the common sub machine guns include a Thompson M1. The gun fights are very easy and you don’t have to be a pro gamer or a shooter gamer at all to shoot your targets and get away with it. You can use the standard cover and pop up shoot methods to put down you enemies.
The Noire Story is one of the most brilliant things about this game. Apart from an action pact adventure this game could touch you and make live and die along with it. Even though pro gamers could find some minor faults with the face graphics details and the investigation part, and even if the game doesn’t rate up as a professional game due to the easy gameplay it offers, the game outstands as one of the top games so far and that puts it in the list of the games you should be playing right now.
