my love for Bethesda's master RPG's says Skyrim
I agree with him that BioShock 2's endings were better. Whilst both have the pants-on-head retarded system of having you kill one Little Sister and making you completely evil even though you saved 300, at least the second makes this an interpretation of your actions by another character (at least poorly).SpaceBat said:Disagreed with the first statement. Bioshock had a pretty excellent story for todays standards (albeit not incredible in general), but some might not have enjoyed it anyway. I would understand why.The_ModeRazor said:On one hand, you have a game by the people who made Bioshock, which really wasn't such a great game gameplay-wise (or even story-wise, come to think of it).
Then they made Bioshock 2. Gameplay a bit better, atmosphere all gone, story a bit better, and a cool ending. Yay.
The bold part of the second statement in your post, I just can't understand. Bioshock 2 had by all means an absolutely atrocious story. The characters and plot were so bad, I simply cannot play through it again, ever. It was one of the things that makes Bioshock 2 unable to compare to good games. Also, the ending was pretty bad, due to it using an incredibly stupid formula to figure out which ending to show you. It took away control at the worst possible moment, something that should not have happened in Bioshock 2's case.
This is the first time I've ever seen someone prefer Bioshock 2's story over the first and I've visited various Bioshock forums. Nothing wrong with having a different opinion, of course and neither of us are right or wrong, but I'm surprised nonetheless.
Crikey, I think we've found our one.ShadowDude112 said:Well, since Skyrim comes out in November and Bioshock only has a release date of Q2 2012, there's not much to compare, But, I guess I'll say neither. Sonic Generations for me all the way. With some Skyward Sword and Arkham City in there too. So, I guess I'll be too busy to deal with those games.
Do you have any idea how annoying this is? Just pointing it out.Jack and Calumon said:Calumon: What if I can't play either? Do I get the money, cos I am kinda hungry!
You took the words out of my mouth.ChildofGallifrey said:I'm going with BI on this one. No offense to the massive fanbase, but I've never enjoyed a TES game. Bioshock just had this wonderful, fairly unique world and feel to it, and I'm interested in seeing how that translates to an entirely different setting.
You might have misread both our comments. Neither of us said that it was better or worse than the first game. The person I quoted said Bioshock 2 had a cool ending, I said that it has an incredibly bad ending, that's it.Woodsey said:I agree with him that BioShock 2's endings were better.

In BioShock, if I killed a couple of Little Sisters, I came back to the surface and took over the fucking world.
In BioShock 2, the daughter interprets how you've behaved and acts in a way that she thinks you would agree with. Granted, its still handled according to a bizarre balance-sheet, but it makes more sense.
It's funny that they say Bioshock in the sky would be boring..and then they describe Infinite as Bioshock with the risk of fallingHorny Ico said:Ahem. [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/108421-Irrational-BioShock-in-the-Sky-Would-Be-F-king-Boring] Besides, Bioshock 2 was made by 2K, not Irrational.Echo136 said:Skyrim, hands down. Bioshock 2 was too much of a disappointment, so I have little hope for Bioshock Infinite.
