Should I buy BioShock Infinite?

BioShock Infinite is a fantastic achievement, there’s no real doubt about that, and as review scores roll in around the 90′s and 100′s, journalists are adamant that this is a product worth putting your money down on. One magazine, Gameplanet, said “BioShock is the most important new intellectual property of this hardware generation.” BioShock is most certainly not the most important new(?) intellectual property of this hardware generation (it uses old technology and hasn’t really revolutionized storytelling in games, it’s merely a good example of it) but it is a highly polished, and incredibly detailed gaming experience.

Personally I find that any game worth 60 dollars isn't worth it, unless it's a collector edition of some kind.

Capt-FuzzyPants1877d ago

If it's worth $60 then how is it not worth it? Your statement contradicts itself.

But anyway, I had no intention of buying it until my friend begged me too. And I'm glad he did. I'm not finished or all that far into it, but the characters seem to be growing into relatable characters that I can care for. It is very well written and presented very well too.

What I meant to say was that if any game that cost a total of 60 dollar isn't worth it. Also, I'm happy for you and stuff, but like I said before,I don't believe any game is worth 60 dollars, the asking price is far too much.

How dare you have zero intentions to buy it pre-release!!! You should be like this for EVERY Bioshock game:

Ya.... no. I have better things to do with my time and with my money.

I never, EVER pay the full $60 retail price for a game. I can usually find some kind of discount more or less for a game, new or used, if I deal hunt a little bit (at Slickdeals or CAG, for example). I think people that pay the full $60 for any game aren't being smart with their cash (unless they're rich, in which case $60 won't matter too much).

Renting a game to beat it (especially an ~8-hour game) would be smarter even if I can't find a discount on a particular title.

Hell, Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3 only came out recently, and a few weeks later they could be had for $20 to $30.

Good for you... But I wasnt actually talking to you which is why I didnt put @Murad at the beginning of my comment to show it was directed at you OR actually reply to your comment rather than someone else's.

"I have better things to do with my time"

You've just made it obvious that you really dont...

I've redboxed it and beat it in a couple days. Great game, but low relayability so I'd wait till its 25 or so to buy

i'll answer this the way others have answered. If you loved bioshock this game is very much a buy. It is short on the length side and there is no real incentive to play it once you beat it.

Linear hallway shooter, save your money

PhantomTommy1877d ago

Bioshock was a linear hallway shooter. The Half-Life games are linear hallway shooters. These games are all awesome, so is Infinite, buy it.

If you love great games, yes, yes you should buy it. I'm not a big fps fan myself but bs is an exception. Although if you can't afford it at the moment, I'm sure amazon will have a sale on it soon. They always do. Far cry 3 is already $30 when it was $60 just in November brand new for example.
