Rock Star raises the bar with its Grand Theft Auto series, and Red Dead Redemption, defining a new era of expansive open-world adventure. With LA Noire, inspired by Raymond Chandler and LA Confidential, she has done it again. The title was the first game as an official selection at the Tribeca Film Festival will be honored. It even ripped a book of short stories - which never happened to Jet Set Willy.

"There is growing convergence of talent to a more interesting games creative medium, that a greater number and diversity of Hollywood talent will continue to require," said Dan Houser. "We work hard to the debate about whether games are art to be avoided, as it is, everybody wants to win too much time on their hands."
