If there is one thing that became apparent in 2012 and the beginning of 2013 is that the game developers as a whole are in a state of disarray. Except for some minor hits like DisHonored and Journey most of 2012 was spent discussing and rehashing how good Skyrim was. Out right horrid trainwrecks like the ending of Mass Effect 3 and the opening week of Simcity have shown Electronic Arts is unable to keep any of the various developers they bought and paid for making hits and in fact they seem hellbent on destroying the videogame industry as a whole.
I can summarize Bishock Infinite in four words… GAME OF THE YEAR.
Sure sure but Grand Theft Auto 5 blah blah still needs to come out… frankly Grand Theft Auto 4 sucked so bad I have no hope that Rockstar figured out where they went wrong with that series. Those demos looked like they were trying to be even more realistic which is one of the signs they still do not get it.
So since I have just completed BioShock Infinite (You can finish this game comfortably in a weekend.) I can say hands down BUY IT! The dang thing is as close to a old fashioned “red white and blue and very racist” Disney style video game as possible with far more twisted ideas kicking around and you get the original BioShock for free. Such a deal!
Probably one of the few Grade A games that will show up this year till Bethesda puts something out.
