#13. HEAVY RAIN
Systems: PS3
Release Date: Feb. 23
French trailblazers Quantic Dream honed the interactive techniques they explored in the cult favorite Indigo Prophecy to create a dark, moody, ever-changing mystery that places narrative agency above all else. The voice acting may be a little Euro-sounding for the American neo-noir it aims to be, but if a game has the stones to out-QTE Resident Evil 4, we'll tip our cap. And when the Move-enabled version came out, it was the weirdest game of Charades, like, ever.
