PSXE Poll Update: Heavy Rain High On Catch-Up Lists
It has already sold over a million copies and should surpass 1.5 million; it's also one of my all-time favorite games.
...and it was the leading vote-getter in our recent poll, which listed out many of the 2010 gems to date, and asked you to pick the game you missed but plan to play during the summer drought. And it seems a great many of you haven't yet experienced Quantic Dream's masterpiece, Heavy Rain, a game that has helped to push the industry in a fresh, positive direction. We prefer to be optimistic about these results, though. Rather than viewing it as an oversight on your part, we'd rather see it this way: Heavy Rain is appealing enough to be #1 on your "missed but must play" lists. Perhaps surprisingly, God of War III was a close second; arguably the best action game of the generation and an easy Game of the Year candidate should've gotten plenty of love from PlayStation 3 owners. But then again, there were a lot of great games in the first six months of this year, and perhaps one of the longer experiences was more worthy of your $60.
But no matter. So long as the great stuff gets played eventually, everyone benefits. This week, we want you to address the hot topic amongst role-playing fans: what will happen with Final Fantasy? Square-Enix boss Yoichi Wada admits to being confused, so what's gonna happen...?
