I watched their entire playthrough of that game, and man was that game ass.

This.

I find it so hard to take David Cage seriously. His whole thing is 'I'M GONNA CREATE A REVOLUTION IN VIDEO GAMES...BY MAKING THEM LIKE MOVIES!!!!!!!!' I kinda take issue with that way of thinking anyway since he's basically implying that, for games to be taken seriously as a narrative medium, they need to be movies, which is pretty outdated seeing as many games have proven they can provide a powerful narrative without resorting to that.

I did kinda enjoy Heavy Rain despite it's laughable badness though (or maybe because of it). This game could be alright.

I have been a fan of him since Indigo Prophecy. Its something relaxing and enjoyable. Its like playing The Walking Dead, same kind of emotional driven gameplay that works well for me

You're a joker, you watched an entire playthrough commentary on the game.

I had a riot with both and William Dafoe is an unreal actor. Expecting some American Psycho performances in this game.

I was also a fan of L.A Noire. I think there should be more interactive movie type games, always enjoyed a story more than dicking around anyway. Can you imagine playing Mass Effect without a shit story? I'd probably bail

I'm in no way arguing against good storytelling in games (Mass Effect being one of my favourite series), I'm arguing that David Cage doesn't have good storytelling in his games hahaha

The Walking Dead is pretty much what I feel like David Cage has been trying to accomplish, except done really really well.

The commentary was way better than the game. For a game that purports to be about being like a movie, it sure did have a terrible plot, voice acting, and execution. The Walking Dead did the whole story-telling thing right. Heavy Rain didn't.

P.S. JAAAAASON! JAAAASON! JAAAAAASON!

I actually really enjoyed Heavy Rain. I was totally mind fucked at the end, actually. It was literally the only one I hadn't considered.

They did the whole blacking out thing because they were originally going to do dream sequences but they cut that out last minute without removing the blacking out. So it makes no fucking sense. The game also straight up lies to you so you don't figure out the identity of the killer so you don't figure out who it is. Game is shit. You should feel ashamed of yourselves.

You were going to play dream sequences? That would have been sweet, explains a lot though.

You're being pretty harsh but I know its just the way you talk. I'm trying to think of a moment when it "lies to you". But I think even that is a bit of a stretch.

Did any of you guys play Indigo Prophecy (Fahrenheit)? Or did you only play this generation? I see Cage improving constantly and can't wait for this one. They took Scott in Heavy Rain right out of Derailed, a movie with Clive Owen. Literally took the guys exact costume and character/actor and through it into Heavy Rain. I recognized it being a fan of Derailed and had something of a really enjoyable moment. Is it stealing an idea? Probably, but I had fun with it

There are also these ridiculous long and drawn-out fight sequences that don't fit at all and are just there to be cool.

You're criticizing a game for cool parts?

Ahh I thought it was emotional but I can see how you could find it silly. I like cheesey bullshit sometimes

I definitely understand your viewpoint on that Taxer. Although, the same could be said if any character was the killer. I guess they could have done without the misleading thoughts for the killer, but at the same time if that's a feature they had in the game they had to do it like that to keep the story enthralling. It wouldn't have mystery at all if it came right out and told you what was going on
