I think I have a pretty valid point. If the game is self-aware, it could be great. It's the difference between, say, the intentional badness of Pirahna 3D and the real badness of (what will probably...

I hope this game is at least aware of how insanely tacky it looks. If Frank Coniff is on board, it must, right?

I've always found fan games, much like fan films, inexplicable. They're almost always terrible. It's like, "hey! Do you have an intense desire to output something creative but lack any sort of...

Even so, it's not an overused film technique. It's a recognizable one, but overused? Save for some very particular genres, it's rare to actually see somebody use split-screen in a feature film.

The "what is art" argument is so tired and pointless it makes me want to blow my fucking brains out. But then I'm sure we'd be interperting the splatter on the wall behind me for weeks to come.

As somebody who owns this, make note that it's only about 20 minutes long. It has some replayability, but still won't amount to much more than an hour even then, and it has almost no relation to the...

I am not generalizing when I say that calling Heavy Rain the worst game of this generation is hyperbole. That is far too strong a statement. Have you seen the amount of shovelware that gets dumped on...

It's still a video game. Even (and excuse the comparison) Dragon's Lair is still a video game. If I had to compare it to anything, it would be a Bioware RPG with none of the combat but all of the...

Heavy Rain certainly hits a lot of the right notes, but it is by no means a perfect game. The voice acting in parts, especially the children, can be downright bad. Some of the accents, like that of...

Probably. Just like the people at NMA will debate endlessly whether Fallout 3 is or isn't "Fallout." The reality is that it really doesn't fucking matter.

No, you don't understand! If a game doesn't use the same tired methods of an established dead genre, it cannot be part of said genre!

But you wouldn't know any of that unless you played through the game more than once or pored over reviews. Either way, it doesn't matter, because the game remains engaging. If somebody doesn't play...

To be fair, since these are choices the player can choose to make, it's their outcome that would be a spoiler. This is merely an event (and one present in the advertising, I might add).
