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.
