You Can Skip The Action Bits In LA Noire

As if studying emotive patterns and facial tics wasn't ballsy enough, Rockstar is bucking further trends by allowing you to skip the action in LA Noire in favor of advancing the story. Basically, if you don't want to shoot folks in the face and would rather discover the next narrative beat, you can. "You can skip those action elements and still experience the bulk of the narrative," reveals Rob Nelson, art director at Rockstar.

It's not particularly surprising, seeing as how elusive the marketing has been over LA Noire's combat. We've seen glimpses, true, but the emphasis has been on the tech, the story and the investigative elements. Personally, I expect Rockstar know their combat system isn't up to scratch compared to competing third-person shooters, so allowing players to skip the action in favor of the story differentiates their title from others. LA Noire is out next month. We can't wait, frankly. [Game Informer]

If I remember correctly you could skip the missions on Red Dead Redemption after you'd failed them a few times. I guess this is an option for gamers who...don't want to play games?!
