G4 Shows LAPD Detective Playing LA Noire
Now this is one interesting piece of journalism. G4 recently had former LAPD Detective Skip Bauchman sit down and play the critically acclaimed LA Noire, the detective game developed by Team Bondi and published by Rockstar that puts you in the role of a 1940’s gumshoe. In the video below, Bauchman goes through a mission and shows the accuracies and inaccuracies of the gameplay, and finds the game to be surprisingly accurate, although of course not as detailed as actual police work. He is also comparing it to his own experience for the past thirty years or so on the force, which for the most part, did involve DNA evidence and a more professional level of crime scene breakdown. Still, it’s really fascinating to see an actual LAPD detective go through point by point, and it really sold me on the experience. You can take a look at the video below.
