How to make me buy a game.

I’ve just finished Bioshock Infinite, I hadn’t realised it, but I was stuck on the final fight sequence for a week. Silly me replaying the last ten minutes over and over again, I eventually admitted defeat and dropped the difficulty level.

What happened next sobered me. I feel at a loss, empty, pensive. The game moved me, seriously moved me and I want to collect my thoughts before I pen anything about my experience. I’ve spent the last two days devouring any and all information about the story, the more I read the more blown away I am by the experience. The delays were worth it.

If you haven’t played it, play it. If you don’t want to play it, watch the movie that’s made up of the cutscenes and gameplay, at 3.5 hours it’s a lot shorter and cheaper than playing it through. If you can play it. Passively watching and interacting are two different experiences.

I want to talk about it, I just need some time to process.

Maybe I need another game to get my mind off this one? Suggestions welcome!
