So, just finished Heavy Rain tonight. I just wanted to share my thoughts and feelings about the game and how it is like when you’re actually playing it and watching every scene.
The fact that the game was released 2011 if I’m not mistaken, I kind of regret playing it just now thinking that it’s not just an awesome game, but a game that separates PlayStation 3 to the Xbox 360 and PC which is more on FPS-centric gaming monsters than a system that releases random games for random people. Definitely a title that showed the potentials of the PS3 and the later PS Move.
Back to the game, Heavy Rain was a what they call an “Interactive Drama”, yes that what they call it, a genre that is right not so familiar. The game is like you’re watching a movie, a thriller-type of movie and you have your options on what wilk happen next. The plot is centered on a so-called Origami killer who kidnaps children and there’s no given clue at the start of the game. What’s so sure is there are 4 main characters within the game, 1 of them might be the killer, or maybe not. You play the 4 characters togetyer with the supporting characters and make choices by pressing button combinations or motion commands, decide the path to take, all of it will help the game decide who’ll be the origami killer.
I just couldn’t forget the game right now, it’s 11:03PM here in Manila already and I’ve got to go to work in the office tomorrow morning. The game just made me feel mixed emtions. It’s thrilling, partly disturbing specially the first few scenes when Ethan lost Jason and weird things happen. It’s too emotional as a game, I could tell by the music used by the game and it’s piano part is still playing in my head. It’s too dramatic and might make you cry at times. Well it did made me.
My cousin was there last night watching me play the game and I believe she was also into the game. I could say that this game could be a definition of an Adult game, not an R18 game, though. But a game that’s only for the adults cause it’s just too dramatic, you know. Well we could say it’s partly R18 due to some morbid scenes and nudity. It’s a game that you play not for fun, but for serious entertainment. You see, most adult games are for fun. Somewhat like the Hunger Games movie, entertaining cause it has a message to give Hope. Very special thanks to Quantic Dreams for this game.
Looks like it’s too long now, but I have more than 5 endings left to beat this game. Scott Shelby was the Origami Killer on my first playthrough and that’s a spoiler for you kekeke. I have to forget about playing GTA 5 for now. And there’s Beyond: Two Souls on my next list. Oh well, ’til the next weekend!! 😉
