How The Bioshock Games Were The Perfect Bookends For This Gaming Generation

UM writes: When I played the first Bioshock game, I got chills. I had never experienced a game like that. And yes, I did play System Shock 2. But Bioshock had something different. Maybe it was the perfect audio design. Or the way Rapture was truly a world that we all wanted to be a part of, even though we knew that Hell it became. Maybe it was the narrative that pulled me in and didn’t let go until I was laying exhausted, on the floor. The reality here is it was a perfect storm of all those things. A game that was, to me, pitch perfect. And somehow, they did it again, all those years later, as I got swept up in the recent tsunami that was Bioshock Infinite. Could there be a more fitting way for us to have ushered in, and to see out, the current generation of gaming? I, for one, think not. (BioShock, BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I was late to the Bioshock party, but I definitely see what this article is getting at. So much of what has been great about this generation is summarised in one - or both - of these fantastic games!

I loved Bioshock (especially the first one), but for me the perfect bookends for the generation are Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and The Last Of Us.

Both undoubtedly seminal moments in gaming, but for me TLOU in particular demonstrates how far we've come in that time even with the same system architecture.
