Give this review to anyone BUT Tom cause he's just going to sink it to 7.5 or 8 at best given his previous score to Last of Us an 8. This idiot should be left with the kind of genre he likes best aside from adventure games.

I'm definitely keeping my PS3!  The first time I've held on to a console.  It was easier to let go of them, when there was backwards compatibility.

Wow, PS3 is going out with a bang. Some great games coming out.

Mad respect for these people, you can feel the passion in their voices. 

This is exactly what games need.

Now that I think about it, violence is the main theme is so many games. I can think of sprots/racing/sim video games and card/board video games and some half assed mobile/facebook games. Its nice to see someone making an effort to do something different.

Oh hey great job by the way, COD and madden nfl for the constant shovelware. Now you money grubbing bastards have contaminated halo and gears of war into the shovelware model.

Whatever you want to call this, a game or film, it does look good, but to me, more importantly, it's something that famous Hollywood actors are happy about contributing in, and for that, I hope the game's a success. Furthermore, I think for many, this could potentially be very close to home, certainly for game critics with recent deaths like Ryan Davis and even Roger Ebert.

William Dafoe is a personal favorite actor of mine and to have him in a video game is pretty awesome I'm really looking forward to this game!!

Yes...but is the GAME gonna be any good to actually PLAY...?

From what I've read in some early previews...maybe not.

VideoGAME.

Not VIDEO or MOVIE.

I know my opinion might not be a popular one, but I'm quite concerned with Hollywood celebs being tapped into video games. It usually means additional costs  to pay these celebs' significantly high "talent fees." Money that game companies could be spending to increase the salaries of their hard-working staff,  programmers, testers, and so forth.

A video game can do well & even present an effective storytelling aspect even without high profile Hollywood celebs in it.

I'm also turned off at some celebs' arrogance that whenever they see a video game character that bears some resemblance to their appearance, that they are being "ripped off."

Willem Dafoe, Kelsey Grammer, Keith David, James Earl Jones, and Morgan Freeman need to start some kind of Awesome Sexy Cool Voices Club.

@toyo75 i agree with you on the budget part of your comment. i see this turning into tomb raider all over again. if they dont sell x amount of copies then the game will be considered a flop by the developer cuz they didnt make back more then they spent on making it.

do you really need millions of dollars to tell a story?  i know a lot of ppl would say yes, but if it could potentially hurt you then why do it?

@Icame2play I say keep an eye on it, these behind the scenes looks at movies (and now games) are always there to try and make the viewer feel more passionate about the movie/game but also puff it up, while coyly promoting it. But it does look pretty interesting, and the opening line persuaded me, the fact that he was influenced by a loss of someone close to him.

@slayerSS-3 Compare all of the critic and gamer scores to the like on your comments, and you'll see the fact. I don't think David Cage's games is meant to be enjoyable for immature gamers though. No offense.

@shalashaska88 When you draw her face on your pillow  do you also write the name? Or does that break the immersion?

@videogamer008 Hmmmm. You shouldn't hurl inane comments. I was exclaiming, in dispair!, my annoyance at seeing a title that I would love to play through, as an exclusive on a console I do not own. I then pondered the idea of buying such a console for the sake of playing such exclusives like this. 

 Have a super weekend too!

@Benifited @toyo75 Innovation, that's why. I see nothing wrong hiring renowned professional actors to perform in emotionally intense game. This brings game quality to the next level in terms of realistic, immersive, etc.

@Benifited @toyo75 Tomb Raider really opened out eyes. But If a publisher chooses to go into motion capture, I think they need to spend a great deal of money on the actors.

Consider: If we strive to be better every time, our quality bar will rise. Pushing that bar means hiring the best. If we don't try to be better every time and if we choose to be content with what we have, I think we'll develop a serious case of cultural stagnation.

On a side note, hiring Hollywood actors, helps promote video games to people that are not really into video games to begin with. And I think that is developing our culture as well.

@jark888yeaaaah right because the story is very deep...

Not all the reviewers give the game a good score because of the story just read destructoid for example...

The story is a mess specially the ending, just because it have a lot of plot twist and it is touchy doesn't mean it's good. 

What does anything to do with enjoying immature games?and exactly what is an "immature gamer" what games does an immature gamer likes?

@Spyre1984 @videogamer008 Buy a PS3! So many great games to play on there and like a ton of GOTY's too. Demons Souls, Uncharted 2, Demons Souls, Journey, Metal Gear Solid 4, Uncharted 3, soon to be The Last of Us or Beyond 2 Souls

@slayerSS-3 @jark888 Ask yourself how well do you understand the message of the game? Give me a short review of it.
