I'm Randy.

Platformers are the best games of all time. I do, however, play everything else, too.

If God is up there, he will make it so I don't have to wait in five year breaks for a decent platformer (Mario 64, Sunshine, Galaxy) with the rare exceptions (Sly Cooper, Rayman).

I also don't swear.

So Bioshock... Remember it? It got a lot of praise from critics due to... well, I'm not actually sure why, as I found it to be the most overrated thing since 300. I'm quite surprised how most reviewers thought that you could go through the whole game using only a wrench and your only penalty for death is to go back a few rooms with everything exactly the way it was when you died (including the enemies' health). That's a huge design flaw in my book. One thing I did agree on was the game's story was original and the atmosphere was superb. However, the gameplay flaws held me off of the game until very recently when I started my Bioshock Commentary.

I've also heard from many people, sites, and whatever else that the game had a big twist that would rock my world. I figured "Psh, the Atlas guy is a traitor." I was right about that. What I didn't know was the twist behind the twist. The fact that he can make you do anything you ask by saying "Would you kindly?" It's like, making a story twist out of a linear path. Awesome.

Though it would have been more awesome to have actually seen it happen. I guess "accidentally" is stretch a bit far here. I was reading an article on 1UP where they reveal the "Top 5 Videogame Spoilers." I never thought Bioshock would be on the list, as the game is pretty recent, but it was, and when I scrolled down and saw it, I tried to scroll fast enough to skip it but it seems like my hand was paralyzed and I saw a little too much. I guess it was more of me wanting to finally know what the twist is than "accidentally" but screw off.

Have you guys ever got spoilers when you didn't want to? Let's hear it. Just warn before-hand what you're spoiling so people don't get screwed over.
