    It's meant to be ambiguous.

    I feel really bad for this, but I literally just beat the first game for the first time ever ten minutes ago. The final boss was anticlimactic. But the good ending did move me a bit. I don't know when I'll get started on the second one, though I'll probably skip it (like many people keep telling me to do) and go straight to Infinite, eventually, and treat 2 as a side game.

    The second one has some worthy moments, but to me, it just doesn't have the same effect that the first had.

    After some re-analysis, I'd say the first game gets less enjoyable and generally worse after the reveal that     Spoiler:- SPOILERS FOR A SIX-YEAR-OLD GAME LOLOLOLOLOLOL:

    The game itself is plenty deep, certainly more so than most things around these days - not that that in itself says a lot but still.

    Really? It hardly even felt like escorting. Elizabeth wasn't even in the way during combat. I thought she added to it.

    Yeah: Elizabeth escorting you through the game, as some fans have already started saying.

    In all seriousness, no the game is not one long escort mission - Elizabeth is a companion you don't have to protect and who provides you with items through the game.

    I'll be disappointed if BioShock Infinite ends up being my GOTY. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic game so far. But it's only March. I'm hoping for something as surprising as The Walking Dead was last year.

    I wouldn't be - I can understand feeling let down if the quality of 2013 games peaked in March, but... come on Infinite is an incredible game!

    Personally, aside from absolutely loving Infinite, I think it'll be GotY simply because there's nothing left to be released this year that I think you can say for sure will be able to challenge it - Last of Us doesn't seem like anything special, likewise Watch Dogs, Dark Souls II will have to do more than just be a repeat of Dark Souls to get GotY, Splinter Cell's got a lot working against it, CoD... well we know they'll release one but it's not gonna be a trend setter, and Destiny seems to be shaping up as a 2014 release.

    I beat Infinite a couple days ago, and all I have to say is wow. That game is a work of art.

    I really want to play Infinite and my friend bought me a copy for my birthday. However, I have yet to beat the original as it's been sitting on my backlog incomplete. Guess I'm stuck waiting.

    Well Infinite isn't a direct sequel to the original or the second so you could just jump straight into it...

    I finally got and beat Infinite.

        Spoiler:- ending:


    Really, my only problems with the game were a. the lack of a manual save function, b. that in some places the bloom was very intense, and c. that the last combat portion of the game has you defending the core.

    What a game...one of top 5 favorites. Just beat it the other day.
    "We are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven. That which we are, we are. One equal temper of heroic hearts. Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

    the ending of infinite felt too inspired by mirai nikki. bioshock was okay though.

    ❝i have a craving.

    a craving for something scrumptious.
    a human heart, perhaps. yours.
