I honestly think a game like Heavy Rain bridges the modern gaming era of graphics/ story, technology back to adventure games.
But, FPS has been on the cutting edge of graphics as much as sport games have for about a decade now. Look at what's on the shelf and how amazing they look technologically, mostly FPS, RPGS (thank God), Sport games. FPS becomes a piece of history in the modern evolution of video games, what's mostly current.
Not until recently with games like Heavy Rain, Still Life, have we seen adventure games like these. Throughout the years, they've tried with games like The Last Express.
Adventure games literally fell out of time because they tried to become modern and just failed to be able to bridge the gap. You can't go back and use ancient video gaming engines. People are intellectually aroused and fascinated by the evolution of video games, they have been since the 70s. The successes of RPG and FPS show this very clearly, as well as the failures of Adventure games.
It wouldn't be very mainstream either.
By the way...
Anyone remember a old game, it's off world, you begin near teleporters and your some sort of marine or something...and it's set up like Rebel Assault, forget the name of it. It's one of those AMVs or whatever you call it.
