Heavy Rain "Not A Video Game Anymore" In Creator's Mind

Illustration for article titled Heavy Rain Not A Video Game Anymore In Creators Mind

While there are some who believe Heavy Rain creator David Cage is a gifted man, others think he (and his games) are a little too full of themselves.


Both types will probably find these comments of interest, then. "Heavy Rain is not a video game anymore in my mind because it breaks with most of the traditional paradigms, but it's fully interactive," he told Destructoid. "If the format becomes successful, we will probably have to find a different name for this type of experience".

And if it doesn't, we will probably have to find a different name for David Cage.

I've always thought that a game that has more in common with a TV show or a movie would have a more mainstream appeal, but I'm not sure that's the case.

Friends of mine who don't play games have heard about Heavy Rain and are completely perplexed as to why anybody would want to play a game that asks you to tie a tie, brush your teeth, shave, or help your son with his homework. To them these mundane actions actually appear even more sad and pathetic than your typical male fantasy shoot-em-up game.
