How Do I Get My Sister to Play Heavy Rain?

Danielle D of VideoGameOlogists.com discusses the possible fears gamers might have when approaching a game like Heavy Rain. (Heavy Rain , PS3)

The best way I've found to get someone into gaming is simply to play the game in front of them. I've had a lot of moments in my life where a girlfriend or a younger sibling would get hooked into a game simply by watching me play.

It's discussed in the article why that approach didn't work. The ideas of morality and death seemed to be really off putting.

That happened to me with some university friends. They would just sit their and watch me play Uncharted 2. It was a little uncomfortable and I asked if they wanted to play but they said it was like watching a movie.
