David Cage -- revolutionary?

   0
David Cage is, undoubtedly, a very talented man. A very talented man with a clear vision -- a vision which he pursues with each game he releases. However, David Cageís visions jar with the ideas of those who kickstarted the gaming industry so long ago. David Cage wants to concentrate more focus on storytelling and narrative. He wants technical oddities removed from games altogether and he wants, above all, for the player to be engrossed in his stories -- even if such immersion comes at the cost of player choice and player freedom.



I have no idea what relevance this small rodent has in relation to Heavy Rain. However, I will leave it here for your enjoyment.

Here are the features I referred to while writing this blog:

About Lord Death of Murder Mountainone of us since 2:06 PM on 03.18.2011

Iím Oran, a fifteen year-old gamer and Scottish native. Iíve been gaming for as long as I can remember and my love for the pastime has grown exponentially (HELL YEAH) since early childhood, back when I was allowed to crap in my pants and I wasnĎt mocked for my love of the Pokťmon games. The golden days.

Iím a thoroughly Ďmoderní gamer, and Iím a little ashamed of that. I am most comfortable with games from this generation and the previous, but Iíve played games from past generations, such as Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64 and a few of the Castlevania games.

I discovered Destructoid after purchasing Deadly Premonition, the cover of which boasts a 10/10 rating from Jim Sterling. I visited the website to check out the review, and accidentally stumbled upon the Community Blogs. Previously, I had been experimenting with GameSpotís blogging feature but I quickly tired of that and, thusly, the Community Blogs presented a perfect alternative.

Iím hoping to break into gaemz jarnalizm. I feel I have a serviceable command of the English language and I realise that I have plenty of time to hone my mad skillz, blud. I follow the gaming industry with avid interest and I have the ability to formulate convincing arguments; arguments which I take care to support with fact. Iím going to stop whoring myself out now, but if you know of anywhere a budding writer can test his skills -- other than Destructoid itself, of course -- then please let me know. I will love you eternally.
