Nothing warms my heart more than a video game that attracts legitimate mixed reactions. There are people who are really enjoying Beyond: Two Souls, but there are people who absolutely hate it. We’re talking actual hate here. People who think this game should not exist.
I wish to state for the record that I liked Heavy Rain. I think I enjoyed talking about Heavy Rain more than I enjoyed playing it, but as far as I’m concerned that’s part of the ‘experience’ of media in general: sharing it with others. If anything David Cage’s games start a conversation because they demand to be talked about. Good or bad.
And this is why I’m talking about Beyond: Two Souls right now — conversation.
What did you think of the game? My brother in-law/Kotaku cohort Ben White has been playing it in tandem with his (largely) non-gaming wife. She controls Aiden, he controls Jodie Holmes. I find that quite interesting. Quite cool actually.
Anyone else doing that? And what do you think about the game in general?
