Bioshock Infinite Gameplay Proves Atmosphere Importance
When we tell you Bioshock Infinite will be a Game of the Year nominee in 2011, we've never been more serious about anything ever.
The original team is back, the game looks amazing, and although we still have to wait, we already have around 10 minutes of gameplay right here. In addition to fantastic controls and the depth and diversity offered by Plasmids vs. standard weapons, Bioshock is best known for its atmosphere. And within the first three or four minutes of this video, you'll understand why. Was anyone else sufficiently freaked out by that woman sweeping in the midst of an inferno? And how's about the over-the-top freakiness of the city in general?
Tough to take aim through a flurry of bothersome crows. The entire thing is just epic, and I'm once again reminded of why I loved the first two games so much. There's an environmental originality in these games we don't really see anywhere else; it's a matter of emotion and immersion, although it's a little difficult to pinpoint. But anyway, this is looking fantastic and we just can't wait to play it. How's about you?
