BioShock is one of those games that builds a world you feel immersed in from the start. Playing the game I really got into the character and mood of the game and it was very creepy. As far as the start to a game goes, BioShock does it better than most ive experienced. I started with the PS3 demo and then was given the full meal deal from a friend on my cake day.

100% full disclosure, ive never completed it. I haven't completed it because I can only play it in 10-20 minute increments. The game looks fantastic, has a interesting plot device and the game mechanics are good its just that ... I don't want to exist in that world doing that stuff very long. I find it interesting enough, the political flavor and spin, its just that I don't want to be in a game world where bloody ranting lunatics are trying to kill me every waking second. The game is like a Halloween Haunted House for most of the game it seems and my personal style dictates I only visit Haunted Houses on occasion.

Its unfortunate because this game has such a strong following and they have said how rad the entire game was and the story that took them through it. Then again, I will most likely finish the game, it will just take me 50,000 10 minute sessions.

Anyone interested in SkyoShock aka BioShock Infinite? That game doesn't look quite as "psycho clown circus" but it does seem to still have some insane elements.

I know what you mean. I've gone about half way through BioShock I and BioShock II. After a while the atmosphere just makes the game unenjoyable. Not that I'd change it. It is supremely executed, I just find that I want less and less to pop it back in to the XBoX.
