was the most overrated game not just last year but probably in past few years. I might even go as far to say most overrated of the 7th gen, but that's a bit extreme. Bioshock Infinite was extremely overrated. I finally bought it with the Bioshock Trilogy pack on Amazon during the Christmas sale, where for some reason it was cheaper than the game on its own. After beating it in a mere 8 hours, I can say I enjoyed it, but would never pay 60 dollars for it. Yet somehow it is one of the highest rated games on Metacritic. Frankly, it was very flawed. There was the craptastic tower defense fight, the nonsensical two weapon limit, and the absolute lack of the need for the player to figure out where to navigate to because an arrow on the ground will tell which exact steps to take. However, the worst offense was the story. The story has been praised almost universally by critics. However, the story really has no purpose. Booker and Elizabeth's relationship doesn't even seem to have any significance to it from an artistic perspective. The game is supposedly all about them, but it never really makes much of a point with them. Then there is of course the various themes the game "covers." The game goes hey look, that guys is racist/violent/evil/nationilist/overly-zealous. However, it never actually makes it a point. The game is just using the characters and setting to appear "artsy-fartsy." However, it doesn't really do anything artistic beyond having some pretty graphics and being a tad creative. The game throws in plot twist, emotional moments, and social inequality to convince you that it is the future of art. In reality, it just an average shooter with a lot of fat covering it. Can some explain to me why everyone seems to love this game to death?
