Bioshock


I bought a copy of this from ebay a couple of months ago, and have now managed to finish it (twice). I've been really impressed with it, principally the way that the narrative functions within the game, the moral complexity that is possible, and the way in which it functions as a commentary on Ayn Rand and the implications of her philosophy. My imagination now has thoughts of Splicers and plasmids flitting through it unbidden....

I hadn't played a proper PC game for many years, so this - even though it is now two years old - really raised my eyebrows. Highly recommended, if you like this sort of thing.
