I want to open up this thread into a new direction now (can I do that?) Which Bioshock game is the best? Mine obviously is Infinite for the reason I've expressed strongly on this site. Bioshock 1 is a great game. It's atmosphere is nothing like I've ever experienced, looting for everything for survival, not knowing when an splicer or Big Daddy would show up. Bioshock 2 also had this to a degree but at the end of the game you have so many resources that it becomes a regular FPS.
I'll admit that Infinite doesn't have a proper Big Daddy equivalent (Songbird aside). I think Handyman was meant to be that but I was never scared of him, even in 1999 mode, but every time I saw a Big Daddy I was like "Oh sh!t. How do I take him down?"
But I actually forgot the story in the first. I thought one of the plot twists were that Andrew Ryan was Atlas. (Stupid mind). I went in Bioshock 1 not knowing its emphasis was on story so I wasn't really paying attention to it. Whereas I went into Infinite knowing more about it than I did with the o.g
Another point I've seen people make on the interwebs is that the Splicers are better enemies then the ones in Infinite. I think that's true and it does create an awesome atmosphere but I didn't know why they were attacking me whereas in Infinite, I know why I'm being attacked, "I'm the False Sheppard."
Also the gameplay is better. I’ve gone back to the first to see how it’s held up and on the PS3, the controls annoy the crap out of me and it did that the first time I played it. The shoulder buttons are switched and can’t be unswitched. One thing I’m glad that Bioshock 2 added was the plasmid and weapon dual wield combo which Infinite refined further because in the first you have to basically select your weapon twice: once to unsheathe it and once to use it.
Also I think the minor bad guys are more memorable in Infinite (that’s probably unfair since I’ve played it 3 times on only once with the first).
Sorry if this was TLDR but I just wanted to give my two cents of all the things seen about Bioshock Infinite.
