They have t o be the most negative commenter I've ever read. They make happyface look... Happy.

I personally can't wait to get my hands on this "interactive movie".

Hanif-8762988d ago (Edited 2988d ago )

Its definitely not a video game anymore because video games aren't supposed to look so realistic and its also too interactive because you can interact with almost everything you see which is just so freaking unbelievable :)

TheDeadMetalhead2988d ago


Yeah, not clicking.

redsquad2988d ago (Edited 2988d ago )

They clearly didn't read the article, or merely interpreted it in a way that would bolster the blinkered and wildly inaccurate preconceptions they formed about HEAVY RAIN months before.

Either way, they obviously missed every point that Cage made.

TheDeadMetalhead2988d ago (Edited 2988d ago )

So, how long until the 360 fanboys swarm this article? I give it an hour.

deadreckoning6662988d ago (Edited 2988d ago )

I can't wait for this game. It definetly isn't making same mistake MGS4 did of having a complicated overdone story that no one, not even probably Kojima could fully understand. This game has TWENTY different endings! February can't come soon enough!!!

Sunny_D2988d ago

No one? NO ONE? Well, tell that to every MGS fan who has bought every MGS game since release. I even have the old MG games. Now tell me, do you want me to type you an essay of what MGS is all about? WELL, DO YA? Lol.

Saaking2988d ago

Perhaps you haven't played all the MGS games? Maybe that's why you didn't understand the story, becuase I understood everything. It's not that complicated.

until a few days ago when, for some reason, I just got excited. It's funny because it's not like I learned anything new about the game, but I just got excited with it.

Heavy Rain is indeed not a game and considering it's made up of QTE, I do consider it to be very unique. I am going to take the leap of faith and compare this game with masterpieces like Shadow of the Colossus. I really do think that this game needs to be approached non-traditionally and I'm going to quickly label those who try to act as if Heavy Rain is a traditional game as ignorant.

I'm glad that the game is being portrayed as "not a game" and as something along the lines of a unique interactive thriller. I just hope people don't bash the nature of the game like people bash Demon's Souls for being hard. Hopefully people understand the concept of Heavy Rain and judge the game accordingly.

Myst2988d ago

I agree it doesn't seem to fit into any genre at least none that come to mind, maybe it would be best labeled as an interactive story book, though utilizing a controller. I don't know, but even as a story it wouldn't make to much sense because of the multiple branching paths.

The only thing I'm sure of is that I want the game :).

@cmrbe: Agreed

Saaking2988d ago

Yea man, that happens to me some times. I get excited over a game I didn't really look forward to. haha, weird. Anyways, yea I'm really looking forward to Heavy Rain. The devs are giving it all they've got, so it's gonna be great.

vudu2987d ago

I wasn't sold until I saw an extended play video...

Now, holy FFFF! I want to play this game NOW!!

Its coz its a Sony ONLY game, if it was a multiplat game or a PC exclusive itll b a totally different story

Cage hasnt gotta explain himself 2-any-1 and certainly not 2-me i know wot 2 expect from Heavy Rain, i prayed 4 Fahrenheit 2 and got Heavy Rain instead

Roll on February woop woop woop

redsquad2988d ago

I have to agree with him. If someone asked me to quantify Heavy Rain, explain the concept or categorise it, I don't think I could do it in 'videogame terms'.

ToastyMcNibbles2988d ago

i like how the 360 fanboys actually think that by calling this game a movie is somehow making fun of the game lol calling this game a movie is the best compliment a game can get so come on with the "movie" comments...anyways cannot wait for this game i absolutely loved indigo prophecy

deadreckoning6662988d ago (Edited 2988d ago )

That's funny. I haven't heard any 360 fanboys make fun of this yet. Give me a link to an article when 360 fanboys made fun of Heavy Rain. I wanna know who ta watch out for :)

@Toast- LOL, funny stuff.

@ Dead

Seriously, are you the F-ing Thought Police? You're in here and the Gamer Zone teliing people what to comment and how to comment. Just let people say whatever, yes including the delerious Xbox fanboys, and let the MODS decidewhat stays and what goes. . it's THEIR site.

Why Dat2988d ago

You should see how the IGN boards reacted to the GT5 demo. They are all like "omg.. the game is the SUX... too realistic, blah blah blah".

Whatever.. Xbots keep saying realistic=stupid, then not realistic enough=stupid. Such lametards.
