So which is the better game IYO? Heavy Rain or Beyond?

While Beyond was a great game, I still liked Heavy Rain better because of its story.

I think I like HR a bit more. More engrossing story, larger cast, better soundtrack and a mystery/thriller theme.
BTS looks better, has higher quality voice acting and better pacing though.

Beyond.
-More emotional and more powerful scenes
-Jodie is by far better than any character from HR.
-Better ending
-Better acting

Heavy Rain by a little bit.

I liked both, Heavy Rain is the better overall game. More focused story too.

Beyond is the more interesting game, with some cool ideas and stuff in it.

This.

Beyond was just a better experience in my opinion.

I liked Heavy Rain better. The only thing Beyond had over it was the acting. If Heavy Rain had the level of acting, this wouldn't even be a question.

I liked the story cause it was more grounded in reality. I don't have kids but I have a ton of nieces, and if they disappeared, I would do anything to get them back. That's the kind of thing running through my mind as I played the game. I almost lost it when Ethan was crying in the streets, screaming his son's name. I connected to it a lot better than the sci-fi script in Beyond.

And Heavy Rain had more gameplay and consequences for failing. And more choices and interactions.

I liked Heavy Rain alot more. Beyond I felt had too many inconsistencies with character development, and the finale of the game felt very rushed and cliche. Heavy Rain was alot more original IMO and the mystery i felt was well put together.

HR had its quirks, but i felt they added to the game, where as in Beyond they didn't. I really did not like Jodie as a character, and I feel the writer could not make up his mind what he wanted her to be.

Heavy Rain for me as well, though I still love Beyond (enough to have played it through my first time in a single 11 hour sitting).

Indigo Prophecy > Beyond > Heavy Rain

I'm glad Beyond brought back more mystery and wonder as Heavy Rain was very formulaic and predictable.
