Apparently the Bioshock games are pretty good?

infinite>1>2


but dont play infinite without playing 1. i mean damn, there's an entire part at the end that connects the two, not to mention the recent story DLC

You should play BS1 before BS3 or the ending to BS3 will make even less sense. BS2 is optional.

I thought Infinite was the least interesting of the Bioshock series, to be honest. It started out great, but then just becomes a bland retread of the same gameplay from the previous games.

The first one was excellent at the time, but hasn't aged that well. Still worth a play.

Infinite is great, although some aspects are a little more dumbed down.


By "some" did you mean "literally every single way"?

Have you even played it recently? Right after playing Infinite the mechanics felt awful.

No, if I said that the sentence would be a grammatical mess and become nearly incomprehensible.

"Although literally every single way aspects are a little more dumbed down".

I don't know why you think that would be a better choice.

You're arguing semantics rather than refuting his point. The sentence can be reconstructed to make grammatical sense.

There isn't a single aspect of Infinite (other than its plot, which is flawed due to developers having a poor understanding of time travel and the infinite worlds theory) that isn't less complex than its predecessors.

Partially regenerating health.
Two weapon cap.
Most of the guns feel the same.
Like Plasmids, a lot of the Vigors feel the same.
No concept like ADAM management.
Invincible companion that gives you health, salts, and ammo whenever you need it, and often times when you don't.
No permanent hacking.
No research.
<strike>No tonics or anything similar.</strike> I forgot about the equipment, but it's arguably less complex than gene tonics since you don't have to worry about slots.
Handymen were few and far between, and a poor substitute for Big Daddies.
Levels were FAR more linear.
They didn't do anything interesting with the sky rail system, which I felt had a lot of potential.
Lack of choices; all choices are just binary button presses that have no significance on anything. Particularly the carnival scene where you choose who to throw the ball at. It's a FPS, and they didn't feel we could use the controls to throw a ball.

I think the semantics were his whole point, he's a picky guy.

Most people don't hate it. They just consider it a disappointment because it took several steps backwards from its predecessors and several steps towards CoD.
