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.
Transcending time.
Eternal life.

-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.

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).
I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

Indigo Prophecy > Beyond > Heavy Rain

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