Not even talking about the voice acting.

If a game company is going to focus on story, shouldn't they at least focus on a good one?




If you think Heavy Rain's story is good then you probably consider Gigli to be a cinematic masterpiece.

The plot doesn't make sense and all you can come up with is "troll". All the plot holes and you say it's good.

Since you're a liar, and a new user, that makes you the troll.

none of the game makes sense in the least and all you say is troll. Funny.

The plot doesn't make sense, plus plotholes.


Good stories do not contain those faults.

I was under the impression that it was interactive software with set goals for the player, and the ability to either succeed or fail trying to reach those goals.

Otherwise known as a video game.

Yep, almost everyone aside from me is trolling in this topic since they are unable to see the obvious severe faults with the story to Heavy Rain, when I provided the evidence in the links.

(SPOILER WARNING—I WILL BE SPOILING THINGS—BECAUSE IT'S HARD TO CRITICIZE WITHOUT DOING THAT)

Heavy Rain is the story of a man who gets depressed because his child is too stupid to live.

I'm not questioning the decision to open the game with the tragic loss of a child—if anything it's nice to see a game that delves into the psychology of its characters a little more deeply. I just wish David Cage knew the slightest thing about children's development, or was able to remember his own childhood. I'm speaking specifically about the events leading up to Jason's death, which left me dumbfounded. Jason begs for a balloon, then wanders off with it into a crowd. Ethan (the dad) chases after him, and finds Jason has wandered outside and across a street.

How did Jason manage to get so far? Ethan is too much of a wuss to push people out of his way while chasing after his child.

Upon seeing his father again Jason immediately sprints across the street into traffic—he's killed by a car, and Ethan is knocked into a coma trying to save him.

Nothing sounds too outlandish about that, right? That's the kind of tragedy that befalls families all the time. Except for one point: Jason's age. After playing this section of the game I described the events separately to three friends, all of whom agreed that it was a plausibly melodramatic way to open a story. Then I asked each one how old they assumed the character Jason was. The answers were: "4 or 5", "5", and "in kindergarten, or maybe a little younger".

Jason is ten. We know this because his tenth birthday party opens the game, right before the mall incident.
