In the interest of not breaking the rules and not ruining the undoubted enjoyment you will have with Bioshock, MAY YOU KINDLY DO NOT READ THIS THREAD if you have not completed the game. This thread is for the interest of discussing "forbidden fruits" freely without it being spoiler tag-heavy thread. So my friend and I finished Bioshock last night at 2:30am. No, we did not "breeze" through it. When my friend played, he explored all the nooks, especially Fleet Theatre and the Apiary while when I played, I mostly followed the objectives. With that said, I think the plot of this game was one of the best I've ever seen, better than Half-Life 2 (yes, I said it). When you meet Andrew Ryan in his office, his dialogue with you was so chilling and cool in a metaphysical way. The "May you kindly" scene downright cool. It's like the game told us to do it, because Atlas told us to do it, so we did it. So it's basically saying that gamers are slaves. BUT what about our choices with the Little Sisters? So was Ryan a good guy, albeit crazy, after all? His death scene nonetheless was too cool. I only wish I can do it myself. I must say I was surprised Atlas turned out bad, or not Atlas at all. The fact that the whole thing had to do with your family connections wasn't too surprising since that's the first thing said in the entire game. I thought the boss fight to be overly derivative despite the advances in gameplay everywhere else. Instead of destroying the boss' crystals, healing stations etc. it's Adam. I would have liked to have used plasmids for the boss fight, but a shotgun/nade launcher combo was all sufficient. Now for the ending. Alot of reviewers said it was abrupt and bad. I agree. I don't know whether there are 2 endings, one if you kill the sisters, another if you save, but my friend and I voted on saving them. I have a feeling it will be the weaker ending betwen the two except them pwning Fontaine. The "looking forward into the future" ending was so UNLIKE Bioshock I was surprised and disappointed. So what of Rapture? What of the Doctor? By the way, I wouldn't be surprised if there's a sequel or expansion that will explore "the rest" of Bioshock. I was expecting a huge kaboom-city-destroyed ending. And "being" a Big Daddy was genius. A huge "you're a f***ing genius" award to whoever thought that up.
