coming out in less than 20 days, anyone else preordered this?

There is also a gigabyte promotion where if you buy 7900 series graphics card you get Bioshock Infinite and Crysis 3 for free.

I'm thinking about picking this game up, although I'm yet to even start Bioshock 2 yet. Based on the dodgy development history, I'd have to wait until others have played the game before I buy it.

Theres always a Gigabyte promotion. I bought a 7950 6 months ago and got Crysis 3, sleeping dogs and hitman absolution. I would have gladly traded Crysis 3 for Infinite tho. It looks good.

I wouldn't buy it if I were you. I regret the decision as I know I will not go back to it again. I didn't play the second Bioshock, so I don't think it is necessary to play it first. I would, however, recommend playing the original Bioshock first though. Not only is it a far superior experience than Infinite, but it is indirectly related to this one as well.In fact, I'll sell you my copy for $30. I really won't play it again.

Don't need to play the other ones (the second ones barely even worth the play in the first place). It's separate from the others at least in most every important aspect. It's not radically different or anything, it's just separate.

Unlike Monty I thought the game was better than the first BioShock, although that game is also brilliant and totally worth playing in it's own right.

Despite the fact that the twists and truths make it seem like the game is simply trying too hard to seem smart, Infinite is still just a fun ride.

I loved this game, and the ending was fantastic.

Edit: Although, it did seem like they were trying too hard.

This 110%. My wife actually likes watching some of the games I play and remembers a great deal of them. She remembers the storyline of the first Bioshock 5 years ago. And when she watched the ending to Infinite, the very first thing she said was, "The writers were trying way too hard on this one." It absolutely did not need to be as deep as they were trying to make it. I do applaude them for the effort, trying to make a videogame experience perhaps longer lasting by creating discussion; but in trying too hard, it just didn't have the lasting effect on me that I think they were intending. Some of the best gaming experiences are when the developers leave things open, or pull back a bit and not explain everything (ie: Shadow of Colossus).All in all, I just didn't buy into it. It's not that I don't understand the ending, it's just that I think that the writers made it way more busy than it needed to be.

Experiencing Rapture probably helped with me taking in Columbia and appreciating its detail and style.

First of all, I envy your marriage. I had immersed myself into the game because of what I'd heard about the story and about Elizabeth. I had enough of a sense of closure with this game than something like SotC. I mean, I never really got to know the horse, right? :lol:

I'm told that you don't need to have played the first two Bioshocks to play this one, but is it worth the $60? I'm only hearing good things about it, but I'm still undecided whether to buy this game or Far Cry 3.

FarCry is an open world shooter/stealth game. Bioshock is way more directed and story focused. Both are worth $60 imo, but for different reasons. Definitely don't need to play the first two games in either series to enjoy the new ones.

Bioshock 1 is definitely worth playing, and since I'm assuming you've played Infinite, it does reward the BS1 players at an emotional level.
