Is 'Bioshock' the best game of 2007?

By John Ryan

"Go out right now and get a copy of "BioShock.

"No, I mean it. Stop reading. Go to the store and get 2K Games' new M-rated shooter/survival horror/adventure/RPG title for Xbox 360 and PC. If you love gaming, if you think gaming can be a form of art, if you like your digital entertainment to be smart, stylish and suspenseful, "BioShock" is for you. It's also a serious Game of the Year candidate.

"Why? Because "Bioshock" combines several genres with amazing results. Then there's the smooth gameplay, mixed with gorgeous graphics and some of the best sound direction in ages. What's more, "BioShock" brings with it a fresh energy and intelligence from the opening moments to the ending."

At least be specific and put down some cogent reasons, otherwise your opinion will be discounted (and/or ignored) as either a pre-pubescent fanboy or that you have nothing intelligent to say. gCM

No way, yep.

Best marketing hype? Yep.

Most overhyped game of 2007? Maybe, that turd Halo 3 probably edges it out.

It's nice to see the game bombing in sales putting gamers through a bunch of pointless hype for an otherwise mediocre title.

This story is not a duplicate, it is MSNBC's review which was posted today.

Yeah, this isn't a duplicate. There are similar stories, but they're not the same.

When halo 3, uncharted drake's fortune, Heavenly Sword, R&C TOD, mass effect, ut3, dark sector, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Brothers Brawl, and MP3 haven't come out?

BaMYouRDeaD6176d ago

Yeah, I forgot about Super Mario Galaxy. Knowing the hype behind Halo 3 though, I'm guessing that'll take game of the year. But ever since I got Bioshock yesterday, I've been hooked. I wouldn't be surprised at all if it got game of the year.

unless Mass Effect has an awesome story (seems unlikely from reading first part of the prequel, it will still be fun) Bioshock will be overall game of the year. IMO the only game that could have given it competition is MGS4(its the last one, there is no way Kojima will mess it up).

ShiftyLookingCow6175d ago

I should have said my game of the year, obviously its my personal preference. Yeah Halo 3, Mario and Metroid Prime will be serious contenders too.
