About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

14. 'Detroit: Become Human' (PS4)

Set in the near future, Detroit: Become Human takes a look at how humans would react if we were confronted with a new form of intelligence and how androids conceived as machines would be perceived if they started to have emotions.

Michael Keener: Detroit: Become Human seems like a mix of Heavy Rain and a futuristic L.A. Noire. It's been in development for quite a while, and I'm excited to see how it turns out. Famous faces in games is nothing new, but actor Jesse Williams plays the protagonist Jackson Avery, and it's an almost eerie likeness of him, so that sets the tone for graphical expectations for the title.

Andreas Salmen: I'm a sucker for story-driven games and am longing to finally play a title that truly reacts to my decisions. Detroit: Become Human looks like it'll go in that direction, granting more narrative freedom than any other experience. Add to it cool androids and nice visuals, and I'm definitely on board, especially given Quantic Dream's impressive roster of games.

David Silbert: David Cage and Quantic Dream are known for creating emotional, story-driven games. They're also known for putting player choice at the heart of the experience. Detroit: Become Human continues to push these ideals by giving players a startling amount of agency over the overarching narrative. As a trio of characters caught up in the escalating tension between humans and androids, players scour Detroit's detailed scenes in search of vital clues and information. Combine tense life-or-death confrontations with expressive mo-cap and vocal performances, and Detroit: Become Human may just be Quantic Dream's most impressive game to date. Look for it in Spring 2018.
