@ immyb13: Oh I am not saying that I didn't like it. I preordered the collectors edition, platinumed it, and it is a game that I will never trade in. After a little reconsideration I may put it in my top 10 but it just wouldn't be that high on the list. Have you played Heavy Rain?? From what you are telling me that you liked about B2S I think you would absolutely love HR. Do yourself a favor and pick that up. It has to be CHEAP now. As far as Jodie, yeah it's impossible not to love that character. As I said, Ellen Page is THE reason to play that game. She really knows how to connect with an audience and tug at the heart strings. She can make bland/awkward/uninspired dialog, for example David Cage's writing or the script for Juno, actually feel genuine and thoughtful. She also appropriately underplays some of that awful over-the-top cheesy writing that seems to be Mr. Cage's signature style. Very good game but for me does not compare to TLOU. Let me put it this way, lol this is the home screen on my phone:

I have beaten Heavy Rain and it really was good, I really enjoyed it+the twist ending. For some reason I loved the story of Jodie Holmes more lol i dunno haha it must be the huge adventure that she went through and how it changed her in the end. Brilliant story tho I really hope they make a sequel for it.

Beyond Two Souls was great... but I did enjoy Heavy Rain more. I don't know, I think it's because the atmosphere was so gloomy and the fact that I like mystery and crime game type settings in general, which is why I tend to enjoy games like LA Noir and other similar games Smiley Happy

But I like how there are a lot of ways to apporach the setting in Beyond Two Souls

Wow..that's interesting.  I didn't know Ellen Page was a character in Beyond Two Souls, but I could have sworn that Ellen Page was the voice for Ellie in TLOU.  I even thought they modeled Ellie after her because she looked a lot like Ellen Page and her voice and mannerisms reminded me very much of Ellen Page.  Then my wife looked it up and it was Ashley Johnson (no idea who that is).
