Now, as I write this, "Bioshock 2" is waiting for me at the post office. Ken Levine and his Irrational Games team had nothing to do with it. The question is if the new developers "get it" - I will look into this ... stay tuned.

Would you kindly?
Bioshock (2007) has one of the best openings in a computer game ever and it has some of the sharpest writing of any game. Yes, I know the ending didn't work and the whole "moral choice"-thing was a bit shallow. But the way the back ground story was conveyed and the way the "Would you kindly"-meta layer clicked at the climax really blew me away.
