Now there has always been that uncanny valley between real life and video games. What that means is that there never really has been a truly life like appearance of a character in a game that could relate to real life. There have been great graphics that is for sure but even then there is always that uncanny valley. L.A. Noire may not have the facial designs to overcome that valley but they are trying their best.
With their latest release of screenshots L.A. Noire has shown off a batch of different faces within the game. We see the different facial emotions that one wouldn’t normally expect within a game such as worry lines appearing on the forehead of a character or wrinkles appearing as they concentrate on something. These different subtle emotions will most likely bring the characters to life in L.A. Noire, and as long as everything else falls into place we may be seeing some of the best emotion exhibiting characters to date.
