Q&A: Heavy Rain Creator Thinks Games Need to Grow Up

The creator of Heavy Rain thinks videogames need to grow up.

In a fiery speech at the DICE Summit in Las Vegas last week, David Cage told an audience of game developers and industry executives that it has a “Peter Pan complex.” Big-budget videogames, he said, were being made for teens and kids, not adults. If games were going to be played by more grown-ups, they needed to tackle more mature themes, with mechanics that go beyond shooting and platform-jumping. If they didn’t, Cage said, they’d see more of their audience move away from consoles and onto smartphones and tablets.
