Speaking in an interview with Gama, Quantic Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere has said that if done right, games could be “meaningful.”

He said: “I think that the most important goal for us is to show that video games can be more than just shooting, driving — that games can be meaningful.”

de Fondaumiere was talking in the interview of his hopes for the developer’s upcoming PS3 exclusive Heavy Rain, where he welcomed the coined term for the game “interactive movie.”

“The best short-form definition we found [for Heavy Rain] was ‘interactive movie,’ which is a double-edged sword quite simply because it reminds people of those games at the early ’90s when you were basically in a movie and you had the choice between going to the left or opening the door to the right — which of course Heavy Rain is absolutely not.”
