IncGamers Column: Why I'm Backing Heavy Rain

IncGamers' Andy Alderson explains why Quantic Dream's story-driven adventure will divide gamers.

From the column:

"I've been playing Heavy Rain for the last couple of weeks and, I can't deny, it's had an effect on me.

Or, more specifically, thinking about how it's going to be received."

This does look pretty amazing

It still sounds like a graphic novel of types..

Fyzzu3167d ago

A graphic novel with branching paths and actual gameplay. I'm not sure why this would be a bad thing.

Seems like the fact that it's a story-driven game is attracting criticism from some. Personally, I think it's great to see a developer taking narrative seriously.

Heh, I doubt he meant anything negative. When has a graphical novel ever been bad? :)

People who dislike graphical novels usually use more derogatory terms like "glorified comic" or the like.

I've seen parts of this game, it looks totally jaw-dropping.

This is definitely a one of a kind game.
