Look, we loved L.A. Noire. If you don’t believe us, you can read our L.A. Noire review where we showered it with praise. But the game wasn’t perfect. L.A. Noire still had its fair share of quirks — clunky controls, rigid evidence inspecting and a “Doubt” interrogation system that sometimes provided comical out-of-left-field shouting matches.

We’re not alone with our criticism. The fine folks at Funny or Die have also picked up on these L.A. Noire oddities, choosing to film a short to call them out.

Listen, L.A. Noire, we love you. That’s why we feel we can poke fun at you. We don’t mean any harm, baby. We still love you the way you are — imperfect, yet groundbreaking.
