    It did me. Especially since you said, the other being Boarderlands. Then I thought, maybe you just meant actually finished.

    I think the actual phrase, to me anyway, would be "I've played a game or two in my time/life"

    Ok, so I should rephrase my first post then. I was in the process of re-phrasing when you posted andy :p

    I've played a lot of games but this game is in my top 2, the other being Borderlands.

    We are being caught up in semantics, it's a freakin' good game is all I was saying with emphasis on where it rates on my scale of games I've played. My folly was obviously using a colloquialism.

    there's a clip going on youtube from bioshock where you enter a theatre and you see a guy playing on the piano and sander cohen on a speaker directing on how to play the piano

    and from 0:14 and on you can faintly hear screams of what is possibly song bird. http://youtu.be/qpmvkZ6TIMk

    so it seems that when infinite arrives into rapture through the tear it takes them to time as Bioshock is taking place.

    but it's all just conjecture

    You can see a big daddy in the background with a little sister after that scene.

    1. Agree
    2. Well the theory is that this was before the split, everything up to there was a constant, but it's really an area of interpretation.
    3. Because they wanted to get revenge on Comstock after he had them killed.
    4. They didn't care about Booker initially, he was simply one of infinite versions, they had more important ulterior motives.
    5. She read, a lot, as stated throughout the game.
    6. She did leave, but always wanted to come back because she was content (as explained in the game).
    7. Because part of her was in one universe, another part in another.
    8. Probably because he was confused and intrigued and didn't realise the danger.
    9. They did, the world knew about it.
    10. Because she became a bitter replacement to Comstock after Booker failed to save her, the power got to her. As for why NY? Because America is the only important country in the world (lol).
    11. Dunno, would ruin a good story.
    12. Don't think anyone would be thinking straight, they did realise eventually.
    13. lol
    14. Fair point, might be an explanation somewhere.
    15. Yeah the gunplay needed some work and originality
    16. Gameplay choice, I preferred that you only had 2 weapons, it required you to be smarter about weapon choice.
    17. because it suited the gameplay, there will always be holes like those to service the games requirements.
    18. True
    19. Lazy
    20. Lazy
    21. because it worked, and she has a vagina.

    Ok, pushed through and made it to the end. Gives a whole new meaning to the term "on-rails" shooter. :p

    Incredibly overrated ending. Overrated game in general.

    It wasn't bad, but I would give it 8/10 at best.

    The combat was mediocre. By the end of it I was just sick of the scripted battle sequences and wanted to finish the story.

    Plot was very decent, good character development. However I found myself not feeling anything for myself, the main character, as well as the songbird who was seemingly thrown in as a plot device.

    I won't be thinking about this game in 5 years, and there is no way in hell it competes with Bioshock 1.

    I'd have to agree. The combat was tedious with virtually no variety. The plasmids/vigors were more interesting in bioshock1 (some were downright useless, like the charging ram thing). It was the better game over bioshock 2 but I felt all these raving reviews completely overlooked the fact that a game should have actual gameplay. I mean I read one claiming it was 'better' than system shock 2?... really?

    On the money. The game was simply good, there was nothing particularly noteworthy about it (except it not being as good as Bioshock in nearly every way)
