Bioshock Infinite Completion -Everyone is playing Bioshock 1 instead? No Replay?

This topic is locked from further discussion.

Of the 52 friends in my friends list 11 bought and played Bioshock Infinite. Everyone though it was fun myself included. Of those 11 people 2 have moved on to another game and the other 9 are playing Bioshock 1 instead? No one is playing Bioshock Infinite again?

What does this say about the replay value of this game? Bioshock 1 is alot of fun but dont most people play their new game when they buy it? To me it says something about some major things the devs overlooked with this game. No save means you cant go back, being locked out of going back to other levels also limits its use. NOt being able to use all that you collected on your first play though was a mistake. Can anyone say Bioshock 1? It comes right out and tells you you can replay it again with everything.

 

Which might be why people are replaying the old game instead of the new game. I didnt go back and play Halo 1 for the 5th time after I beat Halo 4. Im sure its in the devs best interest to have people play thier new purchases...

 

Big mistake 2K.

You are really carrying the flag for anyone else who has a problem with Bioshock:Infinite.

Maybe it just means...they're playing Bioshock instead of playing through a game they just completed. Not everyone cares about replay value...

I'm not going to play the same game twice in a row. I own LOTS of video games, so I switch them up. I would think most people do the same. "Big mistake 2K" - Lol, ok guy.

I've played through it twice. The second time mainly to finish up all the collectibles. It will be awhile before I pick it up again, but I will pick it up again. So I'd say it has just as much replay-ability as the first one.

Only games I played through twice in a row are way of the samurai games and Bastion. They will more than likely play it again. It just doesnt have a high replay value I guess.

I even play old school rpg's over again, just not right after I beat it.

I played it three times back to back to back. And now I'm doing simultaneous replays of Bioshock 1 and 2. And also going back through select chapters of Infinite, hunting those last 3 pesky telescopes I can't seem to find. Problem?

After finishing the game, you can start from any chapter you want. 

Also, what are you saying about Bioshock 1? I don't seem to remember it having a "new game +" feature. And I've played it over 10 times.

And finally, you're acting like the developers failed because your friends didn't want to play the game a second time immediately after finishing it. That's incredibly stupid, and doesn't even make any sense, on any level. They played it once, didn't they? They bought the game? Irrational/2K has their money? That sounds like success.

Even if I didn't have other games to play I wouldn't replay the game right away. I know the story, I've found the majority of collectables, I explored the world, and like the first two Bioshock games I hate the combat. Not much reason to replay it immediately.
