Heavy Rain: No game over, just game endings

Heavy Rain's got four main characters. All of them can die. So, it's essentially four "lives," and then, game over, right? Not quite. Quantic Dreams is challenging the ingrained notions of game endings. Sure, if your clumsy button presses manage to kill off all four of your characters, the game's mysterious antagonist, The Origami Killer, gets away. But this is simply one of many potential outcomes in a player-created story, director David Cage explained during an E3 breakout session for the game. Even if all four die, there will still be "a sense of closure."

The story is too old to be commented.

I have a feeling Heavy Rain will set a new precedent for what can be accomplished in regards to storytelling in videogames.

It will certainly be interesting to see how this all falls together, but I'm not sure it will "set a new precedent for what can be accomplished in regards to storytelling in videogames." If it's good, sure, but it could just be completely awful.

I'm interested though, I'd consider buying a PS3 for this game.
