Well, my first post here, so hello Story Games!
On topic now, my group has only recently tried non-D&D roleplaying games(after playing D&D all through high school) and one of my friends has shown interest in playing a game that channels the film-noir genre. I'm especially eager to fill this request because this is a player who has tended to not be as excited about the games, so I want to be able to give a good game to up his overall enthusiasm(also I think it would be cool). Now, I have no experience with the film-noir genre. I'm researching it so I can make the game, uh, authentic is the word I'm looking for I guess. Like I mentioned, I'm also new to the non-D&D thing, so I don't really know any games that would model it well.
What games would you suggest to model the film-noir genre, and are there any tricks that you use to heighten that film-noir feeling(mechanical tricks or otherwise)?
