David Cage's 'biggest concern' about Heavy Rain - Gamers who wouldn't try it

In a new feature interview, the director of the upcoming Beyond: Two Souls tells Gamasutra that his "challenge as a game designer" is getting those who ignored Heavy Rain to give his new game a chance.

"My biggest concern about Heavy Rain was not so much what people who played it thought, because the feedback has been consistently very positive about the game. It was much more about the people who didn't play Heavy Rain, what they thought of the game. Just the image they had of it," Cage tells Gamasutra. (Heavy Rain , PS3)

If you want an experience in a game that will be nothing like you have seen, HEAVY RAIN tells a story in such a way that really gets to you. It's an amazing experience and so fresh original. I think HR has been one of my most rewarding gaming experiences wince I started playing video games and what I love is my HR experience is different from all of my friends'. It's a piece of interactive art that is very personal to the individual gamer. Man, I want to replay it right now.

I agree with you!!! People need to get pass the simple gameplay and judge the game as a whole. There is more to a game than just gameplay. I mean look at journey or flower. The experience is just amazing and its remarkable on how well it sucks you into the story. It was a well thought out game and I have no regrets what so ever making that purchase.

I'll be trying after Black Friday more than likely.

Given that my old 60GB PS3 died on me last week for the third and "final" time and I'm waiting on a deal for a new 320GB Move bundle.

This console gen sucks.

I got it one the BF the year it came out. It was a fun game, but when I went for the Platinum I kind of got sick of playing it over and over again lol

I personally wouldn't get the move bundle. Move is pretty gay. Almost as gay as kinect. I got the move bundle cuz I got a sweet deal on it. Used it once and never touched it again.

The only thing I'm getting the Move for are lightgun games. HotD, Timecrisis and the like.

Really want the bundle for the HDD.

According to David Cage anyone that rented Heavy Rain was a thief who stole money out of his pocket, so maybe people didn't try the game because they didn't want to rent it and steal from him.

Oh and David Cage did say that about people who rented or got a second hand copy of Heavy Rain. Look it up before you hate on my post.

Would be nice if you can give us a link to an interview where he exactly says those words. I mean anyone that makes a product and doesn't get money out of it would say that.

Links or it didn't happen. Even then, that's dubious.

Just started replaying it today and even though i already know what happens i was so immersed in it that it was hard to put the controller down. IMO HR is trully one of the best experiences this generation had to offer and a breath of fresh air in a industry infested by shooters.

There's not much you can do about a closed mind. You'll wear yourself out trying.
