Is Bioshock Infinite worth getting if I can't stand FPS games?

Some people hate FPS games because looking at them gives them head aches after a few minutes/ an hour or two, not because they actually hate the gameplay.

But if you genuinely hate FPS style gameplay then why bother. Though they're vastly different, I guess at the end of the day they still are point and shoot. Some people aren't down for that

Portal 2 isn't a FPS. It's a puzzle game.
The only thing it has in common with FPS is the forced first person.

Is it just me or is this board getting worse and worse everyday? What kind of question is that TC?

Doesn't seem like such a weird question to me. Maybe "hate" was too strong a word but I definitely see where TC is coming from.

FPS are easily my least favorite type of game. I generally find them mind-numblingly boring and if you've played one, you've played them all. Of course there are exceptions. I think TC just wants to know if Bioshock Infinite is one of those exceptions.

I read a funny review the other day that said the FPS segments actually were the distraction to the rest of the game. Made me more interested in playing it someday.

perhaps this standard form categorical syllogism will help if you are having trouble

all fps are bad
bioshock infinite is a fps
therefore bioshock infinite is bad

Infinite is an average fps with a story that will rape your brain for a couple of days. I never liked FPS but the story somehow managed to clinch me until the end.

If you absolutely loathe FPS, don't play Infinite as there are better mind boggling games out there.

I will list some (most are VN's and puzzle games and not on ps3):

- Ever 17 -out of infinity-
- Zero Escape
- Silent Hill 2
- Devil on G-string
-Remember 11
-Portal
-Dream Diary
-Cthulu

You may have a hard time finding this, but the experience is so much f***** worth it
