BioShock quickly became one of my all time favorite games thanks to its unique setting, interesting story and characters, gameplay, and wonderful soundtrack and sound effects that all worked together to create a one-of-a-kind experience in gaming.

Deservedly so, this game often gets mentioned as one of the most influential games of its time. The setting of Rapture is intriguing and fascinating: the introduction where the player first stumbles upon the City with the Bathysphere was one of the most shocking moments I have experienced. The art deco and time era/frame used by Ken Levine really suited the game and gave it the perfect touch to make things seem a bit more eerie. The story is of course another high point with a continiuing and evolving timeline featuring an unique blend of powerful characters that ran Rapture. You learn more as the game progresses and trhough audio recordings that are scattered as collectables.

Gameplay contains the right amount of variance from standard first person shooters to add light-RPG elements in the game. The PlayStation 3 version of the game features included DLC and a unique PS3 mode (at the time).

Overall, BioShock is one of my favorite games of all time and the type of gaming experience that took things to the next level for me personally in terms of writing and story progression.
