GDC11: 72% of Gamers Completed Heavy Rain

David Cage, president of Quantic Dream (Heavy Rain developer), announced this staggering statistic at the company’s panel during GDC. As a gamer who has earned the Platinum trophy in this interactive crime drama, you can believe me when I say…wow. Not only do other, more popular, titles have less of a completion rate, but this game is emotionally exhausting. Again, you can trust me on that fact. I had to watch over 20 scenarios of happy and mostly sad endings. The fact that over 70% of people who played Heavy Rain finished at least one scenario, fully, is astounding.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
