What Do You Expect From Heavy Rain?

There are numerous reasons why certain titles obtain a ton of hype and anticipation. Perhaps it's near the top of everyone's list because it's supposed to be especially innovative; maybe much has been made about cutting-edge visuals, or there's always the comfortable eagerness that surrounds a new entry in an established franchise. For instance, while most gamers want something like God of War III for more than one reason, we all know that SCEA Santa Monica has proven themselves with the previous two installments.

But the situation surrounding Heavy Rain is an intriguing one. It's a new IP and while one can argue that the graphics have certainly garnered plenty of attention, this one would have to fall into the "something new" category. It's not that we've never seen it before - those who played Indigo Prophecy have a general idea of the foundation for Quantic Dream's newest project - but perhaps it'll present a revolutionary step in terms of video game storytelling. However, despite this perceived fact; despite everything we've heard about Heavy Rain in the past year; despite all the media and information provided by plenty of interviews with David Cage, I'm wondering what the expectations are for this game.

I mean, even if you've been following along with all the news and details, are you convinced of the experience? Are you going into it expecting greatness but you're not entirely sure how it will attain greatness? Are you planning to lose yourself in the story? Are you banking on the innovative approach to branching gameplay, in that there are no "deaths," and the plot adapts to every success or failure? Or, are you questioning if this concept even works in the world of video games? I'll be really interested to read the responses...

I expect Heavy Rain to be awesome for people who like movies. I have no expectations. It's like MGS4 without gameplay. Ick.

the gameplay is a focus, its just blended into the story, to make it seem seamless. play mw2. when running around gunning down some 'terrorists' is that story, or are you just killing people. they have directly connected the story and gameplay.
OT: I expect it to be another benchmark in story telling. MGS4 was amazing for it. in fact soo good. that im going to stop playing mw2 and start playing mgs4. people, respect me for my willpower.

I question the design decision to hold a damn shoulder button to walk forward. Good story or not, if the controls are frustrating, it's not a fun game.

I agree. (Amazing, I know)

Perfect example....the last Silent Hill. I loved the story but I couldn't get past the controls so I ended up trading the game in before I even finished it.

Great story or not, the controls usually play a big part of whether a game is successful.

For someone like me who reads alot of books and loves to get lost in the story, this game could be something wonderful.

The amount of detail that QD puts into the story and the characters will ultimately make or break this game for me but I am extremely excited. I like the feeling of spending time with a character and feeling invested in what happens to them along the way. If they do this the right way, it could change gaming and the way people view this type of genre.

I'm expecting the gameplay to be as real to life as possible. I want each of the main characters abilities to be limited by skills and knowledge they would possess in the real world.

I really expect to see one of the most unique games to grace a console in a long time. I've never played any of QD's games as far as I know, but I've always liked being presented with choices that can have consequences to face whether good or bad.

I am expecting all the twists and turns in the story, like those 'Choose Your Own Adventure' books I used to read back in the day; only you're not reading a book, and there were no boobies in those books, lol.

On the other hand I'm going to check my expectations at the door the moment the game starts and let the game and my choices take me wherever they're going to. Hope that makes sense.

I really want to try out the demo which is suppose to release soon, but I don't even think I'll have a ps3 to play it on.

My ps3 just turned off on me and I'm hoping to god that it just overheating and not not a ylod. Right now I really am questioning the ps3 failure rate. Ive had it for only 6 months(my first one lasted me 2 years and 5 months), and it's my SECOND ONE.

Sorry for going (way) off topic, but right now I am really upset, and I question whether I should even go with another ps3 if my current one gives in.

I have a feeling that Heavy Rain is going to be my fav game next year. What I love about it is the unique story-telling, the difference between the four playable characters, the way they all intertwine, love the graphics as well (don't think they're Uncharted 2's level though) & the fact that if a character dies, the game continues. What other game does that for you?

I hope it somehow manages to be fun but I've watched everything I've come across and haven't seen any actual mechanics besides QTE's. Which means I have to hope the story will be good and long enough to make up for it.

