  • How Quantic Dream Is Taking The Leap That Games Need To Evolve

    Premium-Inhalt. It isn't often that we see games starring seasoned actors on display. That's not to say that it hasn't happened, but it just isn't very common outside of movie tie-ins. Of course the transition of star talent from television to movies has become extremely common, so it only makes sense that videogames would be the next logical step. Quantic Dream is taking that next step in an effort to help the game industry mature, and I think that's ultimately a good thing.Perhaps one of the more notable occurrences of this happening is (Mad Men) playing Officer Cole Phelps in L.A. Noire. They used his facial movement, voice, and likeness to really sell the character. This is somewhat special, because Rockstar didn't explicitly tout him around as part of the marketing campaign, as is the case with Beyond: Two Souls. To my knowledge, there hasn't been a situation in recent memory where the actor who portrayed the lead character was featured as prominently as is for her part in Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls.
