"BioShock." A first-person shooter turned morality play, a thinking person's action game, a piece of electronic fiction with a soul. There are many positive ways to describe this gripping game and they're all true.
Darn, I was hoping for Cod4. I haven't played bioshock, but I just don't know if I can play a game where you just go around beating little girls with wrenches.
There is no beating little girls with wrenches anywhere in the game. Although the little girl does screem "kill him" to her protector a lot, basically you only fight the "big daddy". Once the big daddy is down you have the option to save or not save (or just differently save depending on your philosophy of what little sisters are and your opinion of euthenashia). In any case the choice is a one button push and a short cutscene where no wrench beating takes place.
Great awards and winners. BioShock is definitly the best but for overrated, I'd go with SMG instead of Halo 3.
Agreed MK_Red, bubbles for you. Bioshock deserves some recognition. Although both games are hyped, it's a good thing for their parent console ( I love Halo 3 and SMG). I want to see Sony do the same thing for their big hitters. This way they will sell in the millions instead of 300K to 600K in the first 3 to 4 months. Nothing wrong with hype as long as you deliver!
Thanks, agreed and bubbles for you too. As for hype, there is indeed "Nothing wrong with hype as long as you deliver!" :)
I agree 100% that this is game of the year. I'd consider myself a "fanboy" of Sony, but when this game came out, I bought myself a used Xbox360. It was worth it. The experience was engrossing, amazing, refreshing; unlike anything I've ever played. I own all the big titles for the 360, Wii and PS3 but Bioshock left me the most satisfied. I applaud the makers of this game for giving us something so different and so special. It's a really ballsy move that paid off bit time.
Bubbles for you my fellow Sony fan and definitly agreed on BioShock. A true classic.
Once I started playing it, I couldn't stop--which is rare for me, as with kids I usually get in a few moments of Madden, etc. while I can, but I was engrossed with Bioshock. Kudos for Ken and his team-- hope it sells twice as much as they have to this point! gCM
Kudos indeed for Ken and his great team for making this masterpiece :)
Bioshock is a great game. A fresh experience, and a fun one at that. Well deserved. It's a classic that every 360 owner needs in their collection. I'm suprised Halo 3 didn't win this, Microsoft seems to have brainwashed everyone with that one.
bioshock has taken numerous GOTY awards already, kudos for them. MS must be quite happy about the exclusive as well.
yeah why dont they bring it to ps3 take 2 are just saying f^ck ps3 fans by this
Thats why they call them exclusives. These gaming devs are businesses they are out to make money. I know many feel fans fell loyal to one brand, but the same can not be said about companies. However, there are some devs that prefer a certain system due to money, dev tools, etc. Kojima/Konami are not saying screw MS by not releasing MGS on the 360, they are just honoring their agreement with Sony. Bottom line, if people want to play this game, they will either have to get the PC version, assuming their PC can run it, or get the other console the 360.
never now, never then, never will
