1. LA Noire
Set in a neo-noir 1947 Los Angeles, you play as Cole Phelps - an LAPD Police Office and Detective. As your career advances through various different detective desks (Arson, Homicide, Traffic etc) a fast-paced story evolves with you in the centre of it.
Ultimately, LA Noire's 8 years of development cost development group Team Bondi their jobs. But what we as gamers got on the shelves was a masterpiece of interactive cinema.
