Heavy Rain 'not written for tabloids or censorship'

David Cage, the creative mind behind Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain, insists he didn't write the PS3-exclusive thriller with tabloids or censorship in mind.

Speaking with the Official PlayStation Magazine UK, Cage said: "When you write something or you develop a project like Heavy Rain, you don't write for tabloids. You don't wonder what censorship will think of it, because otherwise you'd never do anything." (Heavy Rain , PS3)

to be honest
I don't think it would have hurt him to go a little further with the sex scenes, there is a lot of talk and occasionaly fox/tabloid hysteria about sex in games, but in reality it is never explicit or anything above what in a film would be a 12 rating. It's not that important, have pre ordered this one, but you know, I hope I live long enough to see this medium mature further in this respect.

Seriously man. Nobody wants to see a picture of abs you Googled and used as your icon.

On Topic: I think that people who fuss over sex in videogames are stupid. It's easier for kids to access latenight porn on HBO than to load up a videogame and play until they get to the 5 second sex scene. If I remember it correctly M stands for Mature, so if you aren't mature enough to understand that sex is a natural thing then you shouldn't even be allowed to play the game. Some people need to just grow the f*ck up and accept that gaming isn't just for the kiddies anymore.

Your making many fatty gamers jealous. But who are you trying to impress? It's a proven fact that are no girlz on the internetz.

Anyways, yes, I think Cage should have the freedom to do what he wants but ironically enough, Cage is somewhat in a Cage. If I'm not mistaken it was Sony themselves who felt the game went too far which is also ironic because Sony usually allows total freedom for their developers.

My God those abs are tight.

Do they mean 3D characters have more sexual appeal or why the high rating on games like this?

"My God those abs are tight"

God, What's wrong with you? j/k

@Lykon

It would be cool but at the same time we probably have the same problem as usual with the whole "Video Games = BAD + Sex = Video Games Even Worse", well at least in the Land of Freedom aka America...

How Ironic lol

Fcuk the tabloids.

All they produce is low grade garbage "journalism" 99% of the time anyway, especially here in the UK. The media over here dominates everything and love to jump on the "controversial game" type headlines, wouldn't suprise me if this picks up and bit of controversial press.

@Lykon: Seriously dude, change the avatar. You wouldn't walk around E3 or TGS with your shirt off talking games with people would you?

Cool, hopefully it works out and proves that truly mature games can exist and do very well.

As for that nine minute video.. It was cool and all, but I have to say the face on the guy was completely retarded looking. Seriously, did they take a child with down-syndrome to use as a baseline? Cool visuals are great, but don't drop the ball in areas where fine details count the most. At the mirror the overly-elongated lips and cheeks are way over done. It's like the bottom half of his head is fat, while the rest is normal. Or, they had downs in mind.
