Did Bioshock Infinite impact you emotionally?

Yes, it was truly beautiful 39 82.98%
 
Kind of a little bit 3 6.38%
 
Enjoyed the game but got no emotion from it 3 6.38%
 
No, none at all 2 4.26%
 
Total:47

So I just beat the game.

The last 30 minutes were the most breath taking and powerful moments of a game I've ever experienced.  The narrative is so unbelievably strong and the voice acting is delivered unbelievably. 

Bioshock Infinite is the strongest example of the power of gaming as an art medium ive seen and quite honestly makes virtually everything else in the industry feel just shallow and immature. 

Was anyone else left speechless after beating it?

This absolutely has to be a joke

Journey was miles more emotional than Flower and Bioshock is litteraly in a whole seperate stratosphere than those games

Lol no I enjoyed Flower

Im just saying Bioshock Infinite absolutly blew me away



i liked the setting the atmosphere and the execution of the plot in the game. The ending was good and it managed to surprise me, but it wasn't really something never seen before from a sci fi perspective.

i just wish they had taken a more varied approach to the gameplay. Some stealth parts in the style of Dishonored would have been great.



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

I completely agree with you. Very few games manage to impact me emotionally, but Bioshock Infinite is one of those few games that achieved that goal.

I'm torn on this game. On one hand, everything other than the art was amazing. On the other hand, the combat was a massive let down.

The ending, as you said, was beautiful and easily ranks somewhere in my top 5 endings of all time. The environment, art, characters, story, sound, everything was also spot-on. In the chapel after the lighthouse I probably spent 30 minutes just taking it in. When the Vox started revolting, you could literally feel them ripping the city apart. It was all just amazing.

Then there was the combat. The spaces were just so large and confusing and you approached every enemy the same way it seemed. It's not that it was bad, it's just it wasn't good at all and when compared to everything else, it just soured the experience. You have the handymen which were simple, you have frustratingly difficult things like Lady Comstock's ghost, and you have wasted opportunities like Comstock House. I don't want to rant, but the combat was easily the lowest point in the game and is the reason I don't really want to rush and play it again.

That said though, the game was still amazing.
