Why does everyone call L.A Noire a linear game?

there are different outcomes, but it doesn't mess with the story


That's like the definition of a linear game.


Just like how the Walking Dead is a linear game then.


It is...

For some reason, I don't think you understand what makes a game linear.

Daggerfall is an example of a non-linear game. Being able to go anywhere at any given time despite level.

Sarcasm? The Walking Dead adventure games are 100% linear. You'll have different characters with you and hear different bits of dialogue, but you'll always progress through the story from A-->B-->C.

I think we have a lot of people confusing linear gameplay with linear plot.

People are always going to have their different definitions of what makes a game linear or non-linear. And they're always going to be wrong. All of them.

It's funny because R* doesn't know what to do with an open world and makes all their missions linear.

There is no better prime example of non-linearity than Darklands especially compared to something like a Rockstar game. That was about as wide open as possible and a great game too.
