Anyone play BioShock yet?

It is one of the best gaming experiences I have had. It may be appropriate for SpiderWebers who like the moral decisions that Jeff's games bring but are looking for a little more shoot-um-up action. Plus, I am a big fan of the Brave New Randesque game world.

Check out the Wired Review.

By the way, I am kind of sick of seeing the post count posts and other meaningless polls. For once I will give credit to Iffy: that poll was hilarious, although perhaps inappropriate.

I can't get enough of this game. It's moody, artistic, smooth as butter, and creepy as hell. It's like the perfect adventure game melded into a shooter. It's been raining nonstop for the past week here in Iowa so I curl up on the couch, crank it up, and sit in the dark and play the night away.

I've seen the demo... meh, it looks good, if you are into FPS's. I like the background music a lot.

The sole reason I stay away from both Doom and Fear, is the fact that I am somewhat weary of creepy games. As it is, I get all nervous from FPSs, but if it gets dark and I can't really see well what's happening, I already get totally freaked out. Reading the Wired reviw, the creepiness is mentioned more than once, which doesn't give me a comfortable feeling. While on the one hand I get somewhat curious to know what the plot twist they speak of is, and I get curious to know what moral dillemas I will encounter, I hate creepiness (Mind you I'd probably just blast the little sisters away).

And that's why I like Avernum: Because of its graphics, because it is turn based and because its from an angle that's sort of above the player, I feel I can see what happens around me at all times, and I don't get freaked out. This makes, for me, for relaxing gameplay.
