I know it's polarizing, but I found Heavy Rain to be a great experience and of course depressing for a number of reasons. I actually really like the game play. There was a lot put into it. The only fault it has is the lack of replay value (but the free DLC does add on, it's too bad all of the parts were never completed. Also if you're weird and hardcore, one can play it again and again in order to practice at a perfect game). Still, if you have a PS3 around and you haven't played it, it's probably worth picking up used on eBay for $6 or something just to have the experience.
