Sure, the first month of the year is still yet to be finished, so it’s still a bit too early for any “… Of The Year” superlatives to hold much weight… until you hear about the upcoming video game “L.A. Noire”.

The best way that I know to give you some insight into the game is to share two videos with you to help show you not only how awesome the storyline looks, but to also show you a second video which shows you the level of detail that went into this game.

Now here’s a look into the technology and efforts which went into building this game.

Not hard to understand why L.A. Noire is a prohibitive favorite for Game Of The Year, right?  They’d have to truly mess up the controls or give users very little gameplay (or a combination of both) to find themselves without the superlative 12 months from now.  With Rockstar as the game’s developer, I don’t see any reason why this would be any less than awesome.
