John Travolta lives in my hometown. I saw him a few times and its kind of cool. My old boss' daughter called him fat at the Wild Hogs premiere and that was awesome. I also met Tim Tebow when I worked at a water park and he was a complete douche.
It's pretty much guaranteed that it'll be in the running for GOTY. I'm unsure about it being a classic though. The gameplay was lackluster and at times tedious. I think it's a high mark for video game story telling and I can see it being called a classic in that regards. The combat severely hampers it though.
I sort of agree with you. I think it's based a bit on the existential idea that you're responsible for your decisions. Booker knew he did wrong and knew he was wronging and knew he would wrong. He accepted responsibility and ended the cycle and he did it by killing himself. So I suppose I agree with you. You just make it sound really depressing lol.
