Rockstar Games has always said that they take complaints about work-place stress seriously. But they've always had a good chuckle about complaints that their New York headquarters is an all-seeing, all-scrutinizing "Eye of Sauron."
That's what they're referencing in the gag that closes L.A. Noire's title credits (as seen above). If you don't get it, here's the background:
The comment that compared Rockstar's chiefs—presumably the likes of Sam and Dan Houser—to the all-seeing tower-topping, malevolent magical eye in the Lord of The Rings was first made publicly in January 2010. It came from a disgruntled employee (or someone related to them) from Rockstar San Diego studio, a team that was then hard at work wrapping up 2010's eventual Kotaku game of the year, Red Dead Redemption.
