A Real Detective Plays L.A. Noire
At G4tv, we wanted to find how good a real detective can be when playing Rockstar Games' L.A. Noire, so we got Skip Bauchman, a real detective from the LAPD, and put him to the test. Find out how well this detective does.

    I say they should have this guy do all the walk throughs. I really enjoyed this.

    Really enjoyed this and it was quite informative. Overall, I would have to say that this video makes me more likely to play the game.

    On the other hand, I wonder what the video editors left out of the interview. I didn't get the sense that this was the total interview. Maybe this was representative of his opinions; maybe it wasn't. What did you guys cut out?

    Really cool video, I almost didn't watch it until you guys changed the name to "A Real Detective Plays L.A. Noire".

    Is it just me or are half the actors in this game from Mad Men? I saw Peggy, Kinsey, and I believe Jimmy Barrett in this video

    Awesome segment... now lets have a parody with a bounty hunter taking on red dead, metroid and others..Or not.

    Reminds me of an old article I read where they got a cabbie to play crazy taxi....only this was much better...

    Cop: You know the victim?
    In-game: You know the victim?
    Haven't gotten far yet, but now know this'll be gravy. :D

    I love this kind of journalism, gives normal people like me an insight into the do's and dont's of videogame photorealism. Combat Facts on GT TV, really good. A similar piece was done with Yakuza 3 being played by actual yakuza.

    Now, what's it going to take to get a Ghost in the Shell game that's similar to LA Noir.

    I love L.A. Noire a good bit already, so no need to sale me on it. But I enjoyed this video immensely, one of the best things I've seen on your site ever.
