5 Books to get you in the mood for LA Noire.

IGN writes: How excited am I for L.A. Noire to come out? I would answer "so excited," except that would be the antithesis of the reaction of every cynical, too-cool-for-school noir novel star on this list. And I love noir novels so much that I fantasize about being those protagonists, even though I share exactly none of their bad-ass qualities, except perhaps that all-important healthy dose of cynicism. If you're interested in L.A. Noire -- or interested in getting interested -- these are five books that will get you in the mood.

The story is too old to be commented.

Books on a video game web site? Blasphemy!

Oh well, I'm gonna go back to reading The Memory Game...

Does any1 know 5 movies to get in the mood for L.A. Noire?

LA Confidential was the first movie I thought of when I first heard about this game. Watch is 5 times and you will be ready for LA Noire.

Double Indemnity
Chinatown

Basically any and all Film Noir films (especially in the 40's-80's), and Mafia 2 has also set me in the right mood for this game.

You want to get ready for LA Noire and don't want to read or watch these classics? well how about some parodies of film noir like The black bird with George Segal or If you want something that takes place in the era of LA Noire you could always watch "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" another great parody is "Dead men don't wear plaid" with Steve Martin.
