The only game so far besides indigo prophecy that reaches this deep into emotion will be Final Fantasy 7 and when compared to Heavy Rain, Sony has a major blockbuster on it's hands that everyone should be on the edge of their seats about.
gameplay starts at 7min mark, its a good long chunk of it to, didn't see the whole thing but i think its bout 6-8 min of gameplay. The graphics look insane for this game, can;t wait for it to release next year
i wanted to shake the controller and im not playing oh my god... preorder during my lunch break at work tomorrow... confirmed edit:off screen graphics win... looks better than most games offscreen... and ffvii was emotional ... especially when you take into the effect you read everything and there was no in game voice acting
that was the most amazing scene ive ever seen in a video game but your wrong for emotion this SURPASSES any game period,omg i had goose pimples,if the whole game is like that this could be the best game ever made simple. usually i hate your flamebait titles but im giving you props on that video ....WOW WOW WOW well done
1st HHG i watched.
I'll hold my judgment until I've actually played the game, but by the looks of it Heavy Rain is shaping up to be phenomenal.
This game is going to be HUGE....
Thanks for the footage, HipHopGamer, that was really incredible. Those graphics are nuts!
I hope not. FF7 really wasn't emotional or intense compared to MGS back in the days. I hope Heavy Rain SURPASSES every other game ever made in terms of emotion and intensity. Edit: Why doesn't the video work for me?
yeah, vid ain't working for me either.
wait what that is a bad thing to say it makes heavy rain sound bad FF7 wasn't really emotional at all intensity well i dunno about that
Listen when you play this game you will be another person for the moment that's how much it sucks you in Heavy Rain is the real future of gaming you have to have this game
idk if it was emotional but thats because i just played the game wen it came out on psn. Only part i saw that really could have been emotional was that sephorioth and aris (sorry if i spelt them wrong) in that one cave area, Heavy rain looks like it will have allot of emotion to it
your video has some compression issues, you should use squared pixels dude and no fields. The game looks amazing it's my most anticipated tittle of all time, last one was littlebigplanet.
HHG, learn punctuation.
If you played FF7 during the PS1 era it was emotional, but if your someone who played it later then it would not have felt the same. The game made you care deeply for the characters and when some of the bad stuff goes down it almost made me cry.
i did play it on the ps1 back when it came out i wasn't moved at all it wasn't emotional at all just the blocky characters no voice acting text only i dunno i personally just wouldn't find that emotional
@HHG how the hell did u get heavy rain is a demo coming?
This is a load of crap because we all know hiphopgamer lacks the intelligence to play a RPG. The guy is incapable of reading.
Really, N4G, this guy's comment racks up 15 agrees? That hateful bull crap comment gets 15 agrees? That's pathetic. And there's no need for such insulting, personal attack comments here, especially outside the Open Zone.
Damn...That means more than likely this game will be like Demon's Souls and consume me for weeks...perhaps even months.
So I won't feel any emotion at all? FF7 didn't make me feel anything. :/ It's just tedious.
It's because Aeris, Tifa, nor Yuffie ever had their own shower scene in FFVII.
Is it me or is this game is starting to ride on the hype train ? From what I've heard this is going to be a dry unique game that focuses more on story and connecting with the player emotionally that's why is a mature game. From the beginning I saw potential in this game now seeing it every makes me want to get it even more hopefully the US version won't get censor because it will take part of the unique story telling away !!! 010 here I come !!!! =D
No wonder the stupid tittle... FFVII wasn't all that emotional... Maybe the death of Aerith but, I think FFX beats FFVII on that department. And what about MGS4? Didn't that game made you cry? Not even a single tear? Man you have no heart!
Metal Gear was great i love that game very emotional but FF7 allowing you to change your name, and play that long adventure doing so many different things, the side quest, I mean the game was huge, and a major break through for the RPG genre in the videogame industry. That's another reason why Fans demand a remake. but like I said it's all opinion based but after seeing the heavy rain footage i supplied for ya'll this game is gonna be huge
I think you should have said FFVII: crisis core it more beater than any final fantasy game http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Only two more months, I loved how that one guy was like What!?!?, because you had Heavy rain. Ive read all the previews of the game and this is the best one yet.
I'm WOW'D by graphics.
Hey HiphopGamer, I don't know whether or not you were using a camera to record, however you can buy dazzle for 52.99 at bestbuy. It's a much better way of recording footage. Good video though, this is a quality article/video, and a good way to measure what you should strive for.
Itll be emotion and great, thats for sure.
Most anticipated title EVER for me! I mean EVER!
Games with as much emotion as Heavy Rain: - - - -
Thanks HipHopGamer for the footage. I appreciate it. I too am looking forward to Heavy Rain.
