With a game so heavy with story elements will this alienate gamers simply after some action?
Same way metal Gear Solid 4 did? lol course i won't i respect a well told story =D
A lot of gamers skipped the MGS cutscenes, but in this game it seems the cutscenes are more integral with the gameplay.
The disagree wearn't from me and if alot of gamers did skip it then alot of gamers missed out on one of the best animated story's ever told
I didn't skip a single cutscene on my first MGS4 play through. More cutscenes usually mean a better story, and story matters the most in single player games. So I'm all for this.
what? where did that "facts" came from?
Im glad there are new games featuring more cutscenes. I love to play an interactive story. I love story driven games and this game is shaping up to be a master piece. Do cutscenes alienates certain people? Why not make them skipabble. Problem solved.
Badz my facts come from the numerous moaners who complained about the hours of cutscenes when the game launched - where were you? Also numerous friends skipped the scenes and just played the game. Also, you guys who frequent this site, are most likely hardcore gamers who can appreciate a good story and a bit of depth. Whereas there are many more casuals who a) don't have time to wade through hours of non playable moments, and b) would rather point and shoot - hence the popularity of shooters like Black Ops etc.
I know I didn't skip any cutscenes, as I would have missed the entire story
It wont bother me none, im just waiting patiently for it to release.
Who the fuck cares about action gamers and why should the LA noir devs care? They can keep playing their action games.
PRAISE HIM! agree
its more on linear. So its less action adventure like gta and red dead and more.......
If there is no need for a controller for say, half the game, then it gets annoying.
Alan Wake didn't alienate me. Neither did Heavy Rain. Or Deadly Premonition (Yes, LOL, I played it, don't judge me?) I'm a person who can appreciate a good story driven game or get into heavy brain-numbing action game. But needless to say, my hype level for L.A. Noire is through the ROOF. I cannot WAIT to play it!
I Like Cutscenes As Long As They Are Good Cutscenes And Have To Do With The Story, I Have Never Skipped A Cutscene Ever As I Feel Im Going To Miss Out On Things
As long as they are well integrated into the rest of the game I don't mind. Can't wait to play this beast of a game!
screw that. there's space for both story fans and actions fans, or even fans that like both, like me. i can watch something like king's speech, black swan, inception, etc, but i don't mind the occasional transformers, g.i. joe as well.
I don't know about "action gamers" but tell me an engaging story and I'm hooked and entertained.
MGS4 had loads of lengthy cutscenes but I enjoyed watching them. But I'm guessing LA Noire has many cutscenes related to the actual gameplay so it can't be skipped. Hmm.
If the story is good and I expect nothing less than amazing I have 0 problems with this whatsoever.
Well, I hope it does. Not every game needs to be an action game.
I love cutscenes when they're well directed and advance the story.
I won't have problem with this, I never skipped MGS4 cutscenes.
If this game was only on PS3, it would have received so much flak, just like Heavy Rain did. I guess standards change when games are only on certain platforms.
Yeah I remember an article stating that Yakuza 4 having 6 hours and some people were bashing it.
Sadly, it was my generation probably. The generation that loves Justin Bieber and loved Miley Cyrus.
