I think the hype for Bioshock Infinite is so ubiquitous it's just understood.
What hype? Everyone hates Bioshock 1 and Bioshock 2 even more. People are interested in Tomb Raider and Dead Space, the hell with bioshock.
I consider this sad because irrational is such a talented dev. People be stupid.
Yes all I see is people hating the game and calling it overrated. I think it's because the game contains a very complex story with very abstract metaphors that most gamers just don't give a crap about. They just want instant gratification, aka shoot enemy in face with shotgun.
