DISCUSSION

From everything I've seen so far of this game I'm probably going to end up pretending that it doesn't exist. To me, Bioshock was in a different league then a lot of other games. It's environment, the detail, the plot, everything about it was nearly perfect. It's not a "game" in a "game sense", its not about multiplayer and wracking up kills and blowing shit up with fancy weapons. It focused on exploration, creepy narrative and some subtle themes. I'm a huge fan of the game but was burnt out just on the first play through. It's one of "those". A "There Will Be Blood" if you will. Great movie, but it's one you watch once every year or two.

To me, making a sequel to this game is the equivalent of making a sequel to something like the Wizard of Oz, you just don't do it. If you do, why revisit the exact same world all over again? It already looks done. #bioshock2
