I had just started chapter 2 over the weekend and was really enjoying the game. Anyway today in college i was talking about this game with a mate the next thing someone else joins in and told us who the killer is. Im now thinking there isn't much point to the game.
Has anyone had their game spoilt aswell ? is there much point in carrying on ?

Well I got told who the killer was, at first I felt angry and I thought the game will probably be pointless but I just thought what the heck because they didn't say how it all plays out.
So my point is that even though I know who the killer was I don't really know for certain how the endings will play out.

No one has actually answered your question yet.
Of course you should continue! You have it with you, don't you?
People are replaying the game 3/4 times in a row, what does that tell you? It doesn't matter if you know the killer. Sure, you'll never get to go "oh no! I didn't see that coming" when they reveal who the killer is, but well, you will still be able to enjoy the terrific story and action of the game. You don't really get the kind of experience Heavy Rain offers anywhere else. It's that simple. It won't be the same, granted, but it'll still be interesting and nerve-wrecking, I assure you. Unless, of course, it's not your cup of tea. But by now you should know what kind of game you're playing. It only gets better.
So I ask you, why the hell not? Don't let others spoil it for you AND keep you from experiencing something. You never know what you'll be missing if you do (and I mean about everything in life, not just a game).

Kinda like Homer Simpson with Empire Strikes Back...
And I agree... I despise people who purposely do that... I hate false spoilers too, like how this ***** went around posting on my area of the PSF that Snake dies in MGS4 the week the game came out... The net effect of it is it still gives you a perception of the event of the game before you play it, whether it is true or not.
I think it can vary a bit with timing and the level of story importance in the game... I mean, if you stumble on a plot spoiler for GTAIV from reading the PSF then I feel no sympathy for you. On the other hand, we shouldn't have to pigeon foot around the Heavy Rain section for fear of spoilers..
As far as story spoilers go, again... the game comes into play too... If someone says that Marcus and Dom face off against General RAAM, then big deal... you know, Grid Iron Meat Heads of War, the game is inevitably going to end in a fight against the lead villain, and shock, horrer, they will kill him... Who is the Origami Killer? Who lives or dies in FFXIII?.... that is a big deal.
My best suggestion, especially with a game like Heavy Rain, is just go on media blackout until you have finished the game, at least as far as media related to the game... Youtube really is the last site I would be visiting, considering the level of childishness and intelligence of 99% of people that comment on it.

I had the news about the Heavy Rain killer spoiled on Thursday before the game actually was released by a friend who got the game delivered early to his door and decided to skip School in order to play it.
I remember myself outside the GAME store after School with money in hand, wondering if I should get the game after all.
In the end I decided to buy it of course. Was upset in a way that my friend was right, but it was great playing the game all the way through myself and confirming who the killer is.
