Storywise, with the extended cut, it wasn't the worst. I would've preferred an ending more like DA though

The Extended Cut only ruined the greatest story; the indoctrination theory. That story is my canon story, and no amount of stupid patchwork DLC can change that.

You can get the whole story here: social.bioware.com/forums/forum/1/topic/355/index/9727423/1
Basically a lot of the signs and apparent plot holes point towards Shepard having become indoctrinated and that the "final" scenes of ME3 were actually reaper-induced hallucinations.

The extended cut doesn't actually ruin that theory. They mention how Shepard waking up (something from the Extended Cut) actually reinforces it

Him waking up was before the Extended cut too. And I didn't see many changes for the Extended cut, mostly the fact that they picked up Shepard's teammates.

SO, if thats the case that his squad mates get picked up, why don't we go for the idea that he starts he hallucinations on the citadel. EVerything that he sees is happening, but Sheperd is perceiving it through the subtle gaze of Indoctrination. Thats why the Catalyst is so convincing and Sheperd doesn't agrue

The idea is that it started after Shepard was knocked out on the ground, also why his teammates originally just disappeared and reappeared later in the Normandy. After he gets knocked out, there are also strange bushes growing around where he's walking, similar to the bushes in his dreams, and his gun and outfit are different from what he was originally wearing.

I'm thinking more along the lines that the blast knocked him into the hallucination and when he wakes up (if you chose the right choice) is actually just after that blast. What happens there after is up to you. I like writing my own story in my mind when games short out like that. Also they were actually pressured by EA to finish the ending quickly, which explains why it feels so cheap and unlike the other quality Mass Effect stories.

The Last of Us. It was a really great game with an awesome gameplay and very detailed graphics (inb4 pc masterrace claims that any game looks better on PC, this console generation is nearly a decade old now, deal with it, jesus). Also, the story was very touching at some parts (e.g. the intro). The Ending was surprising at first, but you kinda see it coming, actually.

[HUGE ASS SPOILER, DON'T READ AFTER THIS PART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]
Joel acts selfish throughout half of the game as he senses that he has to ensure Ellie's and his own safety. In the end, he doesn't want to lose another girl who's grown to him as his daughter, so he lies to her to make her stay with him. Though I'm kinda sure that Ellie knows he's lying.
HUGE ASS SPILER END

That much is clear because bioshock infinite is a terrible game. It is carried by its narrative. Let me attempt to demonstrate.

1.Little weapon diversity and in higher difficulties no weapon diversity for the need to deal with patriots.
2.Little to no use for any of the plasmids (as they should be called) there is only use for like 1 out of the 4 of them.
3. Extremely poor corridor shooter with boring generic level architecture which is linear to the extreme. It cant even give the illusion of non linearity.
4. No impact on the story, no consequences, artificial difficulty, no means of playing the game other than just shooting people in the face.
I could go on but lets be honest who gives a ****.

The story and the voice acting carried the game, its a fun experience because of those aspects but its hardly one of the "greats". Games have gotten much more complex story telling than they had at their roots, but bioshock infinite is a more "classic" style of games being a medium akin to a movie. Here is the thing we have games, and we have movies and they do different things games are interactive I want to interact with things the world, the environment I want to feel like my existence as a Player has consequences in this world. Even if artificial make me feel like my choices have effects or if you cant do that make it some bad ass game play. In terms of "Great games" we have some pillars Emotional games like "Shadow of the Colossus" , truly engaging gameplay driven games like "Super Meat boy" or "Super Mario Brothers", Revolitionary games like "WoW" "Everquest" and "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare", and games which best blend together the experience of the player the story and the game play games which question player Agency like "Bioshock" and games like "Braid".

Bioshock infinite has craft but its hardly great. Its a Great story covered in Gloss.

I honestly enjoyed Bioshock Infinite for a couple reasons. The music, the atmosphere, and of course, the voice overs. At first glance, yes you could play the game with only two plasmids and a small selection of weapons. (My first playthrough I prefered using Shock Jokey/Bucking Bronco and Shotgun/Pistol) However on my second and third playthroughs (Trophy's) I ended up using more of the plasmids to change the gameplay up a bit. Playing around with Possession and the Devil's Tongue were quite fun. Set the group on fire, then possess one to slowly die and kill the rest.

The hallway firing was certainly an issue for me. Not only did they fail to provide cover in most situations, they penalized you for not using certain plasmids. (Bucking Bronco was a "Use this if you want to kill these guys effectively" plasmid when it came to hallways.)

Not having consequences was also a bit of a poor choice. It reminds me of Dues Ex: Human Revolution. You could shoot up each level and still choose any of the 5 endings even though the game is clearly stealth based.

The story I was against after I finished playing my first time around and took a break. That was mainly because I didn't really understand it, nor watched past the credits. After my second playthrough I really appreciated the story on a much higher level.

