Beyond is about opening doors & showing people games aren’t just about shooting, says Cage

Beyond: Two Souls director and writer David Cage has explained his aspirations for the PS3 title, and hopes that it will encourage people to see the medium a little bit differently.

The story is too old to be commented.

I love different games that's why this is at the top of my buy list. Well also I loved Heavy Rain so sad and beautiful game. ^~^ or maybe this face T-T

Its sad that the game had terrible writing and terrible acting. I liked it despite its many faults.

And yet it's censored in Europe...

Tell that to Americans who keep on supporting crappy franchises like Call of Duty

Because it's only America.
Can I now blame Europe for destroying the film industry by eating up things like Battleship and Resident Evil?

Not all Americans play FPS I play many types of games. I am currently playing The Puppeteer. And I recently beat Brothers A Tale Of Two Sons. You shouldn't generalize like that. I do know that many Americans do play COD, Just not all of them do.

I don,t like this guy... He seems to believe there are only two crowds of gamers : COD obsessed teenagers and artsy-pants hipsters.

I can name so many games that are not about shooting and killing stuff that this guy seems to have no knowledge of...

Like maybe Katamari Damacy, LittleBigPlanet, Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing, Professor Layton, Journey, Fl0w...

As for emotional content, what about Shadow of the Colossus, Virtues Last Reward, Ni No Kuni...

I mean yeah that game looks like it's well made, but this guy seriously needs to get over himself...

You should watch/read more interviews with him. He talks about the variety of games a lot. Ueda (Shadow of the Colossus/Ico) is one of his favorite developers and influences. He has talked at length about Shenmue, LittleBigPlanet, Journey, and Earthbound.

That's a good list of games. Now you need to add The Puppeteer , Brothers A Tale Of Two Sons , And Rain to your list. There are many types of games besides shooters.

I love how he thinks he is the only person doing this at the moment.
Show us the light, David. Please.

While it is great that you can name a few games that break the mold, that does not change the fact that the sales numbers show that gamers as a whole are not very aware of games without shooting someone, especially here in the US. Other than The Walking Dead (which actually included shooting, BTW), many gamers are not informed about these games. Blame it on short attention spans, violent tendencies, or just terrible marketing. They are all factors in the reality that your typical gamer plays CoD, GTA, or sports titles.

Honestly, I truly feel he is just a very pretentious person who feels he is spear-heading the idea of art and narrative in an industry already dripping with it, if you actually look for it.
It's the same way that people claim there are too many modern-military shooters when, really, there's the couple of industry staples, and then the random release every once in a while.
There is a market out there for every gamer. Complaining that one might be more popular than the other is pointless. It's not hard to find a quality non-shooter release at any time. Just go on Steam and throw a rock.
Besides, and let's be honest here. If he was worried about the industry moving further from story in games, wanting a wider audience for what he wants to create, he should be just as vocally against tying his experiences to one platform as he is about calling out the industry on being too closed off from new experiences.
Just my two cents.
