I'm looking forward to giving Detroit a try! I've considered myself something of a fan of David Cage's work since I played Heavy Rain a number of years ago. Loved that game! Also enjoyed Beyond: Two Souls and Indigo Prophecy.

These things said, I also feel like I've been spoiled over the last five years of so by the wonderful assortment of stories we've seen come out of the indie community, to the point that David Cage's titles now seem a little narratively primitive compared to many of the options out in there in gaming, to me. As I've scoured the trailers for Detroit: Become Human since its announcement in late 2015, the first one, revolving around Kara, had my interest very much piqued. But then the ones about Connor and his damsel in distress scenario and generic black guy Markus came out and I couldn't help but feel like things were starting to look a little cliched. When I saw those two, I couldn't help but, in each case, start to feel like maybe I'd outgrown some aspects of Cage's style in recent years. I hope these characters all turn out to be as multi-dimensional as the title of this game suggests they should be.
Still, the premise has real potential and the first trailer still gets me. I'm not foreseeing this becoming my favorite game of the year, but I am definitely going to give it a shot.
