David Cage, Greatest Game Designer Ever

He’s only ever designed and directed a trio of games since founding Quantic Dream, but David Cage is still the greatest mind the video game industry has seen as far as I’m concerned. Yes, I’m putting him in precisely the same league of greats like Shigeru Miyamoto, Ralph Baer and others of the same stature.

I wouldnt call any game designer the greatest one ever since all of them pretty much do their own thing and are great in different ways.

But Heavy Rain definitely made David Cage one of my favorites

Greatest, no. Most Daring, highly likely.

Oh, so someone's opinion is wrong? I'm sorry, I didn't know we're all drones and shared the same thoughts. I guess I should reconnect with the hive mind now. /s

Back on topic, he's one of my favorites. Don't know about being THE best. I like Fumito Ueda, Ken Levine, and Katsura Hashino a lot too. Oh yeah, and Shinji Mikami. Of course, Casey Hudson is a recent favorite of mine. Amy Hennig is an excellent writer whom I wish had more control of the actual game design as well.

Also, that reminds me, of the three, the only one I haven't played is Omikron. I should really remedy that this summer.

Lastly, I'd love to see more true auteurs in the gaming industry. One's that can translate their vision to screen as an artist would a painting. Fumito Ueda and David Cage are two of the first that come to mind. They handled both lead roles (game design/direction and writing). I'd love to see more.

He is freaking amazing. His games are just... Masterpieces, can't wait to see what he comes up with next! Sony is definitely lucky to have him developing for Playstation.

I disagree. But I still love his games.

If your standards are low

SnakeCQC2354d ago

guess you play mw3 24/7

Neckbear2354d ago

At least that's a game.

NeoBasch2354d ago

You know, the only reason you're getting disagrees is because of the implication that Heavy Rain is not a game in your statement. I'm sure everyone who disagrees with you acknowledges MW3 as a game.

Just goes to show how much of a bigot you're being. I hate using that word personally, but it's the only word I could think of to describe you.

Not the greatest. ONE of the greats. Heavy Rain really left an impact on me even with a few minor plot holes.His story telling was better then most of the crap many developers have the nerve to call game plots and stories.His 'Kara' demo made me care about and be concerned about her life in few short minutes. That is powerful story telling to make you care about a character you never saw before in such a short time. People who try to underplay QD's talent are idiots.
