Well, I think it's great of course.

My main hope is that this illustrates that there is scope for more simply offering up endless variations on currently popular genres, that we see more adventure style games as a result, and that we see more publishers looking to support a spread of different titles rather than 3 new FPS hoping one clicks and produces another MW.

I also hope QD progress as well. HR was quite a leap from their previous title, but I felt some clear flaws remain and hope to see QD take another leap in ability in their narrative skills next time around.




Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

I want a survival horror with Heavy Rain style gameplay.

SILENT HILL/HEAVY RAIN?

It'd be like me winning $300,000,000.

i would rather win $300.000.000

 

...and then spend 50.000.000 to have Quantic Cream making that game



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

The legs are very impressive...

Interesting facts : Heavy Rain is selling better than inFamous, has outsold Motorstorm: Pacific Rift and will probably sell more than Killzone 2 since KZ2 sales have died and HR seems to be have massive legs.



Confirmed: HEAVY RAIN will support Move!

Oh boy am I late to this party, I am ashamed....

But on to the good news. I am glad how great this game has sold, its nice to see a game that makes the story as important of a feature as the graphics or the explosions. I do think we will see more games like this, with the success that Heavy Rain has seen you will see Sony possibly fund more projects like this. Which would be a great thing for the gamers.

I'm really happy Heavy Rain is successful since it means we'll probably get other great games like HR in the same genre. I think HR is the real evolution of old school adventure point and click games and we really needed a game like this one.

Now there are some things which can be improved in execution, like the way voices were captured, or the scenario if David Cage totally handles this part to real professional writers.

Overall, I think HR is a nice step in the right direction for video games. The final product is something Cage can be proud of, and sales definitely show those games have a potential.

The next perfect move would be Sony buying Quantic Dream, or at least QD making a bigger budget game in the same genre than HR.

I agree with this. I feel like HEAVY RAIN could be the foundation of a genre entitled: "Drama" and all of it's shortcomings could be taken care of in future releases. Throughout the game, I kept saying that to myself: "man this game has some shortcomings, but what it does right, it REALLY does well".
