Ohh tough one. I'd say L.A. Noir by a hair. Only because they they had like 20 years to perfect the story.

Both stories did a good job of showing modernization and corrupt power brokers. However I think L.A. Noir did a better job of wrapping things up in the end. Even though both main characters...well you know.

Did LA noire even have a storyline? To me it just felt like the cases were stories on their own and there was no over-arcing plot

I could say things like the freeway plans and the flame-thrower guy and all the intertwining web of characters that runs from WW2 to the current events of L.A. Noir, but I don't want to give anything away for those that havn't played it.

Of course I played both. I think the plot of RDR is just more melancholic than the plot of L.A. Noire. The ends, well, they're quite the same but L.A. Noire seemed a little bit more interesting to me, the last four, five missions of L.A. Noire were fantastic.

Oh, LA Noire by a a mile. The last 7-8 missions of LA Noire were better than John Marston's "Ok, I'll do what you want and you get me what I want" storyline. It was just so complex with the Suburban Development Fund and how deep everything went. It wasn't a simple "I'm gonna do anything to rescue my family" storyline, which quite honestly is pretty cliché if you ask me.

LA Noire. RDR kinda sucked. The map was so big and boring and for some reason the story didn't captivate me at all.


LA Noire had me hooked.

Much of the over-arching plot developed in the background through the newspaper segments and flashbacks. It's not until things come to a head that they become relevant to the main story cases, and the storylines converge.

Abstained from voting since I never played RDR.

In term of story, RDR takes the cake. 

LA Noire is an awesome game, but there is no depth and character development.


Also, in both games the story ends unexpectedly, but look how RDR handled it and how LA Noire did it.

Oh my, RDR had the best story of any Rockstar game hands down. IIRC, it was also the first game where

which made it even better!

Red Dead by a mile, LA Noire's story is worse if only for the monotony that goes along with it for the majority of the narrative's length. Red Dead was never boring, every character was stand-out, important and brilliantly voiced, LA Noire was more of an experiment gone wrong than anything else, and despite its obvious potential it was ruined because it tried to be something that it wasn't. A typical game with elements of puzzle solving.


Also Red Dead's ending is perhaps the best ending in gaming, it is THAT good. LA Noire's ending just left me with a bad taste in my mouth for rather obvious reasons, and a story without a satisfying conclusion isn't a very good story at all.

I've just played RDR in free roam (I think it was the undead DLC) so I can't choose, but L.A. Noire, to me, felt repetitive. In fact, I didn't finish it. I left it, first, in the homicide division and then in narcotics...

About Red Dead's ending. For me, it felt absolutely rushed. It lacked the amount of emotions it needed. The action went too fast from then and there wasn't any nice epilogue regarding his family. Overally, Redemption's storyline was good, but its ending was far from great.


MGS2 had the best ending in the gaming. :cool:
