''"I do have to mention, though, that both ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' and ''{{Smallville}}'' did a NoirEpisode. They did TheThemeParkVersion and were generally considered horrible. ''{{Moonlighting}}'''s noir episode, however, is considered especially good, with a cameo by Orson Welles himself."''

''"[[GrumpyOldMan Ah these kids and them new-fangled videogames]]," Bob [[GrumpyBear grumbled like a bear woken up three weeks too early.]] "Well if you want videogames, I'd suggest the VideoGame/MaxPayne series. Yeah, I know what made it sell was that BulletTime stuff, but it's seen as the best modern example of noir in the genre. Besides, any story that combines [[NorseMythology Ragnarok, Valkyries, and other such Norse lore]] with a solid noir pedigree and [[PrivateEyeMonologue metaphors]] that all go down smoother than a 12-year whiskey? Kudos to Remedy for bottling lightning."''

''"Yes; I'll admit, it's a parody of the Noir genre, but listening to this style on the radio can really show you a whole new dimension to your usual setup. And another buddy of mine is [[http://rogueking.com/life/calvin-hobbes-tracer-bullet Tracer Bullet]]. He's retired now, sad to say, but he used to appear in [[CalvinAndHobbes a newspaper comic drawn by a guy named Bill Watterson.]] You heard of him?"''

''"Besides the AntiHero and the FemmeFatale," Bob said, "there are plenty of other characters you can add. TheMafia's a nice choice. Sometimes there are two {{Femme Fatale}}s - there's the good one, who often comes around to the AntiHero's side, and TheVamp, who sometimes dies by the AntiHero's hands and sometimes gets away [[KarmaHoudini scott clean]]. You can also add TheIngenue to provide a nice contrast with the FemmeFatale. There's also the ConMan and the CorruptHick - oftentimes [[DirtyCop a sheriff or police chief.]] If you're doing it [[CityOfSpies in a particular setting]], [[ColdWar like Germany or Russia]], you can also include ThoseWackyNazis and DirtyCommunists."''

''He stopped in thought for a second before slapping his hand to his face. "I forgot!" he continued hurriedly "There was a CosmicHorrorStory Noir Game. Discworld Noir. One of those Point and Click ones." He stubbed out his cigarette into the dirty ashtray. "Came out pretty well, although you'd need to know the series to get the most out of it. Can't really forget one more, ''VideoGame/LANoire''."''

And then there's [[VideoGame/TheWolfAmongUs the Wolf Among Us]], which is great if you want an investigator whose done as much [[TheBigBadWolf bad]] as good. "''

''"Sure," Bob said. "Old noir films [[DoubleStandard tended to be a little bit sexist]], so try changing around some [[GenderAndSexualityTropes gender roles]]. Don't be afraid to make the AntiHero a woman. Or even a [[VeronicaMars young girl]]."''
