'There are a couple of things that a game like Heavy Rain does to you.
Number 1: They've captured life surprising well. At first I found the arrows and button indications quite distracting. I felt that the beautiful graphics were let down by those big markings everywhere.
And then I started seeing them as I was waiting to catch the bus and realised that, actually, they're more natural than you think.
That's right, you know you've played games for too long when you start imagining that someone could actually use a PS3 remote to control you and it could work quite well.
It only does everything.
The second thing that Heavy Rain did to me was make me consider how it had closed the gap between being involved in something and just watching it.'
