10 Beloved Cult Classic Video Games That Desperately Deserve Sequels

2. L.A. Noire

Rockstar

This was inevitable wasn't it? Rockstar's amazing attempt at bringing the Noir film genre to life was an utter delight to play through. It showed an entirely new side to the gaming giants that made you rely on your intelligence instead of sheer firepower - a risky move but a big success.

L.A. Noire was the perfect blend of investigation and action as you led former US Marine Cole Phelps around Los Angeles in 1947. Every ounce of your grey matter would be tested during the interrogation sections; the game forced you to read the suspect and decide how best to approach them (intimidate never EVER works!).

Combining this mental thrashing with car chases, hand to hand combat, and tricky gunfights gave the player everything they could possibly want except for one key Rockstar trademark. The game wasn't open world as standard - you had to complete a lot of missions before you had access to the massive sandbox of LA - and a sequel could remedy this.
