Team Bondi founder Brendan McNamara has said that L.A. Noire has proven to be "very appealing to women", mainly - he thinks - due to them being "pretty good at reading whether people are lying or not".
wonder why men suck at reading whether women are lying or not.
I'm sure there are lots of girl gamers out there who are going to be picking this up..
My GF doesnt play games (well other than angry birds & katamari damacy) but she loves Law and order. When she saw me playing this game and conducting interviews, she actually said "this is a game i can watch, i might even play it" Something about LA noire does indeed appeal to women, my GF didnt even like Heavy Rain
LOL My GF said the exact same thing.
Mine loved Heavy Rain. She loves this. Only annoying part is now I gotta wait around for her so I can play it... I guess it;'s ok though. I get to go around and explore and stuff like that. Get 5 stars on cases that are already done and stuff.
Good game. The facial reading during interviews was really easy though. Basically if the perp isn't looking you dead in the eyes they are generally lying to you. The only moderatly hard interview was on that Golden Butterfly mission where you have to interview that one girls father. He was a tad hard to read.
Later in the game you start dealing with the hard criminals that are really good at covering things up. Unless you have the evidence to accuse them, you cant "doubt" them or they will BS their way out of it. Plus they stare your character in the eyes, so you have to watch their movements. Touching their face, adjusting themselves, moving after being still etc... Plus there are a couple that are just nervous and break eye contact simply because of that.
this games awesome anyone can play it.. i hope they make a sequel called "noire york".
Yeah because thats what we need, another game set in New York city, are you freakin' kidding me!?
I would like a Paris Noire
Or maybe its becuse women gets turned on by the whole "LAPD DROP THE WEAPON!"
Don't women get brutally murdered in this game?
why would that turn women away from playing? Women want justice just as much as you do.
I haven't played it yet, but i would venture to say a few men get murdered as well
There's murder on both sides of the game.
and I assume you know this 1000 women.
I don't think I can agree with the dude who made the statement. Those women who like hardocre games will like it anyway no different to how men would. However, if he is talking about the female gamers who do not usually buy games, I think although they love the interview sections of the game, they wont be very much enjoying the driving and shooting sections of the game. A lot of women I know who have bought Heavy Rain and enjoyed it said they enjoyed it for its gameplay, how it was not traditional and easy to get into. However, on another note, I do think women will enjoy wathcing this game being played almost as much as they enjoyed watching Uncharted 2 being played due to the story and how certain gameplay sections immerse you deep into the story.
once they get to the fourth bloodied, bruised and naked female corpse sprawled out on a crime scene. Starting to feel really queasy inspecting those dead bodies now, even if it is just a video game.
I'm in a course that talks about this sort of thing. Women are better communicators as well as listeners. They are also better reading body language and potentially have a better attention span than men. That's right, my male Interpersonal Communications class teacher told me that.
I'm looking forward to the point in gaming evolution where people won't feel the need to say stuff like this ya know? My girlfriend is an Xbot and I'm a PS3 user. She's just about as into it as I am. Eventually it won't be newsworthy that "women like OUR game". Just sayin.
