That’s What She Said: Goodbye Booker DeWitt

Quote: "And then this past week happened. I think lots of people cried inside, and lots of people cried for real. In Irrational Games’ honour, I played BioShock and Burial At Sea Ep.1 for most of my weekend. The point, and we learnt this with Mass Effect, is that as gamers, we are not entitled to certain expectations. Sure we have them, and sometimes it’s reasonable for us to have them, but ultimately a studio has the say with what they want to do with a title. Creatively, or more harrowing, whether or not it continues and how it does. Personally, as sad as I am about BioShock in the way that I have come to love it not really existing beyond Burial At Sea Ep. 2, I can respect the decision of someone who could very easily have created a yearly franchise from this (think of series like Assassins Creed and God of War which should have ended a long time ago) and made buckets of money deciding that a project, an idea, a vision as it was imagined had achieved what it was intended to and that the time had come to move on. I do respect that, and that there is a finite body of work on which BioShock can be appreciated. " (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
