Heavy Rain Composer Normand Corbeil passes away at 56

Tanya Valdez of writes: Some sad news has streamed in and hit the video game community. Music has a huge impact on the ears that the medium nestles itself in. Video game music helps tell the story of the game it is composed for. Heavy Rain was known for being a title that danced on the emotion of the player and David Cage, as well as the team from Quantic Dream, executed this so well.

The story is too old to be commented.

Its really sad to hear. I loved the music from heavy rain!

Man, this is sad.

Without doubt one of my favourite soundtracks in gaming, even in films. It matched the game perfectly, it added so much to the atmosphere of the game.

Agreed. Music is half of the mood to any scene and Heavy Rain's music was spot on with the emotion of the story. Sad to hear it. He did a great job!

welcome to n4g, where common sense means stupidity at its finest

how dare you question the stealth trolls, most people who actually say what's on their mind or are neutral have 2-3 bubbles while some of the worst trolls have 5 plus

so its better to say the politically correct thing, even if that means its not what you think is right or wrong

That sucks. The music in this game was good.

And they want us to work until we are 70 or 80 now to get our retirement benefits. lol. Maybe that's their plan. Collect money from us for retirements we'll never get.
