The latest round of involves one of the more widely known personalities, Cliff Bleszinski (“CliffyB”). In his small tweet, he gives credit to the game for birthing “a new genre, the “Interactive Drama.””

In any case, gamers have shown with their voices and their wallets that they approve the direction Quantic Dream took with this game. Post your responses in the comments section below.
