GameByte writers: "It's 2021, we're mid-pandemic and if I'm going to die on a hill, I'd like it to be this one: BioShock Infinite is good, actually."
Loved Bioshock. Miss Bioshock,
Loved all the Bioshock games.
Would you kindly make another, Ken?
Just d/l all three on the Switch last week for $20
Why am I getting a disagree? It's the truth
Hell yes.. I own the BioShock Collection for PS4 and Switch. Amazing on both. Can't wait to see how the 4th game turns out!
Yes it has awesome moment to moment gameplay. Really enjoyed it but the last boss was kind of tedious
Wasn't it always good? What's this ACTUALLY stuff?
lmao yeah wtf is this opinion
Guessing it’s an American who wrote the title.
That opinion is almost as dumb as the article. The game is literally made by an American and sold the most in America.
I’m part of the school that thinks this game is not all its cracked up to be. I think its degenerative in terms of gameplay, fewer choices both in terms of narrative and in the gameplay loop. The shooting and encounters just dont feel satisfying, and thats 90% of what youre doing. It lacks a great character like andrew ryan, Comstock is a generic villain without much personality. Elizabeth has an interesting backstory, but is just made to be likeable, which isnt interesting. The world building is worse than Bioshock 1. Part of the problems is that the interviews and trailers built up a game that never delivered on its promises. There are no long term consequences for your actions as promised. The one thing i’ll definitely give it, is it was weirdly prophetic on its politics. The game is very nihilistic, the only thing it says is that political extremes and opportunism (left or right) inevitably lead to failure. Feeling that rn lol
If you think comstock is a generic villain.. dude did you even finish the game
@fewdsnkmemes He is. Yes i know there is a plot twist, but just because Comstock is Booker doesn’t make him a compelling villain. The problem with the twist redeeming the game is that the twist falls apart under its own logic. Why does killing Booker in this one instance kill off Comstock in all the other timelines? I finished the game and initially liked the story as a whole, but the more i thought about it the less sense it made. Even so, it doesnt make up for the glaring gameplay issues. The plasmids suck compared to 1+2, the skylines dont reach full potential, the two weapon limit sucks, they repeat the Lady Comstock fight (which already sucks) 3 times.
It was a good game but there were things that bothered me from a narrative perspective. 1st was the forced baptism really bothered me at the beginning. Second was gamebreaking narrative that ripped me out of the experience and I had to give it a few days to go back: being in the transport with the woman in the nurse uniform. I unloaded clip after clip into her... she's invulnerable. I hit her with weapons and everything I had. Completely and totally invulnerable. I didn't trust her, I knew she was going to do something. I start up the transport and she smashes a molotov on her head and crashes the transport?! WTF? How? I just spent 5 minutes trying to decapitate her.
You're comparing it to your own imposed expectations though, which isn't being objective. How many games were there that even had the qualities of this game? During that generation the only real mature games/franchises were Mass effect, Last of Us, GTA I guess? Bioshock was an ambitious franchise and Infinite was an ambitious game that also had great gameplay.
It was my least favorite of the Bioshock games, but still an excellent game IMHO. I'd give it an 8 while the others were 9's in my book. Very much a matter of personal opinion. It was generally very well received and liked by most.
Must be clickbait day.
*walks to the hill everyone was already standing on* Yeah, I’ll die on this one.
dude's just retarded. carry on.
Exactly what I was thinking. The game got very good reviews and was well received.
Everyone has their own taste, but why is yours bad?
Why are you acting like this is an unpopular opinion? it's one of the highest rated games of all time bro, currently sitting in the mid 90% on metacritic, and I remember hearing nothing but praise when it was released.
Best Bioshock game and that is not easy considering the series was great
Wasn't a fan of Infinite. Loved the first one though.
Loved all 3 equally but the ending of 3 left me speechless. The DLC was also beyond amazing.
I really enjoyed Infinite and would definitely rate it as a >90 game. But I also dont think it holds a candle to the atmosphere created by the first game. That said, anyone who claims it "isn't even good" - is likely trolling or hating without having played it.
insert "always has been" meme and pull the damn trigger
Way too much hand holding. Its aesthetic and presentation are wonderful though.
When was it NOT good LMFAO
The middle portion of Infinite kinda dragged on, but otherwise it was an amazing experience.
Actually currently replaying the collection all three are amazing games.
I mean who said it wasn't? A little different from the first two, but I enjoyed Infinite more than part 2. Not as good as the original, but still worth a playthrough.
Yeah...we knew that.
Ah yes, the critically acclaimed Bioshock Infinite which won numerous awards and is sitting at at 94% rating on Metacritic is ACTUALLY good! Why is this presented like it's not already the consensus? I've got no issue with reminding people that a great game exists, and getting newer folks to check it out. But it's clearly and widely agreed to be a good game. This title is odd. Also go play Bioshock Infinite it's a crazy fun time.
Nobody said it wasn't
Actually good really that's it? I played the hell out of this game this is my favorite entry in Bioshock Elizabeth is a great character the city in the sky was a great idea. I love all the Bioshocks but this one I like the most I can't wait to see where Bioshock 4 goes from here.
Who said it wasn’t? All the bioshock games to date have been badass. Hope to see more in the future.
Was great until the second half. Unfortunate there were many cuts from what we've seen from all those previews but perhaps it was too ambitious so it was kinda understandable.
It was too held back. The vision is there. I wish they could go back and make what was truly intended for it. I like mostly all but the generic fps gameplay which was way too limiting compared to the first two games.
I played it in the collection a few weeks ago. It was good, but not quite as good as I remembered. I'd still give it an 8.5 or 9/10. I had no idea it wasn't thought of as great.
It would look and play even better if you remaster it on the PS5.
Hell yes.. Love the ending
1 and 3 were amazing. 2 was disappointing
Who said it wasn’t?

I think I'm 25% through the game on max difficulty. I do use the DLC perks. I reload checkpoints if I ever die like a wuss instead of taking advantage of the infinite respawns. Bioshock Infinite is even more spectacular than the first. Top tier creative direction.
Yes it is!
I think Infinite was roundly praised by critics and gamers alike when it came out, saying it's good is not risking dying on a hill at all.
Amazing ending to a legendary series. The sound effects and design in this game are on another level, I can still hear the vendor voice and turret alarms. So good!
First two was good, couldn't get into 3/Infinite at all, especially with that overwhelming bloom effect making me dizzy.
Hot take - a game with a 94% Metacritic score is good.
When you travel to Columbia for the first time, and the voice in the ship says, "Ascension, Ascension, Ascension,...," You then break through the clouds after a while, the voice then chimes, "Hallelujah!" while being greeted with the view of Columbia for the first time. That scene, both visually and auditory, sent chills down my spine. A combination of fear and awe, wonder and apprehension. They nailed a unique vibe unlike many games before and after. I still vividly remember this scene many years later. It left an impact on me.
A critically acclaimed game is actually good? What a surprise.
I love the plot twists associated with them. I can also say, one of my fav parts is from the original where an NPC is angrily knocking, the door explodes, and his head rolls down the stairs. The game was ahead of its time where the AI was actually really good (set a person on fire and watch them run to water to put it out)
