BioShock 10 years old!!

Recommended Posts

Bloody hell!

 

Where has the time gone?

 

I remember picking it up day 1 along with my Surround sound system( a £99 all in one jobby from Argos but it had good reviews and for the size of room I was playing in it did the job)

 

So along with it looking awesome I could hear the splicers creeping around behind me, the creepy little sisters and all the ambient sounds. It was fucking awesome.

 

I've only ever finished it once and mean to go back to it again at some point I have the "remastered" editions on PC so it'll look (slightly) better.

 

It certainly showed what that generation was capable of and in my opinion still holds up as one of the best games last gen.

Yeah, the game was an absolute revelation in 2007, but I'd never replay it. The twist still seems too fresh and the old A to B gameplay tropes would grate these days.

I seem to remember joining here not long after Bioshock came out so it must be nearly ten years you lot have put up with me.

 

This is one of the few games that had me thinking about it while I was at work, 24hrs a day it was just in my head. I loved every second and have basically found it impossible to replay. I've been tempted by the polished versions but getting through the first few sections just put me off whenever I went back to it.

 

I seem to remember there being about 5 different threads on here about it when I joined.

Prey's worth a play if you're pining for something similar. The story isn't as good and the world's not as memorable but in terms of the actual level design and depth, it's easily the best/most modern playable of the System Shock/Deus Ex inspired games.
