Cage Pays Tribute to ICO Developer

Eurogamer: "Heavy Rain developer David Cage has described ICO and Shadow of the Colossus director Fumito Ueda as one of "very, very few artists" working in videogames.

"I really think he has something interesting and something unique. He has a real sense of poetry in his games. It's very different from how I see games and what I want to make, but I really love his work," Cage told Eurogamer during a visit to Paris to see Heavy Rain in development, adding that ICO and Shadow are the only two games that have the emotional impact he sought in Fahrenheit and seeks again now.

"I think the more it goes, the more this industry will need art directors and less producers," he elaborates, rolling his eyes a little as he says "producers". "We'll still need producers, of course, but we need to feel that there are people behind games. I've always loved games that have a soul, where you can feel the people behind them, and it's rare these days."

Quoted for truth.

And this is why we need to see the new Team ICO project soon, we wanna see the next game from them which can bring the same kind of emotion they did in Shadow of the Colossus or ICO.

We NEED more games like this! I can't stand most of the games today. The story in most games are poorly written. An example of great gameplay but TERRIBLE story is Gears of War. The gameplay is great but the story was absolutely horrendous. Now, I know a lot of gamers don't care about story, but I do. And I'm sure many of you do too on this site because most of you are mature adults. I feel that Heavy Rain will create a new standard in the video game industry. I hope that many developers will adhere to this and begin to write some incredible stories.

Am I the only one who thinks the idea for Metal Gear Solid 4 was great but the writing was not so good?

hotdawg3601d ago

was good considering all Kojima had to bookend with MGS4. I'm sure he could've split MGS4 into two games making them MGS4 and MGS5 respectively and adding more gameplay but I thought MGS4 was amazing and one of the best games I've ever played.
