Critical Gamer Writes: Heavy Rain, the Playstation 3 exclusive coming out February 26, is going to change the way people think about games. That's right. I said it, and I'll say it again: Heavy Rain is going to change how people think about video games (yes, even you) and it may very well alter the medium forever.
What is Heavy Rain, exactly? It's been described as an adventure game, along the lines of titles such as Grim Fandango or Day of the Tentacle. The game's story centres around a serial killer (dubbed the origami killer because duh, he leaves an origami figure with his victims), whom you pursue over the course of the game. Writer/Director David Cage has described the game as a "film noire thriller," while others have simply dubbed it an interactive film.