Last video I saw was trying to make me care about this son but the scripting was much worse than the other scenes. By the end I wanted that kid to get killed, he was so annoying.

I loved (and still love) 'Omikron' and 'Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy', Quantic Dream's previous efforts. They were both wonderful experiences and forward-thinking steps in the universe of video games.
And I expect 'Heavy Rain' to take the foundation built with 'Fahrenheit' and create one of the most involving experiences to grace any medium.
Perhaps my expectations are exceedingly high, but 'Heavy Rain' was one of the main reasons I put so much money down for a PS3 at launch date.
I have a lot of faith in David Cage's vision, and Sony's support is really very encouraging.

deep storyline, ethical choices and hopefully livable controls.
watching some videos i get the feeling the controls are going to bug the sh*t out of me but ill get use to it.
they cant be as bad as dark void.
only thing thats got me a little concerned is how there going to handle the deaths.
hopefully they have a replay section like resistance 2 so you can go back to every part of the game at the flick of the switch.
if i die and have to start the whole game all over again just to find out what would of happened if i did not die im going to be seriously pissed!
i know there trying to make the game realistic, to try and strike emotions in the player.
but their forgetting one thing.
ITS A GAME!
and a games number one purpose is to be fun!
now what part about dieing and having to restart the whole game all over again just to find out what would of happened if you did not die sounds like fun?
none, to me every part of that sounds infuriating!

I am expecting a game on the same level as Fahrenheit with more depth and better graphics.

If it is anything like Fahrenheit it will instantly be in my top 5 for the year and the year just started. I don't expect it to get GOTY because the genre this is really is like a niche market in the same way cult classics are to films. I don't see a ton of people falling in love with the game but the ones that do will love it above most games.

I am interested in this game for many reasons and am intrigued in so many ways. The story was the first thing that got me interested. I want to see how well the story plays out and if I will continue to be interested as I delve deeper and deeper into it. What will happen because of my choices? Will I be shocked? Will I have certain emotions evoked much in the same manner that movies can do?

I want to be drawn in and basically become immersed by the experience. Watching the gameplay videos has sparked a renewed interest but given me a familiar feeling that has me almost aching to "feel" this gaming experience. It's as if I'm a child again, wanting to look at every detail, listen to every word spoken, and not wanting to miss any details that may help me along this journey.

I don't want to find myself expecting too much out of this but I find it very hard not to. Will I be let down by this experience? I don't know but I am willing to find out; good or bad.

My wife will be playing this game with me because I want her to see just what a video game can do so yes, I guess I am expecting a lot. I just hope she doesn't get so drawn in that she'd want to start using the PS3 and invade my personal game time. ;)

I'm expecting a game that doesn't rely on fast-paced action to grab my attention. I'm expecting a game that shifts the player's focus away from mindless button-mashing, to thoughtful and specific QTEs which causes for a more sincere and heart-racing experience. When combined with the no gameover aspect of Heavy Rain, births a new and unique experience for every player and play-through. I want a game heavily driven by story. I want a mystery to solve, I want murders, I want to feel what the characters are feeling (the emotion), I want to put on Madison's make-up. Wait...that didn't come out right...But seriously, this game is like my dream game come true. GOW3, DI, FF13, WKC, B2, LR, and all those other games coming out are on standby for this title. There's just too much to love here with Heavy Rain. Choices...yes...that's another biggie.

I'm expecting a game that's main storyline is so immersive it begins to blur the line between a well done movie and a video game, I expect the overall setting to add to the "sadness" felt by the characters in the story, I also expect an experience that I would liken to Indigo Prophecy in terms of gameplay but a lot better graphic quality/story quantity especially given their development time and the new generation of console technology (remember how remarkable everyone said CoD 4 looked when they had extra time to polish?). I expect a game that helps promote nudity in a tasteful and reasonable way, the human body is a beautiful thing! I also hope that HR shows dev's they don't have to be afraid to make a game without a multiplayer option because if the single player is good enough then your game will sell. I really hope that this game does well, we need to start showing the exclusives more love! I was shocked when I read the Uncharted2 sales were sub-par to be polite

Im expecting something what has been missing from games in quite a few years: A story that really sticks with you and you still think about or remember it a while after you've played it. I want to be sucked into the story and not even think about it being a game. And feel like they are real characters, real people; not just computer generated models.

