I screwed up how I played through the first Bioshock. I played through about 90% of the game when it first came and then dropped it cold turkey (for Halo 3 I think). I loved exploring Rapture, fighting the Splicers and being immersed in the Bioshock setting but I left the game unfinished for a couple years. I eventually went back to Rapture and finished the game, but by that point I was so removed from the story that things didn’t really have the emotional impact it could have had. Same thing happened with Mass Effect, minus the immersion and emotional attachment.
So now I have to decide if I want to interrupt the flow of Mass Effect 2 to make my return to Rapture. I’ve heard that it’s just as wonderfully “explorable” (is that a word? Firefox spell check says it is) as the first one. That really excites me. I’m really looking forward to donning that Big Daddy suit. I’d also like to get back to the business of forming the most elite team of alien warriors in the galaxy. I guess it’s good to options.
Decisions, decisions. What are you going to play this weekend?
