David Cage: Games Are Made For Teens
Speaking exclusively to NowGamer in part one of our huge in-depth interview with Heavy Rain auteur David Cage, the outspoken director feels that the industry needs to grow up.
"As an industry we make games for teenagers and kids," says Cage, "so we try to make things very casual and as clear as possible. The bad guys have to be very baaaaad and the hero has to have big muscles and look fantastic, and the women have to have big boobs and be very sexy because to a teenager, this is what women are."
Wishing an end to that mentality and seeming to feel very much an important part of the growing-up process of the industry, he sums up: "I think we’ve passed that stage and we can go to the next one and say, ‘You know what, you can be a very evil character, but it’s not written on your face’."
