del Toro: Bioshock Infinite Is Beautiful, A "Great Mindfu**"
We told you that Bioshock Infinite was an excellent game with a fantastic story.
And it seems noted film director Guillermo del Toro agrees. The "Pan's Labyrinth" and "Pacific Rim" director told Polygon that Irrational's masterpiece is a "great mindfu**."
"Two days ago, my daughter and I finished--she finished it before me--Infinite, BioShock Infinite. It's such a great mindf*ck. It's also beautiful and I think, obviously, Levine always has such beautiful cross-cultural references, like Comstock and the Civil War and all that, I have to explain them to my daughter--I don't explain Comstock, that's a little heavy. I did explain, you know, he's a puritan guy, blah, blah, blah. I love the richness of those worlds. He's one of the best world creators in any of the visual forms, period."
We agree wholeheartedly with that assessment. del Toro was hard at work on a proposed game trilogy entitled inSane, but scheduled publisher THQ went down and the project has apparently disappeared. Still, the director wouldn't mind trying to make a "proper" game based on "Pacific Rim." As for Bioshock Infinite, it was the highest rated game of 2013 (via Metacritic), until The Last Of Us blew critics away.
Bottom line- play both.
