It's wrong to call Heavy Rain a game, it isn't really. Yes it requires inputs from your fingers to your controller, but beyond that, what you're living is a cinematic experience like no other. David Cage and his team at Quantic Dream have created an emotional work of art that connects with the player on a level never before realised. It's hard to talk about Heavy Rain without really giving away any plot points or scenarios, but I will try to make this as free of spoilers as possible.
