10 Open World Video Games Set In Historical Eras

L.A. Noire 

Available on: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Steam, Xbox One

Rockstar, a developer that can easily be seen as a master of open-world games, has released several sandbox games set in various historical eras. One of them is L.A. Noire, a detective game that takes place in the scandalous era of 1940s Los Angeles.

Players take control of Cole Phelps, a WWII veteran who joined the police force, as he climbs the career ladder from beat cop to renowned detective. The game is reminiscent of all the classic noire stories and pulp fiction of the past, with players interrogating witnesses and investigating crime scenes across the colorful landscape of Los Angeles.

Players fight criminals using tommy guns, Hollywood style gossip can be indulged in, and you can even drive along the old Hollywoodland sign. And let's face it: everyone wants to do that. One downloadable mission even has Cole Phelps solving the Black Dahlia murder. Los Angeles has never looked as gritty as it was in the old days in L.A. Noire.