My person opinion/rating: I gave it a pretty poor rating at first, but I did come to enjoy it's features a bit more. It's definitely not a "play it once and you're done" kind of game. It takes several plays to truly let your creativity with the mechanics run wild. Which I think they were trying to do. (Look at Bioshock 1. You could easily play the game just using only a couple of plasmids.) However, I will say it was better than BS2 by far, however it still is in the shadow of Bioshock 1. In the end, I gave it a 7/10, and I suggest it if people are looking for a game to rent. I certainly wouldn't buy it though.

You know, a game's merit isn't just based on things that you want. I'm a very visual person. The feeling of being in the sky, and in the setting of a time period that i'm not accustomed to? That's very intriguing to me. Not to mention they tied in some physics stuff and that made me love it, and I loved bioshock 1. So obviously you're not going to like it as much as me. I've waited years for bioshock infinite to come out and I loved it. You probably played it once "just to see what all the fuss was about" and didn't get as connected to the characters as me.

I am a student of science and an avid gamer i assure you i gave it a very good chance. Its a pretty game, it has a good story and good voice work, 2 of those come with being AAA the story is truly the strongest component. I will make a case for Bioshock 1 being the best game, I don't think it is but it has a strong case for it.

In games we use what is termed Player Agency that is that We the player have impact on the game and the story etc etc. This concept is in stark contradiction to games being structured as they are both by the limits imposed upon us by developers/directors/producers as well as tech limitations. As players we have come to accept that that we have Agency but its limited its basically an unstated rule of games. What Bioshock did is blend together the rules of Player agency into the story (SPOILERS) that we were being manipulated via that famous phrase into doing the actions we were limited to as players. It wasnt just a limitation put on us the player, it was put on him the character, he had no choice thus We as players had no choice. Its a beautify crafted game concept. It works because throughout the game both the player and the character think of them selves having free will, but in reality BOTH of us do not we as players feel as powerless as Jack does. That is a deep and complex understanding of the role of medium and user that not many games touch on. Bioshock Infinite on the other hand is a good story in the same way a book might be that we want to see the result of the book but in the end it doesnt matter if we read the book at all, the end page has the same writing on it.

That's why, for me, Bioshock 1 will remain forever, the best game I have ever played. It not only constructed for us an awe inspiring world with the most beautiful and most hideous of man all displayed in one place, it also twisted the experience of playing a game into the game playing you. It lead you to a specific point and then told you that it was doing it. I have never been more dumbfounded in my entire life than when Ryan first told me what was happening.

Bioshock is a gaming masterpiece that I will NEVER forget.

Yeah I agree "bioshock 1" was incredable its one of my favorites but its not what I would argue that it is the "greatest". In my opinion "Braid" is the greatest game ever made, but even it is not my favorite but then neither is "Bioshock" though they fill in my second and third picks respectively. My personal favorite is "Shadow of the Colossus" and I would urge you to play it. It speaks to me on an emotional level which is really astounding considering that there basically no dialogue and nearly no story. Its truly a master piece considering the whole game is just 16 boss fights. If you haven't played it its truly great you as a player you start to get really emotional if you take a minute to think about what your doing. Here is this bleak landscape and the only life around apart from you and Argo are these Massive--Truly massive, Colossus which you slowly climb and kill. You start to question why your killing these if its really worth it. After riding Argo through this empty dead world for 15 minutes you come upon a massive peaceful giant which you brutally try to kill. It lacks most things we think are necessary for a game, no trash mobs, no item pickups, no skill tree, no level ups, nothing its really games best example of minimalism. I personally feel it takes incredible craft to be moved as a player with the dev using so few of the standard tools most games rely on.

I think I just might have to buy this. Sounds very interesting. I've always preferred games that actually challenge the player on a different level and art is always interesting too. Thanks for the recommendation.

Braid is PC or xbox, Shadow of the Colossus is originally Ps2 but I would recommend the Ps3 copy as it fixes some of the issues of FPS drops that the ps2 version had. I wish i could tell you about how there are Iso copies available on some sites and there are emulators for ps2 so you could play it on pc. But that is illegal and I wouldnt want to recommend something that could get you in trouble that would make me a bad friend.

So hypothetically speaking one could acquire an emulator to hypothetically download this game and, of course, hypothetically play the games? I'll look into it.

Well hypothetically speaking one would download Pcsx2 from their site, then that person would go to a ROM hosting site and barrow their copy of Shadow of the Colossus which that individual would put on some digital drive like say Alcohol 52 / 120. Such a person would be happy to know that they could bind their keys to either keyboard or a controller hooked up to their computer. I would mention to such a person that it takes a lot of CPU to run emulators and to watch out about overheating but these are just things i have read, I couldn't verify their accuracy in the least from personal experience to be sure.

Bioshock 1 was previously my favorite game. I've played bioshock 2 but only once, and i've already had a conversation with people on fj and they got me to want to play it again, i guess if you play it as many times as i played bioshock one it's actually very good.
