Film Noir in Halo ODST

Halo 3: ODST is a video game released in 2009 by Bungie LLC. As stated in many of their press releases and live panels it was heavily influenced by fillm noir. You are the Rookie, a new addition to a squad of soldiers. You are stranded in the city at night and must find out what happened to, and reunite with your squadmates by solving a mystery surrounding clues left behind by each. Throughout the game you see influences from German expressonism everywhere, the grimy, lonely atmosphere, the plot mystery, and even the music can be traced back to German Cinema.

Guy Noir, Private Eye

This is an excerpt from the NPR Radio show "A Prairie Home Companion." The show is set up like a radio show from back before there was television. Within this show they preform a classic radio serial called "Guy Noir, Private Eye" focusing on a detective in Minesota solving life's questions. Though it is not specifically film related, the influence of German Expresonism and film noir are indusputable. This shows that German Expresonism's influence has spread across the decades and to other platforms other than the silver screen.

L.A. NOIRE walkthrough Case 1 "UPON REFLECTION"

This is the first case presented to the player in the game. Take note of the narrative overlay, the man telling the story. This was a conmonality in Film Noir, as was the grungy, dark, crime-filled detective story.
