Top 5 Games Hurt by “Innovation”.
It’s hard not to see what Rockstar was trying to do with LA Noire – wow the audience with awesome execution and an innovative movie-like approach to storytelling. This, however, meant that we got a beautifully-rendered city of Los Angeles with almost no incentive to explore and fully enjoy it.
It was nice to see a rockstar like Rockstar (pun intended) show appreciation for a cult franchise like Ace Attorney with the investigation segments, but Cole Phelps accusing a witness of commiting the whole crime when the player has doubts about something adding up, that’s a bit of a piss-off.
The worst thing is all it would taken to fix that would be adding a preview of what Cole would say for every particular dialogue option.
