It took me multiple playthroughs to really *get* what the original BioShock was about, 'til that point all it was to me was a first person shooter with some RPG elements, a neat setting built around complex and often dark themes and a brilliant narrative twist. It wasn't until about my third playthrough that I started to look at proceedings through a more critical view. BioShock is a startling commentary on the limitations of video games as a medium and why it requires an individual to give up a certain amount of 'control' to be able to truly appreciate the nuances of this new form of art.
