How BioShock Infinite renewed my faith in gaming

Metro - I was quite literally on the verge of throwing in the proverbial towel with regard to gaming in general. The seemingly endless deluge of identikit shooters and uninspired yearly updates had chipped away what little remained of my patience in a medium I once would have defended fiercely against any accusation of juvenility or shallowness. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

You cannot include quotes such as "seemingly endless deluge of identikit shooters and uninspired yearly updates" and then praise this game's gameplay mechanics!!!!!!

In less than a year this wave of unwarranted hype is going to recede and then come back as a tsunami of hate due to the overpraise this game gets. Mark the story and voice acting and presentation 10/10, I'm with you. The gameplay is no different than any of your identikit shooters, perhaps even worse.

Without a doubt I love this game, but I agree. Gamers are circlejerking over the very things they have ridiculed other titles for.

Very boring and stupid. No comparison with Bioshock and sure SS2. Very weak gameplay, no hacking, no tactics, nothing! Just railshooter. All money was spent to bribe critics. http://billywritings.blogsp...

i know i will get alot of disagrees now, lol
