Sequel Showdown: Bioshock vs. Bioshock Infinite

The industry is still reeling from the recent announcement that Irrational Games will cease to exist as we now know them. The majority of the staff has been let go, and the few that remain will join Ken Levine's new team with a focus on small narrative driven games.

He is saying Bioshock 1 is not a sequel, therefore it cannot be a sequel showdown because only Infinite is a sequel. If it were a true sequel showdown it would have to be between Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite. The article isn't named all that well.

Personally, I think BioShock 2 is the best game in the series, but whatever.

When it comes to gameplay, I completely agree with you.

I really didn't find Infinite all that interesting, only got about halfway through it. Now Bioshock on the other hand...

I agree. Struggling to finish infinite. Bioshock 1 was much better.

bioshock 1 is one of my favourite games of last generation. there was no way infinite was going to live up to it in my eyes.