I'm anticipating superb storytelling, in a unique way which has never been done before, every action will truely have a consequence. I'm hoping for a game which is actually mature, and by that i dont mean containing sex and violence so its an 18+, i mean in the sense of themes and character development, i'm hoping for a good interactive drama.

I'm expecting a game while not as open as a sandbox game, while have of interaction in the scenes were in. I'm hoping if i replay Heavy Rain, the experience will be completely different from the previous one, leading to plenty of replay value. From what i've seen the graphics and art style seem to be doing there job so i dont really have anything to worry on that matter.

H.R. should be groundbreaking, i really think it will step games away from constant violence and make them focus on stronger, more neutral themes.

I'm expecting this cause its innovative and like you said, it belongs to the 'something new' category. I played the GOWIII, Bayonetta and Dante's Inferno demos and they all feel so similar, but that's how gore games are meant to be, still in my mind after GOWIII, I think Devil May Cry 4 is still a masterpiece compared to the other 2.

Its this 'same old' feeling I have about those games and FPS, that's making me want something NEW like Heavy Rain so badly.

I expect a very intriguing, dramatic story, that hopefully will make me sad, happy, excited and intrigued. I believe they will succeed at those things. Other than that, I just wanna play it. I don't know why else. I already pre-ordered the Limited Edition anyway, so I got not other choice now, do I?

Im expecting REAL innovation.

This game is important because it needs to succeed so that things change.

The industry is worse than ever before atm and we need a nice new fresh breeze to restart it, if you will.

Im expecting a great story with hopefully, not too many clich├ęs, emotionally engaging and to not spoon feed you with anything, i like interpretation or just things that make you think.

This game is rooted with Shenmue and it's those kind of games that are completely missing right now because the business men and lawyers that run the industry as opposed to actual game designers, just want to make money instead of supporting ART.

Expectations are high and im hoping that this is that Shenmue and also, the game that changes the game.

You guys never let us down. :)

I can't say anything until the embargo lifts, of course, but based on many of your more detailed responses, I think a lot of you will be...

Eh, that qualifies as saying something. Oh well, guess you'll just have to wait a bit. But it's good to see that at least a few people will actually get the purpose of this game.

I could think of another word that starts with B but I won't say it. :P No! Not that word. The other 'b' word. You people are heinous and despicable.

I can't wait for this game. YEEAARRRGGGH!

Well I've been spoiling it for me a little, seeing the gameplay videos, and One, I don't think the graphics are really that good, I mean the textures and models are, but the animation is a little off. That being said I love how the game takes you from a normal situation and then keeps making it more and more intense... At the end of the mall gameplay trailer my heart was racing, and that is worth a lot for a game in my book...

Well what I am hoping for is a great story, like what Indigo achieved. But at the same time I'm a gamer so the gameplay is going to play a major role in me liking it, I loved MGS4 because of the story but it also has amazing gameplay, same thing can be said for UC2. I think as long as the gameplay is anything like Indigo's it should be fine, from what i've seen it has a game engine similar to Indigo but updated of course so I should enjoy it alot.

i think the game will sell 2 million by the end of 2010, doubt it would sell 3 million units. first month it'll probably gain like 700k units or so

So if I want to play Heavy Rain I have to add DLC to get other chapters?

You don't "have" to as Heavy Rain is "complete" without them.

However, if you are anything like me that doesn't really mean anything and you want the complete experience so when I eventually do get around to picking it up I will be getting the DLC for sure.

This is a game which I would've thought had been made much earlier than now actually, and a game i've been waiting for.

A story which I can shape and "live" in. This comes from me loving classics like Rise of the Dragon, blade runner and film noir.

I want an experience that rivals the quality of other games, like Uncharted 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4:Guns of the Patriots. Simple as That :)

I think i'm expecting a story that draws my attention and makes me feel like I'm in the story. I really want this game, man it can't come fast enough... BS2 will keep me occupied for a few weeks.
