I feel like I'm crazy here. Am I crazy?
It's true what ppl say about the writing. I literally think anyone can write better than what's displayed in Detroit and I mean anyone. Me, you, or someone's 7 year old daughter and her pet kitten.
But the thing is, the audio/visual departments at Quantic Dream did a fantastic job. And when a game sounds and looks this good, the world can't help but come alive. Yes, every idea, every moment, every scene is either borrowed or lifted from something you've probably seen before but when it's put into an interactive medium where you can engage with it, even if it's in small and limited ways, you can't help but be drawn in.
Beyond: Two Souls put a really sour taste in my mouth but I enjoyed Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain (haven't played Omikron) and I have to say, Detroit might be their best work. YMMV definitely depending on your genre preferences and maybe I'm just a Sci-Fi sucker but I thought it was pretty cool...
