Developers' Most Anticipated Games of 2013

BioShock! GTA5! The Last of Us! Beyond! - Eurogamer
With 2012 already a smudged headline on yesterday's newspaper, it's time to get excited, all over again, for the next twelve months and the incredible games they are sure to bring. There are some amazing-looking games due out this year, including Grand Theft Auto 5, BioShock Infinite, Beyond, The Last of Us and more. And with the next-generation of consoles set to explode onto the scene, proper brand new games are surely not far behind. Hopefully. (PC, PS3, The Last Of Us, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I think Byeond: Two Souls would be disappointing . at david cage`s games, gameplay is so pointless and the story has too many great plot holes . just like heavy rain ...

when I play the game i'll tell you if it is disappointing or not. but I know it won't be because I played heavy rain and it is my first time to play a game with that type of gameplay and I loved everything in heavy rain.

I disagree. Beyond is an original concept for a game not only in story but in gameplay too. Whether or not you find the gameplay satisfying is your call, and yet to be found out by most of us, but I find this sort of gameplay thrilling in the way in which it keeps you tense in tense moments and even mundane tasks or slower paced plot pieces are pushed at you in an interesting way. It's what adventure games are about.

Plus, it's one thing to say that the gameplay is pointless, but then you get games like Call of Duty where it's all shooting and completely one-dimensional. Fun to some, but stale to me. Quantic Dream's approach is like a breath of fresh air in a sea of shooters trying to be the next best rather than forging their own identity. It's this sort of game that covers a wider gamut and keeps me interested from one moment to the next.
And the plot holes that existed in Heavy Rain were unfortunate, but with writing comes experience, and I'm sure that Cage's writing will have much improved for Beyond, at least one can hope.

From the article & profoundly put, might I add:

Sheldon Pacotti was the principle writer for the original Deus Ex series, and creator of Cell: Emergence
"I'm a hopeless Quantic Dream fanboy, so I'm most looking forward to Beyond. I appreciate the courage with which the studio has tried new game mechanics for helping players inhabit a story, as well as their focus on character-based storytelling. What cripples most games as storytelling vehicles is that they are one-scene movies: all gunfight or all car chase. I think it's wonderful that games like Fahrenhiet and Heavy Rain let players do a multitude of normal human tasks, like lifting weights or searching for change in your pocket.

"If games are going to move players the way movies do, they will need to be able to hit a variety of emotional registers within a single experience. Regarding Beyond, I'm particularly interested in seeing a power curve tied directly to the player-character's emotional state. Isn't that the way it is in the movies? The hero finally delivers the decisive blow when he - and the audience - are at their angriest or most terrified."

You played the game? How do you know it has "too many plot holes"? This game is based on two characters, not four, like Heavy rain.

I know this is your opinion and I'm not saying you can't have one, but when you go and say you "think" and then continue with "the story has too main plot holes just like Heavy rain," before playing it, can be a little redundant(I don't know if I'm using the right word, brain fart). Maybe you should have worded it differently; maybe you meant to say, you think it will have pointless gameplay and have too many plot holes like Heavy Rain?

Then again, I guess if his previous games were one way, you can expect his next game to be the same way, right?

I enjoyed Heavy Rain, even with its plot holes. I played it and got all the endings and played the Taxidermist episode for Madison Paige. I really wish Sony would have let him continue with the DLC, but playing with the move is not that bad.

I can't wait for his next game/movie, whatever you want to call it. It's one of my most anticipated Sony executives.

Heavy Rain is one of the best games of this generation. I don't think you'll have anything to worry about with Beyond: Two Souls

Seems like the list of games ill avoid.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   941d ago
Really?
Aside from saving some money, you're going to be missing out big time.
Ezz2013  +   941d ago
no one cares if you avoid it or not

My wish for this game,

Is that it helps elevate Video Games to a viable medium in which, complex Emotional Content can be explored.

I hope that it finally gets representation in ALL of the genres that Books and Films have. Not just Action, Fantasy, and Sci-Fi but Interactive-Documentaries, History, Love-stories, Tutorials... ect.
