Bioshock 2 was ok but it couldn't get out of bioshock 1's shadow. There was just something... lacking in it... maybe it was because the sheen of rapture had faded in my eyes, it was no longer new and exciting... *sigh*
Bioshock 1 was also great but....I found its gameplay repetitive. Search aimlessly for some items then go back to the place is okay, but not for so much of the game. The hacking was really annoying too. Bioshock 2 improved a lot of things. I also liked Sinclair a whole lot. Yeah, the Bioshock 1 story is better, but (other than Cohen) I prefer the Bioshock 2 characters. I love Delta and Eleanor and Sofia and their relationships with each other. I felt more invested in the story. BS2 also gave me a sense of panic and urgency, I really cared for Eleanor.
Plus, the entire be a little sister and make Eleanor a big sister was AMAZINGGG. That part stood out to me. In Bioshock 1...nothing really stood out to me except things that were kinda strange, like the...bees. and killing Ryan with a golf club.
They are both great games but, Bioshock 2 left a much bigger impression on me. From what I heard its a "love it or hate it" kinda thing. Im a lover! :>
Ok i admit BS2 was good but there was one nagging thought in my head that prevented me from caring about Eleanor; her love for delta is mental conditioning, not because they spent time together doing things together. You know aside from harvesting bodily fluids from corpses which again was more brainwashing. But if you got something from it that's great I just didn't.
Its nice having conversations like this that don't devolve into hateful shouting thanks.
Yeah of course! I love bioshock and am interested in what people thought of the games! I just want to live together with her and Sofia and become a happy family (not really that would fail) [link] that pic I drew sums up my feelings for the game LOL
The originals weren't flawless. I loved the first Bioshock even put it up at one of my number one picks but it had its problems I also felt like the second one didn't feel like the true predecessor of Bioshock narrative wise. Infinite is a continuation in the sense it has the same strong focus on story and same spirit as the first Bioshock at least inmho.
I can't think of any way the first could be any better (given the technology at the time, of course; hypothetically it may have had better graphics). The second didn't exactly follow the narrative, but that's what made it great; Jack's story was done, there was no reason to continue it. Delta's story was a better thing to focus on. Still, I think I preferred the first.
