Computer gaming taken further

Launched by Sony for Playstation 3, Heavy Rain has been described as a game with a difference. The gameplay of Heavy Rain revolves around the story, there is no combat, no scoring system, and everything that comes out of it is based on the emotional involvement in the storytelling. Because of its emphasis on storytelling, comparisons have been made with the world of film. Writer and director Neil Labute and Johnny Minkley of Eurogamer TV discuss whether these increasingly literary games pose a challenge to the world of film or merely complement it.
