I feel like I'm going to end up disliking the game, because EVERYONE is going fucking insane over the game, and I feel like it's inevitable that I will be disappointed. Is it just the story that is so great, or is the gameplay actually fun and unique-ish and not too repetitive and requires some amount of creativity and skill(That is pretty much my criteria for a good game, with exceptions).

Okay, this isn't a rule with things like this, but check out the Metacritic scores.

http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/bioshock-infinite

96% aggregate from 48 published game critics, and 90% aggregate from 1664 user reviews. There must be something about it. When it has that kind of unanimous response (and from such a large sample) then it must be a great game, regardless of whether you like or dislike it. I can't wait to play it. Finished Bioshock 2 the other day (finally, after like 3 years) and I'm just finishing up Borderlands 2 which was hanging in the back of my head for a while now. Then it's on to Bioshock Infinite. And it shall be sweet.

You guys are starting to convince me that I should take a gander at that Bioshock series at all!

I don't actually really see what's so wonderfully awesome about Bioshock Infinite. It just seems like another Bioshock that isn't so dark and twisted. I gotta agree, it's cool but not something to flip over a table in excitement and piss yourself like everyone has (in my opinion).

What if I pissed myself but didn't flip a table?

Also what if pissing my pants had nothing to do with playing Bioshock Infinite?

Yeah that's what I was saying when I started playing, more or less. "Wow, this is really pretty and the atmosphere and aesthetics are fantastic, but this isn't seeming much different from the first two Bioshocks."

Then the ending came, and I came along with it.

I find that, in general, Metacritic's scores are fairly unreliable. More often than not though, the positive or negative responses are reasonable. But I have noticed a certain trend of reoccurring flocks of people with severely prejudiced opinions. Personally, I put more trust into the people submitting Gamespot's Userscore.

However, this game in particular seems to be rated relatively reasonably.

I'm severely tempted to check out Infinite but I've found myself at a complete loss for money for the last couple months, I had to trade in a few games just so I could finally play the Walking Dead game and now I want survival instinct. Too much out at the moment and I don't have nearly enough money for it all.

It was a pretty cool experience I must admit.

That's the typical impression of a pirate's jolly roger flag.

The point being that he was saying if you're broke as fuck, pirate the game.

I was trying to say "I don't wanna be around when they drag you to internet jail. Lol who am I kidding everybody pirates".

Some things can't be conveyed well over the internet unfortunately.

I see, my apologies. I figured that living in Israel must have been like living under a rock so I tried to explain it to you.
