Games you should play more than once to fully understand

GF365: "Certain games cannot be understood with just one playthrough. Like certain films and books – such as Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment – there are complex games that you should play more than once to fully understand. I thoroughly believe that video games are an art form, and the entries on this list are prime examples of modern art."

I agree with bioshock infinite.

The way I went through Infinite made me kinda dislike the game (Not a good idea playing a narrative-driven game sporadically in short bursts over the course of a year...)

Having not played 2 yet myself, would you recommend a playthrough of 2 first or a replay of Infinite?

You can’t go wrong either way imo. They are all standalone games that are tied together by nuance. Infinite really takes a couple playthrough to fully appreciate though. Weird paradoxes etc. There is a lot going on.

Infinites story jumps everywhere so taking a year to play it I can see why you felt that way. A fair shake is definitely deserved if you like weird stories and philosophy. 2 does not need to be played to understand infinite but they play nothing alike. I personally think 2 has the better gameplay.

2 is a direct continuation of 1 so it has a similar playstyle. It’s bioshock 1 with upgrades like using a plasmid and a gun at the same time. The story is good but not as “twisty” as 1 or infinite. It’s straight forward and to the point. I turned off the “Helmet view” in the options and had a much better experience. You play as a big daddy so the comers look like you are wearing one of those diver helmets.

I never got to play Spec Ops and I have had it for years. I'm gonna finally try it

I would say under appreciated/skipped by many gamers when it released 10(?) years ago. The shelves were full of other third person shooters with a heavily influenced story at the time. I completed it 5 years ago and it wasn’t a hard cleanup for a platinum trophy either. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it today
