Marston or Phelps? A Comparison of L.A. Noire and Red Dead Redemption

Rockstar Games is hitting its stride now. Two straight games that are genre defining, and potentially revolutionary, they’ve released now, both of which to fan and critical acclaim. But which one is better? Team Bondi’s homage to film noire or Rockstar San Diego’s western classic?

I’ve already stated on this blog that Red Dead Redemption is among my favorite games of all time, and L.A. Noire was my most anticipated game of 2011. But, which game will I say is better?

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

Greetings true believers!

Once again loyal minions, time for another enthralling FooBear408 article. I’d like to think I’m the resident Andy Rooney around these parts…maybe just not as old and certainly not as grouchy. Definitely more handsome, and with the stockpile of jokes – I’m a pretty safe bet. Fortunately, for me – I have Mrs. FooBear, so I’m taken. I’ve also written on subjects including, but not limited to, my infatuation for my fat boy model 80gb to the current hot topic that’s lighting up the message boards today: the great PSN fiasco.

Don’t fret – this isn’t another one of those articles.

I’ve been doing some serious thinking about the state of gaming lately. Actually on some titles coming out, some types that are already out, and ones that right on the cusp of coming out. One of these titles, “L.A Noire”, for instance has got me hook, line, and sinker. I think the reason why this game has its meat hooks into me is because it’s original. It’s never been done before. I recognize that, and want to be part of it, so I can go on the message boards and shout from the rooftops about how much I want to be its baby’s daddy and/or completely blast it anonymously and tell everyone how much it stinks.

I don’t think that’ll be the case, though. Tell me I’m wrong.
