I hope it does well on sales as well.

"Best Original Game" is such a huge goddam farce. Ugh.

#53 Posted by JamesBr (15 posts) -

After the mediocre release that was Bioshock 2, Infinite looks absolutely amazing. As much as I LOVED the hybrid 1930's Art Deco/Steampunk style of Bioshock, the turn-of-the-century industrialization/Dieselpunk style speaks to me so much more. It's interesting how both games are so isolated by very different circumstances. I really hope this game rocks. 
From the bottom of the ocean to high in the sky (and if you count Systemshock, space and beyond!), I'd love to see them try again with yet a different environment. Middle of a vast desert? Deep underground? North or South Pole? Hopefully, whatever the next game is, it won't be Bioshock Infinite 2: More of the Same.
 
In the meantime, I'm on the edge of my seat for this game.

Best PC game: Bioshock

Best Console game: Skyrim

Best PC game? You know that game is being made for the consoles. The honor of best PC should probably be Battlefield 3.

How did Battlefield win best Multiplayer? Was it that graphically amazing  30 second trailer? Or did we as the public miss something?

What makes Battlefield 3 an "action game" and BioShock Infinite an "action adventure game"?

Yeah, you missed the part where the critics played the multiplayer.

Alex, I bet you enjoy torturing us with the words "Bioshock" and "Infinite" repeating over and over again in a list based format.

@darkecho117: The winners weren't chosen by the public. They were chosen by game journalists who attended the show and got to play many demos the public hasn't necessarily seen yet.

Huh, I guess I don't remember hearing anyone talk about BF3 multiplayer. Unless they were told not to talk about it. It's just weird since multiplayer is Battlefields strong point and was apparently best of show but the public hasn't seen anything yet.

Oh I know that, I just don't recall anyone talking about it. Seems like DICE made a poor choice in not releasing anything substantial on the multiplayer at E3 then if it was the "Best Multiplayer."

@FoolishChaos: Yeah, that was more than a little puzzling for me too. Either the people giving out the awards are very confused or these games are not being made at all the way I had assumed they were.

War isn't an adventure. It's a torture.

Am I the only one whose puss isn't totally wet for this game? I mean, Bioshock was good in a "not at good as System Shock 2" kind of way. I feel like the people making this game eat their own farts. Obviously. I might also point out that I'm not too big on the Ayn Rand inspiration "Altas Shrugged" super city for super people (white rich people) for the game. I'm very politically opposed to everything she stood for.

I saw the Infinite demo and I really don't get what people are getting so excited about.  It's more Bioshock and last time they made more Bioshock everyone decided to hate it.

Uh... so was the game.

All I really know about Bioshock Infinite is birds, rail-zipping, and cleavage. Lots of cleavage.

BioShock Infinite is a new IP in everything except name. It has nothing to do with previous BioShock titles and really shares nothing period with previous BioShock titles except that the word "BioShock" is in the name. At least this is my understanding of the game. So I'm totally OK with it being called a new IP.

Alex, is Game of the Show the most covered, or the most coveted award? Or both?

#72 Posted by spiralsin (156 posts) -

Bioshock Infinite is without a doubt, my most anticipated game. Everything about it just looks amazing. Waiting is the hardest part. :)

Wait, Bioshock Infinite was nominated for best handheld game? Is it coming to the Vita or something?

It is, well, not the same game as the console versions. But the best handheld game award actually went to Sound Shapes.

Looks like a good day for irrational.

#75 Posted by TatsurouXIII (649 posts) -

it's gonna be funny when it turns out to be a really mediocre game.

Nah, I'm feeling the same way. I doubt I'll buy it when it comes out. I completely agree about the first Bioshock too. I loved System Shock and I was rather disappointed by Bioshock. It was an ok game, nothing more.

My new found love for Mass Effect makes me say boo! Mass Effect 3 looked so damn good. Sure what they showed wasn't the parts of ME people come for but I was rather excited to see the game play will be even more fun then 2 was. Then again I was never a fan of Bioshock and thought the first games is way overrated.
