Re: Bioshock Infinite *OT*

In Response To: Bioshock Infinite *OT* (Cody Miller)

: "I have played many games in my life, some of which have hinted at where
: the medium could go, but I never expected any one game to so reinvigorate,
: redefine, and open up the possibilities of video games without having to
: eschew their fundamental pleasures" - Adam Sessler

: I hope he realizes what he's saying. If this statement is true, and if
: the game does this, then my entire view on the medium itself will be
: proven wrong. I am very skeptical, but always open to possibility.

: This may very well be the first new console game I try in 2013.
I purchased the Ultimate Rapture Edition because of the value it brought up, including all the DLC is definitely the way to go for compilation packages (*Stares daggers* Mass Effect Trilogy). I had barely any interest in BioShock, only playing through the first one after borrowing it and even then only getting in a few levels. Now I've completed Bioshock in it's entirety and am starting up Bioshock 2. Pair that with having kept up with Infinite's trailers and news, I've become a newly appreciative person of the Bioshock franchise and a fan.

But, ss much as I've been hyped for Infinite, I've become cautious with purchases this year. For one this it's technically the final year for this generation's consoles and I don't want to be stuck with games that end up not being backwards compatible on the 720/Durango/Whatever They Call It. The other reason, it means that at this point price drops happen much quicker even for best-selling games. So I think I'll hold off, unless a really big urge comes over me.
