Why Bioshock 2 is the worst game this year.

   0
I am totally and utterly bewildered as to why 2k would want to make a second Bioshock. The first game was near perfect, one of the best games ever made. The story was concluded masterfully, there were no loose ends, and there were some amazing underlying themes. Sure, the gameplay was a little shitty (more on that in a minute) but from a narrative perspective, Bioshock 1 is one of the highlights of the medium. Not only did it craft a compelling tale of a fallen underwater utopia, but it also was a sophisticated satirization of the very nature of video games.

Compare that to Bioshock 2, which basically says "hey, remember all that shit you did in the first game? None of it fucking mattered." and then goes on to basically ruin everything. Adam? It's fucking magic now. Big Daddies? Hulking monstrosities devoid of any humanity? Fuck no, they're fucking ninjas now. The retarded shit goes on and fucking on and fucking on.

I guess, if you were thick, you could argue that the gameplay improvements make it worthwhile. Problem is, Bioshock was never about the gameplay. If it was, the weapons would do much more damage and you'd get more ammo, instead of being in bullshit fights all the time where it's impossible to avoid getting hurt. I mean, talk about shitty game design. But like in survival horror games, shitty gameplay is sort of excusable. It's the atmosphere you're there for, and the shitty combat mechanics contribute to that, as do the monotonous hacking minigames. By trying to improve those things, 2k has ruined the atmosphere in bioshock 2, just like Capcom ruined Resident Evil when they made number 4.

All in all, I'd say Bioshock 2 is well on its way to being the worst game of the year. Pretty much everything they could have done wrong they did. Realy, there was no need to make the game at all. I'm insulted that they think I'm so stupid as to let them milk my hard earned money with this peace of shit sequel. Let's all agree to boycott the inevitable bioshock 3 and put an end to this fucking bullshit.

For serious, guys, this is a thing we need to do for the good of the industry. Originality is being drained from the medium with each passing year. Original, innovative games are almost impossible to find outside of the indy market. Letting 2k get away with this is just another step down a slippery slope to fucking shit like Uncharted becoming the standard. Stop this shit now, before it's too late.
