I agree about LA Noire... holy crap was that tedious. I didn't even want to finish the game. I got close to the end and just lost interest all together. I traded it in.

I have Red Dead Redemption as well, and I'll probably never know how that game ends because the beginning bores me so much that I really don't have much desire to continue it.

I guess I'm too simple minded.

However, I played Infamous 2 twice (once for each karma) and it was awesome both times. I Had no issues with it's length and everything just went along so smoothly and seamlessly. They did a great job designing that game.