Hip Hop Gamer is the William Hung of the gaming journalism industry. I seriously doubt he has the intelligence to make it past the first hour of a JRPG, let alone a Final Fantasy game.
I remember everyone waiting for this to come out on the PSN talking about how it was the most emotional game they'd ever played. Now that Hiphopgamer said something about it it's boring and tedious? Way to stick to your guns guys...
I don't think I ever said FF7 wasn't boring and tedious. I've repeatedly said FF Tactics was superior though.
if you want to compare emotion ... you should have said any MGS game.
The reason why I didn't say MGS because even though Hideo Kojima is perfect and he brings across the music and moments so well, playing FF7 back when it was first released how you can change your name and your other friends names gave it more of a personal experience, when people spoke to you they called you your actual name well in text at least. Also with all the side quest and other things that you can do made you have the option of following your own path instead of the linear experience. That's just my opinion and also I remember the feeling of playing FF7, Of course MGS 4 is a better game but think about MGS on playstation 1 in comparison to FF7 on psone. When you look at it like that there's a difference. Heavy Rain man I mean your actually playing Real Life because of the way the game was designed. I mean did you know that some of the events that's going on in this game actually happened to David Cage the writer and director of Heavy Rain. Oh god man wait until you play this and like I said the choices, you make, Death everything about this game is in a league of it's own
For the record MGS1>FF7 in emotion and story. If you dont agree you just didn't understand the story while takes alot to do.
It's all opinions... I agree that MGS1 was great, but we all have different opinions on games
I find it a bit insulting that Heavy Rain is being compared to MGS and FF... That is equal to CSI being compared to star wars and lord of the rings.
It's even more insulting to compare Metal Gear and Final Fantasy to Star Wars and Lord of the Rings
I'm just using them as examples of what a collosal leap it is between epic franchises and detective stories...
Meh i think Titanic is a better movie in terms of Emotion n all
You have not played Heavy Rain. You wont get to play it either, unless you have a PS3.
I don't see why people keep on hating on HHG, hes making good articles now and noone says anything? guess its cause of the first impression he gave, but now hes doing articles that are worth watching
My god, this game is going to own. For those that dont want to spoil anything, let me suffer you more by saying this game looks fvcking incredible. Talk about intense.
chk out the trailer at gametrailers.. which shows a part of gameplay of hassan shop in 5 different scenarios...and pls dont watch it..or u will loose 60 bucks !!! the experience is awesome..it redefines the concept of games.. !!! http://www.gametrailers.com...
The fight scene WTF, time to pre-order.
Well, duh. Heavy Rain won't have a hard time surpassing it by lightyears. It's built with strong focus on these two elements. It's kinda like saying Mass Effect equals Pacman's emotions and intensity. Not saying Pacman isn't emotional, but Mass Effects obviously wins that category.
i watch a video of HHG. i just cant believe this oh well ,but hey thanks for the footage. i might get this game i was gonna pass on this game though. but now im total in to it. °_°
sorry but no.. ff7 is another level of emotion imo.
Looks great, i cant wait for this now. Thanks HHG, I like your show, and im not even into rap/ hiphop. So its gotta be good. Keep em coming.
that was hot! Good looking out HHG on tha preview...appreciate it as alwayz!
this game look amaaaazing rarely do i feel this sense of realism and hhg,keep doing it,thanks for the show,great preview and great video indeed
Great video, terrible commentary.
but they are going to HAVE TO NAIL the voice acting in order to succeed at what they are trying to convey. I hope the talent pool is deep, real deep.
the detail and graphics are insane, this was always a day one so this is just icing right now
I never thought i'd see HHG cry. Ace.
This looks real good. Wasnt excited before but man this looks intense, especially that fight scene. Throughout the fight i was jus hoping he wouldnt miss a button! And the graphics look crazy, no doubts that PS3 is more powerful than 360. Great show HipHopGamer, keep up the good work. & Why are people bashing on HHG? If you dont like his style then get lost.
i like what I saw except for the lack of emotion in their faces, through out the clip even the fight scene everyone looked bored. small gripe. hey and to those insulting hiphopgamer, you know i dont like his stuff, but we can be respectful and critical at the same time.
I have been pleading that very same sentiment since seeing his first show. Everybody has to start from somewhere...right? Maybe if we gave constructive criticism instead of hate...the show might improve and be great. I know that might sound like a stretch, but I am all for trying to help anybody that is trying, with passion, to reach a dream.
I can't imagine what happens if you missed a few of the QTE's, this STORY COULD LITERALLY GO ANYWHERE. DAMN IT!!!!!!! -End Statement

game looks awesome can't wait to play it
Finaly Fantasy 7 wasn't that emotional or intense. It was pretty, fun and the story was tolerable boarding on interesting.
