  3. So how's the BioShock trilogy.

Thinking about picking it up, what did you guys think of it. Is it worth the money?
Also, are all the three games compatible with the Xbox360 controller?

Thanks for reading.

On sale, sure. I thought they were decent. But I am a sucker for dystopian themes.

I'm sure they're xbox controller compatible.

1: Very good.
2: Haven't played, supposedly good, but not as good as 1.
Infinite: Terrible. Horrible pacing, storywriting, characters, etc. Gameplay also isn't up to par.

They probably will work with a 360 controller, but I don't know why anyone would play these games with a controller when you can play them with the far superior mouse + keyboard combination.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

Bioshock and Bioshock: Infinite are awesome. The second one, not so much.

Like it matters to you. We all know you'll get it through other means.

This. First was a modern marvel for it's time. Very atmospheric and took risks to establish itself. 2, not as much but still a solid sequel. 3 was a "let's make a bunch of money before we blow up the studio" finale.

First one is alright, great atmosphere but bad gameplay and forgettable story. Infinite had equal atmosphere and better everything else. Haven't played 2 yet.

First one is pretty fantastic, a little predictable and with a terrible final boss, but it has many memorable moments and areas.

The second improves gameplay mechanics substantially while offering a slightly different story. There's no shoe-horned final boss, and there are more endings that aren't quite so black and white.

Infinite is a downgrade in terms of gameplay and level structure. It's very beautiful, and Elizabeth is an endearing character. The story has more than a couple holes in it, and the middle has quite a bit of filler.

Bioshock was great, if a bit clunky. Bioshock 2 has improved combat over the original, but that's about it. Bioshock Infinite has the worst combat in the series, but it's still my personal favorite because of the characters, setting, atmosphere and story.
