I played BioShock Infinite on the PS3 a few years back but it never left my thoughts. I'm not one for FPS games, but this one... I meant to try it because the aesthetic was pretty, it seemed kind of steampunk-ish with a great, weird story. Boys and girls, was I right!
It took me a while getting used to the first-person POV (something I hate) and the shooting basis of the game (I prefer Tomb Raider-like games), but seriously, the design is so stunning I just wanted to keep on playing.
But you know what really influenced my decision? The gameplay itself! It's easy and while I found the "switching powers" mechanics a bit tricky, I LOVED IT! Give me those powers fueled by plasmids and all. After a few hours playing, I realized I was caught up in it. Whenever I would leave the game to do something in real life, I just wanted to get back to it! It was (and still is, in my opinion) THAT good.
Also, that floating city?! Marvelous!
Another note: that twisted and engrossing story just. hit. me. hard. As a huge bookworm (hang with me, here), I'm looking for twists and turns and an excellent dose of action. BioShock did more than deliver.
You know what it truly did?
It amazed and surprised me!
And that isn't easy as I figure out plot twists faster than I say "AWWWWWWWW" when I see a cat.
So, that's me, paying tribute to the one game that got me into FPS games (and into this series).
You're awesome, BioShock Infinite!
You age well, too.
