Pitching Bioshock - "just another f**king PC FPS"

According to senior designer Joe McDonagh many publishers turned their noses up at the title when it was initially being pitched around.

Speaking to CVG about his role in its conception and development, McDonagh said, "Bioshock was a long time in the making. Ever since System Shock II the team had talked about everything they wished they'd done differently."

Ken (Levine) spent years pitching the game to publishers but no one was interested, incredible as that seems now.

Some stuff on paper may be to general, but the thing that bothers me that even the creators of System Shock had a problem pitching it.I would look more in too the developers past.

The angels sang out
In an immaculate chorus
As down from the heavens
Descended Chuck Norris

Who delivered a kick
That could shatter bones
Into the crotch
Of Indiana Jones.

I think some people here might recognise that...

I think its hilarious.

Bioshock is the first fps that really offers something new since Half-Life 1.
Bioshock is so much more than pure FPS, it's a game that totally gets you and won't let go until you have finished it, maybe not even then.

I am happy they made it.

It's a thinking man's FPS.
