L.A. Noire receives film festival selection

L.A. Noire

L.A. Noire is set to come out in about a month-and-a-half and it’s shaping up to be a great game. Now it looks like the film industry is also recognizing the upcoming title.

In a press release from Rockstar Games, the company revealed that L.A. Noire is being honored as an official selection at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. No other video game has ever been recognized by the acclaimed event.

Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games, expressed his company’s appreciation and explained how this is a big step for the videogame industry.

"We’re thrilled that L.A. Noire is being recognized by the Tribeca Film Festival in this way," he said. "It’s a real honor, and another step forward for interactive entertainment."

An exclusive preview will also be shown at the Tribeca Talks series, showcasing a live screening of an in-game case, followed by a Q&A session detailing the relationship between film and video games.

Geoff Gilmore, who will be moderating the Q&A session, had high praises for Rockstar and Team Bondi’s upcoming project.

"What Rockstar and Team Bondi have accomplished with L.A. Noire is nothing less than groundbreaking," he said. "It’s an invention of a new realm of storytelling that is part cinema, part gaming, and a whole new realm of narrative expression, interactivity, and immersion. We are poised on the edge of a new frontier."

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
