L.A. Noire was set back in America in the 1940′s which is much different to today in america as the attitudes about different topics have dramatically changed. The game relates exactly to the life that people lived back in Americain the 1940′s as women were seen as less important to men at that time, this is portrayed in the way the game is made. You could link L.A. Noire to other texts due to the similiarities to other media types such as Grand Theft Auto, as they both share the crime genre and well as the detective side.

    Grand Theft Auto can also link to L.A. Noire through it’s negative portrayal and stereotyping of women, and I agree with you that men were seen as dominant and were far more in control than women at the time.
