Is Heavy Rain Doing Video Games Proud? (Alternative Magazine Online)

AMO writes: "I was recently disappointed to realise that several media outlets/gamers are already finding fault with Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain on PS3 before it has even been released, mostly due to the parallels it draws with cinema. Of course, this is a result of the unbelievable hype surrounding the game. But rather than doing gaming a disservice, I actually think from what I have seen so far that it is doing video games rather proud…"

i really hope for heavy rain to be a big hit and change how ppl look at video games :)

This game should make Sony and QD proud of themselves. It looks amazing. We need innovation. Of course if you show this game to an FPS addicted teenager, he'd probably laugh his as* off and mock the game and 360 fanboys regardless of their age will always hate it but mature audience regardless which platform is their favorite (360 or PS3), they will support innovation and an attempt to take gaming to the next level which is exactly what Sony and QD are doing here.

VARIETY FTW!!!

I don't know, but I hope so, it's not a game for everyone.

I like many kinds of games.

Right..
On one hand people b!tch about NOT having innovation...
and when Innovation arrives, they start scolding it for not sticking to the core norms set by gamers everywhere.

Seems like people/media can't make up their mind..

Well i guess it must be easier in life to go on hating everything that comes your way..

I know it's not because they are animated because animated movies rack up the awards every year.

Thanks! I assume you mean this article:

http://www.destructoid.com/...

This was of course one of the things I read online that sparked me into writing my own opinion piece about Heavy Rain.

Don't worry those Destructoid "enthusiasts" seems to only think that games are those things where you press a button and a bullet comes out of a gun , i have yet to read a single article from that site with even a small bit of substance is just a waste :/

They don't remember adventure graphic games like The Longest Journey , Phantasmagoria, etc ... just do what i do and ignore everything that says Destructoid they only write nonsense to get hits.

And Heavy Rain seems to be a gaming masterpiece of moral feelings =)

The Longest Journey is a good example to use! I write for Adventure Classic Gaming (my earliest gaming memories are of classic adventure games tbh) so I can really get excited when I see a mash-up of old and new like Heavy Rain.
