I haven't played either Bioshock 1 or 2 and am wondering if I need, or should play them before Infinite comes out. I'm trying to not miss any big games this year and don't want to be left in the dark for Bioshock Infinite. Is this the sort of game where my experience will be enhanced if I have played the earlier games or a completely different world/story like the Far Cry games?.
What do you think? Should I bother taking the time to play 1 and 2, or catch up on some other games I've missed, like Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 or Age of Empires 3.
