Quantic Dream Founder David Cage praised Sony for doing a remarkable job showing that single player gaming isn't dead. He also said that Sony never imposed any decision on the studio.
Yeah, David Cage definitely has no reason to complain about Sony -- they've always been extraordinarily good to the guy.
Sony PlayStation and Quantic Dream share the same grand vision for the interactive entertainment industry. They are both going for the bigger picture of making video games the biggest entertainment industry in yhe world. Bigger than Hollywood and music industry, bigger than the porn or gambling industry.
They can't beat porn lol... none can.
There too many horny bastards out there! You can't beat them.
They've been supportive with you, even though the 2nd game was baaad... But the 1st one was great, so... And yeah, that's the thing with taking your chances with devs, you never know
You mean Beyond? I liked it more than Heavy Rain to be honest.
Yeah beyond... Hell, if you like it you like it... nobody can argue that.
You liked beyond more than heavy rain? Everyone's entitled to their opinion I suppose but I don't see whatever it is you saw in the game
So did i
I loved both but I think I’m going to have to agree woh you I liked beyond more especially the remaster where you could play in chronological order
Heavy rains twist was kinda dirty... so i didnt appreciate that. I liked the star power of beyond...still havent finished it as the genre isnt a priority.
I can't call his games bad, they're POLARIZING. It may sound like a copout, but the fact is that his games, similar to Telltale games, are more about the cinematic and emotional experience rather than any actual gameplay, and I do not fault anyone for not liking them. That being said, when his games deliver, they deliver HARD. To this day, few moments in gaming have left me as shellshocked as the reveal that Scott Shelby was the Origami Killer in heavy Rain. I felt manipulated and dirty. The closest feeling to that was the reveal that James Sunderland killed his wife in Silent Hill 2, and that game didn't make you participate in the deception to the level Heavy Rain does.
Polarizing, cinematic, shellshocked, but specially copout
Well, Quantic Dream games are fully fledge game than telltale episodic. Like them or not, Quantic Dream games are still game. Definition of Gaming is everything.
But the thing is that Sony let the devs to do whatever they think, not forcing them to follow.
There first game was actually Nomad soul.
Single player doesn’t need to be shown any proof that it’s still viable. It was never threatened to begin with
Right? People just like writing/reading fluff pieces about how games as a service and multiplayer games are taking over the industry lol
The statement is nonetheless true. The more love sp games get, the better.
I'm glad Sony loves diversity in their library of games but at the same time I'm glad they didn't aquire David Cage's studio, just my opinion but I rather they aquire someone like insomniac because I love how diverse that studio is even though they love being an independent studio.
You need your head checked. Its too diverse.
Is that a bad thing ?
Insomniac would never sell though.
Creative freedom. Sony has always been good with that
I prefer single player games
I'm genuinely grateful for the friends I've made online with MP games. But at the end of the day, I'll always prefer SP games. On the topic of the article, it's wonderful that a company such as Quantic Dream have been given the maximum "freedom" & support from Sony to make the games they want to make. Quantic Dream have proven themselves, with both HR & Beyond. Sony trusts the team at QD & in return, the team wants to create something unique & great. Mutual Respect! I believe Detroit will be their best work to date.
High risk = High Reward
Agree, I love the challenge.
The gaming market would not have survived without Sony. It'd have already become a smartphone's market like. MT, subscriptions, GaaS, multiplayer online everywhere and unfinished releases. 🤔 I think there are some companies trying to impose this on us right now. But i can't remember their names. 😅
well said, anyone saying single player is dead is an idiot.
Single Player games are the Past, Present, and Future of the gaming industry.
Well said !
So true. And even though Sony is heavily focused on single-player gaming, which I love, when they do include multi-player components in their games, they're usually a ton of fun and wuite unique. I am very much looking forward to Detroit as well. I loved Heavy Rain and enjoyed Beyond.
While its great that Sony is showing the world that SP gaming is alive and well I still very much miss the Sony of the PS3 era wherw they took much more risks involving online play experiences.
The games I played most online last gen were all PlayStation exclusives. Motorstorm, Uncharted, The Last of Us, God of War Ascension, etc.
Yep and the main reason I'm a PlayStation fan! I go out of my way to support those who embrace creativity and deliver amazing SP experiences!
How many time do we need this to be said? We get it.
Just to make sure publishers like EA need a lesson for trying delude people with their Gaas BS. If EA keep their stubborn attitude, people going to keep criticizing them until EA lose their mind and EA will be deranged one by one.
The only people talking about how Single-Player gaming is dying are those who have a vested interest in Multiplayer games and Games as a Service. If anything, this generation and especially the Playstation has shown that Single-Player games are not only alive but thriving. Why even ask David Cage about the success of other multiplayer games? His studio makes games like Heavy Rain and Beyond which are as far as possible from Fortnite and PubG. I am looking forward to this game.
I cant wait to see what Kojima has cooking.. Its an incredible time to be a gamer.. This gen will go down as one of the best for sure.. Slow start with a lot of ports but really came into its own.. JRPGs had a resurgence as well.. Something severely lacking last gen.. I dont understand why western developed games flooded the market.. Is it because MS had the market share lead? Idk but i dont want to see that happen again if we lose variety because of it
Sony is putting out the best games.. Big budget current gen titles with the same TLC nintendo gives their own 1st party.. Its refreshing to see them actually start caring about their 1st party studios.. Back in the PS1/PS2 era, sony didnt really care that much.. 2nd & 3rd party was so overwhelming compared to the competition that they didnt need to worry about it. Competiton is good because MS threatened their rule & thats when we started seeing a huge shift.. Sony always had great 3rd party support and thats all they needed at first.. Now that they have high quality 1st, 2nd, & 3rd, we're going to see some amazing titles.. Especially since the dev teams are being granted creative freedom to an extent.. They can rule the SP market with an iron fist and leave the MP for 3rd party if they wanted.. If getting and maintaining a PC is too much money/trouble, PS4 & switch is a dream combo.. If you have the means for a PC as well, then your golden.. These companies pushing GaaS may make the most money, but never have the most respect.. Companies may not care about respect but thats what makes fans trust to move onto future generations
