Lets be honest, Indigo Prophecy was a complete shit-show. What could have been a cool murder mystery turned into a giant termite fighting, matrix rip-off, Mayan, alien mess.
Heavy Rain made the decision to not be off the wall bat-shit insane, and that helped, but the game had serious flaws when it came to the plot. Things like the poor use of the
Unreliable Narrator (Kinda a spoiler?)
, atrocious voice acting, Unbelievable character motivations, somewhat questionable use of the female lead
(Get chased by dudes in underwear, fix Ethan's wounds, fix them again, sleep with Ethan, escape evil creepy dude, make yourself look slutty, escape another evil creepy dude, etc)
and huge plot-holes
Setting all these problems aside, Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy (To a lesser degree) got a pass and were considered good games by most people. This was because these story centered games were very rare, to non-existent.
But now, in this post-Walking Dead world we live in, I seriously wonder if David Cage will receive these passes anymore. Who here is excited for this game, and why? Tell Tale has proven that these games don't need a pass. I'll personally buy the game because I want see if this games holds the same ridiculousness that Indigo Prophecy had, but I don't expect a great story because David Cage has always fell short.
Sorry if this is too long, in short, are you interested in this game, and why?
