PS3's Heavy Rain Engages 3D Technology And An Intense Adult Theme - Page 2
There are games that receive, almost for no reason, a seal of "adult," but in the case of Heavy Rain, this game demands the VDA (View Discretion Is Advised) stamp with several moments of intense psychological and physical violence. David Cage said, in an interview at GamaSutra, referring to the adult content of Heavy Rain, "there is a problem with the industry, which continues to make games only for teenagers, or what they think young people want ... But video games are trying to be adults, and we must do content for teenagers and children, but it would be great to start thinking about content for others. This industry seems focused on adolescents. I do not understand why, because there is a huge market of women, older people and adults."
Heavy Rain is that game, but it may fail because it jumps out of “the book of rules” gamers and critics seem to have created, even those aspiring for something new. It may not be the game for all gamers; there's no FPS (first person shooter) or RTS (real time strategy). It’s more like a six-hour long book that grabs you from the first moment, and even when the pace slows down, it keeps you puzzled trying to figure the murder. If you enjoy a good story, this a great game for you.
