Noire, the research and action game from Rockstar Games, which was later released also on current-generation consoles thanks to a remastering. Fortunately, Video Games Deluxe, the company that took it upon itself to adapt the experience to virtual reality, has had better luck.

THE. Noire is a game set in the late 1940s. The protagonist, Cole Phelps, plays the role of the rookie detective, who must get his shoes smeared at crime scenes, interrogate witnesses and suspects, and shoot thugs when he has no choice. . In their day, the developers placed special emphasis on the facial expressions of the characters. The idea is that the player could guess if they were lying or telling the truth just by seeing the rictus on their faces. Of course, in practice, everything was more complicated.
L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, instead, adapts various cases from the original Team Bondi game to virtual reality.
