I really dig Heavy Rain as well. I know from the onset that the end experience is going to be deeply flawed, but for what they're trying to do with this game, as a proof of concept it's really fantastic.

I swear moms are the enemy of all that is righteous. Mine did the exact same thing with my old NES, Sega, and Playstation consoles. I think she gave them to one of my dipshit cousins who probably used them either as chew toys or something to pee on.

^^ I kept all the boxes for my old sierra games for years after I upgraded to new PCs that didn't have a 5.25" drive. I used to keep tons of notes/maps for some of those games. The hint books were cool. They were printed with black ink and then had red crosshatches all over-top the black, and you'd use a red filter to read them. Ah, the days before teh internet. I eventually threw them out though. They just took up space.

Well I tried playing Dragon Age today. I was able to play it once. Yay.

Then, the dreaded "Display driver igfx has stopped working and has successfully recovered" error popped up, and my game froze, which has led to multiple crashes each time I try to play the game now.

This same thing happend after playing Civ 4 too. No idea how to fix it. Running the game on my laptop since that's the only time I play, when on travel. Friggin Dell Inspiron 1525 w/ Windows Vista and Mobile Intel 965 chipset graphics.

Updated your drivers recently? That's what a quick search comes up with. PC gaming is such a pain in the ass sometimes.

I still have my consoles and most all the games luckily (well i left my nes at my grandma's for the younger siblings/cousins and bought one of the new fake nes things). It's funny because i still have nes games and my snes console working perfectly but my younger siblings and cousins break their shit non-stop and have gamecubes that have the reset button jammed from getting sticky from lord knows what.

Kids today....

Yeah and apparently having the current or latest drivers causes more problems!

I searched through some forums and a WoW forum told me to use an older Intel driver so I did that and so far so good.... of course there's probably a 95% chance it won't last long

Agreed. It's not a FPS or RPG, and for that alone I'm intrigued. I'm a sucker for detective/film noir stuff, and I've loved the demo so far.

Was Indigo Prophecy worth playing?

That's really weird. Did you uninstall all your old video drivers before installing the new ones? From what I read on the problem, it's because there are two sets of drivers the game is trying to use, which causes the crash.

As for old consoles and games, I think the oldest one I have now is a Nintendo 64. I might have my old Ocarina of Time cartridge somewhere. That was an awesome game.

The sound in Heavy Rain is awesome. I'm excited about the game, but when I was playing the demo, I had an urge to run. It does look like a very interesting game.
